Some people feel dry mouth and tongue before going to bed, and fear that they will wake up thirsty in the middle of the night, so they will habitually drink a glass of warm water before going to bed.

Some people like to eat heavy-tasting foods on weekdays, such as spicy, salty, and sweet foods. After eating these foods, people feel thirsty and want to drink water. So some people are used to drinking a cup or two to quench their thirst after eating.

3. Drinking water too fast
When the weather is hot, many people habitually drink water when they enter indoors from outside. Drink a glass of water three times and five times, and then finish drinking. Such a fast drinking speed will cause the water in the body to increase rapidly, which is extremely easy to increase the burden on the heart.

Do not pick up the sip and pour water into your mouth continuously.
4. Drink ice water
The summer is hot, and many people are keen to drink ice water, because drinking ice water makes the whole body feel very cool, which helps to lower body temperature quickly. But it is very bad for your health, because ice water contains cold air. After drinking the stomach, the intestines and stomach will stimulate the cold air, and it is easy to have stomachache, abdominal pain and other discomforts.
Furthermore, women are most afraid of cold air. Drinking ice water frequently will cause a lot of cold air and moisture to accumulate in the body. Once it penetrates into the uterus, it will cause the warm environment of the uterus to become cold and cause the uterine cold. Once the palace cold appears, women are prone to lower abdomen pain when menstruation, that is, dysmenorrhea. If you don’t drive away cold and dampness for a long time, it will easily lead to infertility.
