I have all ready addressed the importance of drinking at least 3 liters of water each day, but I have more to say.
Admit it, sometimes water just doesn’t sound like the most exciting thing to consume when you’re craving something carbonated, caffeinated, or flavored. Oh how our bodies are obnoxious to crave unhealthy things!
Here are 3 tricks to Enjoy More Water:
1. Drink from a fun water bottle/glass.
Why does drinking from a cool bottle make water taste better? It’s not backed by any rule but I know it’s true. Check out this adorable mason jar, paisley glass, turquoise tumbler, or monogrammed mason jar.
2. Add fruit to your water.
Go crazy adding fruit into your water! Soak the fruit overnight with the water to make the flavor more intense.
Adding lemons, mint leaves, cucumbers, ginger is just fun! Play spa day while at your office. Close your eyes a moment and breathe…ahhh.
3. Carbonated water.
Carbonated water can be confusing. Is it good for you? It’s really not that hard though, carbonated water is just that, carbonated. water. It’s water, it still hydrates. It’s just added carbonation. Carbonated water has been my latest obsession. If you’re trying to quit soda, carbonated water is a great way to slowly wean yourself off but still get that carbonation feel.
Other helpful ideas and tricks I use to get in more gulps::
- Chia seeds can hydrate quicker and keep you full. It’s great for during a workout.
- Might as well add some competition. Challenge yourself in a drinking game. Every time you receive an email, chug for 5 seconds. Bahaha.
- Make it a rule to drink a full glass before you eat anything. If you really want that naughty treat that is tempting you, you must first drink a full glass of water.
