As the saying goes, ‘the world cannot exist without water’, We cannot survive without water. This is a fact we all know. Our body is made up of 70 percent water. In this context, drinking water is very important for our body.
All experts advise us to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Drinking enough water on a daily basis will make your skin glow, your stomach clear and keep you away from many other problems.
During summers, we all feel dehydrated due to sun exposure and excessive sweating and drink water frequently. Thus, the daily water requirements are easily met. But as soon as the weather changes and monsoon sets in, we become thirsty. We don’t drink enough water because we don’t feel tired enough from the sun.
If we do not drink enough water then it can cause many problems in the body. So let us know in this article that how much water should be consumed during monsoon.
How much water is needed?
Keeping in mind the importance of water in our lives, experts suggest that dehydration can be the root cause of all major problems. The human body is made up of 70 percent fluid. When you take the water out of your cells, you’re left with shriveled dehydrated sluggish cells that don’t function.
Cells need water to perform many functions in the body. The amount of water you need depends on your body. If you are Pitta, you need about 3-3.5 liters to cool yourself, and if you are Kapha, you naturally incorporate the water element in your body.
Especially vada prakriti, these people may forget water throughout the day, so they may feel more dehydrated. Vata people should drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. Water balances pitta dosha, supports kapha and removes dryness of vata. Remember to drink 8 glasses of water every day even in this weather.

Also feeling constipated with low energy levels and wrinkly, dull skin. All these symptoms are due to not drinking enough water. So, you should start drinking more water.
