Keeping well hydrated is also good for kidney and bladder functions. Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired. The popular rule is to drink 8 ounces of water 8 times per day. That might seem like a lot of water but spread through out the day it isn't such a monumental task.
