7 Ways to Sneak More Water into Your Day


| 7/11/2017 12:44:00 PM


Most of us know we should drink plenty of water each day to keep our body running in high gear. Water regulates our body’s thermostat, cushions our joints, shuttles oxygen and nutrients to cells, flushes toxins from organs and hydrates our skin.

Drinking more water might also improve your mood, sharpen your metal focus and help you lose weight.

The most recent guidelines, published in 2004, advise healthy adults living in temperate climates consume 12 to 13 cups (men) and 9 cups (women) of water each day. Pregnant women need 10 cups of water each day and women who breastfeed should drink 13 cups.

If you exercise or engage in any activity that makes you sweat, you need to drink extra water to replace what you’ve lost. Hot, humid weather also drives up the body’s need for water.



All beverages – excluding alcoholic drinks, which cause your body to lose water – count towards your daily water requirement. That means milk, plant-based beverages, fruit juice, even coffee and tea hydrate you.
