But you may find yourself asking, “How much water should I drink”?  Furthermore, your busy lifestyle may prevent you from remembering to drink enough water, causing you to feel dehydrated or tired. Fortunately, technology can save the day!

Applications (apps) are available for nearly every category, including drinking water. One app that is particularly popular is called “Water Your Body”. This app, which was updated a few months ago, calculates the amount of water that you should drink daily based on your current body weight that you enter and your lifestyle (exercise, etc.).
