It’s a common warning to drink water in order to avoid dehydration during the summer months. However, dehydration can occur during any season…not just summer. While we may not be dealing with the extreme temperatures and humidity that are signature characteristics of the summer, our bodies can still become dehydrated during the winter for a few surprising reasons!
Indoor Heat Can Cause Dehydration
While indoor heat is often vital during the colder months, it can also be what is dehydrating your body. Indoor air is commonly very dry to begin with. When this dry air is combined with a heating source, it exposes you to “dry heat.” When you spend the majority of your day inside in the dry heat, this can cause you to lose fluids and become dehydrated.
Not Drinking Enough Water
Just because it’s not 100º outside doesn’t mean that you can leave the water bottle at home. No matter how hot or cool the temperature is, our bodies still need water to stay hydrated. When the temperature starts to drop, many people forget to grab their water bottles before leaving the house, but it’s just as important as ever to keep drinking water throughout the day.
Not Recognizing Dehydration Symptoms
Signs of dehydration can be sneakier in the colder months. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it could be time to increase your water intake.
- Dry mouth
- Dry skin
- Lack of energy
- Problems concentrating
- Not going to the bathroom regularly
- Yellow pee
