2) Have water available: Whether it’s at your desk, in your car, at the gym, have a bottle of water with you at all times.

3) If you’re cold, drink a glass of warm water instead of coffee or tea.

4) Eat plenty of Fruits & Vegetables: Not all of your water requirements need to come from the tap – remember fruits & veggies are a tasty way to stay hydrated too!

5) Have a water schedule: Glass of water with breakfast, one during morning snack, etc.
