When Should You Drink More Water?  

In the following kinds of situations, you ought to consume extra water:

While working out  

Drink water before, during, and after exercise to make up for the fluids you lose when you sweat.  

When it's hot  

Because sweating more happens when it's hot, you need more water to stay fresh.  

When Feeling Sick  

Being sick with a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea can make you lose water, so drink more to make up for it.  

When you are pregnant or nursing  

Women who are pregnant or who are nursing should drink more water to meet their higher fluid needs.  

When you drink alcohol  

Since alcohol makes you lose water, drinking water with or after drinking alcohol can help lessen its effects.
