Tuesday Tip: My Water App

By Kevin Jackman

Everyone knows how important water consumption is. I believe my science teachers used to say our bodies are made of roughly 70% water. We require water for almost every function within our bodies, from flushing out toxins to digestion. Water is an essential element to a healthy lifestyle, so it helps to know how much our own bodies need. Allow me to introduce you to “My Water.”

“My Water” is an app that allows you to monitor your water intake in real time.

When I first heard about this app I thought it would be something that would tell me to drink ONLY water (which is not a bad thing, but personally, it would just be very unmotivating for me.) Luckily, that is not the case with this app!

“My Water” accounts for the water volume within almost every drink you can think of.

Simply select a drink. Whether it be soda, coffee, or juice, select the amount, and watch your daily water intake rise!

For instance, my co-worker Tony Coughlin is on a strict bourbon and yogurt diet. If Tony wants to input his drinks for the day, he would simply slide over to the second “select a drink” tab and select the “Strong-Alcohol” option.

Unfortunately, there is a catch. The free version of the app only allows you to input water, coffee, and tea. In order to have access to all drink options from coconut water to Kombucha, you will have to pay a one-time fee of $4.99. This is an app I would pay for simply because it adds a fun spin on drinking healthy. Give it a try, your body will thank you!
