Tricks to Help You Drink More Water Every Day

By Sara Butler

Water is a big deal. You must have it in order to live, so it makes sense to try to work a healthy amount into your day. Though try as you might, sometimes you can fall short of your water goals. It happens, but if you want to stay adequately hydrated, you may need to try a few of these tricks to stay on top of your daily water quota.

Add Some Flavor

You’ve seen people add some crazy stuff to water, no doubt. Maybe you’ve even tried some things to make it taste better. But, there’s a way you can add herbs and citrus with a bit more success than just throwing them in your water and hoping for the best.

The secret is to muddle your water additions. Take your mint leaves and crush them up a bit with a wooden spoon before throwing them in and you’ll get more bang for your flavor buck. When it comes to citrus, you’ll get better flavor if you remove the peel, since it adds a bitter taste to your water.

Time Yourself

Get creative and turn your water bottle into a timer. All you need to do is mark times on your bottle to remind you when you’ll like to have a certain amount of water down. For example, you can mark about a quarter of the bottle off for 9 AM, half of it for noon, and so on. That can help to keep you on track.

Don’t Chug, Sip

Sure, chugging a huge glass of water down all at once takes care of your water intake in hurry, but it’ll always leaving you feeling bloated. Don’t force yourself to down a bunch of water at once, but instead sip slowly throughout the day. That will make you feel much better.

There’s an App for That

Apps exist for just about everything, including drinking enough water! Find a hydration app for free and download it to your smartphone. It can help you remember to get your daily water intake and help you to know just how much you should be getting!

Drink Before Meals

It’s best to try to make drinking a glass of water before meals a habit. That will help you eat less when you sit down for a meal and make sure you get enough water during the day. It’s a good habit!
