The importance of drinking water is always reiterated to you in different ways. However, often one fails to consume the adequate amount of water required by the body.
Let’s look at ways to increase the intake of water.
1. Carry a water bottle
No matter where you go, a handy water bottle in your bag is a must. By doing so, every time you feel thirsty, you can immediately gulp down some water from the bottle rather than keeping yourself thirsty for long.
If you belong to the kind of people who need to be reminded to drink water, then set an alarm that would beep after every hour and remind you to drink water.
When a bottle of water is kept right in front of your eyes, it is more convenient for a otherwise lazy person to pick it up and drink from it. Be it your office desk or your bed; make it a habit to have an attractive bottle right in front of you.
4. Tasty additions
If plain water is not you are very fond of, add interesting flavors to it to make it easier to consume the required quantity of liquid for your body. Adding lemon, rose or any other refreshing syrup to your water can help you achieve your target.
5. Sticky Notes
Writing and sticking witty and alarming one liners to remind yourself about drinking water can be another effective way. Stick these notes at the places you tend to spend the most amount of time. It could be your desk, living room or any other space in the house.
6. Soups and Juices
Changes or additions made to one’s diet can also help in increasing the water intake. Drinking your choicest fresh fruit juices and soups in the day can also ensure water intake for your body.
7. Fruits and Vegetables
A number of fruits and vegetables contain a good amount of water. Tomatoes are nothing but 97% water and oranges are composed of 87% water. Similarly avocados, strawberries sweet limes amongst many others are rich in water and you must eat them to consume sufficient amount of water on a daily basis.
8. Motivate yourself
Self-motivation plays a very vital role when you are out there reaching a target. Measuring the amount of water and pushing yourself for the sake of good health to drink more water everyday can be an effective way to consume plenty water.
Might seem a mammoth task, but applying simple and innovative techniques to drink more water daily can work in the right direction for you.
