A new year is finally here, and that means one thing. It’s for everyone declaring their grand announcements that in 2017, they will work out daily, cut out carbs and drink more water. Two of those resolutions are a tad more difficult than the third. When it comes to drinking more water, it might be easier than you think.
Prepare yourself with these tips so, maybe this year, you can finally keep that New Year’s resolution about drinking more water.
Invest in a Drinking Water System
If you’re fairly new to the water-drinking game, you want to start off on the right foot. Hard water contains minerals, which give it a thick and gritty taste. This is the same substance that pours from your faucet sink. A drinking water system, like the Kinetico K5, provides the cleanest and tastiest water you can get in your home.
If a key factor in your water consumption is the pure taste, fear not. There are many ways to add flavor to the liquid and make it much tastier to drink, such as:
- Fresh fruit – grapefruit, strawberries, lemon
- Fresh veggies – cucumber, ginger, celery
- Herbs – basil, mint, lavender
A crisp combination of fresh ingredients can turn the bland taste into something to indulge in.
Sneak it into Your Routine
A good way to let drinking water adapt smoothly to your lifestyle is to fit it in the right places. Get in the habit of drinking a glass of water with simple, daily routines.
Set glasses of water in convenient places, like:
- Bathroom sink
- Office desk
- Coffee machine
If you drink a glass after or before you go to bed, wash your face or make your coffee, it will soon become just as routine as the daily task. It’s a simple way to train your mind into craving water and drinking it more.
New Year’s resolutions are notorious for falling through. Adopt a simpler one, like drinking more water, and maybe 2017 will be the year you finally keep it.
