We all know how important it is to stay hydrated for a normal functioning of the body. The recommended amount of water per day is 9-11 cups per day, so you can take a guess that water is something that is constantly needed by our body.

According to US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines drinking water prevents dehydration, a condition that can cause unclear thinking, mood swings, overheating of the body, constipation and kidney stones. Since water has no calories, it can also help in managing your body weight and reducing your calorie intake when replaced with unhealthy drinks like sweet tea or regular soda.

Water helps your body as it:
* Maintains the body temperature.
* Provides cushioning for the joints.
* Protect your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues.
* Detoxifies the body through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements.

Radhi Devlukia Shetty, a well-known Ayurvedic expert, recently shared an Instagram reel with tips on how to drink water the right way. “Ayurveda really taught me how much of a difference the way you drink your water can have on your overall health. So, here’s the 101 crash course on how to do it right,” she wrote in her caption.
