WINTER HYDRATION

Dehydration in the winter can be even more common than in the summer months.  We lose a great deal of water from our bodies in winter due to respiratory fluid loss through breathing.  Our bodies are working harder under the weight of extra clothing and though you may not feel as though you are overheating, you are still sweating and the dry, cold air just causes it to evaporate more quickly.  So, even if you are not feeling hot and thirsty during the winter months, be sure to try to drink 8 glasses of water a day.
