Water is life.Everything that has life in this world can't live without it.

For the human body , its made of around 70% water and getting enough water every day is essential for our over all well being. Water transports nutrients and oxygen in every cell tissue and organ in our body. That helps to get rid of bad toxins and so does help to regulate our body temperature.

Most of our water needs met through the water and beverages. And getting thirsty during intense physical activity, hot season and between meals, we splurge for some fluids. 

But beware!!
Instant hydrating beverages like drinking cola, soda, iced tea and powder juices might just get you add more pounds. Plain water would be the best choice. It is a good idea to carry a bottle of water with you everywhere you go, or try to drink a glass of water every two hours, to keep you in the habit of drinking water regularly. You can also get some fluids through the foods you eat from fresh raw fruits and vegetables. For example, broth soups, tomatoes, citrus fruits, celery is 95 percent water, broccoli, 91 percent and watermelon 92 percent.

But how much water should we drink each day? Is 8 by 8 ounce of glasses of water enough in a day to a body weighs more than hundred pounds?

The answer depends on how much you weigh. Here’s a tip to manage your water intake versus weight.

Calculate how much water your body needs each day. Divide your body weight in half, which will give you an estimate of your daily recommended intake of water in ounces. 
For instance, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should aim to drink at least 75 ounces of water. And for each 25 pounds over that, you need an extra glass.

But wait! Don't be enough zealous about your water intake. There’s a mystification about on really how many ounces of water there should be fit in a glass? Is it the size or volume of a glass enoughly contain 8 ounce of water? I think not all,  wattabout the big one, the tumbler and the likes? Anyway if your getting thirst just drink an amount of water that you think it's enough to help you hydrate instantly.
