On a regular basis, you should drink at least 3 liters of water which is approximately 15cups of water, this is a good starting point and maintain this habit. You can even set up an alarm for drinking water as a reminder. Moreover, water intake should be calculated according to your body’s demand but make sure to stay hydrated. Keep a big water bottle close to you and try to drink it by the end of the day.
