However, there is a correct way of drinking water and more often than ever, people get it wrong. Addressing the healthy benefits of drinking water and the correct way of doing it, Anshuka Parwani wrote, “Keeping yourself hydrated is of utmost importance.

“Having water while standing can cause indigestion and heartburn. It can also trigger arthritis and cause harm to the lungs as the speed at which the water travels through the system increases,” she added. Anshuka further shared a video, where she can be seen demonstrating the correct way of drinking water by sitting down. She can also be seen drinking water from a copper vessel. “The correct way to drink water, is to sit down with your back straight. This way, the water reaches the brain and helps improve brain activity. It also aids in digestion and tackles bloating,” she added.
Anshuka further wrote that the healthy way of drinking water is by storing it in copper vessels. “The cooling properties of copper helps to detoxify the body, boost the immune system and helps with Anaemia. Remember, sipping water is the way to go instead of chugging a large amount at once,” Anshuka wrapped her post.
