How to tell if you’re drinking enough water in a heat wave

 

Between the sweltering heat within our houses and offices, to leaving the house in an outfit that only intensifies the heat. We also seem to forget that sun cream exists whenever the sun comes out.

Another thing we forget to do is to drink enough water. It’s vital to keep hydrated during any hot weather, but especially during a heat wave.

If you think you’re drinking enough but not sure, there is one way to check.

Nutritionist Amanda Ursel told The Sun that one very effective way of checking if you’re drinking enough water during a heat wave is to check your urine. Depending on the colour, it will indicate if you need to drink more.

She said:”If it’s pale and clear that’s good. If it’s dark orange and whiffy, you need to drink more.”

On average, you should drink approximately eight glasses of water per day.

This would increase if you’re exercising and according to your weight and age.
