How to Help Your Family Drink More Water Every Day

I'll admit it. When it comes to drinking water, I am a bad role model. I've never been a big fan of plain water and I almost always reach for coffee first. But I know that drinking water is good for my health, and I don't want to pass my bad habits on to my kids.

That's why I am super excited to be partnering with Primo®, who is sponsoring this post, to learn how to help my family drink more water every day.

And I have some easy tips and a fun printable to help your family too!

How to Help Your Family Drink More Water Every Day

We've all heard that you should drink 8 glasses of water a day. That seems really daunting, but it's not a hard and fast rule. The amount varies by age, weight, and activity level. A better goal to work towards is making sure that you are feeling well hydrated, and that you are choosing water over sugary sodas or juices as much as possible.

I know that everyone in my family, myself included, needs to drink more water every day. Especially as we head into spring and summer, when the kids are more active outdoors. The good news is that there are a few simple things that we can do to help us get there!

Set Up a Water Station

Did you know that families who have a water dispenser in their homes drink up to 25% more water? That's why I decided to set up a water station in our house with a PRIMO water dispenser and PRIMO water.

As the weather warms up, my kids are heading outside to play more, and they don't want to pause for a water break. Having our  Having our Primo Deluxe Bottom Loading Water Dispenser with Self-sanitization stocked with cups and straws right near the door to our deck is the perfect way to have cold water at the ready whenever they need it, without using plastic bottles. In fact, each 5-gallon Primo water bottle saves 1100 single-use bottles from the landfill (or worse, the oceans).

The dispenser also makes it super convenient for me to fill the dogs' outside water bowl (because when the kids are outside, the dogs want to be right there too).

I love our water dispenser. Its sleek and compact design means that I can fit it exactly where I want to, and it blends right into our home. And since it requires no installation or plumbing, I can find a spot that is convenient for us.

It takes just minutes to load the water bottle inside, and it fits either 3 or 5-gallon bottles. Plus, the fact that the bottles load on the bottom means no heavy lifting. Genius!

This dispenser provides access to cool, cold, or piping hot water at the touch of a button. You can even turn off the individual temperatures for safety if you have little kids like mine.

It even has a self-sanitizing feature to clean itself with harmless ozone technology. How cool is that?

I love the fact that the water is purified through several filters and even has added minerals (in the exchange bottles but not the refill bottles) so I know it is smart choice for my kids. My son even said it tastes better than our tap water and I agree!

Add Some Flavor

One of the reasons I struggle with drinking water is that I prefer something with a bit more flavor. Adding a little natural flavor makes it a lot easier to get in my daily water!

Fresh fruits like lemon, lime, watermelon, or berries make water delicious for someone like me who has a sweet tooth. Adding cucumber or mint can make your water even more refreshing and is perfect for hot summer days.

Take It To Go

Filling up an insulated water bottle before you head out of the house is a great way to remember to drink your daily water even when you're not home. And it saves you from stopping for a sugary soda while you're out!

Do the Family Water Challenge

Visual reminders are a great way to motivate people to reach a goal. That's why I created a 30-Day Family Water Challenge for our family, and I have it as a free printable for your family too.

This printable water tracker is a fun way to make sure everyone is drinking their water every day. There is space for four people on the page (feel free to print as many as you need).

When you hit your water goal for the day, you can color in one of the water drops. See who can get all 30 colored in first! You can even include fun rewards at specific intervals, like a family movie night for each 10 in a row. Be creative and have fun!
