How much water do I need a day?
There is actually no set amount of water a person would need in a day. It varies. However as a rule of thumb, if your throat do not feel dry, you go to the washroom every 1-2 hours, and the color of your urine is close to transparent instead dark yellow, then you should have enough of water.
Additionally, drink plenty of water but avoid drinking a lot at once. Drink less amount at once and drink frequent.
Situations when you need higher water consumption: Doing a speech, working under the sun, in a hot environment, in an air-conditioned room, eating sweets or spicy food, beverages, biscuits, chocolate, and = alcohol.
Can I replace water with tea or other beverages? It is best to drink water, because our body cell and tissue fluid is water.
