Drinking plenty of water is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Why? For starters, it can help to:
Decrease your appetite
Maintain your energy level
Rid the body of waste products
Make water the first beverage you drink in the morning (that's right, before coffee or tea).
Keep a water "diary" to record your daily intake, or use an app.
Keep a bottle of water with you at all times.
Drink water before, during and after physical activity.
Don't count diet sodas or alcohol as water intake.
Avoid waiting until bedtime to drink your water.
You think you're hungry
You feel tired
You need energy
You crave sweets
If that doesn't help, proceed with a conscious decision to address the issue at hand (i.e. hunger, sweets craving, fatigue).
