    All of these reasons are spot-on! I’ve definitely noticed my grocery bill has decreased after cutting out soda. I still splurge on sparkling water, occasionally.

    Now if only I can get my kids to drink water. I send them everywhere with a water ottos, to have it come home unused.

      Yes, that can definitely be a challenge. We started young with the habit with the kids, so now they grab one every time we go out. We have a lot of water bottles all over the place, but at least they’re drinking it 🙂

    A fantastic list! I used to be a pop addict! But I’ve found that since drinking more water (as in, I rarely have pop anymore, maybe once a month) I crave more water. That is my beverage of choice. I also found I drink much more of it when it’s cold, and through a straw! Whatever takes. 🙂

    We all know how important it is to drink plenty of water, but I didn’t know all these facts. Thanks for pulling it all together, I’ll bee keeping my water bottle by my side today!

    Terrific advice! I love drinking water but I have a few children who loathe it. That’s an attitude to change for this upcoming year I hope! Welcome to the WAYWOW group!

    My husband quit drinking sodas and tea along with changing his eating habits and lost 40 pounds 20 years ago. He made himself a promise that he would never drink anything but water and has kept to it. I have never seen drink anything else. He says he feels so much better than he use to. Thanks for sharing these tips!

    It’s always a goal to drink more water and these are great reasons for me to make sure I meet my goal. Thanks for the reminder and sharing on Merry Monday.

    Great ideas! I am focusing on one healthy habit each month in 2016 (for my personal health and on my blog), and January’s habit is drinking more water. Perfect timing!

    I know it, it’s just hard to do it! This year I’m really going to try with some practical things like the bottle of water on my desk at work. I’m going to get a glass right now to start my year off right! Thanks.

    • Erin says

      Perfect! I think it’s a great idea to have a water bottle at your desk…you’re so much more likely to drink it then 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. XO Erin

    Drinking more water is always beneficial. We always drink water at night before hitting the bed and hat water after waking up. It helps in keeping the digestive system fully functional. It also saves from high blood pressure and stroke.
