2Why do people do this?

Having water at night is known to be very good for the body. Overnight as the digestion process takes place our body dries up on the inside which is why when we get up in the middle of the night we feel thirsty. Giving our body water before sleeping helps in the digestion process as well as the cleansing process.

3Why this is bad

The biggest reason why this is a very unhealthy thing to do is that most people leave their glass of water uncovered. Leaving this source of water open to the environment is calling for germs and bacteria. Your bedroom is not as clean as you think it is. There are many floating particles that you cannot see.

4Dirt can get into it

As we mentioned before there are many things floating around in your bedroom such as dirt, dead skin cells, dandruff, etc. You can vacuum and clean all you want but they will still be around. Just because you cannot see something that does not mean that it does not exist.

5They fall into your water

This is where the issue arises. Keeping your glass open will cause these floating particles to fall into it and mix with your glass of water. This pollutes the water and makes it unhealthy. You will not fall sick from drinking this type of water but it will surely have some effect in the long run.
