how to drink more water

The ‘recommended’ daily consumption of water is somewhere around 60-80 ounces. It’s about 8 glasses every day, which sounds kind of hard to do.

By drinking more water you can lose weight, solve problems and achieve approximately 10 other things! So how can we do it? wikiHow has a few steps to upping your water intake.

Carry water with you everywhere you go in a bottle or other container. Before long, you’ll find yourself reaching for it without a second thought.

Keep a glass or cup of water next to you whenever you’ll be sitting down for a long time, such as when you’re at your desk at work. Drink from it regularly as you’re working.

Try wearing a digital watch that beeps at the beginning of each hour. Use that as a reminder to pour yourself a glass of water. Vow to drink that water before the next beep. If you drink only one small (6 ounce or 180 ml) cup per hour, you’ll have consumed 48 ounces (1.4 L) by the end of an 8-hour workday.

Get a water purification system. Purified water tastes very good and may help make drinking water more appealing to you. Be aware, though, that as you grow accustomed to purified water, you may find that tap water leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Plenty more after the jump.
