We all know we should drink more water, but we rarely reach those coveted seven or eight glasses a day. In fact, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 43% of American adult’s drink less than four cups of water a day.
Last week, a new initiative called drinkup was announced (this is in the US), which encourages Americans to drink more water to improve their health. Hydration is essential to cleanse our body of toxins, maintain high energy, ensure a strong immune system, and keep our skin vibrant.
If you suffer from headaches, joint pain, or fatigue, the simplest remedy is to drink or drink enough water for your body.
5 Ways to Drink Enough Water During the Day
1. Drink water first thing in the morning
Always start your day with a glass of water. Every night, put a clean glass in your bathroom to be the first thing you see in the morning. Before you brush your teeth, fill your glass with water and start drinking it. Keep the glass by your side while you do your first morning chores just out of bed. The results: Always drink enough water in the morning, at least two glasses of water for breakfast, and get a head start on eight glasses a day.
2.Sweeten the water naturally with fruit
You can spice up your water with a hint of flavor. For example, mint infusions with watermelon, pineapple and cucumber water. If berries and citrus are your thing, a raspberry lemon infusion is also very lively and delicious.
3. Invest in a bottle of water or carafe that you love
Have you noticed how a new outfit makes you feel more energetic and confident? If you are drinking from a very serious or not funny carafe of water, now is the time for an update. Today there are fountains on the market from where you can drink your water in a safer and more visually pleasing way, believe it or not, it makes a difference.
4.Track your progress throughout the day
It is one thing to initiate a change and commit to drinking more water, and quite another to maintain that change until it becomes a habit. An external reminder can be essential to help you keep it under control if you are not used to it yet.
5. End the day with herbal tea
Although water itself acts as a natural elixir, hydration in the form of herbal tea has additional health benefits. Simply squeezing lemon into warm water can help boost the immune system, aid in weight loss and digestion, and even flush toxins from fair skin.
