If you’re looking for a way to get fit and stay healthy, a great way to begin is by making sure you are drinking enough water. Did you know that an average adult body is made up of almost 70% of water? It’s essential to drink enough for many reasons. It will help to keep your body temperature regulated, circulate nutrients in your body, keep your skin looking good, and remove waste from your body. Water also helps you to lose weight, by making you feel fuller and reducing the amount of snacking you do. It also increases your energy, and can help eliminate that afternoon slump we sometimes feel.
Even though most of us are already aware of the health benefits from drinking water, it’s still hard to remember to drink enough. These apps not only give out reminders to fill your glass, but also make it fun!

This app actually makes drinking water fun. You begin by choosing a plant, and entering in your weight to determine how much water you should drink. You also choose the size of the glass you are using, and then it’s just a press of a button each time you drink a glassful. Your plant will grow and flourish as you drink your water.
