6 tips to stay hydrated

We all know how important it is to drink enough water every day. It's the number one tip related to concentration, sleep, weight loss, digestion, good-looking skin and just overall health. While we hear/read "drink enough water!" all the time, it might not be such an easy thing to do for everyone. I used to drink too little but thankfully that has changed over the past few years, and I have my personal tricks to make sure I drink enough every day. 

6 tips for drinking enough water

1. Make flavoured water. Cut up some lemons, oranges, strawberries, limes, cucumber or take some fresh mint leaves. Add it to a big glass or a jug of water with ice cubes and you'll have the freshest drink. Because the water tastes better you'll easily drink more of it.

2. Use my hair tie tip!

3. Bring a bottle of water with you everywhere you go. I always carry a 50cl or 75cl water bottle with me (not too heavy) and refill it throughout the day. Especially when you work out you must drink enough. This is my favourite type of water bottle because it has the special drinking cap.

4. Buy a "cold cup" (one of those plastic cups with straw). This works really well for me since drinking through a straw seems to go much faster than drinking from a glass. It's also more 'fun' in a way, as if you're drinking a cocktail!

5. Set yourself a goal every day. One of my friends buys a huge 2 liter bottle of water and tells herself she needs to finish it by the end of the day, and it seems to work. 

6. Prepare a glass of water with juice from half a lemon at night and place it on your nightstand. The first thing you do in the morning is drink this which immediately hydrates your body and helps digestion. Doing this every night also makes sure you don't forget to drink in the morning because you're in a hurry. 

Let me know in the comments if you have any good tips!
