[h=2]12 Warning Signs That You're Not Drinking Enough Water



You’re well aware of the fact that you don’t drink enough water, and no you haven’t done anything about it. Well, maybe these signs that your body desperately needs more hydration will motivate you to change your habits!


1. You get headaches for no reason.
Well, you may not know the reason, but it could be dehydration. The next time you get a headache, drink lots of water, wait 10 minutes and then eat something. Your headache may just disappear.


2. You get hungry even though you’ve just eaten.
Your brain often confuses the signals for hunger and thirst, so when you think you’re hungry, you could actually be thirsty.


3. You often feel tired and lethargic.
When you don’t drink enough water, your body is forced to slow down in order to conserve energy and resources, making you feel tired, sleepy and lethargic.


4. You have trouble concentrating.
Over 70% of the brain is made up of water. When you’re dehydrated, brain function slows down and it becomes difficult for you to focus or concentrate.


5. Your skin tends to get dry.
If your skin is always dry and your lips are always chapped, and it doesn't seem to be due to the weather, it could be because you’re not drinking enough water. If you want soft and smooth skin, make it a point to drink plenty of water.


6. Your pee is very yellow.
This is a little bit gross, but make it a habit to peek into the pot every time you finish peeing. If your urine is clear or pale yellow then you’re fine, but if it’s dark yellow or brown then you need to drink water immediately.


7. Your digestive system is acting up.
Acidity, indigestion and constipation could all be indicators of dehydration. Water keeps your digestive system moving and prevents constipation. It also dilutes stomach acid, so without it you could suffer from acute acidity.


8. Your heart sometimes beats a little faster.
Rapid, fluttery heartbeats are a sign of dehydration.


9. You feel dizzy all of a sudden.
Dizziness can be caused by many different factors, like medication and lack of sleep, but dehydration is another prominent cause.


10. Your breath stinks.
When you’re dehydrated, your body doesn’t produce enough saliva. Saliva protects your teeth from harmful bacteria, but without it the bacteria get a chance to flourish.


11. Your mouth is often dry.
A dry mouth can indicate dehydration, so keep water nearby and sip it whenever you need to. A dry mouth could also be a side effect of medication, so don’t confuse the two.


12. Your muscles and joints hurt.
Water lubricates your muscles and joints, so lack of it can make movement painful!
