There is nothing more refreshing in the world, than a big, cold glass of water. I can feel free to tell you that in at least one situation water was more satisfying than coffee, a juice, or any other drink!
Despite of this, many of us do not drink enough water on daily basis. The lack of this natural source damages our body.
So, if you ever find yourself in these 10 situations, improve your situation by drinking a glass of H2O!
If your urine is dark yellow.
That’s a high alert that you don’t drink enough water and that may result in kidney damage. Of course, the color of the urine can be very different, and depend on many factors, but, you will surely notice a difference in the smell and the color.
Your urine output is reduced
Usually, people urinate 6-7 times within a 24-hour period. But, if you urinate less than 6 times a day, be sure that your kidneys are trying hard to retain fluids in order not to dehydrate, and by not drinking water you’re not helping them at all!
Although it may seem like a completely different topic, it actually all comes from dehydration. When your body doesn’t get enough fluids, it will try to get them from wherever it can, including the colon.
Actually, dry skin may be the first sign that you are dehydrated, so instead of paying high prizes for some cosmetic products in order to moisturize your skin, just drink enough amount of water daily, and your skin will glow!
Hunger and weight gain
Our body is very well connected and wired, but unfortunately, it can’t tell the difference between hunger and thirst. So, if you are trying to lose weight, but have an appetite constantly, make sure you are drinking enough water, and wait a little bit after a glass of water, to see if the need for food has gone.
Thirst and dry mouth
There is no need to explain these symptoms, because they say it themselves – you should drink water immediately!
Like we said before, when the body doesn’t get enough water, it will try to retain water from wherever, so that way your brain suffers too. When you don’t drink water, pain receptors are triggered resulting in a headache.
Not drinking enough water causes tiredness, low energy levels and fatigue. So, next time you feel tired, skip the intake of coffee, which is extremely dehydrating, and drink a glass of water instead.
Water is a lubricant for the joints, allowing two bones to slide over each other as the joint moves. You wouldn’t want to damage your joints, right?
Weak immune system
And last, dehydration is increasing the concentration of toxins in your body, and optimal hydration is essential in assisting in the elimination of any illness byproducts and helps the immune system ward off infections.
