Healthy Selves: Water - Increasing Intake


Following my last post on the importance and benefits of drinking plenty of water, I thought I’d share a post with a few tips on how to encourage yourself to drink more. 
I know I’m awful for drinking, I rarely even drink half of what I should be in a day so I’m going to be following these tips too!
  • Have a drink with every snack and mealThis will encourage you to drink more without even really realising it
  • Choose drinks you enjoy
    You're likely to drink more liquids if you like the way they taste. 
    Obviously plain water is the best thing to be drinking but if you need a little more flavour, add a drop of no added sugar squash, as it’s better than not drinking anything!
  • Eat more fruit and vegetables
    Their high water content will add to your hydration. About 20% of our fluid intake comes from foods
  • Have a bottle handyKeep a bottle of water on you at all times for instant hydration
  • Make goals
    Put an elastic band (or in most of our cases, a hairband) around your water bottle and move it down an inch or two every time you have a sip. Next time you take a drink, aim to drink down to where the band it, then move it down further ready for the next sip
  • AppsThere are loads of apps available for both Andriod and iPhone to remind you to drink and to record how much you’re drinking so you can always keep track
  • Buy a water filterFor those who don’t fancy tap water, instead of spending a fortune on bottled water, invest in a water filter and you can have bottled water at home for a fraction of the price

Hope these help! If you have any other tips I haven't mentioned, leave them below - sharing's caring and all that!!

Let me know how you all get on - I'll keep you posted on my progress!!

Love Lauren xx
