Good Day, Ladies,
People who get dehydrated do not always feel thirsty, and that is why you cannot let feelings of thirst determine your water consumption. You can get dehydrated even in winter, not just during a heat wave.
For myself, I found a glass of water with ice and fruit and a straw works best. I carry it around the house and outside and in the car, but of course that means I can misplace it and have to get another one. Days later I might find one parked up on top a book shelf or sitting on a post outside by the clothesline.
Headaches can also be a sign of dehydration, although not always.
Sometimes I like to pour hot water over berries in a teacup, let it cool a little and then sit and rest for a tea break.
It is important to remind yourself to look after your body and mind with water and rest, because no one will regulate you at home, except yourself alone.
