We always wonder why drinking water is so important for us. As you know you are made up of 60-80% of water in your body. And especially in the Summer, It is more important because of the heat factor that we encounter in many countries.

Also, that is why consuming plenty of water is critical to keep your body working. If you don’t have enough,  your body sends you a whole range of signs to let you know that you have to do something about it.

1 .HEADACHE + SLEEP

Y

Our body has to use liquid to function and needs other essential minerals such as potassium and sodium that are in the bloodstream. If you don’t drink enough, your body tries to keep itself in balance by reacting and triggering a headache.

I used to get a headache in the Summer and did not know why, until I discovered that It was because I was not drinking enough water. Ever since I drink a lot of water and add an electrolyte balancer and don’t have a headache anymore.

Also, you get sleepy because the blood flow drops and brings you less amount of oxygen in your system and makes you more fatigued and sleepy.

2 . VESSELS 



Your blood vessels are moving less waste resulting of constipation and not enough water.

3 . DIZZINESS in standing position



The blood volume and pressure drops and makes you dizzy. It is a sign of dehydration when you get up quickly and feel a rush of lightheadedness. 
Be careful If you take blood pressure medication It can make it worse.

4 . URINE  Extra YELLOW

A sign of dehydration which is obvious is the colour of your urine. This means that you don’t have enough water in your body. Your body retains what is necessary, however, If you drink more your urine will be a light yellow and will flush out more effectively the waste from your body.

5 . MUSCLES  Cramping + DRY Mouth



When you feel thirsty It is already too late, you are dehydrated, your mouth is dry and your tongue is thicker. Don’t wait to be thirsty to drink. Grab a glass of water and drink! Muscles cramps is also a sign that people don’t drink enough.

To conclude, drink even If you are not thirty, regularly is the best, have a glass close to you or a bottle so you can see it. Mark a note or an alarm if needed to remind you.
