I am struggling to drink 8 glasses of water a day. I have a good morning routine of hot water and lemon when I first get up, but that's about it. I will pull out a refillable water bottle, do some measurements to figure out how many refills I need to reach 8 glasses in a day. I will try and keep the water bottle by my side. Where I go, it goes.

I strive for a minimum of 10 cups a day and on the days where I am out power walking/running I strive for 12-14 cups per day.
I use a two cup container for each helping.

Yes, did like it much, but now I take it cold or tap. Hot tea, hot coffee, sips or large glasses of water. I like filtered from refrigerator or bottled. Water has a quenching effect than a cold soda .

Staying strong & Motivated

Using my 30 ounce insulated glass/mug really helps. Water, herbal ice tea, cold brew decaf coffee are three of my favorites. emoticon

I have a bicycle water bottle that holds 3 cups of water. It sits on my computer desk and I drink it 3 or 4 times a day. It is so hot all the time (Philippines) that water is never a problem for me. (plus a liter of sugar free Tang)

Back in the US I worked aircon in Texas, so I carried a 2 liter canteen to work.

No ice, no flavorings. emoticon

I get bottles ready the night before. I freeze some partially filled ones to drink cold water. I have my mug ready for warm or room temp.
Sometimes I drink really diluted green tea or add a splash of juice or essential oils to my mug. I keep it handy & sip all day. If I go for a while without sipping then I chug some. I especially drink some when I wake up.

My favorite insulated mug with a straw and ice. I refill it several times a day. Sometimes I add mio drops, sometimes cold brew tea, sometimes lemon, whatever I feel like at the time.

I add lemons, limes, cucumbers, mint or oranges to mine. I am more likely to drink it if it is cold so I always add ice. I also switch out water containers to keep me interested

I drink at least 4 glasses before I head into work. Drink 2-4 glasses at work and the rest while I make dinner. If I workout outside I have a water bottle that holds 2 1/2 cups of water that I drink. I may not finish but I get through at least half.

48 ounces is about the most I can do - but if I add in my daily herbal tea consumption I probably get more!

I have kidney problems so I have to drink water daily with real apple cider vinegar with "mother" in it, I add lemon to it & make a 8 cup jug to drink daily. If I have regular water it goes through my body in 5 minutes, which is no good for nutrition & other things that way. It also helps regulate my salt, with water not staying in my body my sodium is too low, all from my kidney disease, even though it is mild I have similar side effects that people at later stages of kidney disease have. I am at stage 2, final stage is stage 5.

I guess I am lucky in that I enjoy water. I have fun cups and water bottles. I was fortunate to telecommute for several months and I have several 64 ounce jugs filled t keep my cups filled.

i also drink a gallon a day, but it's all i drink which may make it easier for me to get my intake in..
Some days I get a little less in, if I'm not as active, but..
most days it's a gallon.
