Tips to Increase Your Water Intake

Updated: Aug 27, 2020

Do you struggle with your water intake?🥤⁣

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. A majority of Americans don’t get in the recommended 8 cups of water daily (if you’re active or living in a warmer climate, you need more but this is a baseline). Did you know that even being just 2% short of your water goal can mean you are technically dehydrated?😳⁣

And that can cause headaches, fatigue, mood swings, difficulty concentrating, irregularity…the list goes on and on! 😬⁣

And I’m guessing if you’re reading this, you probably care about your health and fitness goals - at least somewhat. Reaching your water goal daily can help increase your energy levels, improve cognitive function, helps detox your body naturally, helps regulate your mood & can help you lose weight.🥳⁣

Ok, so you might have known those things but still struggle with just actually getting your water down - what can you do? Try these tips:⁣

💧Use a straw! Bonus points for a reusable straw! I personally use a reusable cup with a straw and idk what it is about that dang straw but I can mindlessly suck down half a gallon in no time⁣

💧Use a larger bottle/cup. When I only have to refill my bottle 4 times a day (vs say 8-10) to get my gallon in, it just seems much more attainable to me!⁣

💧Get started earlier in the day. Make yourself drink at least 24 oz before your morning coffee or before eating breakfast! That way you won’t get stuck at the end of the night with a bunch of water to drink before bed.⁣

💧Add some water flavoring. If I get behind on my water goal, I like to add crystal light lemonade powder to my water! Idk what it is but I just want to chug that lemonade and it makes getting my water in so much easer.⁣

💧Get a new bottle or cute new cup! Like new workout clothes, there’s just something about a new bottle or cute cup that keeps you wanting to drink more water!

💧Give yourself some goals. Say you need to have 50 oz in by lunch time or 25 oz by 10 am. Breaking up your daily goal into smaller goals makes it much easier!⁣
