I set a new goal to have half my water by 10 am. (Water used loosely, including the herb tissanes I like) with half that being water when I wake up (14 oz coffee mug plus taking my supplements is easily 16 oz.) and the rest at breakfast and drinking during my work commute. I find this makes it simpler. Over the next 12 hours, it’s easy to drink another 32 oz.
As for all the “just drink it” people, I do drink mainly water. I just noticed I’d forget. Therefore I thought a thread on how people develop the habit would be useful for other sparkers.
Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.
This choice in this moment defines now. What is your now?

Drinking water is a natural for me. It's pretty much all I drink. When want something different, I'll drink unsweetened tea with a little 100% fruit juice.
I **ALWAYS** have my water bottle with me. Currently using a 24oz Contigo. If I'm working away from the house, I also take a 1/2 gallon Coleman jug filled with ice water from our tap to refill my water bottle (we use a Brita filter on the tap).

I have a pitcher and glass in my living room. I also work from home and I have pitchers and reuseable cups with straws filled so I can drink throughout the day without having to get up and refill my cup which would ruin my productivity.

I have half a glass first thing with medication because I have to wait for over 1/2 hr before I can have anything else after taking the med, and apart from that, in the Winter, (which it is here at the moment) I mostly just have cups of tea and a Coffee/Chicory drink. In the summer I drink about 1 extra glass of water plus have very watered down juice or a little sweetened diet soda in water.
