Water is a common resource but if not used properly it may give adverse results. We take drinking water very casually but its to your kind notice if its not drunk in a right way and at right time it may have bad consequences.
So lets have some knowledge about what are the correct and wrong ways of drinking water:
Sit while drinking
According to Ayurveda and naturopathy, when you drink water while standing, the water quickly moves down the colon without getting the nutrients to be absorbed. This may result in many health issues such as arthritis and kidney damage.
Take slow sips
One should take slow sips instead of chugging it all down, the reasons are- Firstly, our saliva is alkaline in nature and water should be given time to mix with saliva so it stabilises acid in our stomach. Secondly, taking it at one go can make your stomach upset. Thirdly, sipping is also good for your digestive system.
Keep sipping throughout the day
It feels more satisfied when you sip all through the day and will have few yearning. It will also prevent you from over-eating. Sometimes it is a sign of thirst when you feel hungry. So always keep on sipping some water.
Don’t drink too cold water
According to Ayurveda, having cold water with meas can turn out to be toxic for your digestion. It is better to drink water which is at room temperature. Cold water can shock your senses and kill your digestive juices.
Don’t drink just before the meal
If you drink water right before the meal your stomach would be filled by the water. This will prevent your stomach enough space to carry out digestion system. Ayurveda says, your stomach should be filled with 50% food, 25% water, and 25% should be left empty for the digestive process (as well as juices).
Right timings of drinking
Drink two glasses of water as soon as you wake up. Have a glass of water 20-30 minutes before your meal. Drink a glass of water before you take shower.
