12 Easy Ways to Drink More Water Every Day

At best, trying to drink more water every day can feel like a chore. At worst, it can be downright painful. But it doesn't have to be so hard if you learn a few easy tricks, make up some fun rules, and maybe buy a few things. These are the best things we know to help you drink more water every day.


1. Make Your Water Taste Better

Your carafe can be spiced up with grapefruit, strawberries, lemon, cucumber, ginger, celery, and basil, mint, and lavender. 27 Hydrating Fruit-Infused Waters Delicious add-ins are available this season. Each cup tastes better after steeping. Try cucumber mint or basil lemon.

2. Drink A Glass Following Toilet Breaks

Drink kitchen water. Another way to incorporate the practice into your day. Fill your bottle or glass at the water cooler or tap once you're up. The more water you drink, the more you pee, which makes you drink more. A nice self-fulfilling prophecy.

3. Sip Before Every Meal

Sip when making meals at home. When ordering drinks at a restaurant, request water. While lunch heats or toast pops, drink water. Even when snacking, drink water. This simple rule can help you drink more water. Once you've established these easy "rules," you'll do it almost automatically.

4. Track Your Cups Using An App

App-based activities are easier for me to get into and excited about. A free software like Daily Water Free or Daily Water makes tracking glasses entertaining. Download reminders and alarms for your phone. I vote for anything with a beautiful interface and a well-designed programme!

5. Get An Advanced Water Bottle

I like sophisticated devices, excuses to buy them, and smart apps. Why not track with the futuristic DrinKup ($69) and app? This smart water bottle tracks and advises daily water intake. A DrinKup keeps beverages cold for 24 hours and heated for 12. It looks good and functions properly. Elegant four-color.

6. Add water and ice to sugary drinks

Add ice or water to sweet drinks like juice, lemonade, and iced tea. It'll satisfy your sweet tooth and provide extra water. If you don't want a less sweet drink, this tip may not be for you. Sometimes I order a sweet drink and it's too sweet. I don't mind adding ice or water then.

7. Have A Gallon Handy

The same idea applies. Being near the source makes water refills easy to remember. Keep a gallon or large carafe at your workplace, bed, and kitchen counter to remember to drink. You'll remember to fill and drink that water jug if you see it often.

8. Invest in a filter

Filtered water may be necessary based on location and resources. Water quality may not require filtration, yet filtered water tastes better than tap or fountain water. When I spend money, effort, or both in a system, I utilise it more. Consider kitchen sink and portable bottle filters.

9. Replace Soda With Sparkling Or Mineral Water

Seltzer won't replace every wonderfully sweet soda, but if you're like me, you go to a vending machine, corner store, or fridge when you're bored, want a break from work, or want to drink something, not since you want Sprite. Anything bubbly will do—use fizzy water. Lime juice enhances the mocktail.

10. Eat Water-rich Foods

Sneakily drink extra water daily by eating it. Shop for water-rich produce. Top picks: cucumber (96% water), zucchini (95%), watermelon (92%) and grapefruit (91%). Start with Cucumber Salad, Grilled Salmon Salad With Grapefruit, and Zucchini Pasta With White Beans and Grilled Chicken.

11. Use a marked water bottle

Progress drives me to keep going no matter what. Fun, visible progress tracking is the best method to motivate me. If my progress marker is as intriguing as the progress, bonus points. OZ or HOUR bottles could help you meet your daily water goal.

12. Snack on salty stuff

Definitely graze more than nibble. I snack constantly. You must wrestle me for my water bottle as I munch salty almonds or pretzels. Everyone has distinct sodium and flavour preferences. Salty snacks make you want water. The best water-pounding incentives are salted almonds and beef jerky.
