We all know that water is an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle and yet it often seems to be where a lot of us slip up the most. There are many reasons for why we aren’t managing this water necessity, but there are luckily also a few changes that we can make to improve our water intake with minimal effort.
1. Have it with you
There is something about the immediate availability of water that automatically leads to a higher water intake. It’s there so you drink it. It really is as simple as that. Whether it’s on your desk in a jug or you’re carrying it around in a bottle, the mere presence of water will make a difference to how much you consume in a day.
2. Make it taste better
Many of us don’t really love the taste of water. No problem! Add a couple of slices of lemon to your water. Or strawberries or oranges or even apple slices. The natural flavours might make all the difference to you. You could also add a splash of Herbal Aloe. Not only will this product help to replenish your electrolytes and boost your vitamin c but it is also calorie free.
3. Eat your water
You can ingest a high amount of water by simply adding more real foods to your diet. Watermelon, tomatoes, cucumbers and all sorts of other fruits and veggies have a very high percentage of water in them.
4. Drink more tea
As long as you aren’t adding copious amounts of sugar and other bad additives, a nice cup of herbal tea a few times a day is a great way to up your water content. Herbalife teas such as the Thermojetics Herbal Concentrate will give you the added benefit of aiding in weight loss and the NRG tea is great at easing mental fatigue and giving you a bit more energy.
