What happens when you are dehydrated?
The average adult loses 2.6 liters of water every day through the body’s regular physiological functioning. The weather conditions you live in and your lifestyle impact the amount of water you lose. Because hydration strongly impacts your mood, health, and state of mind, it is strongly advisable to replenish the water you lose.
If you did not drink any water or liquid for one day, you would notice the following symptoms:
- Diminished visual reaction time
- Faded short-term memory
- Reduced concentration
- Difficulty in completing cognitive tasks
- Increased anxiety and tension
- Fatigue and headaches
