A simple rule to drink more water

I love ICE cold water! Love it! Nothing tastes better…except maybe Prosecco with friends. However if it isn’t ice cold I don’t really think to drink it.  Needless to say I’m pretty dehydrated all the time. Only now that I’m in my 30s do I realise how important it is for my health. 
But how do I remind myself to drink more? It isn’t rocket science but I’ve come up with a small rule for myself…and I almost always remember it. Almost. Hey I’m a mum, I’ve got a lot on my mind. 

Rule: Drink a glass of water:

  • First thing in the morning
  • With each meal
  • Right after dinner 

That’s it. I said it wasn’t rocket science. 

If I drink the last one too close to bedtime then I’m running to the loo. I need all the sleep I can get so I try to cut myself off by 9pm on drinks in general. 

This isn’t a hard and fast rule but I can say I know I should at the least be drinking that much water. If I can get more in great. For someone who would drink the equivalent of one bottle of water a day max this is a big step up. 

If you are trying to drink more water in your like try it for a week. I found it was a gentle way to introduce a good habit. 

Are you like me? Low on H2O? What are your tricks to get it in?
