1. Fill a bottle of water when you wake up
By filling water right when you wake up you are much more likely to get a start on drinking more water throughout the day. I like to fill a bottle and drink it before I eat breakfast for the day! I would recommend using bottles rather than cups so you have a better estimate on the number of ounces you are drinking.
2. Drink water before and with every meal
By drinking by before and with every meal you are setting times throughout your day that you know you are drinking water and making progress with your water intake. I would recommend drinking water before your meal especially because your body can confuse hunger with thirst so this tip will help control your hunger throughout the day

5. Drink your water with a straw
