Everyone knows that drinking water is vital for your health as it is a staple in every diet and excerise plan. Water has many benefits as it keeps your body hyrdated, skin clear, and may even help you lost weight. There are different studies telling you how much you need to drink, but regardless, it is something that people need to consider as part of their daily habits. One study conducted in 2004, reccomanded men to drink 125 ounces of water and women to drink 95 ounces. It is also dangerous to drink too much water, but many Americans would not run into that problem as sugary drinks would be their first choice to sip on.
Here are different ways to help you drink water throughout the day as shown in the Huffington Post:
1. Water to-go: Add a small bottle to your book bag or purse and try sipping on it while you’re on the go.
2. Drinking at your desk: Leave a resuable cup at your desk and make a habit in sipping on it. When it is empty, refill it–it will help you get up and walk around as well!
3. Drink before you eat: A study found that people who drank 2 cups of water before a meal lost 5 more pounds over the course of 12 weeks than those who didn’t drink. Not only will it help you drink more water, it will help you feel more full.
4. Make it taste better: Some people think that drinking water tastes too plain, so try adding 1/4 cup of juice to create a fruity taste to your water.
