Drink of the Wise


Good morning Mintdom!

Who would have thought that getting 8 glasses of water down in one day would be so challenging! My dear sister, Becky helped because we have a bet going that we need to drink 8 glasses of water a day and the first one that doesn’t has to buy the other one a manicure. I swear, I think she fudged her water intake so I would not lose! LOL She is the one who found the water picture and she will send me an e-mail with 5 of those photos to remind me to drink.

Anyway, we both have 1 day under our belts. The bet lasts until the end of May. Hopefully it will be a habit by then.

“Water is the only drink for a wise man.” – Henry David Thoreau

If you find it difficult to get in your 8 glasses of water a day as I do, here are a couple of tips that I learned.

  1. Drink water through a straw (this is a help for me)
  2. Put a little flavoring in your water (not for me) 
  3. Buy a huge jug to keep your water with you (mine is an obnoxious green so I see it on my desk)
  4. Drink one glass of water the first thing when you wake up. (not for me)
  5. Weight Watchers allows you to count one decaffeinated drink as water per day (not part of my bet)
  6. Keep cold water in your refrigerator (ice water burns more calories)
  7. Make a bet with my sister (or a friend) LOL

How much water do you drink in a day? If you have additional tips, please feel free to share them here  

AffirMINTion: I love to drink water!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

  1. Ha! Fudge my water intake! I don’t THNK so! I’m already picking out OPI Color #3426 called ‘water under the bridge’ Betta drink up sistah! 😉

  2. I am going to make a suggestion some may scoff at. Find a container you enjoy drinking water out of. It makes drinking it more pleasurable. I’ve found plastic handled mugs with straws keep my water colder, make it easy to carry and water goes down faster!
