Water acts like fuel in our body, just the way a certain amount of oil is necessary for cooking, in the same way, a certain amount of water in our body is necessary to keep ourselves going. In this modern world, people forget to stay hydrated, in the everyday chaos it gets tough for people to consume the right amount of water every day which then leads to a number of problems in the body.

Lack of hydration damages every single part of our body

  • The skin gets untimely dry and rough
  • Major hair loss, frizzy hair
  • Migraine
  • Extreme mouth dryness
  • Chapped lips

It is very important to stay hydrated, though the Thirst for water changes according to the season.

During summer, one might crave more water than in the winter season. This happens because during extreme summer temperatures the hydration level in our body decreases way too harshly; try stepping out in the sun when the heat temperature is at its peak and then come back home; you will see yourself getting way too thirsty than you were before.

Similarly, try stepping out when the winter is way too chilly and cold; you will forget to drink water. (Schols, J.M.G.A., De Groot, C.P.G.M., Van Der Cammen, T.J.M. and Rikkert, M.O., 2009)

Why Do People Forget To Stay Hydrated?

As mentioned before, people are way too busy in this modern era of times. As they are stuck up in their entire routine it gets difficult for them to remember the smallest of things such as drinking water.

But this should not be forgotten, our body literally works on hydrogen and if a certain amount of hydrogen is not given to the body our body starts to act up.

  • it is essential to keep a daily reminder
  • You can also assign someone who can remind you from time to time; it can be your friend who’s always with you or it can be your Dee partner at the office
  • Always keep your water bottle in front of you and not somewhere where it cannot be seen.

How Much Water Is Sufficient To Stay Hydrated?

A certain level of  water is essential for the efficient working of our body.

Every day a person should consume 10-11 cups of water without fail.

Biologically, hydration levels work differently for men and women.

  • for men;  11.5 cups of water is necessary which equals to 3.5 liters of water everyday.
  • For women- 15.5 cups of water is necessary which equals to 5.5 liters of water everyday.

Other Ways To Consume Hydrogen

Many fruits and vegetables contain a high amount of water. Citric fruits contain a certain amount of hydrogen which is essential for the body; ranging from orange to watermelon all the fruits can be consumed if a person is suffering from dehydration.

Water Is Very Important Fuel For The Body

Water not only regulates your c but also energizes your entire body, after a tiresome day every person only wants one thing and that’s water. Waterworks as an energy provider for the body which is why it is called the fuel of the body.

It is important to consume proper quantities of water every day and not waste it as it is a very essential source to rejuvenate our body from time to time. (Quan, P., Zhou, B., Sobiesiak, A. and Liu, Z., 2005)
