We all know how important it is to drink plenty of water, right? It keeps all of your body's systems working in tip top shape and makes your skin look more youthful and plump as an added bonus. I have made drinking more water an important goal in my daily routine and there is one simple hack that has made it easier for me to do. Buy yourself a cute tumbler or water bottle. At home I prefer to use a tumbler with a lid and straw, but if I am on the go or at work, I like to use a bottle with a screw-top. Here are some super cute options that would definitely motivate me to drink my H2O.
Here is the tumbler I am using today, and as you can see I am ready for my third refill. Even though St. Louis easily has the best water, I still prefer the taste of it filtered. I used to use a Brita pitcher, but found that I would dread having to refill it every day or more. I decided to purchase this Ultramax version which I typically have to refill every 2-3 days. You can get your own Brita system HERE.
BUT HOW MUCH WATER AM I SUPPOSED TO DRINK?! At minimum, you should drink about half your weight in ounces each day, and I know for some people they find it difficult to even accomplish that. Ideally, you should drink about 2/3 of your weight. For someone who is 125 lbs, they should be consuming about 84 oz each day.
If you are someone who does not enjoy the taste of water, try adding fruit. I wrote a blog about 2 years ago about the benefits of drinking lemon water. You can check it out here: www.xofancy.com/blog/benefits-of-drinking-lemon-water
I'm curious to know if you have any hacks that help you consume your water for the day. Share them below!
