Drink extra liquids this summer and reap the benefits

The summer is almost here. While we can all take this opportunity to get out and get active, we do have to take precautions to protect ourselves against the summer heat.

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things we can do in the midst of all our summer activities. Drinking plenty of liquids carries many benefits. It prevents dehydration, kidney stones, UTIs and even sunburn.

Carry water or sports drinks

To get into the habit of drinking enough liquids, one good strategy is to keep a bottle of water or sports drink around at all times, especially when out and about. This is difficult for those in wheelchairs, but we have many cup holders made just for the purpose of holding your cold beverage.

Hold large bottles
