We all know we probably don’t drink enough water on any given day, and when you’re focussing on drinking more water it’s easy to lose count.
I don’t know about you but I’m really not into keeping a little chart and ticking a lil box every time I fill my glass – like, what?
BUT since speaking to wellness experts every single week on the Body Bliss Cafe, and having nearly every single one of them talk about drinking more water, I’ve been a bit hyper-aware of how much I’m NOT drinking. (and that’s after I have my morning lemon water)
I remembered a little trick I read somewhere about an easy way to keep track of how much water you drink during the day.
I tried it, and it works.
Get a water bottle. Mine is 500ml or two cups.
I’m aiming to drink 2 litres a day (68 fluid ounces).
That’s four x 500ml bottles.
So I should be able to remember to count to four during the day right?
I’m convinced that as we get older our brains get full. That’s my story anyway 🙂 Shorter story – I am not sure I’ll remember the count!
I took four bands out of my hair-tidy container.
I put them onto the bottle near the bottom. Every time I drink all the water in the bottle I move the band to the top of the bottle.
Voila. 2 litres of water. Drunk and tracked. Baby 🙂
I did think about using a bigger bottle, but needing to get up and walk to the kitchen and refill my bottle is part of another strategy to move more and sit head-in-screen less.
I don’t remember where I saw this – probably LifeHacker 🙂 But simple and clever hey 🙂
So will you do it?
