6 Easy Ways to Drink More Water

Y’all have always heard how beneficial it is to drink water. It keeps your skin looking young and clear, decreases fatigue, and it helps you burn fat. I always see it on people New Year’s Resolutions, which I’m totally guilty of. Which is why I’m sharing a few simple ways to drink more water everyday.

1. Skip the Pop
I always make a point to only drink something besides water during breakfast. Other than that I avoid pop, soda, coke or whatever y’all call it where you’re from. It’s a simple way to ensure you drink water at every meal.

2. Use an app
Nowadays everything is online. You can even get an app to track all the amount of water that you drink. It’s a free and easy way to keep up with how many glasses you’ve had.

3. Bring a water bottle everywhere
Especially after coming to the South for college, I always make a point to bring a water bottle with me wherever I go. It’s a great reminder to stay hydrated.

4. Use a marked water bottle
Though I’ve never used this method, I’ve had plenty of friends who have found it successful. Just take a water bottle and mark on it different times of day that you should finish drinking a certain amount of water.

5. Use a straw
This is so relatable, but studies have shown that people drink more water when using a straw. Seriously, just try it out!

6. Add some flavor!
It’s always fun to add some fruit-infused water into your routine. I’ve been loving the Define Bottle that uses Tritan plastic. While the bottle may look likes it’s made of glass, it’s actually just plastic which makes it that much lighter to bring around campus. I also love that Tritan plastic is BPA free, which is always important to me when it comes to water bottles. Y’all can go ahead and follow Tritan on all their social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Pinterest.

  2. I love infused water! My roommates and I kept a pitcher of it in our apartment all the time--my favorites were lemon/raspberry and lemon/cucumber. Taking soda and sugary drinks out of your diet is such a good way to start eating healthier!

  6. I love this- I am a huge water drinker (I gave up drinking soda almost 3 years ago). I definitely think using a straw helps so much!
