Mesa Wellness 360 Hydration Challenge
Hey there, City of Mesa Boomers! Summer has arrived, and all Arizonans know what that means…EXTREME HEAT! Temperatures climb into the triple digits, leaving all of us desert dwellers susceptible to heat-related injuries. One of the simplest and most important ways to keep your body safe and healthy is to stay well hydrated!
Even in milder temperatures, most of us don’t get enough water into our bodies on a daily basis. It sounds easy enough, but did you know that by the time you feel thirsty, you are already mildly dehydrated?
The amount of water you need per day depends mainly on your weight. It is recommended that you drink half your body weight in ounces daily. (For example: if your body weight is 150 pounds, your hydration goal will be 75 ounces of water per day.)
To help you keep your cool during the scorching summer heat, we are challenging you to stay hydrated!

*Note: In rare cases, you can drink too much water resulting in a condition called hyponatremia. Usually, hyponatremia (also known as water intoxication) is the result of drinking too much water too quickly while performing intense exercise (and sweating a lot!). The level of sodium (salt) in your blood drops too low causing an imbalance in the cells of your body. If the imbalance becomes severe enough, it leads to swelling that can quickly turn serious or even fatal. It’s important to note, however, that this occurs in extremely rare cases. If you drink a moderate amount of water (or electrolyte-packed beverage) while exercising, you’re good to go!
