9 Reasons To Drink Water That Have Nothing To Do With Being Thirsty
Exactly how much water people need to drink each day to stay hydrated is a subject of debate. You’ve likely heard that you need at least six to eight glasses a day, but the real figure depends on other factors. How much activity you get, the climate you live in and how much water you get from sources like fruits and vegetables all matters.
