Read and learn. Here are the six signs that you’re not drinking enough water.
1. You’re tired
Even if you only take a few sips, water will affect your body and give it more energy. Water also gives you a positive mood boost.
2. Your workouts are hard
Whether you’re playing volleyball or spending hours in the gym. Do you suddenly feel more exhausted than usual while you are working? The chances are high that you need to drink more water today.
3. You have constipation
Better known as: you can not poo. Your body needs water to digest your food and water makes it easier to glide through your organs.
4. You feel bloated
We understand that you just want to drink less if you suffer from bloating, but don’t! If you don’t drink enough, your body compensates for the moisture deficit by holding moisture.
5. Your urine is yellow and stinks a little
The color of your urine is actually the best indicator to check if you’re properly hydrated. The lighter you pee, the better. But do not worry if it suddenly looks super yellow – especially in the morning that is often the case. Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day.
6. Because you’re thirsty
It might sound very logical to drink water when you are thirsty. But did you know that you actually only get thirsty if you are already 1-2% dehydrated? So it’s important to drink enough water and avoid the thirsty feeling.
