Health authorities typically recommend a person drinks 64 ounces (or half a gallon) of water a day, and therefore a person should drink around 15 gallons per month. This can prove to be a challenge, especially when water is often replaced with soda or other beverages. Following a few simple tips, however, can help you greatly increase your water intake.
Tips for drinking more water each day
- Add flavor to your water (fresh lemon or other fruits, non-sugar flavor packs, etc.)
- Set a goal for your water intake, then track the ounces or cups you drink
- Sip on water before every meal
- Make it a habit to drink a glass of water after every bathroom break
While it can take effort to establish a habit of drinking more water, it is well worth it. Studies show that increasing water intake can boost both physical and mental health.
