Water is a huge issue for me. I'm a teacher and often can't even think of going to the rest room for a 4 hour stretch. So I've little choice but to spend most of the morning dehydrated.

Hi Everyone,
I thought I would start a new thread with a couple of tips for getting those 8 glasses of water in every day. Here are a couple that I use.
1) Add frozen fruit juice to your water. Just get some 100% fruit juice with no added sugar, and pour it into ice cube trays. Measure the cubes to see how many ounces each one holds. Since a serving of juice is 6 ounces, you can have the equivalent in cubes, in your water. It gives the water a fruity flavor, and is really refreshing. Plus you are knocking out 1 serving of your daily fruits and veggies intake, BONUS !
2) Get a 32 ounce water bottle. I fill mine half way, freeze it, then add room temp water to it. I'm in Florida, so it doesn't take much time for the ice to melt. When I have finished that bottle I have had half of my daily water.
3) you can also add frozen fruit to your water. I love to add frozen peaches, strawberries, and grapes to mine. They chill the water and add a little fruit flavoring to it too.
4) You can also get your water in by drinking herbal teas, like green tea, for it's anti-oxidents, and a cup of chamomile about 30 minutes before bed will help you to get to sleep faster, and it counts as a cup of water.

Do you have any tips or tricks for getting in those 64 ounces every day? If so, please tell us here.
