It’s getting warmer outside, so proper irrigation is very important.
How to drink water?
Drink water by sitting down.
If you are drinking anything while standing it goes straight into the lower esophagus. Esophagus is being closed at the two ends by two rings, those rings are known as sphincters. When you drink water while standing it hits the lower ring i.e. lower sphincter, this constant process causes expansion of lower ring which is not good for the digestion process.
Drink water slowly sip by sip.
Drinking water continuously doesn’t allow the proper amount of oxygen to mix with water and we don’t get adequate amount of oxygen.
Consume water throughout the day, sip by sip after adequate intervals.
If we drink more water at a time, our body is not able to absorb the whole amount of water and most of it will run out through excretion.
Don’t drink very cold water.
Drinking very cold water affects the digestion system. Our body requires internal stomach heat for proper digestion. The cold water affects the stomach heat, which is digesting the food, therefore room temperature water is always advised by the experts. Warm water is always beneficial for our body as it helps in digestion and warm water is less affected by the germs.
Don’t consume water after meal.
It is advised by the dieticians that we should not consume water after our meal for at least two hours. Again the reason is same, the body needs the stomach heat for digestion. If we drink the water immediately after the meal, it decreases the stomach heat and causes indigestion problem. It is advised that you can take a sip or two while having a meal, Because it helps the body acids to easily dissolve the food intake. Always consider your stomach divided into three parts, the half part of the stomach to be filled with the food i.e. our meal, second quarter should be filled with water and the remaining quarter of the stomach should be empty.
Always keep a proper supply of water to your body.
If you are allowing your body to be thirsty then it is not good for health, As we all know that thirst is the natural indication of dehydration process, never allow your body to feel so thirsty.
How much of water you should drink in a day?
Consumption of water by an individual mainly depends on his body weight and the climatic conditions in which he lives. We should deliver 30 ml of water per 1 kg of body weigth. Considering an average individual whose weight is around 60 to 70 kg, should drink about 8 to 10 glasses.
