We have come to a point where we need reminders to drink more water because there are just so many things to do that we forget the most important ones. The problem is that it is inconvenient to get up and get a drink of water and incredibly dull. But here are easy and innovative ways to help you increase your water level intake with minimum effort and the least investment of time and money.
Make It Better
We know our vices – we never forget a nice beverage. So turn that vice to use and start putting in some fruit pieces of mint leaves in the water. Making it tastier will always encourage you to have more of something.
Keep Water In Your Sights
Have a pitcher full of water or a bottle filled near your work station and bed. Keep a few filled bottles in all the places you sit every day. For example, if you sit in front of the TV a lot, then place a water bottle on the coffee table in front of you.
Use Bottles With Intake Levels
Tracking your water consumption and increasing it gradually is the best way to ensure that this habit sticks. Measure out the bottles you use or buy a bottle with marked intake levels to know how much you drink daily.
We have all tried downloading an app that gives you reminders to drink water, and what we do is dismiss the notification each time and get back to what we were doing. It is time to try again, this time but with a water bottle nearby. We dismiss the reminder because we don’t feel like getting up right then. So don’t. Just grab a bottle before you sit down somewhere so you can keep sipping on it. If you get up to go to another room for a while, take your bottle with you. It will take a few days, but it will soon become a habit.
If you are always traveling, drinking water regularly is a problem on another level for you. First, the water doesn’t taste the same everywhere. Secondly, buying countless bottles of water and just throwing them away is not suitable for the environment. If you are camping, then water is challenging to come by sometimes too. Here is a solution for all three problems – get a bottle that has a filtration system. It is not even expensive in the long run. You can fill it up with tap water or water from streams, rivers, seas, and it will just give you water after filtering it properly. They are available on Amazon at affordable prices. If you have a long commute from and to work, you should also invest in this so you can drink water from anywhere without buying water bottles.
Smart Water Bottles
You can get water bottles connected to your phone and set reminders to drink as well. When it is time for you to drink, it will start glowing. So if you keep the habit of having a water bottle nearby, you won’t need notification reminders, the bottle will remind you and it will look cool in your office as well. Impress your clients and colleagues with this bottle and take care of your health at the same time.
