Water is essential. It comprises 70% of the Earth’s surface, and without it, we wouldn’t exist.

Every system of your body depends on H2O. It promotes a moist environment for your ears and throat, flushes away toxins and helps you feel (and look) your best.

Water is important for your teeth, too. It washes away plaque-causing food debris and keeps your mouth moist.

Your body is a temple. And, if you don’t make water your hydration queen, the dehydration dictator will take over.

Our bodies constantly eliminate water — through bathroom breaks, sweating and even breathing. This makes water consumption extra important. Your perfect water amount depends on factors like age, activity level and location. However, the “drink eight, 8-ounce glasses of water per day,” rule is a good baseline.

How can you get your daily water supply? It’s easier than you think.

Get your 8 for 8 with these 8 tips:

Did you know you could eat your water? In fact, you may already hydrate with some of your favorite foods:

1. CELERY

Water and fiber high-five in this nutritious stick. Plus, the chewing stimulates saliva flow, which helps wash away harmful teeth bacteria.

2. WATERMELON

The first half of the word should give you a clue. This seed-filled summer favorite contains 90% water. 

3. SOUP

You may not think of summer as soup weather, but your thirst disagrees. Make sure to look for a low-sodium version, as high salt levels can leave you dehydrated.

4. ICE POPS

These eye-pleasing pops are made mostly of ice. They provide extra H2O and easily increase your daily fruit count.

Not in the mood for a snack? Try these tips:

5. SET AN ALARM.

There are plenty of apps designed to keep you hydrated. If you want to keep it simple, set a “water alarm” for every few hours.

6. ADD A FLAVOR.

A fruit infuser water bottle is an inexpensive way to add natural sweetness. If you’re not into fruit, try a sugar-free flavor powder.

7. MAKE IT SPARKLE!

Add bubbles to make your water regimen a 5-star experience. Buy your favorite brand or make your own at home.

8. KEEP IT NEARBY.

“Water, water everywhere,” should be your new motto. Make it easy to drink water – keep a bottle in your car, at your desk and at any other personal hotspots.

Drink up for a pitcher perfect you!

Water makes up more than half of your body weight. You lose water each day when you go to the bathroom, sweat, and even when you breathe. You lose water even faster when the weather is really hot, when you are physically active, or if you have a fever. Vomiting and diarrhea can also lead to rapid water loss. If you don’t replace the water you lose, you can become dehydrated.
