12 Hacks to Help You Drink More Water

  1. The Hydration Challenge: This is a game-changer, quite literally! Just take a sip of water every time you check your phone. With our frequent screen time, you'll be hydrated in no time. Bonus: it may even reduce your phone addiction!

  2. Infused Water: Plain water can be boring. But throw in some fruits, veggies, or herbs, and you've got a refreshing, flavorful drink that's hard to resist. Try combinations like cucumber-mint, lemon-basil, or strawberry-kiwi.

  3. Water Alarm: There are plenty of free apps out there that remind you to drink water. Or, you can simply set an alarm on your phone every hour as a reminder.

  4. Bottle it Up: Invest in a reusable water bottle. Having water within reach at all times can significantly increase your intake. Choose a bottle with measurement marks to keep track of how much you're drinking.

  5. Water-rich Foods: Many fruits and vegetables, like cucumbers, watermelons, or peaches, have high water content. Consuming these will help you stay hydrated while also giving your body essential vitamins and nutrients.

  6. Try a Water Tracker: Apps, smart bottles, or even DIY trackers can help you visualize your water intake and inspire you to reach your hydration goals.

  7. Sip Before You Eat: Often, our body confuses thirst with hunger. So before reaching for a snack, try drinking a glass of water.

  8. Hydrate with Hobbies: Love to read or binge-watch shows? Make it a rule to always have a glass of water by your side during these activities.

  9. Jazz Up Your Ice Cubes: Freeze fruits, herbs, or edible flowers into your ice cubes. As they melt, they'll add a subtle flavor to your water.

  10. Meal Pairing: Instead of sugary drinks, pair your meals with water. It's a healthier choice and helps you enjoy the flavors of your food better.

  11. Early Morning Routine: Start your day with a glass of water. This not only aids in detoxification but also kick-starts your metabolism.

  12. Reward Yourself: Set hydration goals and once you achieve them, reward yourself. It could be anything from an extra episode of your favorite show to a sweet treat.
