Staying hydrated is one of the most vital things to stay healthy, energetic and fit. Water can help you stay away from countless health problems and aids the body’s detoxification process.

But, are you drinking enough water? The below mentioned 5 signs indicate that you are not drinking enough water and if you are experiencing any of these, it's time to increase your water intake.

1. You Feel Hungry All The Time

When we don’t drink enough water, our body considers it as a sign of dehydration and starts working in the emergency mode. The liver starts holding its glycogen reserves and our body starts craving for more food even when you had it sometime back only.

2. Your Urine is Dark Yellow

This is one of the most common and visible signs of dehydration. As the fluid levels decrease in the body, all the waste from the kidneys is carried by a lesser amount of urine and the increased concentration of toxins darkens the color of urine.

3. You have Bad Breath

The saliva in our mouth keeps a check on the growth of bad bacteria which is responsible for causing bad breath. As the water intake decreases, the amount of saliva in the mouth also decreases and thus we complain bad breath.

4. Hammering Head

As we drink less water, the amount of blood circulating in the body also decreases. Reduced blood means that less oxygen will reach our brain, due to this you feel dizzy.

5. You Feel Exhausted

When you consume less water, our body fulfills its requirement by taking water from blood due to which heart is required to work harder than normal. As the heart starts over working, you start feeling exhausted.
