We all know that water is good for us and according to the NHS we should be drinking 6-8 cups of fluid per day, but it’s not always as easy as it sounds. Victoria Malcolm, our Wellbeing Expert shares five ways to drink more water.
- Eat lots of fruit and veg
The high water content of fruit and vegetables means they are a fantastic way to introduce more water into your diet, whilst you are also getting all those essential vitamins and minerals. Some fruit and vegetables have a particularly high water content, for example, cucumber and melon, so these are really great options.
- Love your water bottle
Find a water bottle that you love and this will encourage you to drink more water. There is so much choice these days from personalised options to bottles which help to countdown and monitor consumption. Love your bottle and drink more water!
- Plan your water
Drinking too much water with food can dilute the digestive enzymes, making it harder to get the goodness out of your food so try drinking water 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after food. This also means you’ll be well hydrated before you eat and not confuse thirst with hunger.
- Flavour it
If you find water boring and tasteless, try pepping it up by adding some flavour. Some healthy options include a slice of lemon, a sprig of mint or a few slices of cucumber.
