Ways to drink more Water | 10th August, 2017

Drink just one more glass of water a day. Sounds easy enough right? But if you are struggling to take in enough H20, use these tips to meet your daily quota. 

Add your own Flavour
We get it, water can be pretty boring. But instead of using the flavoring agents you see in stores, opt for something more natural—like watermelon chunks and mint or orange slices. To amp up the taste even more, let it sit for a few hours in your fridge.
Order something Spicy
Adding crushed red pepper to your plate will have your reaching for the water pitcher multiple times through dinner. Plus, studies show that hot peppers give your metabolism a boost. 
Use your Phone
Yep, there is an app for that. In fact, there are several. Try Waterlogged for iPhone or Water Your Body (for Android and iPhones). Not big on apps? Just set a few alerts on your phone throughout the day to remind yourself to hit the water cooler. 
Let us be real—if you are stuck at your desk all day or on the road traveling for hours, you are not going to make it a priority to go get water very often. 
The fix: Always keep a big tumbler of water on your desk or a water bottle in your bag so you have no excuse. And if you work at a desk, leave the cup in plain sight so you are constantly reminded. 
Be Prepared at the Gym
If you head to the gym without a water bottle, you are not going to pause the treadmill every few minutes to get a drink, so come prepared. But no need to carry a jug.
Think of your Wallet
Make a pact to only order water at restaurants and you will save calories and cash. Just make sure to ask for tap instead of bottled. Most restaurants use a filtration system anyway, and you likely will not have to pay for the cup of water.
Eat your water
you can technically hydrate with water-rich foods like cucumbers, melons, celery or even soup with a light broth.
Consider it an Appetizer
Drinking 16 oz. (the amount in a regular water bottle) before meals can help you lose weight, according to a 2010 study in the journal Obesity. Just knowing that drinking up can help you eat less should be enough motivation to grab a glass. 
Make it part of your night out
If you are out at the bar, you already know you should be alternating a glass of water for every cocktail. But make it a habit to always drink at least one more glass of water before bed when you get home. Not only will it help you rehydrate after drinking, but it will make your hangover suck much less.
