Springtime Tips to Drink More Water

Posted by in Health, Nutrition

Spring is here!

With the temperatures rising make sure you’re getting your daily doses of water. Here are some tips to help you drink more water!

MORNING CUP: Drink a glass as soon as you wake up.

DRINK BEFORE EACH MEAL: Drink a glass 30 minutes before every meal. Not only will you stay hydrated but you’ll eat less too!

CUT CAFFEINE: Caffeine can affect the body’s water balance. By cutting caffeinated beverages you will help your body stay hydrated.

EAT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES: Remember that fruits and vegetables contain a lot of water! Consuming your daily dose will help and improve the body’s water balance.

FLAVOR IT: Add a lemon wedge or a slice of cucumber to enhance the water’s flavor.

BOTTLE IT: Carry around bottled water. By having water near and around you, you’d unconsciously drink more water. You’ll save time, money and the environment in using a re-useable water bottle. Finding a fun bottle can also encourage you to drink more water!

THIS WEEK’S TIP
