✨10-Day Wellbeing Challenge✨ Day 1: Drink More Water 💧We are not always aware of it, but water is one of the main ingredients to optimal health. It keeps us hydrated, it regulates our body temperature, and it is also responsible for the transport of nutrients and other substances. Most of us don’t drink the enough amount of water, so make sure you’re having at least 2l of water daily 🍶 You will find a practical exercise to track your water consumption during the day on my wellbeing workbook – download it for free at any time at thewellbeingblogger.com or follow the #linkinbio @thewellbeingblogger 👆 . . #wellbeing #instagramchallenge #wellness #water #health #habits #healthylifestyle #wellbeingblogger #wellnessblogger #coaching #healthyliving #instablogger #portuguesebloggers

We were all taught in school that our body is made of 70% water, and that it is important to stay hydrated. However, many of us dismiss this healthy habit blatantly. My father usually jokes and calls me a camel, because I never drink much water or can spend a long time without a sip.

To be totally honest with you, that joke is still applicable, except when I get focused – really, really focused – on taking care of myself. I believe this can be your case too, so between you and me we have to admit that we do need to take better care of ourselves on a daily basis, not just when things start going wrong.

I have three favourite tricks to get more water into my body, so I thought it could be useful to share them with you here. I’m sure you’re going to laugh about the first one, but I promise you… it works!

1. Have a Glass of Water After Every Time You Pee

Some people will probably find inappropriate to talk about pee, but it’s a very human activity, and I prefer to go literal here instead of using “restroom break” – sorry not sorry. I started to do this unconsciously, so I can’t really tell you when or how this habit kicked-in. All I know is that every time I pee, I now drink at least a glass of water afterwards. If you don’t do this already, give it a try – after a while the body will ask you to do it in an automatic way.

2. Carry a Big Bottle With You Wherever You Go

Whenever I do this one, I can assure you I drink more water. The bigger the bottle, the better, because that way we can be sure we won’t miss it. Also take it with you wherever you go and always place it near you. If you work at a desk, make sure it stands right under your nose! Even if you’re not thirsty, seeing the bottle there will remind you of your goal and make you drink more often.

3. Add Some Flavour To It

Many people have told me that one of the biggest barriers to drink more water is the way it tastes. We can work around this by adding some nice flavours to it. You can add fruits, mint, or even tea. One of my favourite ways of doing flavoured water at home is mixing green tea with lemon and ginger. You can be as much creative as you want and explore different options – I am sure you will find your own favourite mix and start increasing your water intake.

What’s your favourite way of drinking water? Let us know in the comments box. 😉
