How many times have you been told to drink more water? Your mom tells you. Your doctor tells you. You hear about the importance of hydration at the gym or reading yet another article touting the benefits of water. I’m not sure about you, but I’m the worst at drinking water! – I love it, please don’t take me wrong – but I just forget about it! However, since I understand that my only choice for perfect health is to replenish my body with ample water, here are some tips that have helped me a lot to create the habit:
Add some flavor to your pitcher
Add a bit of excitement by dunking fresh fruit (grapefruit, strawberries, lemon), veggie slices (cucumber, ginger, celery), and herbs (basil, mint, lavender) to your cup of water, by doing this, you’ll never get bored of drinking water again.
Try Drink Up!
Keeping up with how many glasses you’ve finished can be easy (and fun) with the help of technology! There’s a high-tech water cup called Drink Up! and it’s been my solution to keep myself hydrated all day!
This is the perfect tool to create healthier habits and it automatically synchronizes with my phone to give me all the statistics and every ounce as I sip. The cup also detects my drink’s temperature and it sends me reminders to drink water every 30 minutes. Check them out by clicking here!
Eat water-rich food
One sneaky way to increase the amount of water you consume on a daily basis: eat your H2O. Add fruits and vegetables with a high water content to your grocery shopping list. Some top picks include cucumber (96% water), zucchini (95% water), watermelon (92% water), and grapefruit (91% water). It can be a great solution, right?
Hope this post can help you guys too 🙂
