How Much Water Do You Need To Drink If You’re In Your 20s? – The List

Being in your 20s means you’re likely very busy trying to balance work or school, your personal life, hobbies, and more. Sometimes, it may feel like you’re just running around doing one thing after another, eventually tiring yourself out. When this happens, you’re probably also forgetting to drink water throughout the day, or you may rely on other drinks such as sodas or teas to help keep you satisfied. According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health, it was found that 54.5% of teenagers and children in the U.S. are not properly hydrated. This certainly carries into adulthood, as many experts note that fatigue and low energy can be attributed to a lack of proper hydration and not knowing how to stay hydrated (via Better by Today).

A study published in Nutrition Reviews says that the recommended daily intake of water for people aged 19 through 30 years old varies depending on sex. Specifically, women are recommended to drink 11.4 cups (2.7 liters) of water a day, while men are recommended to drink 12.7 cups (3.7 liters). However, there are other things that can impact how much water you’re supposed to be drinking. Things like the environment you’re in, your diet, your weight, and other factors can potentially change how much water you need. If you have a hard time staying on track, there are ways to keep yourself accountable when it comes to getting proper hydration every day.
