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:
Fresh ginger, cinnamon sticks, vanilla bean, cardamom pods
Melon, tropical fuits, apples, berries, citrus, pears
Hibiscus, Violets or any flower that doesn’t have pesticide
Carrots, cucumber, celery
Basil, parsley, thyme, rosemary, mint
And remember, you can use tap water. You don’t necessarily have to buy mineral or filtered water. Have fun drinking your infused water!
