Water bottles will help improve your water intake and your body needs enough water every day. Every part of your body - from structures as large as muscles to as small as cells - requires enough water each day to function properly. Water helps your body remove waste, regulates your body temperature, and protects your sensitive tissues and joints. That doesn’t mean drinking it is always fun, however. So, to help you reach your daily water goal, here are 5 ways to drink more water each and every day using water bottles.
Water bottles make water close to you
One of the biggest reasons for not drinking more water throughout the day is the lack of availability. It’s easy to reason with yourself that the coffee machine that’s five feet away is a much better choice than the water fountain two floors down. Investing in water bottles are one of the best ways to fight this internal dilemma. Using reusable water bottles will allow you to keep water on you, without polluting the environment with plastic water bottles.
Water bottles make water intake easier
While your go-to for getting more water each day may just be drinking an extra glass or two, there are other, more fun ways to increase your water intake using water bottles. There are plenty of water-rich foods that will help you stay hydrated every day, such as watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, peaches, and oranges. You can infuse your water with them if there is an infuser basket in your water bottle. Also, if there is timeline present on the water bottle you can easily measure your daily intake of water.
Water bottles can help add flavor to your water
Sometimes, especially during mealtime, you just want a drink with taste, and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, before you turn to soda, consider adding some flavor to your water. While you can use the powdered flavor that you find in the grocery store, those are high in sugar. A healthy way to add flavor to your water is to add fruit using an infuser water bottle. Letting fruit seep in your water is a great way to rehydrate with flavor.
Dilute your sugary sodas with ice
Now, you probably already add enough ice to chill your drink, but, by adding enough ice to efficiently dilute your drink is a great way to increase your daily water intake without completely giving up your favorite drinks such as soda, lemonade, and iced tea. While it may not retain its addictive taste, it is a great habit to pick up occasionally. After all, improvement and change are about small steps at a time, and drinking a diluted drink occasionally is a great step in the right direction without sacrificing your favorite drinks all at once.
