Did you know the brain and heart are made up of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water? The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even surprisingly the bones are watery: 31%

Healthline Media estimates that most people need 2,700–3,700 ml of fluid per day, including fluid from water, other beverages, and food.

However, looking at our day-to-day activities, it can be difficult to drink water consistently. If you dislike the taste of water, you can add flavor to it.

 Choosing from these simple tips can help you boost your daily water intake.

Drink one glass of water before each meal

Drinking one glass of water before each meal is also another easy technique to increase your intake of water.

If you are the type who eats three meals a day, this adds an extra 3 cups (720 ml) to your daily water intake.

Sometimes when you feel hungry, drinking a cup of water before eating can help you know whether you were feeling true hunger. Because the body can mistake feeling thirst for hunger.



Eat more foods with a high amount of water

One simple way to get more water is to eat more foods that are high in water.

Watermelon, tomatoes, cucumber, apple, lettuce, and a few contain a high amount of water.

In addition to their high fluid content, these fruits and vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that promote your overall health.

Drink one glass of water when you wake up and before bed

I do take a glass of water before I go to bed and when I wake up, the first thing I do is take a glass of water before I brush my teeth.

A glass of cold water in the morning may help wake you up and boost your alertness

Plus, drinking water before bed can keep you from waking up with a dry mouth and bad breath.
