Drinking enough water

The recommended amount of water is eight glasses a day. I struggle with this so much. I know drinking more water would help me feel fuller and would help stave off hunger, but I just get so bored with it! What do you guys do to break it up?

I am NOT a water person, I can really identify with this. I struggle just to get in about 4 cups a day. I try to get some flavored waters sometimes just to make me want to drink more, but water is just unappealing to me.

I've heard there are lots of things you can add to water--Mio, etc--but that doesn't hold much appeal. I'd rather just drink home-brewed tea without sugar. Nowhere near as bad for you as the sugary stuff, right?

I've been doing a lot better since I put a 2 litre bottle in the fridge every day and make my way through it gradually with a small glass at a time. I used to think I couldn't drink that much but it's been surprisingly easy and this way I am keeping track of it (I put a big label on it saying MUM's WATER to keep the family off it hehe)

I love icy cold water. I keep a gallon sized container (almost 4 liters) of it in the fridge and drink half of that by the end of the day. Besides that, I drink a few cups of coffee in the morning and have tea in the evening. I also love iced tea. Sometimes I think I am going to float away.

I try to keep a water bottle next to me and sip it and refill throughout the day. I also take one out with me too

I wonder if the trick could be to just keep water available along with my tea. Like, have a sip of tea here, a sip of water there, and break it up like that so it's a bit easier. I am thirsty almost all the time, so it shouldn't be as hard. I just have to trick myself into liking it!

Good plan Poppy. I love water so I don't have to trick myself to drink it. I always have water with me. I take bottled water everywhere. I even have a big water glass at my desk during work. I think the key to drinking enough water is to start early. I start right off with water every day.

Me too. I love water. It seems to be the only thing that quenches my thirst. I sort of listen to my body. If I am thirsty, I drink. If I feel hungry, I drink water first and if I am still hungry then I will eat something. It really does help fill you up.
