How to Drink More Water
Water does not get the credit it deserves. When consumed properly, drinking water helps us look, feel and act younger than we are. Over 70 percent of the body is composed of water, and every function in the body depends on water, including the brain and nervous system. Try to drink eight to twelve eight-ounce glasses of water per day as a guideline.
4 Ways to Get the Water You Need:
- Take a drink from a drinking fountain every time you pass one.
- Drink a big glass of water with every meal.
- Carry a large reusable bottle and "challenge" yourself to drink the whole thing before lunch time. Then drink another bottle after dinner.
- If you think water tastes boring, there are many ways to add flavor from a lemon wedge to packaged flavors.
