I also carry a Sigg bottle with me everywhere. If I have to get up/so out of my way to get water, I often won't bother. But with the bottle I only need to refill it twice through my day, and when it's sitting right next to me I'll mindlessly drink it all day.
I will add, keeping a bottle of water with me all day every day, you can't help but sip on it, and the glasses add up quickly. I drink way more water during the week at work when I always have a bottle on my desk than when at home and I have to go into the kitchen.
Also, I don't use them all the time, but those flavor enchancers, like Miso, are fantastic if you are having a hard time choking down the water :)
Sometime it seems like 8 cups of water a day is a lot, but I have found drinking green tea is one of several ways I use to get my water intake up. Green tea has a lot of benefits health wise and is very low in caffiene.
Eating cucumber slices is a favorite snack and I even like a slice of cucumber in my water.
A little white grape peach juice in my water, flavors the water with out adding a lot of calories. I don't add a bunch just a bit to change the flavor of my water. I carry water with me wherever I go, I must have it in the car with me or I may not reach my goal of 8 glasses of water.
I feel better actually when I am hydrated and that is worth it!
Hope you all are doing well! blessings on your efforts! :)
