We take water in with the fluids we drink and with the foods we eat, and we lose water when we sweat or use the bathroom. Avoiding dehydration, then, has four main aspects. One, knowing dehydration is potentially dangerous and should be avoided. Two, knowing it's important to get enough water into our bodies, primarily from drinking water or similar beverages. Three, knowing to be aware of and limit the amount of water we lose during the day. And four, knowing how to monitor the amount of water in our bodies and our level of dehydration.
