I mentioned before that one of my goals this year is staying hydrated. I get a lot of migraines and staying hydrated is one way I help counteract and prevent them. It is also one way I am trying to stay healthier this year. So today I am sharing a few tips to stay hydrated that are working well for me!
Whether I am working out or simply working on my blog, I tend to forget to drink as much water as I should. I could name my excuses all day long, but really what it boils down to is a decision to be more conscious about drinking more. And this year I have decided to do better!
I’ve tried all the tricks out there, but for me there are just a few trips to stay hydrated that really work for me. And today I am happy to share them with you.
Tips to Stay Hydrated
Use a Cup that Works for You
I have tried using bottled water but besides not being an eco friendly choice, it is also an expensive option. So instead I found the best reusable water bottles ever! So go on a little search and find a cup or water bottle that works for you! If you use the same cup, it will be easier to track how much water you are actually drinking.
Make a Plan
I am a planner so I need a plan to accomplish my goals in my life. With trying to stay hydrated, I needed an actual, doable plan. The water bottles I use hold 24 oz of water. So for me, I have made the goal to drink one bottle of water in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. I don’t always meet my goal but I try. And even when I don’t meet my goal, I am still doing better then I did last year and I celebrate the progress I make!
Mix it Up
I don’t particularly love soda or juice but I can’t stand drinking plain tap water all day long, so I sometimes need to mix it up! I recently discovered DripDrop® Hydration Powder at CVS (it’s in the baby aisle) and was excited to try it out! (You can download a coupon to save $1 on DripDrop® here, while supplies last, from 1/25/15 – 2/21/15.)
DripDrop® adds a touch of flavor to my water and adds amazing hydration properties! This was originally developed to help people with mild to moderate dehydration. This is great to re-hydrate after a workout or to help my whole family stay hydrated through winter sickness. (This is safe for children over 1 year old.) And because I tend to forget to drink, this is a great way to help stay hydrated when I forget to drink as much as I should.
And the best part is that this tastes quite yummy too! My husband and children (age 8 and 4) loved it too!
I am not perfect, but I am doing better this year then last year! And my goal is to continue to improve and stay hydrated this year!
I’ve shared my tips to stay hydrated, but I need your help! Please share your tips with me on how you stay hydrated!
