7 Tips to Drink More Water

 

 

The latest research from The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends that men drink at least 104 ounces of water per day (13 cups), and they say women should drink at least 72 ounces (9 cups). You may also need to drink more water if you live in a hot climate, exercise often, or are under the weather. Following through on these recommendations can be a challenge, so read on to discover 7 tips to drink more water, and parents should also check out our article on how to get your kids to drink more water. Trust WaterSmart to provide high-quality drinking water in our refillable 18L bottles, which are delivered free of charge. Contact us today!

"The entire team at Watersmart Systems can be commended for their professionalism, and commitment to their customers. Sales were non pushy, didn't upsell, explained processes and models clearly and took the time to answer questions clearly. Installation was done by clean, professional and courteous technicians. They were on time, and took ownership and responsibility for their work. When an unexpected issue came up, the installer and Watersmart staff took control, took responsibility, acknowledged our inconvenience and worked quickly to resolve the issue not even related to their installation activity. Highly recommend Watersmart Systems. A great example of exceptional customer service."

7 Tips to Drink More Water

 

1. Set a Timer

 

Sometimes we need that extra reminder to accomplish a task, so set an alarm with a "drink more water" notification on your mobile device or computer, and be sure to follow through!

 

2. Download an App

 

To take it a step further, and as Self.com points out, "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 Hydro Coach to your phone to set daily reminders and alarms. For more options, here's Healthline's recent list of the best hydration apps.

 

 

Your smartphone is a perfect tool to keep track of how much water you are drinking.
 

 

3. Track Manually

 

If you're not technologically inclined, here's more of an old-fashioned way to make sure you drink more water, and all you need is a bottle and a sharpie!

 

 

 

4. Invest in a Good Bottle

 

In a recent Brita Product Review, we discovered that Brita offers a 590 mL portable squeeze-bottle with replaceable water filter, as well as a 700 mL hard sided bottle that comes with a firm exterior, built-in straw and filter to allow for easy drinking and portability. Both are BPA free and dishwasher safe and are said to replace up to 300 (500 mL) plastic water bottles. Keeping one on hand and refilling as soon as it's empty is a handy and convenient way to drink more water through the day.

 

Invest in a good bottle to ensure you're drinking enough water.

 

 

5. Enjoy the 18L Experience

 

Having a small water bottle is handy, but you want to make sure you're filling it with high-quality drinking water. Enter WaterSmart's 18L bottle, available for $6.75 + $10.00 refundable deposit per bottle. WaterSmart offers spring, distilled, purified (through reverse osmosis) water, as well as free delivery. For 20¢/litre, you can refill your own bottles at either store location. Prepaid water plans are available at huge discounted prices and you can bring in your own bottles or purchase in store.

 

WaterSmart's 18L bottles are a terrific investment.


 

6. Keep a Pitcher on Hand

 

Here's a great tip from To Vogue or Bust: Have a clear pitcher or large vessel (containing at least 1L) right at your work desk! "First of all, ensuring it’s clear (a pitcher like Brita’s or a glass bottle) will give you an easy visual cue to see how you’re doing with your water intake, and it encourages you to finish it. Ensuring it’s a larger vessel means that not only can you take stock of how much you drank (knowing you got through a good 2L over the course of the day if you went through 2 big bottles), but also means you won’t get up and down so much to fetch water - in other words, it minimizes the inconvenience factor so that you just keep drinking water instead!"

 

Keep a pitcher of water at your desk and keep filling your cup or bottle all day.

 

 

7. Add Some Flavour

 

As Self.com rightfully states, "Chugging several glasses of water a day can seem like torture when every cup is tasteless. Add a bit of excitement by dunking fresh fruit (grapefruit, strawberries, lemon), veggie slices (cucumber, ginger, celery), and herbs (basil, mint, lavender) to your carafe." For further inspiration, read "27 Fruit-Infused Waters to Stay Hydrated This Season."

 

Water flavour


Fruit slices are a great way to add flavour to your water.

 

 

Remember: Overhydration can lead to water intoxication, which occurs when the amount of salt and other electrolytes in your body become too diluted. So while it's important to drink water, don't overdo it.

 

In order to remember these tips, here's a handy graphic that you can download or print:
