yes i do. our body is composed of approximately 70% water.. so i think it is wise to nurture it well with water.. i have learned that poor intake of water causes low level of energy throughout the day.. so if you want to feel more active,,you should drink more water..

i dont give attention to the amount of water i drink before. but when i learned about the advantages of drinking lots of water and disadvantages of drinking less water, i became conscious on the amount of water i drink everyday. i make sure that i drink at least 8 glasses a day.

yes i try to do that from my child hood onwards but its very hard to for me to repeat.anyway summer had arrived and will agan try this. once i was reading the news paper that i found this news,a man rather a scientist after making so many assumptions said that drinking a lot of water is good but if the amount increases much then it would be dangerous for a person coz his brain dries up. so people drink water but not so excess that you get admitted in the hospital.

I do not drink anywhere near 8 glasses of water per day. I am going to make a conscious effort to drink more. I could use a bit more energy throughout my days.

No, I do not drink 8 glasses a day. I love water and would not have a problem doing just that. But honestly I just don't think about it. Most times I don't drink much at all, and that's not good b/c I swell a lot and I think I will try this b/c you mentioned it giving you more energy. My skin is also very dry, maybe this will help remedy that as well. Great topic A++.

I tried but I have always failed. Most of the time I would forget that I have to drink that much. Sometimes, I can go about doing my work without drinking for many hours. I know that is not healthy but I hope there is a way to rectify this.

I even drink more than 8 glasses, maybe because of the heat I always feel dehydrated.

i make it a point to drink as more water as i can to make my body cleansed and more lively and moisturized. whenever i am on a trip, i am always thirsty most often than hungry. like you said our body is composed of 70% water so let's just drink and drink and drink lots of water for a healthy life! alright!

I always do the best to remind myself to drink as much water as possible. I can say that you're right about what water can do for your body. Even though our bodies are mostly made up of water it's always good to refill your body with the necessity it thrives on.

I think i drink a little more than 8 glasses of water. I have realized water is very good for my skin health. It keeps it fresh, glowing and well moisturized. My skin feels really dry and itchy on days i dont have enuff water. Also it is good for food digstion and other body functions.

No . I know some research said that one day 8 glasses of water is good for your health. But as I know that , one day a cup of tea can meet your requirement.
