There are lots of great outdoor activities you can be doing when the summer sun starts to shine. You can fit in some great days out, and there is so much choice for activities for families, couples, friends, or by yourself. The problem is, when you’re having so much fun in the sun, it can be difficult to remember to stay hydrated, especially for kids.
To help you stay hydrated during summer activities, it’s always a good idea to take plenty of bottled water with you so that it’s easier to remember to drink enough. Here are some fun summer activities that you should definitely pack water for.
A day at the beach
Going to the beach is the perfect summer day out, whether you prefer to spend it sunbathing, in the sea, or making sandcastles. Whatever you do, it’s important to stay hydrated, especially if you accidentally swallow seawater, which is dehydrating. Even if you’re just lying on the sand, the heat will leave you sweating. A good trick is to pack bottles of ice water so that it stays cool in the sun, or pack a cooler of water bottles.
Swimming can be a great way to cool down, but we tend to underestimate how much we’re exerting ourselves. You don’t notice the fact that you’re sweating when you’re surrounded by water, so we don’t realize that we’re becoming more and more dehydrated. Leave a bottle of water poolside so you can stay hydrated throughout.
Fresh water is a camping essential because you never know if there will be a good source of water there. Campgrounds should have places you can fill up your water bottles, but it’s a good idea to stock up so you don’t have to keep trekking back and forth to the faucet. As well as keeping you easily hydrated, you can use bottled water for cooking and washing, too.
Hiking or walking in the sun is a pretty exhausting activity, and you will sweat a lot! You might be reluctant to carry a lot of weight on your back, but it’s important to pack plenty of water in case there aren’t many opportunities to fill up on the trail.
A picnic can be a great family day out or a romantic way to spend the day as a couple. You’ll remember the blankets, sandwiches, and other snacks, but water can be easy to forget. Even if you’re packing juice or champagne, for example, it’s always good to have water there as an option. You can use it for washing sticky food off your hands as well as for drinking.
