Especially importan to check as things are heating up out there!

Drinking plenty of water is even more important during the hot summer months! If you feel any of the signs listed above, drink a glass of water (8-oz or more), and see if you feel better within 30 minutes. Dehydration can be scary so carry water with you in a reusable bottle and fill up often! No need to spend money on buying bottled water when you are out! #water #stayhydrated #knowthesigns
