5 Simple Tricks to Help You Drink More Water Every Day
I don’t know about you, but after having kids my memory just isn’t the same. I was doing some research and found outthat simply drinking more water can repel and even treat Alzheimer’s disease!
Water flushes your system, and regulates a healthy digestive tract. Water promotes heart health and a strong circulatory system. Your body is roughly 60% water, and uses up some of your water supply each day. That water has to be replaced.
The problem is, you probably are not drinking enough. The average adult needs to drink at least 2 litres of water each and every day for optimal health.
As soon as I wake up in the morning I make it a habit to have 600ml at my basin so I drink it first thing!
To inspire you to drink more I’ve written 5 simple tricks to help you drink more water on a daily basis, and your health will see a positive boost.
1 – Make a goal and stick to it! Human beings are great goal setters and achievers. If you just think about drinking more water in the back of your mind, you may be successful, or you may not. However, if you write down a specific goal for daily water consumption you program the habit-forming part of your brain to increase your water intake (i.e my morning ritual of skulling 600ml).
2 – Plan for it. Keep litres of fresh water on hand at all times. Store some in your refrigerator for a cool and refreshing zero calorie treat that also helps fight hunger pangs. Keep bottled water at your job, in your vehicle, at home and in your backpack when you are on the go. The more water available, the more likely you are to drink this healthy beverage rather than an unhealthy, sugar-filled and processed alternative.
3 – Buy a really nice water bottle! Don’t just head to your local $1 store for this purchase. Find a good-looking, functional, BPA-free water bottle you really like. If you are proud to display your new healthy habit, you are much more likely to stick to it.
4 – There’s an app for that. It seems there is an application for just about anything. This includes apps like Daily Water, iDrated, Waterlogged and Eight Glasses a Day. They make it easy to track your water consumption on a daily basis, and range from free to just $.99 per download.
5 – Add healthy natural flavor. Why not pop some blueberries, cucumbers, strawberries, limes or orange slices into your water? When you are done drinking, you enjoy a healthy fruit or vegetable snack. You can also add your favorite herbs for a wonderful aroma while you hydrate yourself naturally.
