How much water have you had today?
I struggle with drinking enough water (though I have no problem drinking coffee!), and it’s caused a lot of problems for me, physically. From ending up in the hospital several times for dehydration (especially with my second pregnancy), to kidney stones, to an overall feeling of poor health ~ you’d think drinking more water would be a no-brainer, right?
I’ve read that by the time you feel thirsty, you’re already 1% dehydrated ~ so the idea is to drink water BEFORE you even feel thirst!
Here are a few reasons WHY your body needs more water, and a few tips to drink more of it:
One thing that I’ve found is that I need to drink the amount of water that my water bottle holds at least 3 times per day. I’ve set 3 goal times for myself ~ one bottle full finished by 12 noon, one by 3pm and one by 6pm. So far I haven’t kept up with it, but when I look at the clock and see that it is 2pm and I haven’t even finished one water bottle yet, I know that I need to step up my game!
Do you struggle with drinking enough water? What other tips do you have to add? I’d love for you to let me know in the comments!
