You can determine the exact amount you should drink using a simple formula.
Water consumption according to your Physical Activity:
If you’re someone with a high level of physical activity and workout on a regular basis, you should definitely be drinking more than someone with a sedentary lifestyle. If you donâ€™t up your fluid intake to match your exercise and physical activity schedule, it can lead to dehydration as your body tends to lose a lot of water through sweat.
Water consumption according to your diet:
