How To Drink Your Daily Recommended Amount Of Water.

13 Jul

Before we get in to this, please note that I am not a registered dietician or medically trained. I am merely sharing my experiences and knowledge of what has worked for me.

Treat it as your job – This one’s simple – treat drinking water as if your livelihood depends on it.

Get a bottle – Daily recommendations state that we should all be guzzling 2litres of the clear stuff a day. Get a 2l bottle and fill it up in the morning then enjoy it at your leisure throughout the day.

Get creative – Remeber that the H2O used in hot drinks counts, as do ice lollies etc – woohoo!

Have an afternoon check – Review how you’re getting on at about 5pm. If you’re nearly finished – that’s great. If you’re not – that’s fine too. Just try and factor it in to the evening.

Oooh and remember, if 2l is substantially more than your current intake – be prepared to spend a lot of time in the bathroom!

    Thanks for these tips! I totally need to drink more water…although I do try! I’ll be incorporating these suggestions into my daily routine now 🙂

    That’s definitely more than I drink right now. LOL But I drink a LOT of tea (hot and cold) throughout the day so I could be getting it and just not be realizing it.

    I just love love water and it’s definitely a privilege that I’ll neeeeeever take for granted!! For that reason, I’m rather good at hydrating (too much?) 😛 Nahhhhh not too much.
    But I also realize that having a stainless steel bottle that I can fill up all the time with filtered water and ice, makes me drink it even more!! This may be helpful to some people hopefully?

    I’m glad tea counts – I drink lots of cups every day! I do generally have a bottle with me, too, if I’m at uni. I’m not sure I ever make it to 2 litres though!

      I always used to think ‘yea of course I get to 2litres’….apparantly not though – 2litres is LOADS! Some is better than none though, so keep going with the tea! 🙂 Thanks for dropping by!
