By now, I am sure that you have heard that water is so good for you and you should be drinking as much as you can, right!?
I get it, so I am not here to tell it to you again, BUT, I want to help you out, by letting you know some easy ways to be sure that you are getting in your water throughout the day, especially during the winter months when our skin is drier and we may not realize how much water we need to drink to keep ourselves hydrated!
So here are 5 tips to help you drink up more water each day!
1 – Buy a Fun Bottle
Having a bottle or two that you absolutely love the pattern or style of is a great motivator! Keep it filled up with water at all times – either in the fridge getting cool, or with you to sip on throughout the day. There are so many different varieties of bottles on the market, you’re bound to find one that is the perfect look for you!
2 – Flavor It!
If drinking water is new to you, or if you want to add variety to your water, flavor it up! It doesn’t have to be hard, it can be as simple as cutting up fresh fruit or veggies and adding them into it!
You can use any that you like, but here are some great choices to flavor your water: berries, lemons, limes, oranges, cucumber or even herbs like mint, parsley and basil with watermelon!
3 – Drink Through a Straw
If drinking out of a glass or a bottle with a large opening isn’t your thing, reach for a straw! Drinking through a straw allows you to take bigger sips and will likely have you drinking more in less time.
4 – Morning Routine
As soon as you wake up in the morning, have a glass of water. It gets your metabolism going for the day and starts your hydration off on the right foot!
5 – There’s An App For That!
There’s seems to be an app for everything these days, and drinking water is no different. There are a lot of apps that will let you track how much water you are drinking over the course of a day, a week or even a month. They can often let you know how much you should be drinking based on your body and help you set goals to get to that number. These apps often also have notifications, where they will send out a reminder every hour or so throughout the day to remind you to drink up!
So I have given you 5 tips to help keep you hydrated throughout the day, what are some of the ways that you keep on top of drinking water? I’d love to hear them, so drop me a comment below!
