    Was just wondering if there are any benefits of drinking more water than the recommended daily volume. Obviously not dangerous amounts but you know what I mean!

    Cheers

    If there were significant benefits, then surely the recommended amount would just be raised?

    You should only really drink when you feel thirst. Ignore this whole recommended amount business.

    in normal temperate conditions and without strenuous physical work the body requires 2 -3 litres of water a day from all sources , including the water 'hidden' in foods ... this also includes the water content of all drinks ( part from excessive alcohol intake) ... so if you manage to drink 2 litres of all drinks a day plus the water in your food you'll probably be fine ... warmer conditiosn and greater physical work will increase the demand for water.

    I disagree, many people won't notice until they're REALLY thirsty, or will forget etc.

    You should know your teacher position job description, job qualifications then, teacher technical interview questions…, you can ref some questions as below:

    Tell me about yourself?
    What kind of salary are you looking for Teacher?
    What are your career goals for teacher?
    How many years of experience do you have for Teacher position?
    How do you plan when starting a new study unit or topic with your class?
    Tell me how you develop your daily lesson plan and what do you include?
    Describe your teaching style?
    Would you be interested in participating in after- school activities?
    How have you used, or how will you use technology in the classroom?
    What type of classroom management structure would you implement if you were hired?

    That's their fault. You shouldn't have to pour water down your throat whenever you don't feel you have to. We are built with a thirst reponse to tell us when to drink, just like when you are hungry, you eat. You don't eat when you aren't. At least, you shouldn't.

    this

    there is no evolutionary advantage to drinking more water, as water cannot be stored for more than a few days, unlike food which can be stored for longer, and that's why we can (naturally) "overeat"

    If you drink too much you can also start to flush all the the nutrients from your foods through your system and they won't have a chance to be absorbed. In some cases it can also cause kidney problems (in the very long term) due to them having to work very hard to keep filtering all the fluids in the body. Drink when you're thirsty, I tend to also drink a lot when I feel tired or have a headache. So often keeping yourself hydrated cures very common ailments.

    Additionally, water intoxication could occur if vast amounts of water are consumed within a small space of time.
