15 Tips that Make Drinking More Water Easy!

We all know the great benefits of drinking water. It helps us boost our metabolism, suppresses appetite,
helps hydrate the body and lose weight, and reduces calorie intake while burning more calories.
But let’s face it, most of us don’t like drinking water.
We know we have to, we know its many benefits, but we find it really hard to increase our water intake.
Here are some tips that will make you drink more water easily – at the office, while traveling, at the gym, and even home.
1. Add some flavor to it. Some natural orange, lemon or lime juice can make that boring water taste completely different, helping you drink more.
Just have a juicer handy, add a few drops to your bottle and you’re set!Mix and match to make a cocktail out of your water.
2. Add herbs to enhance the flavor. Mix lemon, cucumber and mint to make it tastier. Or mix spearmint, fresh ginger, cucumber and lemon to make a more ‘serious’ drink out of it. Finally, spice it up with cinnamon sticks, which has its own health benefits. These combinations are not only healthy but also low in calories and soothing.
3. Use an application. Today we all use apps – for counting calories or steps, to make appointment and what not. So what’s easier than using an app to drink water?
Set a goal of the amount of water you need to drink, set reminders and deadlines to drink certain amounts by certain times throughout the day, and keep track of your water consumption. But make sure your goals are achievable and realistic!
4. Buy a bottle of water and always carry it with you. Having a bottle handy at all times will help you stay hydrated. And when it empties, refill it with water from a water cooler,
which is really easy to do at work or in the gym. You can buy one of those fun, colorful bottles, but make sure you’ll use it. When you’re home, just fill it and put it in the fridge.
