Staying hydrated is the quickest and cheapest way to sort out your skin, boost your energy levels and prevent yourself over eating. So why do we find it so hard to get enough of the good stuff?
Sadly, like most things that benefit us, water is not the most exciting thing in the world and it often gets shunned for tastier options, or nothing at all. With that in mind, here are three easy ways to get yourself drinking more water every day.
Buy a bottle
Invest in something shiny …or plasticy, or metallic, just as long as it’s pretty and you’re going to want to show it off on your desk every day – and, more importantly, use it! Just like buying new gym kit makes you want to exercise (as much as anything could ever make you want to exercise), buying a new water bottle will make you want to drink more water. I love my Bobble Bottle, which won’t break the bank or your back, as it’s light enough to carry around everywhere with you.
Give your life some lemons
Nothing can replace the comfort of a hot drink in the office, so why not switch up your tea for something a little more hydrating? Keep a fresh lemon in the office and drop a slice into a mug of hot water as an alternative to a brew. Not only will it up your water intake it will also preserve your pearly whites, as tea is a terrible source of teeth staining. Two beauty birds with one stone!
Get in to good habits
Set yourself a target and stick to it, be it one extra glass or one extra bottle of water a day.If you have a goal then you can measure your progress and stay motivated. Soon you’ll start seeing results and it will be easy to keep your good habits going.
