We are mid-way through 2014 and for many of us, our well-intentioned resolutions may be slipping by the wayside.
Everything seems completely doable when we’re planning and imaging the future especially when it comes to changes that we really, honestly want to make in our lives but sometimes, living gets in the way of well-intentioned goals.
I know, and you know that ensuring that you are properly hydrated is crucial to your health so I would like to help you keep your resolution to drink more water and here are my top 5 tips:
Infuse your water with berries, orange slices, lemons or cucumber slices to jazz things up. It looks pretty, tastes yummy and you get a little snack at the end!
Try dropping a few berries into an ice-cube tray next time you refill it and allow the cubes to freeze with the berries inside, now, you’ve taken the extra work out of infusing your water.
Fill a large jug or water bottle and keep it next to you so you don’t have to get up and refill it all the time. With water easily accessible you will be more likely to drink it up!
Challenge yourself to drink 16 ounces before lunch. Then again after lunch, and again after dinner. Do it and give yourself a mental high-five every time you finish!
The Biggest Loser’s Bob Harper has said that he always drinks a large glass of water before every meal. No exceptions. Not only does this help manage portions and keep hunger at bay but it helps ensure that he is getting adequate hydration throughout his day.
By stream I mean pee. Every time you go to the washroom, take a moment and have a look at your urine. Take note of the colour, if it’s a pale yellow, you’re doing great but if the colour is veering into sunny yellow go and have a drink. Make this a regular habit and you will soon be conscious of your hydration levels.
I hope that these 5 tips will help you to keep your resolutions and be as healthy and hydrated as you can be in 2014!
