Some water tips

Just wanted to jot down a tip about water. Like most health advocates, I recommend that you drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day (64 ounces). I actually end up drinking closer to 10 glasses (80 ounces). Here’s how it usually works out:

    • I drink two 8 oz glasses of water when I wake up in the morning. I read in


    • magazine once that Raquel Welch starts her day by drinking two glasses of water. Ms. Welch is in her 60s and looks amazing, and I don’t mind saying that I’d like to look half as good when I reach that age. So I remind myself to drink the water by telling myself, “It’s time to drink Raquel Welch’s beauty juice.”

When I get to work, I fill up a 52 oz water jug and sip on that throughout the day. I try to finish it by the end of my work day. Finishing the jug is the equivalent of drinking 6 ½ glasses of water. The jug I have is actually an oversized mug that I bought from QuikTrip. It’s convenient for me because I only have to fill it up once each day and I have a visual reminder of how much water I’ve drunk and how much more I have to go.

Finally, I drink two 8 oz glasses of water first thing when I get home from work. It’s a good way to take care of false hunger since thirst can sometimes be confused with hunger.

This pattern seems to work well for me. I’ve heard of some people who simply drink a cup of water after each trip to the bathroom. I’ve heard of others who try to drink a glass of water every hour they are awake. However you do it, make sure that you keep your system running cleaning by drinking plenty of water.
