So how much fluid does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need? A common recommendation is to drink six or eight 8-ounce glasses of water or other fluid every day. But some adults might need more or less, depending on how healthy they are, how much they exercise, and how hot and dry the climate is.
The easiest way to know if you’re drinking enough fluid is to look at the color of your urine. If you’re drinking enough water, your urine will be clear or pale yellow. A darker yellow means you aren’t drinking enough water; drink more!
