Many people do not like water. It's plain and very simple. Even though it is a needed element to keep our bodies from becoming dehydrated. Many people just don't care for water. What can you do to help water taste better? Filtering it helps but the major way to change the flavor is to find some herbs (lavender or mint), vegetable slices (celery, ginger, or cucumber), or fruit (lemon, lime, strawberries, or grapefruit). The trick is to find ones you like to fuse with water and make them taste better for your consumption. Here are some other ways to help you get the water you need each day:
- Drink a few sips before each meal. It will help fill you up and help you drink more each day.
- Drink some water each time you go to the bathroom. The more you drink, the more you will need to go to the bathroom. This will help to flush and clean your system.
- A free app such as Daily Water or Daily Water Free can help you keep track of how much water you've finished each day. They can be downloaded to your phone and then set alarms and daily reminders.
- Leave a gallon jug near you throughout the day, Having this near you will help to remind you to drink.
- Get a filter. Filtered water tastes better. Depending on where you live, the filter can help with the quality of the water you will be drinking. You can also get one for the kitchen sink.
- Mineral or sparkling water is a better choice than soda.
- Eat your H20. Add vegetables or fruit with a high water content to your grocery list. Such recipes as Cucumber salad or Salmon salad with grapefruit can add water to your daily diet.
- Use a marked bottle and each time you empty it, fill it right back up.
FYI: A woman should drink at least 91 ounces each day. A man should drink 125 ounces each day. So if women can drink 11-12 8-ounce glasses each day and men between 15-16, they will have drank the needed daily amount.
