Regular water consumption during the day is essential to the functioning of our body. And it becomes all the more important with the arrival of the sunny days. Here are the best tips for integrating it into our daily lives.
Our body is more than 60% water. However, we regularly lose fluids through urine, breathing and sweating.
To make up for this lack, it is important to consume water at will, while limiting sweetened or sweetened drinks, as well as alcohol.
Try to drink without thirst, especially if it is hot day. Ideally, it is recommended to drink 1 to 1.5 litres of water per day.
Here are some tips to get there.
Set alarm clocks
If you are looking for a radical solution to drink more water, schedule regular waking times throughout the day. And if you need an even more rigorous system, use a marker to indicate the water levels and cut-off times on your bottle to find out how much water you should have consumed. This military method should prove its worth.
Use a straw
There is a reason why drinks in bars are almost always served with straws: you drink more, and faster. Apply the same tip to your water consumption with a reusable stainless steel or bamboo straw. You’ll be well hydrated before you know it!
Find the perfect bottle
The more you love your water bottle, the more likely you are to use it every day. Choose a stainless steel bottle, any size you want, with designs you like. This way, you are less likely to forget it.
Drink before you get thirsty
Thirst is not a good indicator of hydration status. When it is felt, the body has already lost too much water, and you may feel tired. Take a bottle of water everywhere with you and drink regularly to avoid this feeling.
Boost your drink
If you want to vary the pleasures, try to integrate different flavours into your water. Lemon, lime, lime, oranges, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, mint, basil, lavender, cucumber, watermelon….there are flavours for every taste!
High water foods such as cucumber, lettuce, celery, radish, watermelon, tomato, spinach, pepper, strawberry, broccoli, courgette and other raw fruits and vegetables can contribute to your daily water intake. Feel free to include them in your meals.
