Tips for Drinking Enough Water
Eight Glasses of water a day. We’ve all heard it but what’s the easiest way to do it? Water is arguably the most important aspect of everyone’s diet. Our bodies are comprised of mostly water and our organs need enough of it to properly function.
Below are a few ways to assist you in your hydration quest.
Eat foods containing water. Watermelon (it’s in the name), oranges, tomatoes, strawberries, and grapefruit are a few fruits with a high amount of water. Cucumbers, lettuce, zucchini, and celery are a few vegetables with high water content. There’s also soup and other water-based dishes you can make to assist you in staying hydrated.
Drink at specific points. Drink a glass of water when you wake up (you have been fasting for a few hours, after all) and also in the evening before you go to bed.
Add flavor to your water. If drinking plain water is too boring for you, adding a bit of flavor can help liven up this necessary beverage.
Keep water bottles handy. Keep reusable water bottles in your office, in your car, and your gym bag. Make it easy on yourself to regularly consume water no matter where you are.
Sip instead of snacking. When craving food, instead of grabbing a snack snag a glass of water when craving food. Water can not only help quench the hunger it will also add to your daily hydration quota.
There’s an app for that. Seriously. If you use your phone all day, consider downloading a water-tracking app. They help keep tabs on your water consumption.
