Research indicates that moderate dehydration (even less than one or two percent of the water level of the optimal level) can negatively affect mood, and the ability to think. I found a small study of 25 women published in the Journal of Nutrition that dehydration could negatively affect your mood and brain functions. Urine color is a good indicator of the level of water in your body, the lighter the color the better the water level is and vice versa.
