Drink water, they said. Your body will thank you for it, they said.
But many still fail to reach the recommended daily water intake—which experts say is based on several factors such as physical activity, environment, and overall health.
To help seamlessly integrate water into one’s daily routine, a bottled mineral water brand shares the following tips:
Start the day with a glass of water
Drinking water after several hours of sleep is a good way to rehydrate the body and get it ready for the day ahead by boosting alertness and improving energy levels. Experts also say it helps the body cleanse out toxins that have accumulated overnight.
Keep a glass of water while working or studying
Having a glass or tumbler nearby helps one easily take a sip whenever they are feeling parched, or before they feel thirsty. This simple routine helps cool the body down in between attending meetings, doing assignments, or taking care of household chores.
Take a sip before eating
The best starter before every meal is a glass of water, as several studies say it helps prepare the body for better digestion. Drinking more liquids can also give a feeling of fullness and help control appetite. It is recommended to drink water after an hour of eating to give body time to absorb the nutrients.
Finish a jug of water when exercising
Take sips of water in between exercise routines to avoid feeling light-headed as exercising can drain the body’s fluids through sweat. Establish a goal to empty a full 500ml or 1-liter bottle of water as you do your workout.
Set alarms for drinking water
Nowadays, it is very convenient to set up reminders to drink water as there are apps that can help track how much water has been consumed throughout the day. These apps also help set drinking goals suited for one’s weight, physical activity, and overall health, among others.
