So after months of Monday’s trying to remember to drink water and by Tuesday totally forgetting, and then resorting to setting reminders on my phone to drink water (and then forgetting to do that too).
I finally found the solution to my problem.
It’s an application that allows you to track your water (and other beverage) consumption and tells you when you’ve reached your goal for the day. That goal is set by inputting your weight and activity levels.
I like this application because it does its job by reminding you to drink water but not to the extent that it annoys you. You can still ignore the notification and when you pick up your phone it will display a little glass of water in your notification bar as a reminder. The notifications also stop at bed time and start again when you wake up, so be sure to set your sleep and wake times on the application.
