Water is one of the basic necessities of our life and nothing can replace it. Without drinking, water one can’t imagine surviving on Earth. If you drink less water then you may suffer from many health problems or other kinds of illnesses (and even weight-related issues). All these problems can be cured just by having adequate water every day.


Many experts say that for ideal health, one can have at least 8 glasses of water every day. But do you know it is also important to know the proper way of drinking water?

If you don’t know the right way of having a glass of water then this article is for you…
NEVER drink water while standing:

Many of us are having a habit of drinking water standing up. Since we never pay attention to this but ignoring it can lead to serious health issues. Because when we drink water while standing, we don’t get the required nutrition for our body.


As per medical experts, if we don’t consume water in the right manner then we might have some health-related problems.

According to Ayurveda, our bodies get maximum benefits when we sit down and exercise our body. This is the reason why our elders always told us to sit down while eating and drinking.

As we all know our body is made up of 70% water but it loses so much of it every day, therefore it is crucial to drink adequate water but in the RIGHT WAY. And of course, you won’t get any benefit when you stand up and drink.

Know why you should not drink water standing up:

When we drink water while standing, it goes through directly into our body and does not really reach the organs where it should go and do the job. Hence, the impurities which are supposed to go out of the body get deposited in the kidneys and the bladder.

Therefore, it is recommended to drink water while sitting. Our bodies are designed in a way that gets the maximum health benefits when we sit down and keep back erect.

When you drink your water from a bottle or a glass, always remember to drink when sitting because the nutrients reach the brain and boost its activity. It improves your digestion and also ensures that you don’t feel bloated after having water.

So, follow a new routine and say goodbye to toxins and impurities in your body…
