One way to persuade yourself to drink more water is to set a daily goal for yourself and track your progress. Another way is to remind yourself of the benefits of staying hydrated, such as improved energy levels and clear skin. 

Additionally, you can try carrying a water bottle with you at all times or keeping one in a visible location as a reminder to drink. It's also a good idea to make drinking water a habit by incorporating it into your daily routine, such as drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning, before meals, and during breaks at work.

Drinking water can help maintain a healthy lifestyle in several ways:

Helps with weight loss - Drinking water can help suppress appetite and boost metabolism, which can aid in weight loss.

Flushes out toxins - Water helps to flush out toxins and waste products from the body, which can improve digestion and prevent constipation.

Improves physical performance - Staying hydrated can improve energy levels and physical performance during exercise.

Promotes healthy skin - Adequate hydration can improve the appearance and health of the skin by keeping it moisturized and elastic.

Helps regulate body temperature - Water helps to regulate body temperature, which is important for maintaining a healthy body temperature during exercise or in hot weather.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is:

About 3.7 liters (125 ounces) of total water for men.

About 2.7 liters (91 ounces) of total water for women.

This includes water from all sources, including beverages and food. However, it's important to note that individual needs may vary depending on factors such as age, ***, weight, and activity level. As a general rule of thumb, it's a good idea to drink at least 8-ounce glasses (about 2 liters) of water per day. But you should also pay attention to your body, if you feel thirsty, drink more. If you're unsure about how much water you should be drinking, consult with a healthcare professional.
