Chances are, one of your New Year's resolutions is to drink more water. Drinking more water is such a simple way to flush out toxins and improve your health overall, but it is usually overlooked. It may be hard to commit to your 8 glasses a day, but there are apps that can help with that. Try the Daily Water app, where you can input your default drink size and set a daily goal for yourself, such as drinking eight 8-ounce glasses a day. You can also set alarms to remind yourself to drink water. You can then check off how many glasses you drink throughout your day and can track your progress easily as the days, weeks, and months roll by.
