Quench Your Thirst, But Don’t Go Overboard

Rising temperatures and more outdoor activity mean it’s time to increase your fluid intake. The body needs more hydration in warm weather, especially during exercise. But how much is enough? When is the best time to drink? And which is better, water or sports drinks?
