Dude, are you dehydrated? When we’re at the convention we’ve been looking forward to all year, we want to feel our best. We want to be in fighting form to be able to squeeze every drop of fun out of our weekend! Much like training to run a race, we’ve got to take extra good care of ourselves to be able to withstand the feats of derring-do! If we’re going to walk 5 times as far as customary, sleep ½ as much as usual, and perhaps enjoy some adult beverages, we’ve got to check under the hood and make sure to top off the oil!Continue reading Dude, Are You Dehydrated?
You’d be surprised how many times someone shows up at Usagi Medical Group (UMG) with problems that could be avoided for the want of adequate water.
We get it. You’re walking around a lot at the convention, surrounded by tons of other warm bodies, and you’re having a great time. We know it’s hard to overlook the water thing when you’re having so much fun. But if you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. If you continue to ignore your thirst, you may feel tired, have muscle cramps, dizziness, or other serious symptoms.
Drink water, not an energy drink. Always have water on hand, and don’t forget to drink it. Water regulates your body temperature and lubricates your joints. It helps transport nutrients to give you energy and keep you healthy.
UMG makes sure there are water stations throughout the con, and that hotel staff will replenish them on request.
