You might have heard the phrase ‘Water is life’. Indeed, human body cannot survive without water for long and it is also made up of 60-70% of the tasteless, odourless liquid. Water intake is vital for our well-being, as it does the job of flushing toxins from the body and carrying essential nutrients to the cells in our body. On an average, a man needs approximately 3 litres of fluid daily, while women require a slightly lesser 2.2 litres. Here are some tips that will ensure optimum water intake.

Drink often

Make it a habit to drink water along with some of your daily activities. These can be anything from going to the restroom, to getting up for fixing yourself a quick snack. Doing this will help in putting more water into your system on a regular basis.

Mix it up

Water is colourless, odourless, and tasteless. What this means is that it can get boring doing the same thing day-in and day-out. What can be done to break this monotony, is to add some flavours of your liking. Herbs, fruit slices or vegetable slices are all top suggestions to make your drink a zesty one.

Eat foods rich in water

Drinking water is not the only source of fluids for the body. Fluid intake can also be complemented by intake of foods rich in water. Case in point being fruits and vegetables such as watermelon, cucumber and grapefruit which have 92%, 96% and 91% water content respectively.

Install an app

Yes, there are several apps present on Play Store and App Store that are designed for alerting you to drink water. What’s more, they can also track your consumption so that you know exactly how much you’ve to drink.
