Drinking Enough {Water}?

My husband and I watch a show called "the Colony". They do a mock experiment to see what people would do in a distaster. They don't have a lot of the comforts we enjoy. All they are trying to do is just survive.

They mentioned on there about drinking water and the importance of it. You can live without food for 3 weeks but only water for 4 days. They mentioned some of the side effects of not getting enough water and its no wonder why I feel so sluggish, tired and have so many headaches.

My old solution: I would use these water bottles and mark how many I needed to drink.

My new solution: a frig magnet with move over beads. I jsut put it on the frig by my water cup. After I drink a cup full I just move over a bead. I'm so glad I won't have to keep track in my mind. Yah!

The piece of wood is 3"x3" & the wire is 6" in length. I then added some beads before gluing (liquid nails or E6000)the wire in the drilled holes and the magnet on back.

Mod Podge some scrapbook paper and sand the edges.

This might be a little corky but if I feel better its all worth it!

  1. What a great idea! I've been wanting a good solution for this very same problem. I never remember to drink enough water or how much I've had during the day. I think I'll be making one of these little cuties for my fridge.
