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!
