    Remind yourself that your body is made up of mostly water. Do you want old, nasty water to sit in there? Or do you want to keep your water fresh and your body clean? Think of it as important as taking a shower. Because it is!

    Drink one glass with each meal and then at least two during the day. Add the crystal light packets if that helps.

    Fill up a 2litre bottle of water and have it with you all day if possible, just take sips from it throughout the day. That’s what I do! 🙂 Also, if you exercise more it’ll make you thirsty, and try to only drink water then

    I have always had a hard time drinking enough water. I get nauseous if I drink it in the morning for some reason. There are a couple things I do to make myself drink more. One thing I do is add a little lemon juice to it, which is actually good for you. It helps to flush out your kidneys. Another thing I do is add Special K drink mixes to it. They have hardly any calories and no sugar. My personal favorite is the pink lemonade, but they have quite a few other flavors.

    You don’t want to go right from drinking 1-2 glasses to 8, but you can bring up your intake gradually. I started filling up a water bottle and carrying it around with me. I promised myself that I would finish it before I leave work (or school – in your case!). Eventually, I moved up to larger sized bottles.

    You might also want to try the Chrystal Light packets to give your water some flavor. Lemonade or Iced tea flavors might go down a little easier than plain water.

    Try not to drink so fast.

    Also, now a days there are all kinds of flavored waters (although personally I’m not a fan) if just plain water is too boring for you.

    Try gently increasing the amount of water you drink. Example, one week just drink 2 bottles a day. then the next week, drink 3. Also, try to at least drink other fluids if you just can’t stand water. Try milk or Gatorade or tea, or anything!

    Dreamer hit it. Go fill up a 2 litre bottle and keep it in your room, it can be from an empty cola bottle or something and have a few and drink one per day, I use to do this and because how convenient it was I drank alot of water, I have to ‘go downstairs’ now because I got shot of them (had them bottles for ages)

    If it’s the taste, get some juice that you need to dilute and drink it that way. Try different teas too.

    I agree with what everyone said about the crystal liqht packets, thats how i drink the most water . Just keep a bottle with you, or you can drink juice or vitamin water and its just as qood for you . You don’t have to drink just plain water . Even eatinq fruit provides a lot of water for your body, believe it or not .. Now, I don’t drink much all day, but at niqhttime i usually make sure i drink a full waterbottle and i also make sure to drink somethinq with dinner, and i almost never feel dehydrated . You don’t need to drink the full 8 glasses if you aren’t runninq marathons all day ^.^ qood luck 🙂

    i had to make myself drink more too…..i found the best way was to get a 2 liter(thats how much you should have daily) bottle of water and mark ever hour of your day on the bottle and try and make the spaces between each hour even.
    then you just have to make sure you drink to each level within that hour.
    it makes it so much easier to drink all you need.
    keep the same bottle and just fill it up each morning!

    good luck!

    I drink 12 to 14 glasses a day. Trick yourself into thinking that water is wonderful. Pour into fancy glasses, add a wedge of lemon or lime…try adding powdered gatorade or Koo laid to your class. If water is hard for you to drink, try freezing the flavored water, you have popsicle or frozen sluchie. Good Luck

    I don’t care much for the taste of tap water, so I always have a half-gallon of cold water in the fridge at my disposal and for every 8oz (about 200ml) I put the juice of a medium size lime. If you’re on a diet, this is fine because limes have almost no calories, but having flavour you’re probably gonna drink more ..

    Just try exercise. start slow and drink a little at a time. the exercise will make you sweat and your body will naturally need to replenish itself. otherwise your lookin to carry around an iv hooked into your arm.

    please try to eat at least two watermelon per day.

  16. Captivated said:

    What I do is put frozen fruit in a cup and fill it up with water, the fruit acts as ice cubes and adds flavor. Or try to add things like watermelon chunks, cucumber slices, or mint to help with the taste of water.
