How to Track Your Water Intake

Today's topic is all about how much water you should drink each day.

Here are some tips for how to track your water intake along with other important reminders:

  • It’s way better to sip than chug. Try to make small goals for yourself. Drinking four ounces (1/2 cup) of water every hour is a great way to keep your organs happy.
  • Visual aids are a great way to maintain consistent fluid intake. Time-stamped water bottles can be a great tool to keep you sipping throughout the day.
  • Finally, don’t forget to limit bladder irritants like coffee, tea, caffeine, alcohol, and carbonated beverages (including seltzer!) to no more than 1/4 of your daily fluid intake.

Reminder, a hydrated body is a happy body, especially in the summer when our bodies lose more water due to sweat.

Happy sipping!
