We all know that drinking a healthy amount of water is essential to our health. Establishing healthy water-drinking habits can be easier than you think. Consider these tips from the Water Way of Alabama to help you get started!
#1 Use a Water Tracking App
From Waterlogged to Plant Nanny (one of our favorites!), there are many apps out there that can help you track your water consumption in a fun way. For example, Plant Nanny gives you a little virtual plant. You can name your plant and interact with it using the app. The way to help your plant grow and flourish within the app is to drink more in real life! For every cup of water you drink, you tap a little circle which helps feed your plant. Who said drinking water has to be boring?
#2 Add a Little Flavor to Your Water
Another way to make staying hydrated less boring is to spruce up your water with some flavor! Help your body get all the minerals it needs by adding a little kick to your water. You can try natural fruit and vegetable flavors, like cucumber or lemon. If you’re looking for something a little sweeter, you can try berries, like raspberry or blackberry. Infuse your water with something fresh to help yourself stay hydrated, and watch! In no time, you’ll be drinking your recommended 8-10 glasses per day.
#3 Drink Water with Your Meal
It might sound like a pretty simple tip, but it is more useful than you think. If you drink water with every meal, you are already drinking three glasses a day! Often, when we go out to eat, we opt for a soda or sports drink. Though those types of drinks feel satisfying, they can actually contribute to dehydration because of their sugar content. So, whenever you have the choice, choose water.
#4 Fill Up at Work
If you don’t already have a water cooler at the office, it is time to talk to your boss. A water cooler at work has proven to increase employee water consumption. Not only does it help hydration, it helps productivity as well! Stepping away from your desk to engage with other coworkers and grab a glass of water helps you in more ways than one. It has been proven that this small break from your daily tasks can help boost memory as well as cognitive function!
