Healthy Tips from ANA's Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation™ Blog

Laura Hixon, MSNE, RN-BC, ONC

Happy summer! Many are finished or finishing school and ready for a break this summer. Nurses at the bedside, faculty or others work hard and play hard out in the sun.

A very important consideration is hydration especially in the hottest months of summer. Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation notes that even mild dehydration can cause anxiety, moodiness, poor concentration and short term memory loss.

Encourage fluid intake, replace fluids lost with exercise and stay cool to prevent insensible water loss. Staying cool and hydrated in the summer and during work and play will make the summer the best I can be. You can join the Hack your Hydration challenge staring in July!
