Do you want to be thirsty for water so that you can drink sufficient water 💧 per day. Here are my top ten tips that I actually use to train myself to drink more water
HOW AND WHEN TO DRINK WATER
- SET A GOAL
One biggest question is how much water we should drink per day. We should drink eight cups of water throughout the day ( one cup is eight ounces about sixty four ounces of water). But there’s so many factors which affects the quantity to be consumed . All these things will factor into how much water you should be drinking, your weight, your height, how much you
exercise daily, the intensity of your exercise, even the weather conditions, the color of your urine, it all depends. But it’ll give you a rough estimate of how much water you should be drinking.
- TIME TO TRACK IT
In the beginning, when I started drinking water, I used to track my water intake with an app.I love the water tracker on the app Lifesum,because it makes those cute little water splashing noises.It makes me feel like I did such a good job when I drink a glass of water. It’s so satisfying.And now it comes so automatically for me that I just track it in my head every day, without taking much effort. But this has been like a year in the making. I’m like a pro now. I think in the beginning, it does help to track it.
- MARKED WATER BOTTLE
What I did was I just got a marked water bottle, and it gives timeslots of when to drink and how much to water. If you don’t have this kind if bottle then mark it with the marker. In the beginning, I would fill up my water bottle, and then realize it’s like 2:00 p.m.and I really drink up to like 8 a.m. It’s kind of like a fun little game, like you have to drink this amount of
water by that time, or else!
- DRINK WITH A STRAW
Alright, this next tip has changed the game for me. This hack has allowed me to seamlessly drink more water without even realizing it. It makes drinking water like, ten times easier, ten times faster, and I recommend it to everybody!
Straws! Drink through straws. I usually drink out of glass straws. This is my typical water drinking setup. I have a 16-ounce Mason jar.
And I drink so much more water this way rather than trying to chug it through the mouth, you can’t really intake that much water that way. And I like glass straws because they’re more eco-friendly. I also just try to drink everything with the straw now, even my coffee because it helps to prevent it from staining my teeth. It also prevents acidity from hitting your teeth.
- INVEST IN A CUTE WATER BOTTLE
this was an investment, okay? Like a $50 investment.
It might sound ridiculous,but it kind of goes in the same realm of buying cute workout clothes to motivate yourself to work out. Well, it feels like you’re drinking the cute packaging, you know? And it will definitely motivate you to carry it around with you, to drink out of it. I recently got this beautiful Hydro Flask with of course the straw lid. It’s just like a pop of fun color, it makes me more excited to drink water. It makes me feel like I’m somehow drinking neon pink water when I’m not. Believe it or not, it makes a huge difference.And this one’s also highly functional because it keeps my water cold and hot for a really long time.
- SIP ON A GLASS OF WATER BEFORE YOUR MEALS
I’ve been taught this ever since I was little to drink
water before my meal, not afterwards. It helps you to feel fuller before you eat, so you don’t overeat. And also this kind of challenges you once again to spread out your water intake throughout the day. So I usually like to drink a glass of water before breakfast, a glass of water before lunch and dinner. And it’s a good way of kind of scheduling my water intake in my head, so I’m continuously drinking water.
- STIMULUS TO DRINK WATER
If you really just don’t like water, if you need some kind of stimulation, try making the switch from soda to sparkling water. I’m personally not a fan of carbonated drinks, but if you are, sparkling water is a great place to start. Maybe you go from soda, to flavored sparkling water, to just plain sparkling water and then to water. Take it slow and easy.
- EAT WATER RICH FOODS
This is something that I think a lot of people neglect. That is eat water rich foods. Drinking plain water isn’t the only way to get more water into your system.
If you’re eating a diet that’s abundant in plant-based food, so a lot of fruits and vegetables, your body will naturally be taking in so much more water. I’ve been personally motivated to eat more water dense foods after reading many articles on this topic. You will not imagine even just the banana is about 75% water.
- SET A TIMER REMINDER
Guys, smart phones are useful. Set an alarm three to five times throughout the day,every thirty minutes if you have to. It’s really about keeping you alert so that you’re continuously drinking water throughout the day and you’re not forgetting to.
- JASS IT UP.
Make your water experience a little
bit fancy if you have to. Every morning, I like to squeeze some lemon juice, add in some sliced up lemon into my water. This is great for digestion. I also have fruit infused water. I don’t really do this, but honestly, just
adding a few berries and some herbs, maybe mint, cucumber, citrus, this not only gives your water flavor,
but it does wonders for your skin, and your overall happiness.
Alright guys, that is it for how you can
drink more water-water-water-water!
