You know you should drink water every day, but how much is enough? An easy starting point is to divide you weight in pounds by half and convert that to ounces of water.
142lbs ÷ 2 = 71oz of water
That might seem like a lot but…
- Divide it into 8oz cups and it will seem more manageable.
- Remember that your average glass or mug holds way more than 8oz.
- Pick a favorite glass or water bottle and figure out how many you should drink by the end of the day.
- sip water continuously throughout the day instead of chugging a whole bunch at one time.
If this amount still seems overwhelming start with an amount that feels more manageable and work your way up every week. Soon it will become second nature.
