Our body is made up of 60-70% water and it is always recommended to drink enough water daily. A well hydrated body maximizes physical performance, relieves constipation, may aid in weight loss and so much more. But, how do we achieve it? How do we drink 8 glasses of water daily without fail?
Well, here are some easy ways which can help you with building a good (water) drinking habit.
1. Keep a reusable water bottle
With work-from-home being the new daily routine, there are chances that you might get stuck to your laptop or so engrossed with zoom calls that you might forget drinking water even when the kitchen is just few steps away. Keeping a water bottle on your work desk or next to your bed will always remind you to have water. And even when you go grocery shopping or maybe a little walk, make sure to carry a reusable water bottle.
2. Set reminders
We know it sounds really weird but, a lot times people forget to drink water until they feel very thirsty. In that case, the little device that is always with you comes to rescue. There are easy-to-download apps which primarily focus on reminding you to drink water. Like we said, sounds super weird but, it is very helpful if you are trying to build a habit of drinking enough water.
3. Drink water after waking up
Make it a habit to drink 1-2 glasses of water right after waking up. Firstly, you have woken up after a sleep of 7-8 hours, which means your body is dehydrated. So, it is obviously good to re-hydrate your body with water. Secondly, drinking water first thing in the morning wakes up your organs, especially the ones related to the bowel movements.
Not only this, try drinking a glass of water half an hour before every meal. This way you are not only drinking good amount of water but, also making sure that you do not overeat, keeping your weight in check.
