Top 10 Apps That Help You Track Your Water Consumption

With such busy lives and so many distractions, it can be hard to keep track of healthy habits. For those looking to kickstart their healthy journey, increasing the amount of water you drink daily is a great way to begin. 

Our bodies are made up of around 60% water. Water is vital to our survival and well-being; it carries nutrients to our cells, helps to flush out toxins, and regulates our temperature. Therefore, drinking enough water daily is essential to keep these (and many other) functions working optimally.

How much water should I drink a day?

Recommendations vary somewhat, but the consensus is to drink around eight glasses of water per day. 

Lindsay McLain, VP of Marketing at JUST Water, says, “As a general rule of thumb, we should drink a minimum of half our weight in ounces to stay hydrated. And now we have no excuse not to because there are so many great water options, including mineral-rich spring-sourced water, zero-calorie flavor-infused water, and carbonated water beverages to help keep your intake level in a healthy zone.”

To help you stay on top of your water consumption, here are the ten apps you can use to track it.
