The more water you drink, the more energy you have and the better you feel, even increasing productivity at work. There are apps for your smart phone and stickers for your water bottle that help you drink more water and gauge how hydrated you are. However, no matter how much we try, it can be hard to know how much water is the right amount to drink.

#1: Start every day with a glass of water when you wake up.
#2: Replace at least one soft drink or coffee with water or tea each day.

#4: Have an apple! Eating fruits and veggies that have a high water content will keep you hydrated and full at the same time.
#5: Spice it up! Adding herbs like mint and fresh fruit slices like oranges or lemons will infuse your water with flavor. Try new add-ins to see which you enjoy the most!
