Tips to Drink More Water

Tips to drink more water:
  1. Find a favorite reuseable water bottle. If you picked it out, and love it then you'll be more likely to drink from it. I have a pink hydroflask and it has helped me drink more water. 
  2. Add flavor. This can be either fruits, powders or flavored. If you add lemon and cucember it will help with digestion. My favorite is ON Amino Energy. 
  3. Drink before every meal. Our bodies can't tell between thirst and hunger. If hungry, try drinking at least 8oz of water. Still want food eat. Also while waiting for food drink water. You won't eat as much. 
  4. Invest in a filter. I am self proclaimed water snob. I'm very particular about my water. (You can not convince me all water is the same.)
  5. Never have an empty bottle or class. Anytime my water is almost gone I fill it up. If it's empty I am more likely grab a soda. 
  6. Add ice. It's actually better for your body to have warm water because it takes more work for your body, but I have to have ICE COLD water. 
  7. Drink half your body in ounces every day. If you weigh 200 pounds, try to drink 100 ounces of water. 
  8. Set reminders. I have a client who sets alarms several times throughout the day. When the alarm goes off they'll finish their drink, and refill it. Some alarms are at time they normally would eat a snack, but have replaced it with drinking water. 
  9. Use an app. This will help you keep track of your water intake.  
  10. Drink from a straw. You typically drink water from straw than having to open your bottle every time. 
What tips are you going to implement?
