It is important for us to take in water, however, we forget to do so or just do not like doing it. Drink water regular may be boring especially since it is tasteless or just tiresome because of the numerous bathroom trips. Also, inadequate water intake is hazardous to our health since we get dehydrated which could result in headaches, confusion, and dizziness. To avoid these symptoms and bad moments, here are top tips on how to drink water more regularly and not forgetting to do so.
Make it accessible.
The first rule of turning something into a habit – make it easy to do. In order to drink more water, have some. In this case, you may have your water in a bottle or a glass or a mason jar on your desk always at hand and you’ll drink more naturally.
The easiest way to get yourself to drink more water is to make it taste good. It especially helps if you are trying to transition from sweet soft drinks into drinking something that has no taste whatsoever making it all that harder to get used to. You can use any flavor you like, make cucumber or lemon water. Try as much as possible to keep away from any sweet additives.
Add a straw
Do not love milkshakes? I do. Other than the taste, I love milkshakes since the have straws which makes them easier to sip. I tried adding a straw to my water glass and I found that I sipped more water than before. You too, can it this technique and see the change. Be sure to share your different experience with others.
Tracking your water intake will help you be accountable for how much water you take and more that you need to take. This can be through daily or frequent reminders on your phone through alarms or computer reminders. You may also consider mobile based applications, I use the Water Drinking Reminder for the Android users and Daily Water Free for the IOS users.
