I was never much of a water drinker until I started adding fresh fruit to it. Now, I drink my 8 glasses plus some with no problem. I bought a water pitcher from QVC that has a hollow tube in the middle of it. The tube has strainer-like holes and can be filled with fruits/ veggies. It's awesome!
I fill up the tube with cut up fruits/veggies and then fill the pitcher with water. My favorite is strawberry, with cucumber coming in a close second. The special pitcher isn't required; just muddle some fruit in the bottom of a pitcher and fill; same effect. Yummy!

Drink 8 glasses of water using color coded rubber bands
Drinking water is difficult for me. Now, to be sure I meet my 8 glass minimum, I wrap 4 rubber bands around a 16 ounce bottle of water. Color coding: 2 red (critical), 1 yellow (fair) 1 green (I did it!). Each time I finish the water, a rubber band gets moved up to the top of the bottle. I refill until 8 glasses are rubber bands are at the top of the bottle. I can see my progress and it keeps me focused.
Adding frozen raspberries also helps make the water very tasty!
