Put markings on the the side of your water bottle corresponding to certain hours of the day to make sure you drink enough water all day.
According to the Mayo Clinic, The Institute of Medicine determined that since water is your body’s principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight, an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day.
What about the advice to drink eight glasses a day?
Everyone has heard the advice, “Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.” That’s about 1.9 liters, which isn’t that different from the Institute of Medicine recommendations. Although the “8 by 8” rule isn’t supported by hard evidence, it remains popular because it’s easy to remember. Just keep in mind that the rule should be reframed as: “Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day,” because all fluids count toward the daily total.
Except vodka. I don’t think vodka counts.
