Need to drink more water? Here are tips to get you to drink more!

Do you feel like you need to drink more water and you aren’t drinking enough? I drink a lot of water. And when I say a lot, I really mean A LOT. Think, at least 2 liters every day. Not to mention the water that I get from fruits, tea, and the meals I take 3 times a day.

But the sad thing is, I do know a lot of people who drink less than a liter of water a day. And no matter how much they were forced to drink more (by loved ones and health practitioners), they just couldn’t. Their reason? Water isn’t tasty. Water is boring. They’d rather drink juices or soda – which is a big NO NO!

So how can you encourage friends or loved ones, or yourself if you aren’t a big water fan, to drink more water? The answer is to make infused water.

How to drink more water

It’s all about the water bottle.

You’d think choosing a water bottle isn’t a big part of the program to get you to drink more, but it actually plays a big role. You have to choose a water bottle that you won’t have problems bringing with you wherever you go.

Choose it in your favorite color or if you’re on-the-go all the time, choose one that is light and can be carried easily.

Make water more colorful, tasty, and healthier.

The trend for quite some time now is to infuse water with different kinds of healthy food items. If you don’t know how to do it, watch this video:

 

Here is a quick look at the food items that you can use to infuse water with:

Spices

Fresh ginger, cinnamon sticks, vanilla bean, cardamom pods

Fruit

Edible flowers

Hibiscus, Violets or any flower that doesn’t have pesticide

Vegetables

Carrots, cucumber, celery

Herbs

And remember, you can use tap water. You don’t necessarily have to buy mineral or filtered water. Have fun drinking your infused water!

    How can you people hate water and not be able to drink enough of it? I could literally drink liters of it and not mind it!

  • Josephine Murphy says:

    Infused water tastes good but nothing beats just plain water. Never in my life that I thought that water is boring. It’s very refreshing especially when cold and it’s nothing compared to juices or anything else.

    • Maggie Lawrence says:

      I agree. But there are really people who don’t get hydrated enough!

  • Lillian Sanders says:

    I hate water, I would rather drink juices honestly. It’s still liquid anyway and it’s the same!

  • Catherine Lewis says:

    Infused water tastes like weird stuff with less of a fruit taste. No way…

  • Karla Alvarez says:

    I never thought that infusing fruits in water can also help you get the benefits of the actual fruit.?

  • Myra Sullivan says:

    You can actually infuse any fruit with water. Strawberries, kiwi, mangoes, anything that you can imagine. I actually like the taste. I just buy water bottles that have containers underneath and it helps you soak fruits with water without it the fruits moving around the bottle.

  • Kim Fowler says:

    What I do is boil fruits in water, then let the water cool and I freeze it. It infuses the taste better but I don’t let it simmer too much to the point that it will almost become a jam.

    • Sounds like a good idea. I don’t like the soaked taste of fruits anyway and doing this might be better.

  • Dixie Hawall says:

    Let me just add that raw water will always be best. Compared to infused ones or sodas. Or whatever fruit juice you always drink. Water doesn’t have sugar and it has 0 calories.

    • Marian Cox says:

      True, if you add fruits, even if it’s healthy, it also has calories!

  • Della Blake says:

    I agree that pretty water bottles make me want to drink more water!?
