We’re sure you know by now how important it is to drink water and how much you need on a daily basis, but we understand that it’s not always easy to drink as much as you should. When you’re busy, it can be easy to forget to stay hydrated, or maybe you’re just not near a convenient source of water throughout the day. We’ve got some tips to help you remember to drink water each day, no matter where you are.
There’s an app for that
There are lots of mobile apps that are geared towards helping you stay healthy, and hydration is no exception. There are apps that give you reminders when you need to drink water, such as the Water Drink Reminder, and others that make tracking your water intake fun, like Plant Nanny, which involves growing your own virtual plants with the water you drink.
Keep a bottle with you
You’re not always near a water point, if you’re out walking or in class, for example, so carrying a bottle of water with you makes drinking more water convenient. Reusable and refillable plastic or stainless steel water bottles allow you to keep water at your desk or in your bag at all times during the day. You can even buy bottles printed with reminders, or draw them on yourself, of when you should drink and how much.
Infuse your water
If you find water too boring to drink all day, then you can try infusing it with fruits or vegetables to add a bit of extra flavor. Cucumber, lemon, orange, and lavender are all great ways to add some zing to your bottle of water. You can even buy infuser water bottles that make this easier for you.
Eat more water
You don’t just have to drink water, adding more water-dense foods to your diet helps to up your intake without even realising it. Juicy fruits like watermelon, apples, and grapes are all good sources of water for your sweet tooth, as well as lots of water-filled vegetables like cucumber, broccoli, and lettuce.
Invest in a water filter
Drinking more water at home and at work is much easier if you constantly have fresh, cold water on hand. Adding a water filter, cooler, or dispenser to your home or office makes it easier to drink enough water each day.
