Drinking plenty of water can have multiple health benefits ranging from aiding in weight loss to improving brain function. But it can be challenging to remember to get enough water in our busy lives. That’s why we have compiled a list of simple tricks to fit more water into your day!
EAT YOUR WATER
Grab some fruits and veggies high in water content to add in a bit of extra water. Cucumbers, watermelon, and grapefruits are all high in water content!
GRAB A SIP AFTER THE BATHROOM
During our workdays, we spend most of the day behind a desk, but we still need to take some breaks. Start grabbing a glass of water after every potty break. You’re already up, so why not make one more stop?
DILUTE OTHER DRINKS
We’ve all had an overly sugary beverage, next time you are faced with too-sweet tea, water it down. Either add ice or straight water. You will still get the sweetness but sneak in some extra water!
TRACK WITH AN APP OR MARKED BOTTLE
There is something very satisfying about being able to visualize and reach your goals. You can get this effect two ways, by watching your water level go further and further down as you drink. Or by entering your progress in an app.
DRINK A GLASS BEFORE EVERY MEAL
When you are preparing to sit down and enjoy a meal, take the opportunity to drink a glass of water. It will not only increase your water intake, but this is also a method people have used for losing weight.
Some people just don’t enjoy drinking water. That’s okay. If you need something added to your water to make it go down easier, we recommend some freshly sliced citrus. It adds a hint of flavor without adding too much sugar.
