Increasing your H2O intake has long been known to have a positive impact on your overall wellness. People who intentionally drink more water often report glowing skin, better digestion, and reduced dehydration-related headaches. 

If the health benefits of drinking more water are well known, and water is available, why is increasing your daily water intake so tricky? It often comes down to daily habits and routines. Since it can take between 18 to 254 days for a new habit to become routine, we present these three easy ways to motivate yourself to start drinking more water today. 

1) Level Up Your Water Bottle

Ditch single-use plastic bottles and cups that require constant replenishment. Opt for a larger bottle that requires fewer trips to the sink or refill station to ensure water is always within arm’s reach. 

Consider adding a motivational bottle that will cheer you on as you sip throughout the day with phrases such as “Ready. Set. Drink”, “Halfway There”, and “A Little Bit More,” marking the fill lines along the side of the bottle.

2) Layer in Technology

Don’t leave your intake levels up to chance. Track your intake using an app or smart water bottle to measure your actual water intake as you refill and sip H2O.  By keeping track of your consumption, you can feel confident when you’ve hit your goal for the day. 

3) Piggy-back on Your Regular Routine

Lastly, a common way to build a new habit is to chain it together with existing patterns. Consider adding “drink water” to the start or end of other activities you already complete daily. For example, you could start by taking a sip every time you stop to check your email or social media feed. Next, you might add drinking a full glass of water to your lunch routine before you heat up or prepare your meal. 

Drinking water is one easy, simple way to improve your overall wellness. How will you infuse your routine with more H2O? The great news is that there’s no right or wrong way to get started. Cheers to your improved wellness when you make “drinking more water” part of your daily routine.
