Hey Guys!

Do you know that staying hydrated is crucial, especially during the hot and humid summer in South Korea. The scorching temperatures and increased humidity can lead to rapid dehydration, which can affect your overall health and well-being. Water plays a vital role in our bodies, helping to regulate temperature, aid digestion, lubricate joints, transport nutrients, and keep our skin healthy. During these warm months, it’s easy to get dehydrated, so it’s important to watch for signs like thirst, dry mouth, dark urine, fatigue, dizziness, and headaches.


To stay hydrated, aim to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily. Eating water-rich foods like cucumbers, watermelon, and oranges can also help. Try to avoid too much caffeine and alcohol since they can dehydrate you. Setting reminders on your phone can keep you on track with your water intake, and adding lemon or mint to your water can make it more enjoyable.


Monitor your urine color; light yellow is a good sign, while darker shades mean you need more water. Wear light clothing and stay in cool places during peak heat hours. If you're spending time outdoors, drink water before you head out, take regular breaks, and carry extra water with you.


With these simple tips, you can keep hydrated and stay healthy during the summer here in South Korea.
