5 Easy Ways to Drink Enough Water

Drinking enough water isn’t always easy. You can get busy at work, you might leave your water bottle at home or perhaps you just don’t like water! But H20 is vital for your body and it’s important for your wellbeing and energy to drink water consistently during the day.

Why?

Water regulates your internal body temperature, carries nutrients to your cells and organs and carries away toxins while also lubricating your joints and producing adequate saliva. We’re even 60% made up of water! However, we lose water during the day through our skin, our sweat, our excretions and even when we breathe. It’s important to replace that water loss as we can become dehydrated, which can lead to decreased kidney function, unbalanced electrolytes and other health issues. Only about 20% of our daily fluid intake comes from food though so the rest has to come from aqua. That’s why Feel Electric has brought you 5 Easy Ways to Drink Enough Water.

1. Know How Much Water You Should Drink

Staying hydrated is a lot easier when you know how much water you should be drinking. In general to keep your thirst quenched adult females should drink about 2 litres of water a day while adult males should try for 2.5 litres. This is a guideline so it does vary from person to person. Your ideal water consumption could increase depending on your body size, how much you sweat, how much you exercise, or the amount of protein or sodium that you take in through food. If you set a daily hydration goal that will make it a lot easier to know when you need to reach for your water bottle and maintain this healthy H20 habit.

2. Water Doesn’t Have to Be Boring

You aren’t restricted to just plain old water, you could make your daily hydration more fun with a bit of preparation. Try sparkling water or add calorie-free flavours like fruit or vegetable infusions to your H20. Add cucumber, lemon, berries or mint to a water jug and leave in the fridge to infuse overnight. Enjoy your flavoured aqua the next day. Drinking water is important for your health but it can be fun too!

3. Your Own Water Bottle for Easy Hydration

Get a good refillable water bottle and you make the habit of staying hydrated so much easier. A water bottle is a brilliant visual reminder to keep drinking right through the day. If you get a water bottle that has marked measurements you can easily track your water drinking progress. Try refilling your water bottle at least once a day and you’ll be on track to proper healthy hydration.

4. Set a Water Alarm

It’s easy to lose track of how much water you’ve drunk when we’re busy at home or in work. But if you schedule your water intake with a set alarm you won’t forget to keep yourself hydrated. Try setting an alarm on your phone or on a smart device like Alexa or Google to remind you to drink water every few hours. Set your alarm to make a habit of staying hydrated and soon you’ll be like a duck to water!

5. Link Daily Events to Hydration

Make it easier on yourself and associate things you do every day with drinking more water. For example, quench your thirst first thing in the morning with a nice cool glass of your flavoured water. You start your hydration habit straight away and as an added bonus your metabolism wakes up and you get a burst of energy. Drink a glass of water before every meal too and you’re making fantastic progress towards your daily hydration goal. You’ll also digest better and feel fuller quicker so you won’t want to eat as much as if you were thirsty. See how good drinking water is for your health!
