Drinking enough water feels beyond difficult if youre not tracking your intake or really mindful about how much and how often you sip. But Tia Mowry, a star of the beloved 1994 sitcom Sister, Sister (now on Netflix) and author of the cookbook Whole New You, knows the secret to proper daily hydration: a motivational water bottle.

Im drinking a gallon of water a day, Mowry said during an episode of Glowing Live With Latham,a monthly series on Well+Goods IGTV. [This bottle is] really cool. I love it because Im all about affirmations. It says good morning, hydrate yourself, remember your goal, and then it goes all the way up to 9 p.m. So [to take care of myself,] Im drinking my water, Im meditating, Im exercising, Im just trying to keep my stress levels down.

For Mowry, getting enough water is all part of her approach to wellness, which centers on how she fuels and hydrates her body.

Whats really important and what people dont necessarily think is important is making sure that youre focusing on what youre putting inside your bodybecause your body is all you have, Mowry said. Your body is your vessel, its what you use throughout the day, so youve got to take care of it.

When youre not drinking enough water, you can experience issues like headaches, urinary tract infections, congested skin, depleted energy, and indigestion. Aside from the motivational prompts, having a bottle like Mowrys is helpful because it serves as a constant reminder to drink.

One of the best ways to drink more water is to give yourself easy access to it, saysAmy Gorin, RDN, a plant-based registered dietitian in the New York City area. Carry around a water bottle with you to sip throughout the day. Make sure its a bottle that you likefor instance, there are wide-mouth bottles or ones with straws.

Niti Patel, RD, MS, a dietitian based in New York City, adds that starting good water habits when youre young will help you out as you age when youre at a higher risk of dehydration.

[The elderly] are losing that ability to be like, Oh wow, I should really have a sip of water, or I should eat something that has a lot of fluid in it, Patel says. I was a caregiver for an elderly family member and I always had to be very forceful, be like, Okay, lets have a glass of water now. Okay, lets drink some water. Thats something that you have to do as you get older.
