10 Tips To Incorporate Water Into Your Day

Water BottleHow will I ever drink that much water every day?  The basic 8-(8 ounce) water rule may sound unrealistic but it really is quite easy and this goal can be met with these tips:
  1. Start early: have a glass of water first thing in the morning when you wake up.
  2. Add lemon juice and natural sweetener to a cup of hot water.
  3. Drink a glass of water with your meals.
  4. Carry a water bottle with you everywhere.
  5. Drink through a straw: this will make drinking water more fun and enjoyable!
  6. Create cues: add water into your daily routines, make it a habit to always drink a glass of water after going to the restroom or in between your favorite T.V. shows.
  7. Add citrus ice cubes to your water: squeeze your favorite citrus fruit (lemon, lime, orange) into ice cube trays before freezing to give your water a refreshing twist.
  8. Keep water close: make sure you have a cup or water bottle on your desk, in your car, at your computer, next to the couch, etc so it’s always easy to take a sip.
  9. Eat water-rich foods: many fruits and vegetables like lettuce, tomatoes, watermelon, peaches, oranges, and grapes are full of water.
  10. Keep track of how much water you drink throughout the day.
