Do You Drink Enough Water?

By Donna Stark

If you express to your doctor how you have been dealing with certain general health problems, such as headaches, indigestion, and heartburn, you will almost always get the "Are you drinking enough water?" question. And for good reason too, as water plays such a huge role in your overall health and wellness. From the very top of your head to the tips of your toes, water is one of the main things that keep your body healthy. Unfortunately though, many people find that drinking the recommended amount of water is hard to do and, if you are anything like them, you are probably walking around more dehydrated than you think. But there is no reason to panic yet! Take a look at the following suggestions on how you can include more water in your daily lifestyle.

Add Fun Flavors

Sometimes the only thing stopping us from drinking water isn't the flavor, but rather the lack thereof. A great way to start including more water into your diet is to add fruits and vegetables to your pitcher. With endless possibilities and choices of what you can add to your water, consuming a healthy amount will only come naturally.

Drink Water Between Meals

It sounds simple, right? Drinking a glass of water in between meals and snacks is a great way to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day, but that's not all! Drinking water between meals can help your body absorb nutrients better and digest your food easier. Also, by creating a routine of drinking water, you are more likely to establish it as a lifelong habit.

Make More Soups For Dinner

You certainly don't need cold, snowy weather or a high fever and runny nose to enjoy a hot bowl of soup! Soup is a perfect option for every month of the year. In addition to keeping you hydrated, soup can also provide tons of vitamins and nutrients.

Increase Fruit Intake

Having plenty of fruit in the house ready to snack on is one of the best decisions you can make for your overall health and wellness. Rich in water, fruit such as watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, and peaches can help to rehydrate you as well as provide your body with the vitamins it needs to keep going.

More Water, Better Health

More water equates to better health and with some simple changes to your daily routine, it's easy to start increasing your intake. Wouldn't it be great when the next time your doctor asks the "Are you drinking enough water?" question, you can respond with a resounding "Yes!"?
