Start with a glass of water first thing in the morning, warm and with lemon if you can, but not essential. Drink two or three glasses between meals.
Try to carry a water bottle with you everywhere you go ,stainless steel or glass. Remember to drink the water and not just carry it around with you all day. This can be the challenge so set an alarm on your phone to remind you. A headache or a change in mood could be a sign that your dehydrated, pay attention to these signs and remember to drink.
