My Top Tips for Keeping Hydrated All Year Round!
So we all know that we need to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to keep our system healthy, happy and hydrated….but how many of us actually do it?
Some of the main reasons people are not meeting their daily water intake is a) failing to pack and prepare a drink bottle and b) they don’t actually enjoy drinking water.
Set yourself hourly reminders:
Either using the memo feature on your phone or downloading an app such as ‘Waterlogged’ to help spur you on and remind you to keep on sipping.
Set yourself a challenge:
I like to set myself a daily challenge, aiming to drink 4 refills of my bottle while I am at work to help keep my mind on the drink and to keep myself accountable.
Keep it handy:
Always bring water! Wherever I go I am sure to take my trusty water bottle with me. There is nothing worse than being stuck somewhere feeling parched with that oh so frustrating headache beginning to take charge. If you work at a desk always keep a glass or bottle handy while you work. To help you sip throughout the day.
Style it up:
Ok so you are probably not going to want to carry around that old school sports bottle with the chewed lid or that scrunched up Mount Franklin bottle now are you? I recommend investing in a quality bottle that you can carry everywhere you go. I love this one from Made by Fressko. BPA free, inbuilt infuser for tea, roots and spices, stylish compact design and made from completely organic materials! There is no way I am leaving this bad boy behind!
Add some Flavour!
that will motivate you to drink:
Infuse these fruity combinations overnight for the best effect.
- Lemon & Ginger
- Blueberries and mango
- Watermelon and lime
Or put on the kettle and help beat the winter chill by enjoying a nice warm glass of infused water or tea;
- Lemon & Ginger
- Mint leaves
- Apple Pie- sliced apple, ginger and cinnamon
