Most of us don't drink enough water and are chronically dehydrated on a daily basis. And it becomes so normal that we often miss the dehydration signals from our body.
Here are some signs that you are dehydrated:
You Have Dry Skin If you don’t intake enough water for your body, it will do what it needs to do and steal it from your skin!
Your Pee Is Darker Everyone goes - but your body is letting you know you’re dehydrated if your pee is a dark colour.
You Get Headaches Barring any medical issues, frequent headaches have been linked to not drinking enough water.
Crazy Cravings Without enough water, your body will get tired and confused so it will think you need that chocolate when what you really is water!
If you find it a challenge to drink enough water, you can try keeping a reusable water bottle with you everywhere you go so it's close at hand. You can also set a timer to go off throughout the day to remind you to keep drinking (there's an app for that too!).
