I'm trying, again, to drink more water. Today, I complained that I've already urinated like 6 or 7 times. @firstname.lastname@example.org pointed out that that's pretty close to the right amount. I just looked it up, and 6-10 times per day is normal for hydrated humans.
I usually do 3-4.
@jer_ I've read that the color is also a good clue as to whether you're well hydrated or not.
Loving Spouse is... not as good about drinking water as he should be.
I remind him that a good habit is to have a bit of water just after having gone to the loo.
That's actually a great idea... That might be a good "drink more fluids" trigger for me (especially as often as I'm going)
Bodies are black boxes... Show more
@jer_ That's very kind, thank you!
I like looking at my living body as a kind of "black box". Apparently before the advent of modern medicine, there was a whole kind of practice of analysis based on a patient's pee. But even now, it's easy enough (in a well-lit toilet) to spot the color of one's stream.
