6 Simple Ways To Get More Water Into Your Life.

Drinking water is a key component to your health. It affects every party of your body, from your mind, to your digestion, muscles, and skin. The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) recommends that men consume 125 ounces (3,700 ml) and women about 90 ounces (2,700 ml) of fluid per day, including the fluid from water, other drinks, and foods. But it’s not always easy to do that and our bodies are left dehydrated and not thriving. We put together 6 simple ways that you can increase your water intake so that you can start feeling the benefits of being hydrated.

6 Simple Ways To Get More Water In Your Life

#1 Set Practical Goals

Setting yourself up for success is key, so make sure you set attainable goals that you can easily accomplish. Maybe it’s increasing your water intake by two glasses a day or cutting back on coffee, juice, and pop. Whatever the goal make sure it’s specific, measurable, realistic, and time-bound.

# 2 Invest In A Quality Water Bottle and Bring it With You Everywhere

Often times the struggle can be not having water with you to drink and hours passing without being hydrated. Purchasing a decent-sized water bottle and bringing it with you everywhere you go will remind you to drink water as well as make it easy to do.

# 3 Cut Out Sugary Beverages

Cutting out sugary beverages and replacing them with water is not only a great way to drink more water but also to cut back on calories and sugar. I know this might sound boring but your body will thank you in the long run. Over time you will get used to just drinking water and will start to actually crave it over other beverages. It also doesn’t need to be all business and no fun, allow yourself a cheat drink every once in a while and you can even spice up your water with lemon, berries, or mint.

# 4 Set Reminders

Sometimes a little reminder can go a long way. Set smartphone alarms throughout the day so that you consume consistently and reach your goals.

# 5 Eat foods high in water

This really is a double whammy, these foods will help hydrate you as well as add healthier foods to your day. Vegetables and fruits such as celery (95% water), zucchini (95% water), cabbage (92% water), watermelon (91% water), cantaloupe (90% water), and honeydew melon (90% water) are all great choices for water-filled foods.

# 6 Invest In A Water Filter

A water filter depending on where you live and what you have access to might be more of a necessity than a luxury. But even if it’s not something you strictly need because of the quality of water in your area, filtered water can taste much better than what’s coming out of the tap or water fountain. It can also be helpful to have an investment in something, whether financial or energy we tend to use things more when we invest in them.

We hope these tips are helpful and bring some more hydration to your life. If this feels daunting to you start small, picking just one actionable step to implement into your life at a time and then increasing as you can. Before you know it your skin will start improving, that 3 pm headache will start subsiding, your thoughts will be clearer, and overall you’ll just start feeling better.
