Are you drinking enough water?

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Do you drink enough water?  I struggle to drink my 8 recommended cups each day. It’s also easy to lose count on how many you have had.  I have tried otehr methods like tallying it on the fridge but it just doens’t seem to work.  Now, I use this great way to encourage myself to drink more water:

  1. Fill your water bottle up
  2. Wrap 7 hair ties or rubber bands around the bottle
  3. Remove a hair tie each time you refill your bottle (I have a Tupperware drink bottle, I put my hairties into the base)
  4. By the end of the day you need to have removed all hairties.

Tips to improve your water intake:

  • Have a glass of water after you wake up.
  • Have a glass of water with each meal during the day, breakfast, lunch and dinner and snacks.
  • When you are craving something sweet instead have a drink of water.
  • Big drink of water on every hour
  • Try adding ice to your water, cold water tastes better.
  • Add some lemon or lime to enhace the taste
  • Have a glass of water before a can of softdrink

Do you have any great tips and ideas to improve water intake?
