12 important signs that we don’t drink enough water.
There is not as much refreshing in this world as a tall, icy glass of water. I don’t think there’s anyone alive who can deny that a simple glass of water can be more useful than a cup of coffee or a can of soda. Despite that, too many of us do not drink enough water every day. By depriving ourselves of the world’s most natural resource, we are constantly harming our bodies. If you recognize any of the following signs in yourself, we recommend that you drink a glass of H2O immediately.
1. Your mouth is dry.
It seems pretty obvious, but the consequences may not be the same. Of course, whenever you feel this unpleasant, unpleasant feeling in your mouth, you are drawn to some kind of fluid. But sweet drinks are just a temporary solution to a more serious problem. Drinking water lubricates the mucous membranes of your mouth and throat that will continue to keep your mouth moist for a long time after your first sip.
2. Your skin is dry.
Your skin is the biggest organ in your body, so of course, it must remain moisturized. Dry skin is one of the earliest signs of complete dehydration, which can lead to much more serious problems. Lack of water means a lack of sweat, which leads to the body not being able to wash away excess dirt and oil accumulated during the day. If you want to prevent breakthroughs, you should drink more water first.
3. You’re too thirsty to drink.
We’ve already passed through a dry mouth, but the thirst goes beyond the desert tongue. Anyone who has ever had a hangover can tell you that after waking up your body just can’t get enough water. Alcohol dehydrates your whole body, and drinking water sends “YES!” signals to your brain until your fluid level returns to its original level. Listen to what your body tells you; it knows what it’s talking about!
4. Your eyes are dry.
By now it should be clear that drinking water does not only affect your mouth and throat. Lack of water leads to dry blood poured eyes (again, think of the last hangover). Without water in your body, your tear ducts will dry out. If you think, “What if I can’t cry?” Understand that this can cause much more damage to your eyes, especially if you wear contacts daily.
5. You’re experiencing joint pain…
Our cartilage and vertebral discs are 80% water. Our bones mustn’t come into contact with each other at every step we take. By keeping your body hydrated, you ensure that your joints can withstand the shock of sudden movements such as running, jumping, or an awkward fall.
6. Your muscle mass is shrinking.
Your muscles also consist mainly of water. Less water in your body means less muscle mass. Drinking water before, during, and after your workout not only provides you with hydration and comfort, it also delivers water to the right places in your body and reduces the possibility of inflammation and pain associated with exercise and weightlifting.
7. You will last longer
Drinking water allows your body to constantly remove toxins. Your organs work to filter our specific waste, such as the machine, but if you do not fill the machine with water, it cannot work properly. What happens in the end in the dehydrated body is that your organs start pulling water out of areas such as your blood, causing several new problems.
8. You feel tired and sluggish.
As we just mentioned, when the body is dehydrated, it will “borrow” water from your blood. Lack of properly moistened blood leads to a lack of oxygen in your body. Of course, lack of oxygen leads to drowsiness and complete fatigue. Lack of stamina means that you will begin to experience that collapse at 2 pm early in the day and earlier in the day (and remember that coffee will not help in the long term).
9. You’re experiencing the agony of hunger.
When you’re dehydrated, your body may start thinking it needs some food. This happens during the day and overnight when you wake up eager for a midnight snack. However, eating food creates more work for your body, while drinking water purifies your organs as well and supplies it with the fuel it needs to go through other processes that your body goes through.
10. You have digestive problems
Earlier we talked about mucus in the mouth and throat, and how hydration maintenance allows the membrane to function properly. This also applies to the entire digestive system. Without proper hydration, the amount and strength of mucus in the stomach are reduced, allowing gastric acid to cause significant damage to your insides. This leads to what we usually call heartburn and upset stomach.
