Do you drink enough water?

Hi myLotters, do you think you drink enough water everyday? As we all know water it vital for our lives and important for our body- it flushes all the bad things out and keeps us hydrated. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but i think the recommended daily intake of water is 6-8 cups. Have a nice day! -virusxtreme24

I have to drink water since I run, if not I get dehydrated way to fast, and I don't feel well while running.

Yes,what you siad is just the truth.The fact is few people can drink 6-8 cups one day in daily life.Usually,i drink 2-3 cups of water in daily life.Another,6-8 cups is a number,it should contain the volume of the cups.Do you think so?

Hi virusxtreme I do drink water every day but i do not know whether i will drink sufficient water for the day or not as i feel less thirsty and do not remember to drink water even when i am not thirsty. But doctors say that we must drink at least 8 cups of water daily

Yup and a lot. It`s very important that I keep myself well hydrated because that`ll keep me healthy and eliminates waste in my body. I can live without food for a few days but I can`t live without water.

I drink more than 8 glasses of water when the climate is warm like summer season. Aside from that i also like to drink cold tea, fruit shakes or any cold drinks which refresh me and keep me cool. When the climate is rainy season, I still drink more than 8 glasses of water. it is almost my everyday rituals. as it is my way to cleanse my colon and to remove any toxic substances that we eat which is includes in some food we eat..Water therapy is also good and acts as body moisturizer to avoid the feeling of dry skin and used to alleviate thirst.

I drink 1 to 2 cups of water with every meal. I won't force myself to drink water just to meet the 6-8 cups needed but I do like drinking water while eating my food.

6-8 glasses would be more like it. more than this, studies say your kidneys will be overworked. mineral water is best.
