5 Ways to Drink More Water

Sharing is caring!

Thank you to Dasani & The Coca-Cola Company for sponsoring this conversation. Regardless, all opinions expressed are the honest experiences of our family.

I really try hard to make healthy lifestyle choices, but lots of times I fail. I’ve been trying to motivate myself to drink more water and it’s been a challenge.I’d really like to drink at least half, if not more of my body weight in water each day. (Trust me that is a lot of water!) When the weather starts to get cooler, activity slows down and the excuses get easier to make. I usually drink more water when the weather is warmer, but I need to drink more water all of the time.

Thanks to Coca-Cola I can feel better about the water bottles I buy and keep motivated to drink more water. Dasani has introduced it’s green-capped, plant-based water bottle. The water bottle is  is composed of 30% plant materials. It is STILL recyclable and actually twists down to half it’s size when empty. The kids (big kids too) will have a great time doing the twist! I am excited to free up some room in our recycling bin with the Dasani plant-based water bottle.

The current half liter DASANI® bottles contain 45% less plastic than our original 2001 bottle. Dasani is reducing its impact on the planet with their PlantBottle® that simply uses LESS plastic and MORE plant based material.

  4. Set a timer – I know you have phone. Set the timer or use an app to remind yourself to drink up.
  5. Make it game – Challenge yourself or get a buddy and make it a goal to drink at least 4  Dasani 16.9 oz water bottles per day. That will give you the equivalent of the recommended 8 cups of water per day. Try to drink more if you can.

    Great ideas! I can’t drink cold water first thing in the morning as it makes me nauseous so I drink warm water so I can start my day hydrated before my first cup of coffee!

    I drink a gallon or more a day. I just keep a bottle or glass in my hand all day. And keep more water cold in fridge all the time.

    Good ideas that I already use, except… and to use an alarm to tell me to drink….. Annoying!

    The fridge has an oz counter and a nice water filter. I use glass water bottles and use it all day.

    Nobody has told you that we throw away way too much plastic, and all other garbage, already? Four 16 oz bottles everyday? Seriously?

    I tend to get really thirsty at night, but not so much during the day. I wonder if I should just force myself to drink right when I get up. Thanks for the tips this might help me not get up 20 times a night guzzling down water.
