One thing that many people fail to pay attention to is the amount of water they drink. A study conducted within the last year found that as many as half of all children and adolescents in the U.S. are not getting enough water. Using the word “dehydrated” may sound kind of serious but believe it or not, every time you start feeling thirsty, you are already dehydrated. Not drinking enough water may not sound like a big deal, but letting dehydration get out of control can result in serious consequences and even land you in the hospital! While the amount of water each one of us requires every day will vary a bit, here are some important sings to be aware of that may be your body’s way of telling you that you need to drink more.

Most people can avoid this by keeping water close by and staying hydrated throughout the entire day.
