Drink Up

As a busy mom, almost always wishing I had an extra pair of arms on me, I always forget to drink water! And I’m not the carry-the-water-bottle-around-wherever-you-go type of a person. Actually I don't even really like drinking water. Recently, I read online a great tip for making sure I am drinking a good amount of water each day.

There seems to be a controversy around how much a person needs to drink each day. Is it 8-10 glasses per day? Is it actually only 4? Does it matter if you’re breastfeeding or not? Is the answer different depending on whether you are male or female? I’ll leave that for you to figure out for yourself.

The tip is a great one, I think, especially if you rather drink water that’s not freezing cold from the tap or your fridge. Simply fill with water the number of glasses you wish to consume the next day before you go to bed. Leave them on your counter overnight. I find by doing this any background chlorine taste your water may have has evaporated by the next day. Setting the glasses of water on my counter is a constant reminder to drink up! Every time I come into the kitchen I can visually see how much I’ve had and what I have yet to drink.
