We are living organism and living organisms need to drink water to stay alive. The human body is made up of nearly 60% water and serves as the foundation of all of our bodily functions. You can’t live without it. Water covers over half of the world and is in the food and drinks we consume.
When it comes to drinking water on a daily basis, some of us have a hard time drinking enough throughout the day. Most of the time we turn to soda and sugary drinks to stay hydrated. This has a very bad side effect on the body and should be avoided if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Certain health conditions can arise from a high sugar diet and lead to many diseases including high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and much more. Before you decide to go down that road, try out some of our tips to continue to drink water routinely and enjoy it while you do. I’m sure you will be craving a glass after you read this 🙂
1. Infuse your water with some fruit or vegetables.
Water has no taste. So it may get a little boring to drink water all the time and many of us forget to drink it when we are dehydrated. Adding fruit to water is a great alternative to the boring taste of water and it also gives you a healthy boost of vitamins. Try avoiding adding any extra sugars such as crystal light or stevia as it has a reverse effect and leads to other health problems. Our favorite recipe is to add some raspberries and blackberries and cut up a few very thin slices of orange thrown in with it! SO delicious!
2. Invest in your water
If you are serious about getting in shape or living a healthy lifestyle. Go ahead and spend some money on an adorable cup, tumbler, or an eye-catching water bottle you don’t want to be without, it sounds silly but having a cute water cup can encourage you to carry it places like class or work. Personalize with your water, have fun with it. Find a tumbler that says something hilarious and you’ll find yourself drinking more!
3. Drink water with LOTS ice cubes or warm water if you prefer
Most of like ice-cold water and if you want to drink more water, load up on ice cubes. It definitely helps during a hot summer day in Phoenix or in Arizona in general. However, you may only prefer warm water and that’s great! Warm water actually digests faster than cold water and hydrates your body faster.
4. Use an app to track your daily water intake
Keeping up with how many glasses you’ve finished can be easy (and fun) with the help of a free app. Download Daily Water Free or Carbodroid to your phone to set daily reminders and alarms. It makes drinking water fun and helps motivate you to stay healthy.
5. Choose alkaline water or electrolyte-enhanced water
You may not notice much of a taste difference from purified water to alkaline water or electrolyte water, but there are many associated health benefits form the two. We offer alkaline water 5 gallon water delivery to residents in the Phoenix metro area. Alkaline water is great for the body to ensure it is receiving its proper nutrients. When the body is not getting enough alkaline minerals from food and water, it must rob calcium from its own bones to neutralize acidity. This is not ideal and once the body’s readily available alkaline mineral supplies are depleted, it becomes overly acidic.
We offer our own brand of electrolyte-enhanced water called Evolve. It is great for dehydration and for athletics and kids who are active all the time. Instead of turning to sugary drinks like Powered and Gatorade, which contain a great dose of high-fructose corn syrup, you can get all of the added benefits of electrolytes by trying our Evolve water just without the sugar. high-fructose corn syrup can contribute unwanted calories that are linked to health problems, such as weight gain, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and high triglyceride levels. All of these boost your risk of heart disease.
6. Drink a glass of water before every meal
This isn’t great for drinking more water but for losing and maintaining your weight goals. If you drink a glass of water before you eat or snack on junk food, you will be less hungry and might not even crave that candy bar sitting in the corner. The goal is to always keep your mind straight so you can decide on a more healthy meal!
7. Mark your water bottle
A bottle that’s marked with ounces or even hours can help you reach your personal water goal each day. Plus, you’ll know exactly how many times you need to refill! Try the Aquamotiv Inspirational Quote 28Oz Infuser Water Bottle!
8. Purchase a water cooler or have water delivered to home or office
Most of us cannot stand the taste of tap water in the city, so we turn water bottles for clean, purified water. After awhile, it can get annoying having to empty the amount of bottles that pile up in your recycling bin or garbage can. Water coolers are great at eliminating the bottle and save you energy and time of having to buy more water bottles in the process. White Water can deliver 5 gallon bottles to your home of residence or office place if you own a business. Our rates are affordable and for only a small payment a month you can have ice-cold drinking water nearby at all times. We even include a water cooler for rental when you are on our monthly services.
