The summer is officially here in all its sweaty splendor, which means it’s even more important to stay on top of water consumption. Dehydration won’t just slow you down; it can also cause various physical problems like headaches, light-headedness and fatigue.

The Utah State University Extension has tips to make sure you’re consuming the recommended 8 glasses a day. When properly hydrated, your body is able to perform crucial functions like nutrient distribution to cells or toxin filtration within organs while in the summer heat. Be sure to drink extra fluids in high temperatures, especially if you’re engaging in physical activity, and avoid caffeinated beverages that increase water loss.
