The year is coming to an end, and we’re all gearing up to welcome 2020! If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to make your New Year’s resolution. Not surprisingly, health and fitness-oriented resolutions are among the most popular goals we have for ourselves in the coming year, and many people are resolving to drink more water in order to increase their everyday health and wellness. If you, like countless other people around the globe, want to make drinking more water a goal for 2020, here are some easy ways to help you keep that resolution all year long!
Bathroom break? Take a drink!
No matter how busy you are each day, we all have to go to the bathroom! Form a healthy habit by drinking water each time you get up from your desk for a bathroom break. It’s an easy way to incorporate the habit into your daily routine. Plus, since the more water you drink, the more you’ll probably have to visit the bathroom, it will become an easy, healthy cycle to follow. Soon it will become second nature to drink water every time nature calls.
Give it some flavor
Let’s face it- water doesn’t taste like anything. While some people love that crisp, fresh taste of pure water, others need a little more flavor in their drinks, which leads them to opt for unhealthy beverage alternatives. Why not have the best of both worlds? Naturally flavor your water by infusing fruit, veggies, spices, or herbs into a specially-made carafe. Next thing you know, you’ll actually be craving some delicious, naturally-flavored water!
Add a filter
Let’s face it- water doesn’t always taste that great on its own. In fact, water that comes straight from the tap can taste salty, tangy, or just downright gross! Invest in a water filtration system that fits your budget and lifestyle to eliminate nearly all impurities that can make water taste nasty. You will be amazed at how much you actually want to drink delicious-tasting, pure, filtered water!
Make it sparkle!
Attention, soda junkies: there is more than one kind of carbonated beverage out there, and some of them are actually good for you! If you’re one of those people who needs a little zip in their sip, try swapping out your sugary soda pop for sparkling mineral water. Available in a variety of flavors, as well as an unflavored option, sparkling water is the perfect solution for drinking more water without ditching the fizz.
Drinking more water not only helps improve your body’s function, keeping you healthy and hydrated, but it also produces amazing short-term benefits like radiant skin, increased energy, and an overall feeling of vibrancy, and can help you achieve any weight-loss goals you’ve set for yourself in the new year. This New Year’s Day, make a resolution to add water to your daily routine!
