Many factors like body type, temperature, environment, diet, and others ultimately affect how much water one should drink.

As per Ayurveda, one should drink water when they feel thirsty. It is the easiest way to know that your body requires water to function well. If you are a good observer, you will notice when you are thirsty and fulfill your body’s requirements.
