How to Drink More Water Without Thinking About It

By Genevieve Cunningham

Water. We need it in order to be healthy and live. And if you’re the average American, chances are really good that you need to drink more. In our society, drinking sodas and flavored teas and energy drinks is practically the norm. But when the body doesn’t get enough water, serious health problems can occur. So how do we give up the flavor for better health? It sounds easy, but many people have trouble making the switch. If you’re ready to get serious about your health by drinking more water, take a look at these ways to drink more with very little thought or effort involved.

Constantly Carry a Water Bottle

This will only be a chore in the very beginning. At first, you’ll have to put some thought into taking and filling up your water bottle throughout the day. But it won’t take long until your water bottle is another staple accessory. If you don’t have it, you’ll feel lost. The best way to make this a habit is to get a water bottle that really suits your lifestyle. If you’re constantly in the car, buy a to-go cup. If you’re active, buy a water bottle that won’t spill. If you’re at a desk, opt for one with a top and a straw. The more of a habit you can make this, the easier it will be to keep it up and increase your water intake.

Don't Keep Anything Else in the House

One of the best ways to drink more water is by simply not buying anything else. If it’s not in your kitchen, you’re a lot less likely to drink it. It’s possible that you’ll get out of bed, change your clothes, and hit up the nearest convenience store in the middle of the night. But it’s a lot more probable that you’ll just fill up your glass with water. If you really want to increase the amount of water your drink, don’t give yourself another option.

Eat Water-Filled Foods

Drinking water isn’t the only way to get more. It’s also possible to add water to your diet through food. If you’re having a hard time drinking water, fill up your kitchen with cucumber, celery, watermelon, strawberries, and other foods with a high water content. This way, you’ll be able to get more water into your body and life, but you won’t really have to think about it beyond your grocery list.

Getting enough water is definitely important for good health. But it can be tough to get more, especially when you’re used to drinks with flavor. Make it a priority, and use these tips to get a little more in your diet. With more water, you may find better health, improved body function, and feeling of wellness from here on out.
