These are my tips on how to drink more water because water is good for you!
#1. DRINK BETTER TASTING WATER
- We use a Berkey Water Filter for all the reasons I list here in this post. Pure, clean water tastes better and is so much better for your health in the long run.
- Also, water tastes better NOT in plastic. Read my post on removing plastic from your home here.
#2. USE A STRAW
I don’t know why it works but it does! No more sipping. Slurp slurp your water friends.
- I love these cups for the house.
- And these bottles for my kids to take out and about.
- These stainless bottles for me out and about – straw of course
- These are my stainless steel straws for the house.
#3. MAKE IT COLD – OR WARM.
I prefer cold water. But not too cold or it freezes my mouth and throat and I have to stop drinking. But I have a temperature that I like best so I try to keep my water at that temperature.
I also recently earned a YETI Tumbler RAMBLER and I LOVE IT!!!!
#4. GET BIGGER CUPS
We are busy. We don’t have time to fill up our cup a million times a day. I know when I reach for my cup, if it’s full I will drink a ton…..or as much as I have time to gulp.
But if it’s empty, chances are someone will need something or I won’t get a chance to fill it up and I’ll forget to drink water. And I’ve watched my kids do the same thing.
Get the biggest cup or bottle or tumbler you can find and you can manage. This goes for your kids also.
#5. ADD ESSENTIAL OILS
Do you know how I thought of this post? After adding orange essential oil to my water and realizing I was going to the pee more often than usual. Wait a minute? I’m drinking a LOT more water than I used to.
Why did I drink more water when I added orange essential oil to my water. I love it sooo sooo much. It takes amazing so I drink more. And, it’s only full of good antioxidants. Nothing artificial. It’s actually breaking down the bad stuff and helping me get it out.
HOW TO DRINK MORE WATER WHEN YOU DON’T LIKE IT.
IS YOUR WATER SAFE?
We use a Berkey Water filter to purify our drinking water. We started using it in 2013 when I had some miscarriages and started looking to clean up the toxins in our environment…water being one of them. The Berkey removes all the bad stuff and keeps the good stuff. It also saves money in the long run because you replace the filters every hundred years or so….no seriously. It’s awesome.
I started to get paranoid about using the ice out of our ice maker, so I bought a countertop ice maker and started putting my safe Berkey water in there so that even our ice is safe! I’m so happy!
