Track your hydration with a water log

Filed under: , ,

Whether you're a committed guzzler or swig it in moderation, whether you're a sipper or gulper, it can be tough keeping track of how much water you actually drink during the day.

To get a tap on how much water you're really drinking, keep a "water log" for a week. Keep note in your day planner or on a sticky note on the fridge. If you want to keep your count close at hand, choose a water bottle you don't mind writing on. Use a Sharpie or similar permanent marker and add a slash mark directly to the bottle every time you refill. You can also make marks on masking tape that can be peeled off at the week's end.

By the time you prep sandwiches and schedules for the following week, you'll have a good idea of how much water you drink on a daily basis. With a quick glance at your water log, you'll also know if you need to pack an extra bottle of water to keep in the car, your work bag or on your desk.

Happy hydrating!
