These are the consequences of drinking too little water. I am such a person who forgets to drink by default. Eating on the other hand ... But well, that is not what this article is about. So I always drink too little. And I'm not talking about alcohol, but about water, tea, limo. You call me and I do not drink it. Not even coffee. Now I am fortunately not the only one with regard to this disease. How many liter of water should you drink.
1 No signal
Sometimes I think: I look like the Sahara herself. I do not seem to need water. At least, where my body functions perfectly when I am feeling hungry (rumbling belly, grumpy from here to and including), my body does not react at all when I should drink water. Thirst? I do not often have that. No, even after exercising. I can not easily drink all day, and then run six kilometers through the Vondelpark. And if you think that after wards I have to hang under the tap like a fast dog? No, I immediately flop on the couch without any pardon to find out after two hours that I still have not drunk anything.
As if my body feels a bit guilty, I still get a headache at the end of the day. But that signal is much too late, because then try to drink away that headache again without drowning.
3 Muscle pain
I always suffer from muscle pain. I once drew on this theory and perhaps it is not correct, but I think that there is a certain causal connection between a. Drinking too little and b. muscle pain. Do you now think: 'yes, I sometimes have muscle pain', then I understand that, but believe me, I do not exaggerate. I do not know how your muscle aches feel, of course, but I feel paralyzed every week for three days if I've camped on Monday. I can practically no longer move after moving house, painting a wall, or carrying very heavy shopping bags. At the moment I'm tapping this piece with muscle pain in my arms because I dragged and decorated a Christmas tree yesterday.
4 Well-intentioned advice
People who do drink regularly always come up with those well-intentioned advice. 'Just put a bottle of water on your desk' and 'take a drink every time you walk along the tap'. That is really nice and kind, but something like that is really difficult for people like me. It is a bit like saying to a sports center: 'Just go to work every day after work'. Lose weight by drinking water. Okay, okay, that might be even more difficult, but take it from me, if I put a bottle of water on my desk, it will stay there all day. I just forget about it. And if I suddenly notice him after two days, then a smell comes out of which the sewer can learn something.
5 Dry skin
The Nivea pots can not be reached (especially in the winter months). My face looks like a sandpaper and my legs and back tickle like the nits. Drinking water makes grow your hair faster. At such moments I think: 'DRINK MORE, DRINK MORE, SHOW YOUR LIFE AND DRINK MORE', then at breakfast only work my oatmeal inside.
6 No unwillingness
It may seem that I am not doing my best to get rid of this ailment, but that is not the case. I have really tried everything. Cold bottles in the refrigerator, water bottles on my desk and putting a water alarm clock, but again: making such a ritual in your life is not that easy. Just ask people who forget to eat (OMG I suffered). You do not need to serve four sandwiches every morning and afternoon.
7 Good intention
Every year with New Year's Eve you are again planning to drink more from 1 January. And usually you succeed the first day with a flag and streamer. After all, drinking water when you are broke is very simple.
