Water is important - very important. The biggest part of our body is made up of water and even though we know this is true, we often forget to take care of something important like this. I wanted to introduce a new category to my blog: 'Helping With Habits', where I want to give you some tips and tricks on how to maintain a good lifestyle, or change into having one. I hope you like this first edition!
Add a flavor
Adding a flavor to water makes it so much easier to drink loads! I usually slice up some lemons and add them to a huge jar of water. This tastes like a less sugary and healthier version of our regular lemonade and I really like drinking it.
Use your phone
There's an app for everything, even for your water intake! Waterlogged is the name, check it out.
If you don't really like using apps, set a few alarms on your phone and when it goes off, drink a glass of water.
Carry it around
Carrying water around gives you the opportunity to drink water when you're either thirsty or just bored.
Just order water
When you're going to a restaurant, ordering a glass of wine is easy and delicious - it can be expensive though. To save some money and drink some more water, skip the wine and go for the water.
Make it a habit
Drink when you wake up - drink before you eat - drink before you go to bed. If you decide to make this a habit, your body will get thirsty whenever you don't follow your usual scheme so this will automatically enhance your water intake!
Invest in a cool water bottle..
..and actually use it.
Use a straw
I personally prefer drinking beverages from a straw because it's easier and my lipstick doesn't get messed up. Drinking from a straw goes quicker as well, so you'll consume more water in a shorter period of time.
Tea is water as well
Just with an extra flavor. Especially green tea is a great substitute for when you're thirsty for something else.
I hope you liked this first edition of 'Helping With Habits'! Let me know if you have any suggestions for this new category. Much love, Sjoukje! X
