We all know that drinking lots of water is good for our body & for glowing healthy skin. And we’re well aware that we should be drinking at least two litres of water. But how many of us can confidently say that we do?
The benefits of drinking the right amount of water are endless:
- Helps with digestion
- Great for your skin
- Manages your acid/alkaline balance
- Flushes your toxins right out
- Boosts your immunity
- Prevents headaches
- We can just go on and on, really
But how can you get yourself to drink water, day after day?
Here are our six top favourite ways!
Get an App
We love how technology makes life so much simpler. There are many apps in the app store that help you keep track of the amount of water you drink. You can set reminders and reach daily goals!
Or you could go old school. Use the calendar on your desk or refrigerator to add in your daily water intake. You can see the progress you make every week or month, and you won’t even realise when this will turn into a habit!
Motivational Water Bottle
You know the kind that will make you want to pick it up and take a sip? ‘Goals are reached, one sip at a time’, ‘Yes, you can’, ‘Drink water, work hard, stay strong’. Plus point you’ll be motivated to stay hydrated if it’s right in front of you and with you at all times.
Set small challenges for yourself every day. Start with 4 glasses of water and slowly reach 8. Tell your friends and family about the challenge, so, you have to treat them if you don’t complete your challenge.
Infused water is great for health. Cut up some cucumber, lime and add in some mint leaves to give water a refreshing flavour this summer! You could try many combinations depending on what you like. Try getting an infuser bottle and leave a mix overnight in the fridge for great results. Keep varying your infusion combinations, so you don’t get bored - do whatever it takes to drink up!
Get a Water Buddy
It’s just like having a gym buddy, the only difference is that here the two of you will motivate each other to have two litres of water! You can add more friends, because more the merrier!
So, there you go, ways to get yourself to drink those eight glasses of water!
