The responses we get are quite humorous:
> "There is water in my ice in my whiskey" (add grumpy cowboy-ish accent)
>"Water is an ingredient of beer, I will make sure to increase my intake" (add surfer like accent)
>"I don't like water, it makes me have to pee" (add older conservative women accent-whatever that sounds like :)
Your body is 2/3 water, not 2/3 pop (aka soda for you southerners), not 2/3 syrupy water additive, not 2/3 coffee, not 2/3 Crystal light. The earth is also 2/3 water- how ironic. Your brain is actually 80% water- what do you want to replenish it with? Hint Hint- the answer is WATER
How much water are you drinking per day? HonestlyWell, this is called Tips To Thrive
#2. Print out a picture of something you love. It could be your spouse, snorkling, puppies, your kids, a favorite vacation, unicorns, whatever and use clear packing tape and smack it onto your new best friend (your water bottle). You will magically drink more water! This works because you will look at your bottle more because subconsciously you are drawn to that picture and that reminds you to drink more water. Voila, Magic!
#3. Add mint, lemon, lime or even cucumber to your water. It changes it up a bit, looks pretty and for the lemon and lime, it helps with your PH (we will talk about that in a future post-PH is PHun).
#4. Use a straw, you drink more that way. I don't know why, but it has been studied and proven by someone-I swear. Some say, they don't use a straw because it will give you wrinkles around your mouth, but duh... you will know you don't need to worry about that if you read the next blog post "Make Love Not Wrinkles".
#5. Don't worry about the whole "ICE" or "NO ICE" controversy. If putting ice in your water makes is more appetizing for you, then do it! Cold Water is WAAAAY better than No Water!
#6. Put all of the non-water beverages in the back of your fridge behind larger items so essentially, you don't see them. Then don't buy more and celebrate the savings - Yeah!!
#7. Eat lots of fresh juicy fruits and veggies, they are packed with water!
#8. Every time you go to the bathroom, throw your hands in the air and give yourself a little "Woot Woot", because you are showing that your H20 has increased. It's a Party in the Potty!
#9. Have a water drinking contest with your family or co-workers. Track how much your drink during the day and at the end of the week, the winner gets a pack of toilet paper and VERY happy kidneys.
If you have a "sticky" sensation in your mouth, you are already dehydrated.
If you are hungry, chances are you are just thirsty
If you have a headache, chances are you are dehydrated
