A Note on (Re)-Hydration


Water.

A necessity.

As a tennis player, you need to keep yourself hydrated all the time- in other words, keep re-hydrating yourself- since the body loses fluids through sweat and urine.

So here’s the million dollar tip:

Don’t wait till you are thirsty to drink water.

Thirst is a sign that you are already de-hydrated.

Keep sipping on water continuously. Force yourself and your kids/students to keep drinking water at regular intervals.

Then, slowly, it will become a habit.

Think of it this way- You don’t wait for the fuel to run out completely before you re-fuel your automobile, do you?

Similarly, don’t wait for yourself to feel thirsty- it is a sign that the body‘s fuel tank is empty. Re-fuel it (with water, sports drink & coconut water) before you feel thirsty.

Jet, Set, Go!
