How much water to drink on a hot day?

Rejoice, because the sun has at long last begun to shine. The danger of being very dehydrated is increased when there is a lot of sunlight.

Warm weather causes us to sweat more, which puts us in danger of being dehydrated since water is being lost from our bodies via perspiration. That implies we need to make sure we stay hydrated.

While it is recommended that we drink at least one litre of water each day, the question arises as to how much water we should be taking in when the temperature is really high.

The National Health Service (NHS) suggests consuming 1.2 litres of water per day, which is equivalent to six to eight glasses. 

However, some experts advise a much higher amount, suggesting that we consume up to three litres of water per day, provided that it is done so at intervals throughout the day.

If you drink an excessive amount of water in a short period of time, you run the risk of developing water intoxication, also known as overhydration.
