We are having a mini heatwave here in the UK, the hottest April on record for 70 years apparently. Although I am enjoying it and would never complain as we get so much rain normally, I had such a headache yesterday and I'm pretty sure it's because I don't drink enough so today I will be more sensible and carry a bottle of water around with me. It made me wonder about people who live in hot climates, they must have to keep well hydrated all the time. How much water do you drink in a day and do you prefer tap or bottled? Image from pixabay

@mlgen1037 More than she did when she was little. They were only allowed to take plain water to school but she didn't like it so used to go all day without a drink. I put flavoured water in her lunch pack but the school tipped it out saying she couldn't have it.

Staying hydrated is important. When I am home, I don't drink a whole lot of water. When I am at work, I drink quite a bit because I am walking and moving quite a bit. Sometimes I feel like I can't drink enough water at work. I will drink bottled at work since they provide it for us and tap water at home.

@sprite1950 I don't drink just for the sake of it, but I am sure there are those that are more health conscious than myself who do. When I am at home I don't drink that much, unless I am busy doing some cleaning and I will get thirsty and I'll drink a glass of water, but if I am just doing my thing online I don't. I love ice cold water though.
Yes, in tropical countries like India we need to have lot of water as we lose lot of water in the form of sweat and we need to replenish them by drinking lot of water. I think on an average an adult individual may be drinking more than 10 glasses of water a day! Thanks @sprite1950!
