To get my 8 cups of Water in a day, I have a water bottle Fresh and Fit Vortex it has 24 oz of water it holds. I fill it with water, only 3 times a day and I'm not always waiting to get to a sink to fill up a smaller bottle or glass. If I go somewhere I put in the ice in the vortex it came with.

More Information:

It's easier to see that you only fill up something 3 times instead of 8times or more to get your water for the day. It's just a little trick I play on myself to get the water.

  • I have a 24oz. bottle and a 32oz. bottle so I fill both of them up every night before I go to bed, and I know I have to empty them both and drink at least one additional glass of water before bed. Way easier than when I had a 16oz. bottle and had to remember how many times I had already filled it that day. - by JMAC23
  • My "big drink" container holds 32 ounces...2 or 3 trips to the filtered water and I'm pretty well hydrated emoticon - by REMODELINGPAT
  • Oh, and downing 16 ozs when you first get up in the morning helps too. - by KROGERS1976
  • Tip, going to get that water has its' upside, you're getting more steps in and may even run into that person who's been dodging your emails emoticon - by KROGERS1976
  • i drink 64oz bottle of water and fill it 2 times/ the first time is water the 2nd time is 3pks of flavered powder/ sugar free of course/then your not bored with just water or i put lemon juice in also emoticon - by GRAMMY532
  • It can go both ways. Sometimes the big bottles overwhelm me. On days that I'm home, I find you can also get the water in by filling a small paper cup and drinking one of those at the top of every hour and then just having 1-2 of the 16-oz. bottles when I'm walking, or when I'm driving my kids around. - by FATMOM48

    I LIKE HAVING 24oz BOTTLES OF WATER. I HAVE 6 (24oz) BOTTLES OF WATER IN REFRIGERATOR; WHEN I DRINK 3 BOTTLES A DAY I KNOW I DRANK MY WATER. THIS IS SUCH A GREAT IDEA. THANKS FOR POSTING THE COMMENT emoticon emoticon - by KEEPONMOVIN2

    Like everyone else I have a bottle of smartwater or fiji that holds a liter of water. I fill it up 3 times a day and know that I'm getting enough water and it's easy to chug out of and reminds me to drink from it.
    I used to do Bikram Yoga (know I live far away from any studio) and I would fill half the bottle w/water and freeze it for a few hours. Then I would fill up the rest and the water would be nice and cold! - by JENHOANG
  • I am not a big water drinker but I am going to try some/all of your ideas. Thanks guys!

    I do the same thing. Helps me get in my water and I even end up drinking more than the 8 cups recommended! - by ANGIEJAY77
  • I seem to go between a big bottle of water and a smaller one. I have found that if I put rubber bands around the bottle and I take one off each time I refill it helps me remember how many I have drank. I also like the stainless water bottles that you can clip on a back pack and it has its own cover so that the bottle doesn't sweat all over. I have to have ice in my water because if it gets warm I know I won't drink it. - by CHUBBY_BUNNY36

    What a great idea. Thanks. emoticon - by LINLOUTOM
  • I have a sedentary secretarial job SO I don't want a BIG glass. My glass holds 16 oz and that's plenty big enough. I get in more steps if I have to get up to refill! Walk, walk, walk! But to each his own - whatever it takes to get the job done.

  • I like mine cold so I would have to fill it with ice and water, 24 or 32 oz would get warm to fast for me, but I will give the freezer trick a try - by OCTOBER2842
  • I now have a bottle that hold 6 cups, and I am trying to get water in using it emoticon - by TWINKIE14
  • MOLLYSGOAL
    I do the 32 oz container also, fill it with crushed ice and water and it's easier for me to drinnk when it is so cold. Two of those a day but trying for 3-4.

  • I do the same thing with a bottle I have. I fill mine three times a day with my filtered water and I've gotten 9 cups of water for the day- easy! WTG on your water! Keep up the great work!!!
