8 WAYS TO DRINK MORE WATER OVER YOUR LONG SULTRY SUMMER!

     Hello, Dyan here (The Health Coach Is In) to chat with you about how much water you really need to drink to stay hydrated AND to offer you 8 of my simple how-to-tips for drinking more water every day!

 SO WHAT'S IMPORTANT ABOUT DRINKING MORE WATER?

       Water is the fluid that lubricates our systems and keeps us healthy and vibrant. Think of a riverbed in a drought when it's all dried up and cracking where the water is so spars that there's no life in it.

      Now compare your body to that riverbed and imagine what you are doing to it by not staying hydrated with enough water. Yup, soon enough it to will dry up, crack up and become uninhabitable.

     So before you get to that sad state, let's talk about how you will know if you're not drinking enough good old H2O.

     The usual side effects of dehydration are dry mouth and thirst, but you can also look out for other signs of mild to severe dehydration, such as.....

LOW ENERGY, FATIGUE AND LOSS OF MUSCLE STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE

HEADACHES & DECREASE IN MEMORY AND BRAIN FUNCTION

LOW BLOOD PRESSURE

TACHYCARDIA OR RAPID HEART RATE

HOW DO YOU INCREASE YOUR DAILY WATER CONSUMPTION?

Easy! Just try these 8 tips for drinking more water:

 1) Drink 16oz or 16 sips of water first thing in the morning.

 2) Keep a pitcher filled with filtered water for you to drink throughout the day in your fridge at home and on your desk at work. 

 3) Drink 8oz of water before your exercise or your walk.

 4) Sip small amounts of water from your water bottle during exercise.

 5) Keep glass bottles of water in your car, at the office, by your bed. Keep track by wrapping a rubber-band around your refillable bottle for every 8 ounces you drink.

6) Buy an Infusion Water Pitcher and add slices of lime, cucumber and mint to your water pitcher. Or slices of apples, peaches and basil, for a refreshing sweet taste. For some great Herbal-Fruit water infusion recipes check out my POST: Ahhh! The Beauty of Herbal-Fruit Waters.

7) When you open the fridge or pantry and your not hungry, drink a glass of water.

8) Drink your water from your favorite mug or goblet. I drink my water from a mug that has a little knitted sweater wrapped around it.
