How many times have you heard somebody say that you must drink at least 2 litres of water every day to keep your body and mind in check? Doctors and health experts have been telling us this over and over again, and unfortunately not everybody listens and as a result, suffer from a number of health complications that are avoidable simply by getting enough water.
Water consumption should be one of the top priorities for everybody, and if you find it hard to drink enough water, here are some ideas that will help you trick yourself into drinking more of it each day.
Keep a Bottle with you at all Times
Whether you work in an office, a work site or a busy parent, have a water bottle with you at all times as a reminder to drink water. Not only are they convenient, you don’t have to constantly get up and go to the tap like you would if you were using a glass.
In this day and age, we are constantly using our phones, and not just for making phone calls. We schedule meetings, watch television programs and send emails with them, so why not use it to ensure you are getting in enough water each day? There are a number of apps available that allow you to schedule your day and set reminders, so set a reminder every half an hour so that you can drink.
Write it Down
A lot of people who are conscious about their weight often keep a food diary to track what they ate at a particular time of the day. So why not include water in your diary? Write down the time you drank (and how much) and you’ll be able to keep track of your water consumption. Also, water has no calories, so it won’t add any unwanted calories to your calculations. Remember a standard drinking glass is 250ml, so if you multiply that by 8 you have reached the 2 litres.
Add it into Your Routine
If you like to have a cup of coffee as soon as you wake up or brush your teeth before you go to bed, have a glass before doing so. If you feel as though you may forget, have a glass (or bottle) at hand as a reminder and you won’t forget. Once you start doing so, it becomes a habit and part of your routine. In fact, the more often you do something, you don’t even think about it and this should always be the case when it comes to your daily water intake.
