Can you Drink too much Water?
It’s rare, but yes. As much as you need water, it is possible to get too much. Having too much water in your system in relation to sodium is called hyponatremia, and it’s not actually from too much water as much as it is from an imbalance between water and electrolytes.
– It is advised to drink around two to four glasses of water after waking up.
– If you work in an air-conditioned environment and follow a sedentary lifestyle, do not drink more than 2 to 2.5 liters of water per day (it will end up accumulating in your kidney and causing edema).
- Try not to allow yourself a diet soda , at least 'til you’ve had two to four glasses of water. Eventually you will find that you won’t crave the soda as much.
- Have a big glass of water at every transitional point of the day: when you first get up, just before leaving the house, when you sit down to work, etc.
- If your eyes, nose, and throat feel dry – drink some water before you use eyedrops, nasal sprays, or suck on a candy or cough drop. Your body has been trying to tell you that you need MORE WATER.
