Tips For Drinking More Water

Staying hydrated is extremely important if you’re an athlete of course, but it’s also important for everyone to get enough water no matter who they are. Depending on size, gender, and activity level, the recommended daily amount can vary from 2 liters to 3 or more liters per day for adults. For a lot of people, drinking water isn’t at the top of their “most exciting things to do” list, so they need a little extra motivation to get their daily dose. We put together a list of ways that can help you hydrate.

Tips For Drinking More Water

1. Bring It With You – To work, to school, while you’re running errands, wherever you go, make it a habit to always have water with you. Get a water bottle or a thermos, fill it up, and make it your daily accessory the same as you would your wallet or your phone.
