Tips To Drink More Water
If you are often on the road, you should always take a water bottle with you.
Invest in a large metal water bottle and fill that before you leave for work in the morning. If you get the right brand, the water will stay cool all day.
Avoid plastic bottles (even reusable ones) because not only are they bad for the environment, they are bad for us too. As plastic heats up, it releases harmful particles into your water that you will end up drinking. Also, during work hours, you should always keep a water bottle near you that you can easily access and drink from regularly. If that is not an option, you must remember to drink lots of water during breaks. Keep a personal water bottle and make a habit of keeping it near you even when relaxing in front of the TV at home.
Ensure you maintain your hydration include making a habit of drinking water first thing in the morning because our bodies lose hydration in our sleep. Also, remember to drink some water before and during meals.
Some beverages like herbal tea can also help maintain hydration, but just water is always the best way.
Aim to drink two liters of water daily.
