Tips To Help Increase Your Water Intake

  • Below are some great tips to help increase your water intake daily.
  • Place a water glass on the kitchen sink to remind you to drink.
  • Number 1-8 on a piece of paper and cross off as you drink these glasses of water.
  • Put a jug of water on the table at meal times.
  • Sip some water after meals and after snacks.
  • As  the weather temperature increases, increase your water intake to compensate for perspiration.
  • Drink water before and after exercise.
  • Carry a water bottle with you during the day.
  • Spread water intake over the entire day.  Sip water, do not ‘gulp’.
  • Consuming one cup of caffeine beverage (tea, cola, coffee) or alcohol requires two cups of water to prevent cellular dehydration.
  • Menopausal flushes can be reduced by drinking water.

    Sometimes water straight from the tap has a chlorine odour.  The smell will disappear if a jug is filled with water and placed in the fridge for an hour.
