If your urine is between light yellow and clear, you are hydrated and healthy. Just keep hydrating. But if it is not, you have to start embarking on the 8 x 8 rule of taking water. That is eight 8-ounce glasses, which is about 1 -2 liters because we are constantly losing water through sweat, urine among other ways. Water is more beneficial to you when you take it in large amounts in one go than small sips throughout the day.
