If one of your goals is to drink more water, you’re on your way to a healthier body.
Water is an essential nutrient-You know you need water to survive, and you feel better when you drink it regularly.
Believe it or not, your body weight is about 60 percent water, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Your body uses water in all its cells, organs, and tissues to help regulate temperature and maintain other bodily functions. Because your body loses water through breathing, sweating, and digestion, it’s important to rehydrate by drinking fluids and eating foods that contain water.
how to drink water?
*Drink Lukewarm water or water that is at room temperature. Never drink cold water directly from the fridge. “Cold water dampens your digestive fire* said Dr. Radhamony.
Never gulp down water, always drink it sip-by-sip. Don't drink but eat water ( Sip by Sip). I am again highlighting that " SIP WATER SLOWLY, DON'T GUZZLE IT DOWN AT ONCE"
WHEN TO DRINK WATER
1. WHEN YOU WAKE UP DRINK TWO GLASS OF WATER-why? because you were dehydrated during your sleep hours of 6 to 8 hours.
2. TO REGULATE HUNGER, ONE GLASS OF WATER BEFORE A MEAL- always drink (sip-sip) one glass of water half an hour before a meal.
3. ONE GLASS OF WATER AFTER A MEAL- always drink (sip-sip) one glass of water half an hour after a meal.
4. DRINK WATER TO CURE MIDAFTERNOON SLUMP- It’s common to experience the midafternoon dip, a downward slide of energy that happens around 3 p.m. This slump compels many people go get coffee to power through the end of the day, but this beverage choice can cut into your sleep, says Mitri. Even drinking caffeine six hours before bed was found to disrupt sleep compared with a placebo, concludes past research. Reaching for a sugary snack can have similarly unwelcome effects: namely, an energy crash after a spike. Instead of turning to these imperfect solutions, address the root cause, which may be dehydration. A review published in Nutrients in January 2019 notes that in addition to fatigue, dehydration can cause anger, hostility, confusion, and depression. Thus, making water a daily habit can help ensure your energy — and mood — stay steady.
5. FINISH 3/4TH OF YOUR WATER QUOTA BEFORE EVENING. THEN TAKE THE REMAINING 1/4TH OF WATER AT LEAST ONE HOUR BEFORE SLEEP SO AS TO NOT HAVE DISTURBANCE IN SLEEP.
