Easy ways to drink more water

 Start your day with a tall glass of water.

As soon as I wake up, I go into the kitchen and pour myself a large, cold glass of water. Now that this is part of my everyday routine, I wake up super thirsty and needing that glass of H2O. I start drinking it as soon as I get out of bed and continue while as I’m scheduling social media posts, answering emails, and reading the news {yes, I’m probably the only person who still enjoys reading the news as opposed to watching it on tv}.

Drink a cup of warm water with lemon.

This is new to my water drinking routine, and I’m so glad I started it. As I mentioned before, I strongly dislike the taste of water. If I force myself to drink it, I will, but if I add a bit of lemon it’s much more enjoyable. I like drinking warm water with lemon once I get to work. I’ll add a sliver of lemon to the water and refill my mug at least 2-3 times throughout the morning. Warm water with lemon has so many benefits including reducing inflammation, flushing out toxins, aiding in digestion, and balancing pH levels. Let’s not forget that lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient that protects against immune system deficiencies.

Invest in a water bottle that you love.

I’m a very visual person. If I don’t like the way something looks, I won’t use it. I’m like that with a lot of things in my life, especially my water bottles. For whatever reason, if I have a pretty water bottle, I’m more likely to use it and show it off!

Document your progress.

I’m addicted to apps. I’m not kidding. Every few days I browse around the App Store and see if there’s anything new worth downloading. I have apps for basically every aspect of my life, so documenting my water intake was a no brainer. Some of my favorites include Waterlogged, WaterMinder and Daily Water Free.

End your night with a cup of herbal tea.

I love drinking herbal tea at night, especially chamomile. Chamomile tea can help with a lot of different ailments including insomnia, anxiety and panic attacks and stomach problems. There’s something so relaxing about siting on the couch after a long day, turning on Netflix or the DVR, and drinking a hot cup of tea.
