One of the easiest ways to tell if you’re dehydrated: take a peek at your pee before you flush. If you’re properly hydrated, your urine will be clear or very light yellow. But when you’re dehydrated, your kidneys try to keep every last drop of water in your body and thus decrease the amount of pee that you produce. And the less water that your body has to flush out, the less water there is in your urine, and the more concentrated (read: darker) it becomes.
