We all know that we are supposed to drink plenty of water each day, but most of us fall short of the daily recommendations. If you struggle to drink the amount of water you should be, try out some of the tips for drinking more water during your workday.
What is the number one reason people struggle with drinking water? It is kind of boring. While you might not want the extra calories that sugary drinks deliver, you still might crave them only because you are craving their flavor. To combat this, try to get your daily water partially through options that pack a bit of a flavor, such as herbal teas and infused waters.
It is common for our bodies to misinterpret thirst as hunger. If you are feeling hungry, try to drink a glass of water first. If you still feel hungry after about 15 minutes, go ahead and eat. However, in many cases, you will discover that you no longer feel hungry at all.
Not only will it help you see how much you have drank, but it will also motivate you to keep going. One liter bottles marked by every 100 milliliters are perfect for this. You can even find some with sayings on them to motivate you to keep going.
Keep your water bottle right there on your desk or next to it. If you can, keep a water dispenser in your office space as well. The easier it is to access the water, the more likely you are to drink it.
Part of the struggle is that if you do not steadily drink throughout the day, you feel pressured to drink it all at once. Instead, set goals. You can set them for the hour, or whatever interval works for you. In fact, there are even apps you can use to remind you when to drink.
With these tips in mind, you should be able to drink the recommended amount each day without trouble.
