Drink More Water

Believe it or not, water makes up 60 percent of body weight, and we lose it rapidly during our normal daily functions. Replenishing its supply is necessary for normal body function, but the recommended amount one should drink doesn't adhere to a hard and fast number. Depending on your gender, health, activity levels, and even where you live, your recommended fluid intake varies. The average, healthy living adult's adequate intake of total beverages a day is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) for men and 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) for women. Aside form rehydration, drinking more water can prevent overeating, provide energy and healthy skin, and even help with digestion. Substituting other fluids, carrying a bottle on you at all times, and even setting little alarm reminders are great ways to train yourself to drink more water.
