11 Ways to Drink More Water

The key: make the habit come naturally.
1. HIDE IT


Hide drinking water in your regular routine. Associate drinking water with everyday events like waking up or your regular meals. Make your dinner plate feel off without a bottle of water next to it.

2. TRICK YOURSELF


Place a glass of water next to your toothbrush or on your nightstand as a reminder to drink water each morning when you wake up. Tip: Place another glass over the top to keep out dust.

3. INFUSE YOUR WATER


Drop in chopped fruits like strawberries and lemons, sliced veggies like cucumber and ginger, and herbs like mint and lavender.

4. DILUTE


If sugary drinks are a regular part of your day, add water and ice to preserve the flavor and sweetness while upping your daily dose of water.

5. PIT STOP


Every time you pass the kitchen or water cooler, fill up your bottle. Link physical locations that you pass by regularly with drinking water.

6. LOVE YOUR BOTTLE


Fall in love with a simple water bottle, and carry it with you always. Make the bottle your own with stickers and your name. Check out Everly’s glass bottle here.

7. CELEBRATE!


When you hit your daily goal, reward yourself! Whether it’s with your favorite TV show or a sweet (but healthy) snack, be sure to celebrate your success.

8. EAT YOUR WATER


Many foods – like cucumber, bell peppers, watermelon, and grapes – have high water content. Reach for some fruits and veggies next time!

9. FILTER FOR BETTER FLAVOR


Filtered water often tastes better than your regular tap water. Try a Soma pitcher or a Bobble bottle!

10. ONE-TO-ONE


When drinking alcohol, drink a glass of water in between each alcoholic drink to prevent hangovers, stay hydrated, and counterbalance all the sugar in your mixers.

11. WATER RESET


You may have trained yourself to need the taste of super-sweet beverages. For a full week, reset things and switch between glasses of water and of a natural, sugar free drink mix like Everly.
