Is drinking water more like a chore to you? do you often forget to drink water throughout the day? Here are a few tips to make drinking water an easy task.
1. ADD FLAVOUR TO YOUR WATER
You can add a little bit of excitement and flavor by steeping fresh fruit (strawberries, lemon), veggie slices (cucumber, ginger, celery), and herbs (basil, mint, lavender) in your bottle of water. The longer you let it steep the tastier it will be.
2. DRINK A GLASS AFTER EVERY BATHROOM BREAK
Start a habit by linking drinking water with one of your most common daily activities—going to the bathroom. Getting up from your desk for a bathroom break? Stop by the kitchen to chug a glass of water. It's just another way to build the habit into your daily routine. You'll already be getting up, which means it's a perfect time to stop by the water cooler or the faucet to fill up your bottle or glass.
3. DRINK WATER BEFORE EVERY MEAL
If you are making dinner at home, drink some water while you cook and prep. If you're out at a restaurant, ask for water when the server comes around to take drink orders. If you're waiting for your lunch to heat up or your toast to pop, drink water while doing it. Even if you're putting together a snack, drink that water. Its a simple rule that helps you drink water.
4. USE AN APP TO TRACK YOUR WATER INTAKE
I don't know about you, but for me, if an activity involves using an app, it's a lot easier for me to get into that activity, and maybe even get a little excited about it. Keeping up with how many glasses you’ve finished can be easy (and fun) with the help of a free app. there are so many free apps for android and ios users. Download them and start getting in the habit of drinking water.
5. DILUTE SUGARY DRINKS WITH WATER AND ICE
If you're drinking something extra sweet like juice, lemonade, or iced tea, water down your beverage by adding ice or even diluting a cup with some water. You’ll still get the sweetness you’re craving and have some extra water at the same time.
6. KEEP A WATER BOTTLE NEARBY
When you need to remember to bring something with you on a particular day or get something done, put that something in a place you walk by or look at throughout the day so that you can't pass it without being reminded to do what it is you have to do. Same principle here. It’s easy to remember to fill up on water when the source is nearby. Keep a water bottle at your desk, by the bed at home, and on the kitchen counter as a constant reminder to drink up. The more you have to look at that water bottle, the more you'll remember to fill it and drink it.
7. STICK TO A ONE-TO-ONE RULE WHEN DRINKING ALCOHOL
You’ve probably heard the drinking rule: for every cocktail you drink, have one glass of water. This is a great strategy to stay hydrated while imbibing, and while some people use it in the hopes that their hangover might be a little less brutal the next day if they aren't so dehydrated, it's also a winning strategy for anyone who needs those little rules and triggers to get them to keep doing that thing they mean to keep doing but sometimes forget to (or find a way to avoid).
Now that you have these easy and fun tips, drinking water often doesn't sound so bad, right? Stay hydrated and Slay everyday!!!
