Tricks To Drink More Water This Summer!
So summers are here and it is getting sultry by the day! The most important thing to remember during summers is that you need to drink enough water throughout the day. Only then you will be well-hydrated.
All of us know that but still there are some people who avoid drinking water to reduce their washroom visits or are plain lazy to get up and fetch a bottle of water for themselves! Here are Simple Tricks To Drink More Water This Summer!
Keep a tab on your water intake
Technology can come to your rescue if you forget to drink water. There are smart phone apps that keep a track of the number of glasses of water you drink in a day. These apps will send you reminders during the day to drink water after you set the number of glasses you want to drink in a day. Personally, I have been using the app Plant Nanny and it is a fun way to get reminded to drink water.
Jazz it up
Set a timer
You can also keep reminding yourself of drinking water with the help of timers or sticky notes by placing them in places where you spend the maximum amount of time. This will help you drink sufficient amount of water.
Eat fruits and veggies that have water
Apart from providing you with essential nutrients, your fruits and veggies can provide you with a good amount of water. Eating foods like watermelon, cucumber and tomatoes can fulfill 20% of your daily recommended water intake.
Carry a bottle of water with you
If you are heading outdoors or are going to sit at your desk, just make sure that you carry a water bottle along. Whenever you are thirsty, it will be convenient for you to drink water.
When you add soups and juices to your diet, you can increase your water intake. Consuming clear soups or broth based ones will not alone rehydrate your body but will also help in maintaining a low calorie count.
Take water breaks
If you have a desk job that involves only staring at the computer screen the whole day, then you have more chances of missing out on drinking water. Get up in between and take a water break along with your colleague and just relax for a while.
Make drinking water a ritual
You can turn drinking water into a ritual. For instance, you can drink 2 glasses if water when you wake up in the morning, 1 glass after every meal, 1 glass after every restroom visit and once when you retire to bed. This way you will get to drink sufficient water all day long.
Use fancy water bottles
You are more likely to each out for a fancy looking water bottle to drink water. So, keep attractive water bottles for yourself.
Motivate yourself for good health
Self-motivation has a major role to play when you want to meet targets. Measuring the water consumed by you and pushing yourself to drink more water for good health can go a long way!
