How To Drink Water Properly?

Drink water with a straw. Gulping down one’s drink is more likely to give you sore throat, especially if the water was cool.
Maintain sipping consistency of 16-24 oz per hour while consuming an adequate diet of food and fluid. For most people this means 4 cups of water per mealtime plus 6-10 additional cups throughout the day for good measure.
Replace fluids after excessive sweating or urination due to illness, fever.
Be sure that your hands are clean before touching any drinking fountain nozzle or spigot even if it has been previously used by others, or you could get sick from bacteria found on this surface area. Never drink standing directly above a drinking fountain nozzle.
