To begin with we will first answer to the questions of how much and when to drink water.
As said earlier we should drink around 2-3 litres of water everyday, which makes it around 8 – 10 glasses of water a day.
We should have 2-3 glass water empty stomach everyday, which helps our enzymes present in saliva to reach into our body, as the saliva of early morning is quite healthy and has lots of secretions which is helpful for our body. We should have a glass water 40 minutes before and after a meal that makes it to 6 glasses in total if we have 3 meals a day, apart from that, if we are involved in physical activities like running, work out, sports etc then too we should drink water in small intervals apart those 8 glasses apart from that you should drink one glass of water before taking shower, which helps in regulating blood pressure, and one glass water before you go to bed, it hel0s in cells renewal process of our body.
We all focus on how to drink water, but the more essential part is how not to drink water that we forget, here we are mentioning some ‘do not’ s essential fir healthy living.
We should not drink water in between the meals, if our food is quite dry like bread, in that case we have around 2-3 sips of water as it does not let the food digest and washes away the required minerals , instead of water we can have, tea, coffee, curd, lassi, chhaach etc. We should never drink water while standing as it leads to greater accumulation of fluids in the joints which causes arthritis. We should always sip the water and not gulp it, because when we sip the water it mixes with our salvia and help stabilise the acid in our stomach. We should never drink water after having fruits which already contain adequate amount of water, like watermelon, melon, oranges etc.
One indication to know whether our body is hydrated or not is through the colour of our urine,
If our urine is yellow in colour then our body is dehydrated and we need to drink more water, but if our urine is clear transparent like water then we know our body is hydrated and we should continue with it.
