Are you drinking water every day? Admittedly, most people don’t drink a lot of water. Water is great for a lot of people—it keeps the skin healthy, it helps regulate appetite, and it aids in digestion.
But, even if you’re not a big water drinker, it’s important to make sure that you’re getting enough water every day. Here are a few tips on how to develop a habit of drinking water daily:
Have a Glass of Water as Soon as You Wake Up
Drink a glass of water when you wake up. Drinking water first thing in the morning helps to hydrate your body, flush out toxins and energize you.
Drink a glass of water before bed to help the digestive system go smoothly throughout the night.
Make it a Goal to Drink 8 Glasses of Water a Day
The recommended amount of water intake is eight glasses a day. Try to space out your water consumption throughout the day so that you’re drinking small amounts at regular intervals.
Keep a Reusable Container with You
Keep a reusable water bottle with you at all times. A large plastic water bottle is the best way to drink more, as it takes up less room in your cupboard and fridge than smaller containers do.
Bring your own water to work or school each day so that you don’t have to pay for bottled drinks in the cafeteria or vending machine (which can cost $1 per drink).
Keep a small metal or glass container in your car so that when you’re thirsty, there’s no need for an extra trip into town just for some ice-cold H2O! You’ll save money by not having any extra expenses during long drives between destinations.
However, if this isn’t possible due to accessibility issues then consider investing in one of those cleverly designed portable bottles instead.
Remember To Drink Glasses of Water When You Eat
Remember to drink glasses of water before, during, and after meals. If you don’t have time to drink the whole glass at once, try drinking half a cup first and then finishing the rest later on. This will help keep your stomach from getting bloated with too much food.
When eating out at restaurants or ordering takeout food from a nearby restaurant (or even just going out for dinner), make sure that you order something that includes an extra side dish like vegetables or salad on the side so that you can still get all of your nutrients without feeling guilty about not eating enough calories from fruits & vegetables!
This is especially important for people who are trying to lose weight, as eating more fruits & vegetables helps boost metabolism and burn fat. If you’re trying to lose weight, try adding these extra side dishes onto your plate while ordering at restaurants or ordering takeout food from a nearby restaurant (or even just going out for dinner).
Add Some Juice to Your Water
Adding fruit juice to your water is a great way to get more vitamins and minerals into your diet.
Fruit juices have been shown to have many health benefits, including helping you lose weight, preventing tooth decay and heart disease.
Some of the best sources include: apples, oranges and other citrus fruits; pineapple; pomegranate juice (though this isn’t technically considered fruit); cranberry juice—but be careful when drinking cranberry because it can cause urinary tract infections in some people who are prone to them
Did you know that adding fruit to your water can infuse it with vitamins and minerals? Not only does this give your water a delicious flavor, but it can also boost your health.
Citrus fruits like lemons and oranges are a great way to add Vitamin C to your diet, while berries are rich in antioxidants. You can also add herbs like mint or basil to your water for a refreshing twist. So, the next time you reach for a glass of water, consider adding some fruit or herbs for an extra nutritional boost. Your body will thank you for it!
Set an Alarm to Remind You to Drink Water
To build a habit of drinking water, set an alarm to remind you. This can be as simple as having a bottle of water sitting on your desk or nightstand and setting an alarm that goes off every hour. If you’re going to bed at night, make sure it goes off before you go to sleep so that when your body wakes up and triggers its thirst mechanism, there will be water waiting for it!
If possible, try drinking a glass of water every hour during the day (or at least close enough). The best time is probably immediately after exercise; however, any time between meals is fine too—and even better if combined with exercise!
Eat More Fruits and Vegetables
Eat more fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are good for you, so it’s no surprise that they’re a great way to start increasing the amount of water you drink. They’re high in vitamins and minerals, which means they can help your body function healthfully.
They also contain dietary fiber, which helps lower blood cholesterol levels as well as aid digestion by slowing down digestion time (and therefore reducing acid reflux).
Choose low-calorie options instead of high calorie ones when possible! Eating just one serving of fruit or vegetable per day will do wonders for your health—but don’t get discouraged if eating those foods doesn’t seem like enough food because most people need around 2–3 servings per day to stay healthy.*
It is important to remember that your body needs water every day, no matter what time of day it is. We also need to make sure we have enough vegetables and fruit in our diets so we have the vitamins our bodies need as well.
Drinking water can help you with all these things by giving them the nutrients they need plus staying hydrated! It’s a great habit to get into when starting out on a new exercise routine or diet plan because this will help ensure that your body stays healthy throughout each day
