We all know the importance of drinking water and staying hydrated, especially now that the weather is warming up. Of course, this is easier said than done when you’re always on the go, and too many people get to the end of the day before realising they’ve barely had any water. So what can you do about it? Today, we’ll be sharing our top tips on how you can stay hydrated throughout the day – even when you’re busy.
1. Have a range of drink bottles
One of the most obvious ways to keep your fluid levels up is to make sure you take a drink bottle with you before you leave the house. Remember, have a few options on hand so you have different sizes depending on how long you’ll be out or if you misplace one! If you’re looking for a high quality water bottle, Aussie Natural stock Camelbak water bottles to help your keep your water intake up on the run.
2. Set specific goals
It’s much easier to increase your water intake if you set specific goals. Plan ahead and get specific about how much water you want to drink each day and how you’ll achieve it. For example, you could set a goal to drink four full bottles of water each day or to drink a glass of water for each cup of tea or coffee that you have
3. Drink before you eat
A lot of people mistake thirst for hunger and buy a snack rather than pausing to drink some water. Get into the habit of having a big drink of water and waiting a few minutes. In some cases, you might find that water was all you needed and that you were dehydrated rather than hungry.
4. Add some interest
For some people, drinking water is no problem while others really struggle to increase their intake. If you’re bored of water, you can always liven it up to enhance the flavour. Try a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, or get creative with other additions such as blueberries, strawberries, cucumber and mint.
5. Put reminders in your phone
If you have every intention to drink more water but always seem to forget, a simple solution is to put reminders in your phone. Set an alarm for every hour (or more frequently if you prefer!) so you can take some time out to sip on some water. With any luck, you’ll get into the habit of drinking water and won’t need the alarm for long.
