WATER! We All know we need to drink more! Anybody and everybody will tell you the benefits of water. However, you will find many people that are not big water drinkers! I admit I am not in love with water. I have started drinking more and it’s now something I crave. It took time! Some days are better than others still today. Either way, the point is clear; water does wonders for your body, and your brain. Water is well known to cleanse your body of harmful chemicals through your intestines and also throughout your urine tract. Without proper water intake, our bodies break down very quickly, in a matter of days. Without food, however, some people can live for a week or two. That just shows how important water is to our bodies. Water is also the number one thing you hear to drink when you’re trying to lose weight!
Here are 5 quick tips for taking in more water that have helped me.
1. Always have Cold water available.
I like to buy the bottles of water and keep them in the fridge. They are easy to grab and great to carry around during the day.
Whenever I am on the computer, watching TV, or just laying down I keep either bottle or big cup beside me the whole time. I take a lot of little sips until it’s gone. A great way of making sure you drink more water is to make sure it is easily accessible and something that you see when you open the fridge. It’s like right there screaming GRAB ME!
2. Have a glass a water as soon as you wake up!
Drinking water is the first thing you should do in the morning. It will not only avoid dehydration, but it also serves as a stimulant & lubricant for the digestive juices in your body. Of course, Many have to have that morning cup of tea or coffee before anything , and if this is you just make sure you have water afterwards.
3. Don’t forget the lemon!
If your want to add a little taste to plan water lemon does the trick! It’s also good for you! Lemons offer unique natural cleansing and detoxifying properties with no unnecessary calories. Lemon water also acts as blood sugar stabilizer that keeps metabolism up and weight loss moving along. So don’t pass on those lemons!
4. Drinking water before each meal
This is a great way to get your extra water in. It has also been shown to help promote weight loss because water makes people feel fuller, inducing us to eat less food.
5. Still not able to get your entire water intake in for the day? Then Feed yourself with fresh fruit and vegetables that bear high water content. Foods that come under these categories – tomatoes, watermelons, cantaloupe, kiwi, grapes – you get the drift. Each of those fresh and flavorsome juicy fruits and veggies are healthy and you need them anyways! These items constitute about 90 to 95% water, so you’ll be able to eat plenty of these without feeling heavy and without worrying about gaining!
