How to Drink More Water

We all know we should drink cup of water after cup of water after cup of water, but we don't want to. My goal is to drink 64oz of water a day, but that rarely happens. I think I have actually only done it about 4 times and it is usually happens on a day where I need to re-hydrate from the night before.

I just recently bought one of these water bottles and love it!

1. Add your own flavor
Water can get very boring so add some flavor to it. I usually just add some lemons and I am good to go, but you can also add fruit slices into. There are some water bottles that have a little place for your fruit to go into the water bottle so you don't drink the seeds.

2. Track your water intake
This has helped me the most! I have a Fitbit and I love tracking everything. It has really helped me be more conscious of how little of water I was drinking before I started tracking it.

3. Start early
I have read many places to get up and chug a glass of water before you do anything else. This is something I am working on.

4. Be prepared
I have trouble logging my water if I don't know how big the glass is, so I went out and bought a few new water bottles that had marks at every 8oz. I prepare my water bottle before I go to work and try to get through one before lunch (24oz) and then fill up again at work and try to drink another 24oz before I hit the gym. The second bottle is always the hardest because I usually am just drinking plain water, no flavor.

5. Use a straw
Everything is easier to drink through a straw.

6. Set reminders
If you are like me, sometimes I will get busy and forget to drink water and when I finally do it has been about 2 hours since I last drank, so setting an alarm to remind yourself to drink is a good idea.

Do you all have some tips for drinking more water?
