(BPT) – You know drinking plenty of water every day is good for your health. The Institute of Medicine recommends men consume about 13 cups of fluid a day and women take in about 9 cups. Yet remembering to drink water may not always make the top of your daily to-do list.
Here are some tips to naturally incorporate drinking liquids into your day to give you the energy you need to accomplish everything on your to-do list:
* Always have a reusable water bottle with you. Tuck it into your purse or gym bag and have an extra one at your desk. You can find plenty of varieties in the stores, and you might even consider personalizing one so you remember it’s yours and there for you. If the container is handy, you’ll find yourself drinking out of it more often, just out of habit.
* Always make sure your water is freshly filtered. The new EveryDrop Ice and Water Refrigerator Filters are National Science Foundation certified to reduce more contaminants than comparable refrigerator filters, ensuring you’re drinking the quality water you desire. Be sure you’re replacing your ice and water refrigerator filters every six months, to continue to enjoy fresh, great tasting water at home.
* Add fun flavors to your water to change it up, or make fun “mocktails” with your friends. Just cut up oranges, lemons, grapes and other berries and immerse them in your water for a fruity drink. Purchase some travel flavor packets to add to your cup. Like tea? It’s a great way to flavor your water, and it provides plenty of other benefits, too.
* Get out and explore all the watering holes in your community. When on a walk, run or bike ride through your community parks, tuck the EveryDrop Portable Water Filter into your purse or bag. It filters one gallon of water in just two minutes, so when you fill up at a water fountain location, you don’t have to wait to get fresh, great tasting water.
With these tools, you’ll discover it’s easy to stay hydrated throughout the day. Here’s a toast to you for drinking more water, staying hydrated and feeling great. Cheers.
