How to drink more water throughout the day without stress
Beautiful nails, skin, and soft silky hydrated hair! Tell me what woman doesn’t want this?
I can speak from personal experience in saying that, as the years go by our skin and hair get drier. Our body is made up of 75% water, which means drinking water has to be a priority.
A while ago, I wrote about why drinking water is so important for our bodies and the reality is most of us don’t always drink the recommended amounts of water a day, which is a minimum of 1 ½ liters per day. That’s why I am going to share some tips so that together we can reach our goal of drinking the right amounts of water for our body to function properly.
Water alone is always the best thing, but there are other things that can also help us increase our water intake: Fruits that have a large percentage of water such as watermelon, melon, strawberry, pineapple, orange, and vegetables like radish, tomato, cauliflower, and carrots among others are great choices. Just like cooked legumes, broths and soups.
In addition to that you should drink one cup of water (approximately 250ml):
After waking up
30 minutes before lunch and dinner
1 hour after lunch and dinner
In the evening
You should drink 8 glasses of water per day.
If drinking water alone is hard for you then try drinking herbal teas. At lunch you can make lemonade without adding too much sugar and if possible try to use sweeteners instead.
Flavored water: You can add some flavor to your water by adding a few slices of citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons or a few pieces of other fruits like strawberries, blueberries or kiwi add ice and then enjoy.
Apps: There’s no excuses, “I FORGOT” , you can set an alarm in your cell phone so that you remember to hydrate your body all the time. Or use an app that reminds you to drink water like “Water your body ” or ” Drink-O-matic “. It’ll be a great way to see your progress throughout the day and week.
The challenge is to drink 1½ liters of water every day. Who’s in?
Until next week!
