Three Signs you aren't drinking enough water

The quantity of water you drink daily has a direct impact on the functioning of your body. In fact, the body is composed of between 50 and 76 percent water, depending on body size. Adequate and regular water consumption has numerous health benefits, if not drinking enough water - your body begins a slow degeneration process. 

Here are three early signs that you aren't drinking enough water: 



* You Feel Lethargic: As we just mentioned, when a body is dehydrated it “borrows” water from your blood. A lack of properly hydrated blood leads to a lack of oxygen being brought throughout the body. Of course, a lack of oxygen leads to feeling sleepy and lethargy. 



* You have Digestive Problems:  Without proper hydration, the amount and strength of mucus in the stomach lessens, allowing stomach acid to do some major destruction to your insides. This leads to what we commonly refer to as heartburn and indigestion.





* Your skin becomes dry:  Your skin is your body’s largest organ, so of course it needs to be hydrated. In fact, dry skin is one of the earliest signs of full-on dehydration, which can lead to much larger problems. A lack of water means a lack of sweat, which leads to a body’s inability to wash away excess dirt and oil accumulated throughout the day. If you want to stave off breakouts, your first recourse should be to drink more water.
