I begin my day with a 16oz glass of water with lemon added, then have another after my walk. Getting 4 cups out of the way early makes it easy.

I drink two big cups of green tea each day and since i have a desk job at a hospital, i drink two of the inpatient water jugs each day. I also keep a Brita water filter pitcher on my desk which also helps.

I always have a glass of water beside me. When I go out I make sure I take a bottle of water with me. Sometimes I add lemon slices to add a little flavor.

I put slices of cucumber in my water, or a few berries and lemons or limes in my water ... that helps quite a bit to change it up and keep the water tasting fresh and interesting. i also drink tons of seltzer water and i put lemons or limes in that ... I have a big cup that holds 4 cups of water so I know I have to drink at least 2 or those daily (I tend to drink about 12 - 14 cups a day) ...

I have both a set of glasses and three metal bottles that hold three.cups....which makes it very easy. I've never been much of a pop person and if I have coffee or black tea past noon I can't sleep so water is a no brainer.

I can only drink plain water when working out. I have a 24 oz bottle that I carry with me for water during exercise the mornings I drink coffee with just powder cream and in the afternoon I switch over to hot tea with just cream. So I'm getting plenty of water during my days.

It's a rare day when I drink fewer than 12 glasses of water per day. I am currently attempting to lessen my coffee intake. I have a 16 oz mug that I fill with half coffee and half hot water three times in the morning. So by 9:00 am, I usually have at least four glasses of water in (or through) me.

I had trouble at first, and some days i still do just because before I started considering my health, I would drink 4 energy drinks and 4 cans of soda. I cut them out of my diet and wasn't replacing them with water until very recently. I got a water container (its 52 ounces) and I don't allow myself to drink anything (except my breakfast shake) until I drink 2 of those containers. The nice thing is that most of the time it takes me most of the day and then I dont drink soda with my dinner or when i'm watching TV

I use a water bottle to make sure I drink eight glasses a day, but I don't find it difficult most days.

I have no trouble drinking all my water. I always have a cup near me when I'm home, and I always fill a bottle to take with me when I go out. Sometimes I add lemon juice, but most times I just drink it plain. If I go out to a restaurant, I always make sure I have water with my meal.

I usually add a flavor packet. Either an Ice tea flavor, or slice of orange or lemon.

Is there a way to make drinking 8 cups of water more doable!? What has worked for you?
