Hydration Hacks: 8 Creative Ways to Drink More Water Throughout the Day
Are you struggling to have your 8 glasses of water every day? We are all in the same boat when it comes to hydration. Our body is 60% water, and it needs about 2–2.5 liters of water every day to function properly. Despite this fact, we tend to procrastinate drinking water until we completely forget about it. And let’s be honest, water reminder apps are of no use. People who have suffered from dehydration or kidney stones know how dreadful poor hydration can be.
But fret not! We're here to spill the aqua beans on how to make staying hydrated not only a breeze but also a delightful adventure. From fruity infusions that turn your water into a tropical paradise to healthy fizzy drinks, we've got your thirst-quenching needs covered. So, grab your water bottle, your curiosity, and a sprinkle of excitement because, by the end of this article, you'll be sipping and savoring your way to hydration heaven!
Remember: Use these hacks to complete your 8 glasses throughout the day; don’t have more than a glass of water at a time. Having too much water at a time stresses your kidneys. This behavior is called water toxicity and can affect your health seriously.
Make it FizzyH2O…Sigh! Can it be any more boring? How about a fizzy, bubbly, and flavorful drink? The only thing you’ll need to beat that afternoon slumber is a refreshing effervescent drink.
But wait. It can get better than this.
You can use nutritious effervescent tabs to make your drink interesting and healthy at the same time. All you have to do is drop the tablet, wait for it to fizz, and enjoy the flavorful, healthy drink. Such nutrition supplements are designed to release all the goodness of the ingredients as soon as the tablet is dropped in water. Make it a ritual to have this effervescent drink post-meal, and that’s your first hydration hack. On to the next now!
Make it tastyWater is tasteless, so make it a little tasty. Try infusing water with some fresh fruits or mint leaves. This simple trick can add a little fruity flavor to the water, making you crave for it more often. Want to take this one step ahead? Use daily fiber supplements. Choose a fiber supplement with exciting tropical flavors and add the fiber powder to your water. Fiber keeps you full, improves digestion, and also makes you more thirsty, ensuring that you feel the urge to have more water for at least the next few hours.
Eat Your 8 GlassesYou heard it right. Water from juicy fruits like watermelon and oranges and vegetables like cucumber can also add to your daily water intake. The best part is that these fruits and vegetables are high in fiber. So again, it will make you feel more thirsty. Additionally, fruits and veggies contain plenty of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that make this hydration hack an absolute 10/10.
Take it to the gymAre you someone who never misses their daily workout? Add your protein supplement to a bottle of water, and make sure you finish it up throughout the session. The protein will help you be more active, speed up muscle recovery, and suppress your food cravings, thus helping you hydrate and lose weight in the right way. Vegan plant protein is the new trend, so give it a try if you haven’t already.
Buy a Fancy bottleChange your water bottle. Get yourself a bottle that looks attractive and also has markings. Such bottles aren’t too expensive, and they also do the job of attracting your attention and revealing how much more water you need to drink for the day.
Fruity Water PopsicleYou might forget to drink water, but you’ll never forget to have a zesty, icy popsicle. Will you? Just grab your popsicle molds and fill them with liquid of your choice (water, juice, coconut water), and drop a few freshly chopped fruits like berries, kiwi, watermelon, etc. Freeze them in the freezer, and they are ready! Additionally, you could also add fresh herbs and sweeteners to make them more delicious.
Aqua-fresh Skincare RoutineDo you follow a skincare routine? Let’s add a small but 10 times more effective step to your skincare routine. Collagen supplements are a must-have if you want to maintain the integrity of your skin and keep it from showing signs of aging. Get a glass of water and add a scoop of marine collagen, which is considered to be the best collagen for your hair, skin, nails, and bones. This collage drink will not only boost collagen levels in your body but also help you complete your water intake, which is also essential for good skin health.
Brew a Healthy ConcoctionIf you are a tea person, then this hydration hack is for you. Switch to green tea and herbal tea instead of milk tea. These concoctions are prepared in water and are not mixed with milk like normal tea. Having it 2-3 times a day will take care of at least 1/4 of your daily water requirement. You can have it first thing in the morning or whenever you are feeling sleepy. Green tea contains some caffeine, so you do get that kick, but it also comes with plenty of health benefits, making it a great choice for individuals who want to live a healthy lifestyle.
Drinking water is easy but difficult at the same time. To all the forgetful workaholics out there, we hope these interesting hydration hacks will help you stay hydrated every day. Make your water tasty and healthy with fiber or organic plant protein supplements. And we will repeat it again, have your 8 glasses throughout the day and not at a time.
