If the colour is on darker side then you need to drink a bit more water and if it is normal, then you don’t need to drink, it’s simple! But then also if you are feeling afraid about not drinking enough water then you can drink a glass of water extra, more than your thirst You don’t need to drink litres of water in order to make sure that you are drinking enough water in one day.
