How much water we should drink in the heat

With warm season coming we begin to drink more water, which is logical: the increased evaporation of moisture from the skin surface must be compensated. Among the supporters of a healthy lifestyle (HLS) there is a belief that even at a moderate temperature, you need to drink at least 8 glasses (about two liters) of water per day. Therapist Olga Kashubina shared her thoughts on this matter with Sputnik Radio.
How much water we should drink in the heat

Any artificially established norms are redundant, believes the therapist, author of the book “How a doctor would be sick: little tricks of great healthcare” Olga Kashubina. According to her, there is no need to arrange a “water torture” for yourself following far-fetched rules: your body will tell you when and how much water you need to drink to make up for the lack of moisture.

“The thirst center in our body is pretty well made. If it was ill-built, you would quickly find out about it, since you would suffer from dehydration. It is okay to follow your thirst and do nothing else. You will not get sick from this, but on the contrary, you will not tire yourself with “water torture” and chase the norm, which has come from nowhere,” explained Olga Kashubina in an interview with Radio Sputnik.

We have to keep in mind that dehydration can occur very quickly in the heat; that especially regards children.

“I would like to mention heat and small children. Children often do not follow the signals of thirst, and they just need to be offered water often, so that they do not forget to drink. They may quickly become dehydrated and may not feel well in the heat. Children should be offered water once every half an hour during the walk, and this will be good. As for adults, the thirst signals are so obvious that people of sound mind will never miss them,” said Olga Kashubina.
