Easy Ways to Drink More Water Daily


We’ve touted the health benefits of drinking a lot of water, and even wrote about the health benefits here.  Now Health Fitness Revolution is bringing you easy tips for incorporating more water into you daily routine:

  • Temperature: Find out which water temperature you like the most, and make sure you always have some on hand. If you like water ice cold, find a container where you can keep it iced all day.
  • Flavor: Add lemon juice, lime juice, orange slices, cucumber slices, berries or herbs/herb extracts (like peppermint).
  • Bubbles: If you like soda, try sparkling mineral water or  natural flavored sparkling mineral water: none of the calories and all of the carbonation.
  • Bottles: Having a water bottle you like around all the time will make you want to fill it up over and over – and show it off.
  • Straws: Because sometime sipping from a straw can help you drink more.
  • Brew something: Sometimes we overlook tea as a source of hydration, but if you avoid caffeine and sugar, tea is a great hydrator!
  • Remember how good it is: Once you start a healthy water habit, you’ll start realizing how good you feel when you do drink water. And if you start losing weight, keep that in mind every time you think about drinking something else!
  • Use it as a diet tool: Before you reach for a snack, drink a glass of water. Before you eat, and in between meals, feelings of hunger can be mistaken for feelings of thirst. Drink more water and save calories when you’re really just thirsty.
  • Keep it clean: Tap water is usually fine, but sometimes water and even ice can get a funky flavor that makes you not want to drink it. So invest in a water filter, water filtration system, water softener, or water delivery. Anything that helps your water taste better is an investment worth making!
