We all know it’s important to drink a lot of water. It has so many beauty and health benefits that it’s hard to avoid. I really notice that my skin is so much better on days when I drink a lot. Here are some some tips to drink more.

Health benefits of drinking water

  1. Keep your body working
    Water is very important to actually keep your body working because our body is for 60% water. Some examples are that it helps with keeping our body temperature on a good level and it helps with digestion.
  2. Weight loss
    Most drinks contain a lot of sugar. Water doesn’t directly have effect on weight loss but replacing those bad drinks with it can really help. When you drink a lot you will also often eat less.
  3. Beautiful Skin
    When you don’t drink enough your skin will look more dry and wrinkled.

A while ago the story of Sarah Smith showed up on the internet. Sarah Smith is a woman in her 40’s. She tested what would happen if she would triple the amount of water she normally drinks. To test it she drank 3 liters of water every day for a month and here are the results. Her face looks so much younger!

Tips to drink more water

  1. Have a drink with every meal
    This way the food you eat will be washed away easily and you will eat less.
  2. Carry a bottle or cup with you
    This way you will easily grab it instead of buying a soda, this can also save you a lot of money. When at home I love to keep a big cup with me like in the photo above, that one I got from H&M.
  3. Eat fruit and vegetables
    Fruit and vegetables contain a lot of water and who doesn’t like fruit? Did you know that about 20% of our water intake is from fruit if you eat it twice a day?
  4. Eat some spicy food
    After spicy food most people drink more.
  5. Drink some tea
    I personally love tea and like it way more so I drink a lot of tea every day.
  6. Make some popsicles
    Who doesn’t love popsicles in the summer? Why not make your own by adding water and fruit like this recipe.
  7. Add some fruit
    Adding some fruit will make it way more tasty. Look below to get more information.
  8. Set a daily goal
    If your having a lot of trouble drinking enough you can set a daily goal. There are a lot of apps that you can use to register how much you drink. One of those is Plant Nanny that I showed below.

Water with fruit?

You can add some fruit to your bottle to make it a little more tasteful. This is easier if you have a bottle that has a container for fruit or if you have a bottle with a big bottle opening so you can easily take the fruit out after. You can use all kinds of fruit from strawberry’s to lemon.

If you want some variation, try adding some mint. The Blogilates site has a lot of yummy fruit water recipes.

Keep track of your intake

    I drink way too less water because I’m way too busy and have my head wrapped around everything but that I’m actually thirsty or hungry… not really a good thing but really hard to get rid of.
    I usually notice it, when it’s already too late and my body punishes me with headaches and even dryer skin that even rips open on really bad days…
    I should really try and care more for my water input… it got better already but I guess I still have a long way to go…

      I have that on some days to. You could also try to set an alarm or reminder on your phone or laptop to drink water. Maybe that helps?
