Tips to increase your water consumption

  1. Hydrate when you wake up and before meals

It’s easy to forget to drink water even if you have a bottle of water with you. But prioritising your hydration in the morning, afternoon and evening is crucial. Try drinking two glasses of H2O in the morning, and one glass before each meal or snack. Drinking water at mealtimes can have a dual benefit as it helps you to slow down and it may also help you eat less.

  1. Finish the day with another bottle of water

You should drink a bottle within two hours after waking up. Two hours before going to bed, drink another bottle of water. According to a small study of healthy adults, those who did this (drank 550 millilitres or 18 oz each time) increased their H20 consumption from 44 to 64 oz daily. The participants also saw a drop in blood pressure as the water helps kidneys to remove more sodium. Water consumption also helped regulate body temperature, possibly due to an increase in circulation. For Water Coolers Wales, consider

  1. Follow a diet that is high in fruits and vegetables to get your water

Fruits and vegetables are high in water and will help you reach your daily quota. Fruits like cantaloupes, strawberries and watermelon and vegetables such as celery, lettuce, spinach and cabbage are 90 percent water. Water is also found in dairy products such as milk, cottage cheese and yoghurt.

  1. Try different ways to drink water for maximum enjoyment

Try experimenting with temperature and taste if you find plain water too bland. Try water at room temperature with and without ice. Add fresh fruit, such as the strawberry tops that you discarded from breakfast, or vegetables (cucumbers) to create different flavours.
