What If You Don't Drink 8 Glasses Per Day?

Q: I find it difficult to drink eight glasses of water per day; I can barely drink two. Are there any negative consequences for that?

A: Many of us find it hard to reach the golden target of eight glasses of water a day. Failing to do so leads to dehydration which can result in dry mouth, dry skin, fatigue, impaired kidney function, muscle cramps, poor concentration, dizziness, stomach ulcers, digestive problems, and weakness. On the long run, your skin can become pale, your lips and fingertips bluish, and your breathing can become shallow, eventually leading to seizures and coma.


I am not sure why you find it hard to drink water, but if it is that you forget to drink water, then the following tips can prove handy:


  • Keep a glass of water next to your bed so that it becomes the first thing you notice in the morning.
  • Keep a bottle of water by your desk at work.
  • Set the alarm in your mobile phone to remind you every hour to drink a glass of water. If you are busy when the alarm rings, hit the snooze button.


If the reason for not drinking water is because you don’t like it, then the following tips can help:


  • Flavor water with a slice of lemon.
  • Drink as much water as you can and resort to other fluids such as tea, milk, fruit juice, vegetable juice, or yogurt.
  • Consume foods that are high in water such as cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, strawberries, watermelon, and cantaloupe.

Yellow #teeth are stronger, the natural color of our teeth is a light yellow color. Whitening your teeth can permanently weaken them
