We all know the importance of drinking water throughout the day and keeping ourselves hydrated, but many of us fail to stay on top of it for various reasons. At Hydratem8, we advocate the importance of staying hydrated but understand that it can be difficult, even though it shouldn’t be. So, we’ve put together our top tips to help you drink more water.
- Invest in a Hydratem8 Hydration Tracker Bottle
The premise behind our hydration tracker bottle is to help the drinker reach their daily hydration targets. Each bottle has our unique tracker printed on the back, enabling you to monitor your hydration throughout the day and give you easy to reach hourly water goals.
Keeping on top of your water intake has many health benefits, both physically and mentally. When you stay on top of your hydration, you’ll notice changes like:
- increased energy
- better sleep
- improved mood
- less headaches
- better skin, hair, and nails
That’s not all. By investing in a Hydratem8 bottle, you’re also benefitting the environment around you. Perhaps the biggest benefit is it’ll help you to cut down on your use of disposable plastic!
- Set alarms
Most of us are accustomed to using alarms to remind ourselves to do certain things, whether that’s get up at a specific time in the morning, make a phone call at a specific time, or remind you to feed the dog.
As well as your Hydratem8 bottle, you might also find it helpful to set alarms at specific times of the day to remind you to take a drink. Try to use a sound on the alarm that you enjoy because you don’t want your brain to start associating drinking with a noise you hate. Think about how much you hate the alarm that wakes you up in the morning, that’s what you want to avoid.
- Add flavours
If you’re the type of person that turns their nose up at plain water, then try adding some flavours to make the drink more inviting. There are all sorts of flavours you can add to water like fruit, vegetables, and herbs to enhance its flavour and make it more appealing.
If you love watermelon, try our watermelon cooler recipe or the cucumber and mint cooler. Both of these are great for your Hydratem8 bottle, but they are also perfect alcohol-free summer evening drinks to enjoy with friends.
- Never leave the house without your keys, phone, and water bottle
Treat your water bottle just as you do your phone, keep it nearby at all times. Whether you’re at the gym, at your work desk, or going out for a walk, you should keep your water bottle with you.
Another great place to keep your water bottle is on your bedside table when you are sleeping. If you wake up and feel sluggish, having water at hand can help to make you feel better.
- Snack on high water content foods
As well as drinking water, did you know that you can eat it, too? There are plenty of delicious foods available that can help to keep your water levels topped up.
- Cantaloupe melon
Drinking a healthy amount of water everyday is essential for good health. At Hydratem8, we believe the best way you can boost your water intake is by using one of our hydration tracker bottles. But there are also things you can do alongside this to help keep dehydration at bay.
