Is drinking water the secret to feeling happy? Probably not, but this new survey says that it may be *indicative of a person’s happiness.

A new *survey of 2,000 Americans that asked how much water they *consumed on average, found that they were three times more likely to feel “very happy” if they reported drinking enough water.

The results showed that 67% of *respondents who drank “more than enough” water evaluated themselves as “very happy,” whereas only 21% of those who said they “didn’t drink enough water” said they’re “very happy.”

The *statistics emerged in a poll conducted by OnePoll. It also revealed that the average American drinks almost five glasses of water per day, with the average respondent believing the “recommended amount” of water per day is only five eight-ounce glasses (most experts believe you should drink eight).

Once again, those who drank more glasses of water per day were more likely to evaluate themselves as “very happy.”

The “10+ glasses a day drinkers” were statistically the most likely to be “very happy,” with 80% saying so, and 18% opting for “somewhat happy.”

But interestingly, the results showed a steady *increase in “very happy” respondents as the number of glasses of water consumed went up.

For example, of those who drank two glasses a day, only 34% were able to call themselves “very happy,” and of those who drank four glasses, 45% were “very happy.”

And the most likely group to rate themselves as “not very happy”? Those who drank zero glasses of water per day, with 24% responding this way.

Not only that, but those who drank 10+ glasses per day were also most likely to rate themselves as “very energetic” (82%), and also most likely to rate themselves as “very successful” (67%)

“With the *demands of everyday life, living a healthy lifestyle can sometimes be a challenge, said CEO Anat Levi of O.Vine. “Staying *hydrated is a big part of that.”

But staying *properly hydrated can be a challenge for some, it turns out. According to the stats, three in four Americans say they are too busy to drink the proper amount of water.

But even though they may lack the time, they are not in denial about its benefits.
For example, 73% of those surveyed say they are *noticeably happier when they feel they’ve drunk “enough” water, and over half (54%) feel less *productive at work if not properly hydrated.

喝水是快樂的秘訣嗎?或許不是,但這個新的調查指出喝水可能是人們快樂的指標。

一個2000位美國人參與的新問卷詢問他們每日的攝取水量,發現如果他們有喝足夠的水,他們可能有多三倍的機會感到更快樂。

結果顯示67%的”喝足水”的問卷回覆者,認為它們自己”非常快樂”,然而”沒喝足水”的問卷回覆者只有21%說自己”非常快樂”。

這份統計出現於OnePoll執行的民意測驗。其揭示美國人每天平均喝約5杯水,其中大多數的問卷回覆者認為”每日建議量”僅5杯8盎司的水。(大多數的專家認為應該為8杯)

再者每天喝數杯水的人更有可能認為自己”非常快樂”。

一天喝超過10杯水的人統計上最有可能感到”非常快樂”,其中80%回答同意,而18%的人選”稍微快樂”。

但有趣的是,這結果顯示”非常快樂”的問卷回覆者數量,隨著水量上升攝取量穩定增加。

例如每天只喝兩杯水的人,只有34%稱自己”非常開心”,而喝4杯水的人中有45%”非常開心”。

最可能列自己為”非常不開心”的族群?就是每天都不喝水的人,其中有24%這樣回覆。

不僅如此,那些每天喝10杯以上水的人為最有可能將自己列為”非常有活力”(82%)的人,也是最有可能評自己為”非常成功”(67%)的人。

O.Vine的總裁Anat Levi 說“背負著每天生活的要求(責任),過著健康生活模式有時是個挑戰,保持充水狀態是其中很大一部分”。

但結果發現保持適當補水可能對一些人是個挑戰。根據這個挑戰,四個美國人中就有三個說他們太忙以至於無法喝適當的水量。

但即使他們可能缺少時間喝水,他們並沒否認喝水的好處。
例如,73%的受調查者說他們明顯地感到更快樂如果他們覺得他們有喝”足夠”的水,超過一半(54%)覺得工作效率較低如果他們沒有適當補水。
