While sleeping, the body does not get water intake for approximately 7-8 hours. When you wake up, you will generally feel thirsty, which is an indication your body is dehydrated. Therefore, we need to replenish the body's water supply by drinking one to two glasses of water. In addition, drinking water in the morning also accelerates metabolism and helps flush out toxins in the body.

Another one of the best times to drink water is right before taking a bath. The freshness of water when combined with the warmth of water you get when you take a shower will dilute the sodium content in the body, thereby lowering blood pressure.
3. Before A Meal (Morning, Afternoon, Evening)

Watch how much you take, because if you consume too much water, it can interfere with the digestive process because it can interfere with the process of dissolving food and the enzymes needed in the stomach to digest food.
4. When You Feel Tired
You know that 60% of the human body is made up of water. This means that most of our body's performance depends on water, including important parts such as the brain and other important organs.
