There is no denying that sometimes a single glass of water can be more nerve-soothing than a cup of coffee. In spite of this, many of us don’t manage to drink enough water every day. Be it our hectic schedules or scarcity of the resource, drinking a limited amount of water can be harmful to our bodies. However, many of us don’t even realize that they are depriving themselves of water. Asking ourselves that ‘Am I drinking enough water?’ will never fetch the right answer.
Therefore, you need to ask yourself the following questions to know if your daily intake of water sufficient?
- Is your skin dry?
Since skin is the largest organ in the body, the effects of drinking less amount of water can be first seen on it. If your skin isn’t hydrated properly, it will turn dry. A lack of water means a lack of sweat, which leads to a body’s inability to wash away excess dirt and oil accumulated throughout the day.
2. Are your eyes dry?
Now it is obvious that more organs than mouth, throat or skin will be affected. Without water, your tear ducts dry up and you will have bloodshot eyes. This could cause more trouble if you wear contacts or wear glasses on a daily basis.
3. Do you have joint pain?
Not many of us know that our cartilage and spinal discs are made of 80% water. It helps to keep the bones grinding from each other. By keeping our body hydrated, your joints are ready to experience any sudden movements.
4. Do you stay sick longer?
Water flushes out harmful toxins from the body. But if you go into a dehydration mode, the body starts sucking up the stored water from other organs or blood. And that will open up Pandora’s box.
5. Are you experiencing digestive problems?
Water lubricates the digestive system. Without enough water, the amount and strength of mucus inside your stomach increases, giving way to stomach acid harm you. This leads to heartburn, indigestion and constipation.
6. Are you ageing prematurely?
The amount of water our bodies retain naturally decreases as we age. Hence, the older we get, the more amount of water we should drink. While premature ageing is more evident on the outside, the damage it does to our insides will ultimately be felt over time.
