  • I've read that when you're feeling thirsty, you're already dehydrated.

    Being thirsy, dark pee, dizziness, headaches.

  • Don't wait for thirst to tell you that you need fluids.

    Not having much urine, dark urine. Feeling weak and sick. If you sweat a lot during exercise, or if you vomit a lot or have diarrhea, it is easy to become dehydrated.

    I'd heard that whenever you use the bathroom to also take a drink. It makes sense- get some out, get some in.

  • You can hydrate yourself without drinking water. Try gatorade, OJ, popsicles, ice chips, etc.
