how to drink more water

Our body is made up of between 50% – 65% of water so we need to ensure we stay hydrated.

Drinking water flushes out waste and toxins, improves skin complexion and aids smooth digestion. It also lubricates the joints and regulates body temperature.

Some people find even drinking the recommended eight glasses can prove a challenge, so here’s ten simple ways to drink more.

 #1 Added Flavour

Naturally flavour your water with cucumber or mint, limes or lemons. This makes it more interesting if you find water bland.

#2 On The Go

Carry a 1.5 litre bottle around with you and take regular sips throughout the day.

Remember though, once you’re thirsty, you are already dehydrated.

#6 First Thing

#7 Eat It

Drink a glass of water before you eat each meal. You won't overeat then as you'll feel a little fuller. 


#9 Dining Out

When at a restaurant, make a rule to only order water. You’ll notice a smaller bill and a smaller waistline.


#10 Short Straw

Drinking through a straw helps you consume more and keeps your lipstick on!
