No one can argue the fact that water is good for the body. The health benefits associated with drinking plenty of water each day include better digestion, clearer skin, increased metabolism, and increased weight loss, among other things. With all the benefits its seems like there should be no reason to not drink 8 glasses of water a day. However many people fail to even get 2 glasses of water daily.

In order to get in all eight of the recommended glasses of water per day follow these tips for drinking more water:

Make it available. If you keep water conveniently placed near you it will be easier to drink without thinking about it. You will be able to reach for the water each time the thought crosses your mind. If you work in an office you can keep a bottle of water at your desk and drink from it regularly throughout the day. While you are doing your normal tasks at home try to keep a glass or bottle within reaching distance.

Carry water with you everywhere. A lot of people fail to drink enough water because they are busy and on the go. This is no excuse. Get a water bottle you can easily transport while you are out and about. Get a cool water bottle that will make drinking water more fun and more of a talking point among friends.

Add a little flavor. Another reason many people don’t drink enough water is the lack of flavor. If you can’t stand the taste of plain water, or just want something different, try adding lemons or limes to your water. Adding only a splash adds a new flavor to the water and keeps it fresh. You can also freeze little bits of peeled lemons, limes, and oranges to use as ice cubes. Crystal Light is another great alternative, just add a pinch of it to add flavor to water.

Sneak the H2O in. Did you know that getting plenty of water doesn’t mean you have to swig glass after glass? You don’t actually have to drink to get water in your system. You can eat water rich food as another option. For instance, instead of drinking that last glass of water you can eat a good size portion of watermelon. You can also eat tomatoes or other high water content foods. This option is great, but don’t over abuse it. You do need to drink the majority of your water daily.

There are lots of ways to make drinking water easier and more fun. These are just a few of the options to make sure you get 8 glasses of water in each day.
