How Much Water Should We Drink In The Summer? Is 8 Glasses Enough?
The 8- glass rule is inaccurate in general as well as for summer and is a myth for a few reasons. First, it leaves out the quantity per glass—it means to say 8-glasses of 8-ounces of water is enough—which is the “8 by 8rule.” Even the “8 by 8” rule however, is not supported by evidence. But it is easy to remember, which makes it ok to use but better stated as, “8-glasses of 8-ounces of fluid (not just water) is the least amount you should drink a day.” Second, the amount of water you need to drink daily in summer or any season depends on several factors including:
- Your Health
- How much you exercise
- Where you live
- What you wear especially when exercising
