One thing that I have always struggled with was drinking enough water during the day. I would always have a glass sitting out on the counter by the sink (just like my mom did when I was a kid) but often it would sit there ignored for majority of the day. Finally, I have found a way that keeps me on track...
This is how I get myself to drink a gallon of water every day. It feels so good when I make my mark every two hours. Silly, yes, but it works for me.
