Fun Fact Friday!


As we enter the hotter time of year and start to enjoy all the festivities that summer brings us, these fun facts might come in handy to know:

Studies suggest that if the amount of water in your body is reduced by just 1% you start to feel thirsty! Research shows that as little as 1% dehydration negatively affects your mood, attention, memory and motor coordination.

Also, did you know that the word umbrella comes from the Latin word ‘Umbella’ (diminutive of Umbra meaning shade or shadow) which means sunshade or parasol. Umbrellas can be useful to keep you shaded from the sun’s direct impact and reduce the rate of dehydration.
