Drink More Water Everyday      
There are a variety of reasons to drink plenty of water each day. Adequate water intake prevents dehydration, cleans out the body, and promotes healing processes. Substituting water for beverages high in calories can also help control weight. Follow the steps below to make sure you're getting enough of this most basic necessity.      
Steps   Warnings
10 Determine how much water you need. You've probably heard the "8 X 8" (2 L) rule--drink eight 8-ounce (250 ml) glasses of water per day (2 L)--but the amount of water a person needs varies depending on his or her weight and activity level. A better way to determine your recommended water intake is to divide your weight (in pounds) by two. The resulting number is the number of ounces of water you need each day. For example, if you weigh 150 lbs., strive to drink 75 ounces of water daily.   10 Increasing your water intake may cause you to have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. To avoid this, you may want to stop drinking water a few hours before bedtime--or make sure you visit the toilet before bed!
10 Carry water with you everywhere you go in a bottle or other container. Before long, you'll find yourself reaching for it without a second thought. Try getting a really fun water bottle that you enjoy having around, it makes drinking water more fun!   10 Drinking excessive amounts of water can cause serious health problems for some people.
10 Keep a glass or cup of water next to you whenever you'll be sitting down for a long time, such as when you're at your desk at work. Drink from it regularly as you're working.   10 People with some heart conditions, high blood pressure or swelling of the lower legs (edema) need to avoid excess water. If you have a history of kidney problems, especially if you have had a transplant, consult your doctor before increasing your fluid intakes.
10 Get a water purification system. Purified water tastes very good and may help make drinking water more appealing to you. Brita filters also work very well.   10 You shouldn't drink too much water while eating as it waters down your stomach acid and can cause digestion problems.
10 If you really can't stand the taste of your water, try adding a tiny bit of fruit juice or a squeeze of lemon or lime--just enough to slightly change the taste. Refrigerating your water may also help make it more palatable.   10 If you live in a place with a lot of heat (e.g., the desert), you will have to drink extra water.
10 Instead of that soda, try a glass of water. It may not be as tasty, but it's a lot better for you than drinking almost ten teaspoons (50 ml) of white sugar. It's also considerably cheaper. Drinking a full glass of water first thing in the morning helps wake the body up. So kick-start your day with water!   10 Keep in mind that the eating of ice may break or chip your teeth, and may damage the enamel. (Dentist's Recommendation) Try sucking on ice instead!
10 Water helps you look good. By flushing out toxins and impurities, water can make your skin clearer, smoother and younger looking.    
10 Drinking water helps you control hunger. Drink a large glass of ice water 20 minutes before meals. The cold causes your stomach to shrink somewhat, which will make you feel full more rapidly.    
10 Some nutritionists believe that you should only drink water at least 20 minutes before a meal and 1 hour after, not during or immediately after eating. The theory is that your digestive juices need to remain undiluted in order to properly break down your food for proper nutrient uptake.    
10 Set a goal to drink only water for a month. Once your body becomes accustomed to it, it will be hard not to drink enough water.
