How many of you people like to drink water from Earthen Pots.

Summer season is at the doorsteps if you are living in the northern hemisphere.
Many of us use refrigerators. But I have had the sad experience that the chilled water from a refrigerator soon enough gives a sore throat. Hence I have decided to drink water from an earthen pot.

I love drinking from earthen pots. Water from refrigerator does not quench thirst. I am glad matka is back in our house this summer.

one tip which most of you matka lovers perhaps already are aware of -

Cover the earthen pot with a cotton cloth. And pour water on the cloth. The water inside the pot will become cooler.

By the way I am surprised there aren't any votes for the last option in the poll.

You are harming your body. But you're not alone. During my software engineering days, my water intake was limited to just < 1 ltr over a period of 8-10 hours.

Change your habit before it's late.

3-4 litres of water a day can keep many health problems away.
Not many people must be knowing that drinking more water can help reduce weight. (it is the exact opposite of food, eating more food will make you fat)

The reason is - in case your body is not receiving optimum amount of water , it will start storing whatever water it gets in the body. This is known as water retention. In case your water consumption is normal , the body doesn't need to store water . As we know 70% of our weight is water.
