Active Summer Solutions


Summer is here, and bringing with it the warmer weather! It’s no secret that staying hydrated is important, but at this time of the year the importance is magnified. If you’re planning on an active summer, our friends at Aqua Optima have some tips to keep you healthy, hydrated and happy!


Right Way To Start The Day

We all have our own morning routines; some of us jump straight into the shower whilst others desperately need that cup of coffee. No matter what activities you have planned for the day, Aqua Optima recommend that before you do anything, start with a cold glass of the old H2O. On a daily basis, men are advised to drink 2.5 litres of water and women 2*, so having that initial glass when you wake up will stand you in good stead for the day ahead.

If you’re taking on your local parkrun in the sun, Aqua Optima has some steps you can take to stay at your best.

  • Firstly, make sure to drink plenty of water before hand. This will help with preventing cramp and improve your energy levels.
  • Take a re-usable water bottle that you’re comfortable running with. So you can top-up as you go.
  • By the time you finish, you’ll have sweated out most of the liquids you took in. Remember to slowly re-hydrate yourself in the following hours.
