Studies have shown that Americans consume far below the recommended daily minimum. Nearly 75 percent of Americans drinks less than the recommended 10 cups of water. As temperatures exceed 100 degrees, emergency visits related to dehydration are also on the rise. It’s critical for your health and safety to stay hydrated this summer.
To help you increase your water intake, we at Glasstic came up with five ways to drink more water.
Add Flavor – Adding flavors to your water can help you stay hydrated. Sometimes we get tired with the same bland taste of water. To spice it up, try adding low-calorie flavor packets or even fruit to your water. It’ll help you drink more and provide a refreshing taste. Check out our fruit infused recipes for ideas.
Carry a Water Bottle Wherever You Go – Keep your water bottle close! Those high temperatures make it unsafe to travel without your water. Whether you are walking to work or taking a hike, water is essential for your body to function properly. Make sure to bring your Glasstic wherever you go!
Use an App to Track Your Water Intake – Tracking water intake is essential for good health. It’ll help you stay on track and stay hydrated throughout those long summer days. There are multiple ways to keep track of water intake. You can create a journal, track it on an app or even make it a game to see if you can drink more water.
Set a Goal – By setting a goal, you’re holding yourself accountable for your own health. You can even set incentives to make you drink more water. This will help keep you on track and improve your overall health. There are so many health benefits to drinking water.
Think of it as a Snack – Replace a snack by drinking more water. Many times our body plays tricks on us. What we mistake for hunger is actually thirst. This will help you drink more water and also lose weight.
These were just a few of our tips to keep hydrated this summer. Remember to keep your Glasstic water bottle close and avoid the health impacts of dehydration.
