Though still not that proven by medical experts, I think it is best to follow the eight-glasses-of-water-a-day rule. Others say it is one of the best way for everyone to stay healthy is to make sure your body is hydrated always. In this way, your skin is always well-moisturized, decrease possibility of having colon cancer, and improved waste emission.

Any liquid is also good, and not just limited to water. Coffee, fruit juices, tea, and other liquids will have to do. Here is a simple step by step guide to make sure that you are drinking eight or more glasses of water each day.

Upon waking up, it is suggested that you drink a glass of water. (Counting: glass 1). During breakfast, ensure that your meal goes together with a glass of juice or milk or a cup of coffee. (Another glass: counting glass 2).

While working, fill your cup or office mug with water and make certain to drink all the water while working in the morning. (That is glass 3). And during lunchtime, drink at least two glasses of water. Water can be substituted with iced tea, or soda, or juice. (That is glass 4 and 5).

Drink your coffee during your break in the afternoon. (That is glass 6). And keep your mug or coffee close to you in your work area for the rest of the working day. (That is glass 7).

During dinner, drink a glass of water. (That is glass 8). A nightcap before bedtime is advisable—either a cup of tea or a glass of milk will do. (That is glass 9).

But if a person is feeling sick and suffering from cough and colds, more liquid intake is advisable. Pregnant women are also recommended to drink more than two liters of water per day between meals. The amount of water that you need really depends on you.
