Simple trick to track water intake

August 1st, 2014 § 0 comments

We all know it’s important to drink 8 cups of water per day. It helps hydrate our body and help carry toxins away from our body. As a forgetful person it’s really hard to keep this habit. I’ve tried many ways to remind myself but it never sticks. Although not beautifully executed I was anxious to my idea a try. I hashed it out in a few minutes.

It’s been working really well and I’ve been drinking 8 cups of water daily for the past week. I didn’t miss a day. This sits  on my desk in front of my computer screen within my field of vision. After I finish one bottle I would move one stick over to the left. This is also serves as a reminder to take a small break away from my work while I refill my water bottle. I guess it doesn’t take fancy gadgets, apps, spreadsheets or notebooks to keep a habit. The important thing is to keep trying until you find a way that works for you. I hope this will inspire playful ideas for you to develop good habits 🙂

Materials:

  • Popsicle sticks
  • Card board box (You could use two paper toilet rolls and cover it with some nice wrapping paper to make it look nicer. I just didn’t bother. I was more excited to see if the idea would work more then the looks of it.)
  • tape
  • pen

Cut and tape away.
