Hydration is a critical component of your health. In fact, water makes up at least half of your body weight if you’re a woman and more than half if you’re a man. Drink water throughout the day, especially in hot weather or during exercise. It’s particularly important to drink lots of fluids if you start to notice symptoms of dehydration.
