How Drinking Water Affects A Person's Night Sleep

Water is essential for the body because it is mainly composed of fluids, and there are various ways to get it besides drinking regular water. However, drinking water can also affect a person's sleep cycle, and we will explore some of those effects.

In this article, based on a publication from Everyday Health, we will examine how drinking water affects a person's sleep cycle. Read on to learn something new and interesting.

How Does Drinking Water Affect Sleep Cycle?

Typically, the kidneys stop working for about 6 to 8 hours during sleep to allow for uninterrupted rest. This is important because waking up several times during the night to urinate can lead to sleep deprivation and harm your health.

However, drinking water before bed can disrupt this process. It doesn't mean that drinking a glass or two of water will harm your body or affect your sleep, but drinking water right before bed can cause you to wake up several times during the night to urinate. According to healthline Drinking water before bedtime can disrupt your normal sleep cycle. But what if you're thirsty?

Experts suggest drinking water a few hours, usually two hours, before bedtime. This allows the kidneys to eliminate excess water from the body before you fall asleep, ensuring you have a restful night's sleep.
