Keeping Healthy

How I Stay Hydrated

Part of my new years goals was to drink a lot more water. (you can find the full post here) I have been doing this now for around a week and feel as if I am doing really well! I am drinking more than 2000ml a day and its not feeling like a massive task! I have so much more energy and my skin is already looking thankful for the extra water intake.

For today’s post, I thought I would share with you how I have increased my water intake. its been super easy to make a few easy changes to my lifestyle and I am already loving the benefits!

Tip Number One:

Drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up. This helped remind me every morning that I need to drink more water throughout the day. It sounds so simple but this really helped motivate and encourage me. “Start as you mean to go on” I think the saying goes.

Tip Number Two:

Drink from a water bottle. While I would love an Hydratem8 I cant justify that amount of26610807_10208659931974334_499132572_o.jpg money on a water bottle, although I am likely to treat myself to it in the next coming months! I currently have a 750ml purple water bottle that I brought for around £2.99 unfortunately I cant remember where I got it from but it does the job perfectly. I find I am so much more motivated to drink more water if I have it on hand to drink from throughout the day. keeping the water bottle on me always helps to remind me to drink more water, I try and drink two of these water bottles a day, it really is so rewarding when you finish a bottle and I can re fill it up.

Tip Number Three:

This is super motivating, I currently use the water tracker on my fitbit app. There are so many apps for water tracking I am sure you can find one that suits you. Aiming for a water intake goal and tracking your water intake to achieve the goal can also be super satisfying, I find it is like ticking off something from a to do list!

Tip Number Four:

Drink a glass of water before each meal. Not only will this help fill you up quicker and prevent you over eating, its also a perfect way of keeping hydrated. I always found that after I had eaten a meal I felt super thirsty now I do not have that horrible dry mouth feeling after my food. Drinking a glass of water before each meal has been a habit I have found to get into really easily.

I am really hoping you have found this little post helpful. I am no where near an expert but these are just the things that I have been doing and have been working for me!

Cheerio For Now,

Fern xx
