5 Ways That Will Make It Easier To Drink More Water

Most of us don’t drink enough water. The problem is that we don’t really feel thirsty until we’re already mildly dehydrated, and by then it’s too late — we have to wait for the body to rehydrate.

Toxins are stored in fat cells and the lymphatic system, so if you’re not adequately hydrated those toxins can build up and confuse your mind & body into craving food. Not only will drinking more water help you burn more calories, it will also make you less hungry in general, so drinking water before meals can help you eat less!

Here are some simple ways to drink more water:

1. Keep a Water Bottle on Your Desk at Work

Drinking water is a lot easier when it’s handy. Keep your water bottle on your desk at work and refill it several times a day. It’s also helpful to put a reminder on your phone or computer calendar to remind yourself to drink water throughout the day.

2. Use a Water Filter in Your Kitchen

If the tap in your kitchen isn’t hooked up to a filter or an in-line pitcher with a filter, this is probably going to be the number one thing that you can do to change your drinking habits for the better!

3. Enhance Taste

Put some fruit into your water for a special treat. Or try adding lemon slices or cucumber slices for extra flavor.

4. Drink before you’re thirsty.

When you feel thirsty, your body has been suffering from dehydration for hours and it’s too late to prevent health problems. Instead, aim to drink enough water during the day to avoid feeling thirsty in the first place.

5. Put a reminder in your phone or on a sticky note.

If you don’t make it part of your routine, it can be easy to forget to keep up with your daily water intake goals. Set reminders on your phone or put a “reminder” on a sticky note so you have constant reminders throughout the day (like when you need to take medication).
