Health Tips - Water Set Aside Daily
Body care should be as simple as possible, including keeping track of how much water you drink each day. Most people don’t really know how much water they drink every day. I don’t want you to have to figure it out at the end of the day, or worse yet, not have a clue how much you drank. “I think I had one glass before lunch and. . .” Most people don’t know how many ounces they are drinking when they drink a “glass”. There is quite a variety of glass sizes.
The simplest solution is to set aside in the morning the exact amount of water you should drink for your weight. See this health tip to learn how to calculate that amount. Add extra water to this figure if you drink alcohol, caffeine, or soda, or take drugs or exercise. Add extra water again if you are dehydrated for any other reason.

It really helps to have the correct size container staring at you all day, such as a 2-quart glass pitcher. It is a visual reminder that shows you what you have or have not had to drink. No calculation necessary!
