In a world full of sodas, cocktails, fruit juices, sparkling beverages, and so on, it is very easy to forget that we need to instinctively and actively rehydrate our bodies properly. Of course, indulging here and there is perfectly fine. But when you immediately go for a soda rather than a glass of water, things may start to get bad.
Soon, you find yourself constantly going for another soft drink instead of water, and then it’s as if you’re slowly dehydrating yourself. Water is not only delicious, but it truly serves a pure purpose in our lives. It is an essential source of nutrition, and no one can actually live without it.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to trick yourself into hydrating with water rather than reaching for a sugary beverage.
Switch Up the Flavor
The easiest way to make water fun again is to add some fruit to it. Sometimes a simple slice of lemon just won’t cut it when it comes to your taste buds. You can blend in some watermelon or use a water bottle that was made to infuse flavor. You can add virtually any of your favorite fruits to switch up the taste of water.
If you still want carbonation in your water, then try a seltzer water instead of a fizzy soda. You can add fruit to it as well for a unique flavor that you’ll instantly love.
Take Control of Temperatures
Many times, you may just find that you’ll be passing up a room temperature glass water for a very cold juice or soda. If your problem with water is its temperature, then fixing that is simple. Just ensure that you always have a few bottles of Waiakea Water in your fridge. In fact, only keep water in your fridge instead of soda cans and you’ll soon realize that all you were missing was a cold bottle of water. A simple change like this can truly change a lot.
Use a Pretty Bottle
The Waiakea Water signature bottle is already attractive. If you’re not moved by the fact that it is made of high-grade 100% RPET, or recycled polyethylene terephthalate, or that it takes 85% less energy and 90% less water to manufacture it, that’s still understandable. Sometimes, we’re simply just moved by the visual beauty of things.
There are countless beautiful, reusable water bottles for every budget on the market. Make sure the reusable bottle of your choice stays in front of you and is always filled with water. That way, you’ll be able to reach for it whether you’re at the office or in your own home. Having designated bottles for certain places can also help remind you to drink water as well.
Always Have It in Sight
If you find yourself searching for a drink, then there’s your problem. You should always have your Waiakea Water in front of you at all times. That way if you start to feel thirsty, you’ll immediately reach for your bottle rather than run around looking for another beverage that may be in sight.
Also, make sure you keep your Waiakea Water bottles in plain sight when you put them in your fridge. When you open the fridge door you’ll immediately realize that you want a drink of delicious water.
Use It in Your Daily Routine
Plenty of people still use paper planners, or apps to track their day and to do lists. Writing down how much water you’re consuming or tracking it in an app is a simple way to remind yourself that you need to rehydrate. You can go back and note if you drank enough water for the day. If not, then you can also keep track of your new goal: to drink more water!
Draw on Your Bottle
Again, the magnificent bottle is something that Waiakea Water has always been proud of. So why not take a permanent marker to it to make it beneficial for you? You can mark up your water bottle with time-oriented goals that you need to hit throughout the day. This is a perfect way to hydrate for those who enjoy partaking in various challenges. You can also use colored tape if you can’t seem to find a permanent marker when you want to run out the door.
Many of us live on our phones these days. A great way to make sure you are hydrating properly throughout the day is to set up timers and alarms to remind you to drink water. You can set up something every hour to ensure you’ve been drinking a certain amount before dinner. Or set up a set of alarms that will go off to remind you that it’s time to take a drink of your Waiakea Water. This works perfectly throughout the workday as well as when you’re at home.
Eat Your Water
If you find yourself feeling like you just can’t take a swig of Waiakea Water at the moment, or you’re busy enjoying another beverage then it may not be a bad idea to actually eat your water. And no, this isn’t referring to chewing on ice—although if that’s a preference of yours then go ahead and do it!
There are many nutritious foods that contain a high amount of water within. Snack on some cucumber, watermelon, strawberries, celery, tomatoes, cherries, or grapes to take in some water.
Keep a Good Conscience in Mind
Many of us love to support conscious companies and brands that give back to their communities as well as the earth in general. When your water comes from a great place, you’ll feel good every time your hydrate and pick up a water bottle up.
Waiakea has worked hard from the start to be a company and brand that focuses on environmental and ethical awareness. They were the first Hawaiian volcanic water and triple bottom line premium water in the U.S. They use an unparalleled natural volcanic filtration process. Even their bottle is engineered with exclusive high-grade 100% RPET bottle. With so much good going on, you’ll always feel good grabbing for Waiakea water rather than a Coke during lunch.
