2. Get a good quality glass or stainless steel water bottle for each member of the family.
If everyone has a water bottle they want to carry, they’ll be more likely to drink water throughout the day. For younger children and teens, buy character or sports team water bottles. You can even buy fruit-infuser water bottles.
3. Take it with you
You’ll drink more water when it’s always available. That means taking your water bottle with you in the car, on your walks, keeping water at your desk–in other words make it easy to drink water by always keeping it close at hand.
4. Set reminders
If you find yourself forgetting to drink enough water, you can set reminders on your phone or even download free apps to track how much water you’re drinking. Some popular apps include: Water Drink Reminder on Android, Waterlogged for Android and iOS, and Daily Water for iOS and Android.
5. Have water with meals
Another way to increase your water intake is to drink it with your meals. As an alternative, have just one glass of another favorite beverage, and then switch to water for the rest of your meal.
