Walking Tips

The Department of Health recommends that we should drink about 1.2 litres of fluids a day. If you’re exercising you may need more, particularly in warm weather. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink, as this is one of the first signs of dehydration. Rather take regular sips as you go along.

Plain tap or still mineral water is your best option. Fizzy drinks are not good for quenching thirst as they are difficult to drink quickly. Fruit juice and non-diet soft drinks contain sugar which will boost your energy but aren’t as effective as water at keeping you hydrated.

Isotonic and sports drinks are formulated to improve the rate at which water is absorbed, but water is still the healthiest option and best way to rehydrate.

Avoid drinking unboiled or unpurified water from streams, and try to carry emergency water purification tablets if you’re hillwalking.
