Enough water in a day?

The amount of water we consume in a day is vital to maintaining helathy bodies.

Our body is approximatley 60% water and even a slight decrease in this amount can effect us quite a lot.

Below is a summary I found of the functions of water in our body.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/popupnowra...d=display_full

It is recommened that we drink approximately 8 glasses a day....just wondering how many people actually do this.....?

WassalamuAlaykum

Erm....:-[

I do drink when I'm thirsty, which is quite often and after meals. But I don't think I go out of my way to make sure I drink 8 glasses of water a day.

InshAllah I'll try to be more hydro-friendly :)

On a similar note, it's probably best not to go overboard with drinking water:

How many of us say Allahamdulillah before we drink a glass of water and be thankful

May Allah swt give us all the tawfique to do so

I know lol. Only bad thing about it is that I end up having to go to the bathroom a lot, and that gets really annoying, really fast.

I have a water bottle with me at all times, at school, home, in my bag when I'm out. It really helps, because sometimes even if I'm thirsty, I'm too lazy to get some water. So it's readily available alhamdullilah. :)

Actually my mum sent that exact article to me once, and also to my uncle who's a GP. He replied, saying there was no medical evidence for this, and that our bodies warm it up to 37.4 degrees and use up more calories in the process.

She was quite annoyed at his reply lol.

Ramlah: I know what you mean, but take me for example, I just love drinking water not because I am thirsty, but because I am so used to it and it is also healthy. When I drink, I only take 2-3 sips but I drink throughout the day, and very often!

I drink lots of plain water (more than 8 glasses), especially when I am in the office where the air-condition makes my eyes and throat very dry,,,

If it's a very hot day, I could drink more than 8 bottles (1.5 litre each)

I used to hate drinking water a few years ago. Probably had maybe a glass (if that) everyday. Obviously I had other drinks e.g. cola etc

Now I cant live without water! :D:D

Esp if I have dessert. I NEED water after that. Which I heard is good cuz it keeps your glucose levels down. Not sure if its true but *shrug* alhumdullillah water really keeps you fresh and healthy...
