Six Tips for Drinking More Water

  1. Use a marked water bottle
    Whether you purchase a special bottle or simply use a permanent marker on an existing bottle – keeping track of your progress will help keep you on track.
  2. Drink a glass of water after every bathroom break.
    Use bathroom breaks as a reminder to keep on track!
  3. Flavor your water! Use cucumbers, lemons or strawberries!
    Mix it up and try a few new flavors.
  4. Dilute sugary drinks with water and ice.
    If you’re craving a sugary drink – or trying to break a habit – gradually start diluting your drink with ice or water.
  5. Choose sparkling or mineral water.
    Like the carbonation but not the calories? Choose a mineral or sparkling water instead!
  6. Anytime you drain your glass or bottle, fill it back up!
    Keeping a full bottle of water on hand will increase the likelihood that you’ll reach your goal.
