When it comes to drinking we all know that water is an integral part of our daily lives, it keeps us hydrated, makes up two thirds of our bodies and doesn’t have the nasty additives that fizzy drinks can have. I find out from Aqua Pura just their top 10 ways of making drinking water our top priority
Fruit slices give a refreshing, naturally fruity taste, meaning lemon and lime wedges add a great citrus twist that makes water more appealing.
Keep a water diary
Keeping a diary of how much water is consumed per 24-hour period helps by tracking your daily intake, and it highlights how little you are drinking in comparison to the daily recommended amount.
Make a swap
Get everyone involved
Relive your childhood
Embrace the child from within and add vibrant, colourful straws to water bottles. You’re likely to sip more when using a straw than just sipping water.
Drink with meals
Drink water before and after every meal, it’s a great way to increase water consumption as part of your daily routine.
Bring a bottle of water everywhere. Having a bottle of water in your handbag, car, back-pack and placed beside the bed can increase water consumption; it also enables you to keep a track of how much you’re drinking.
Make gradual changes
If you love fizzy drinks, try to gradually cut down by drinking water for half of all your drinks, then eventually one fizzy drink per day, and then one per week. Once you start cutting down, your taste buds will change and eventually you won’t need the same sweetness.
Add some sparkle to the day with sparkling water, which has all the same benefits, but a little more fizz.
