How Much Water Should You Be Drinking Each Day?

We’ve all heard it since we were little, that we should be drinking 64 ounces of water a day- but who actually does?

Well, science is continually showing that drinking enough water each day helps every aspect of your body- from brain function to weight loss.*

Okay, we get it, drinking water is good for our entire body. But how much of this stuff should you actually be drinking each day?

The easiest answer is to take your weight and divide it by two. And that number is how many ounces you should be drinking in a day.

For example, if you weigh 130 pounds then divide 130 by 2 and you get 65. So 65 ounces is how much water you should be drinking in a day.

Easy right?

And there are fun things you can do to water if you just don’t enjoy the taste (or lack thereof). I like to fill a large pitcher with water and add sliced lemons, limes, or apples to the water and let that sit overnight in the fridge. That way the next day all of my water has a delightful citrus or fruity taste to it. For me, the light flavor encourages me to drink more water.


But what about you? How much water do you drink in a day? Let me know down below.
