Most people believe that they should drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. However, the recommended water intake depends on individuals. Some people drink less than 8 glasses of water daily while other people need to drink more than 8 glasses of water a day. The possible way to know whether your body is hydrated or not is checking the color of your urine. If the urine is colorless or light yellow, your body is hydrated well.
