Are You Getting Enough Fluids?
Pinch the skin on the back of your hand while resting it on a flat surface. If your skin quickly snaps back flat, you've probably been drinking enough. But if it takes a few seconds to return to normal, it's time to drink some water.
Another simple way to check that you are drinking enough fluid is to check the color of your urine the darker it is, the more dehydrated you are.
Water is a vital element. Our environment and body needs a good supply of water in order to survive. Failing to meet your daily fluid intake could result in dehydration and cause some serious health risks. So severe in fact, that too much fluid loss could even become life threatening.
