Tips to Boost Your Daily Water Intake: From Dianna and Tanya, Founders of élevé
So many people rarely drink water. Besides tea and coffee, lots of folks just aren’t beverage people at all and keeping up with daily water intake may not be top of mind throughout the hustle and bustle of one’s day.
It’s important to consider how crucial water is for our health. Making small adjustments to daily water habits can make such a positive difference not only for hydration but for energy levels, detoxification, weight management, and overall wellness. Check out these 10 tips to start implementing in your life now, and trust us - your body will thank you!
Tip #1: Keep Track of What You Drink with a Measured Bottle
Like with every task, you need to make sure you have the right tools to get the job done effectively. Grab your favorite tumblr because that makes it easy to keep track of. It is a lot easier to keep track one tumblr instead of 8 or more cups. To get your full daily water intake with élevé crack open 3 of our 12-ounce cans.
Tip #2: Drink from a Straw
We know a lot of people who prefer to have a water bottle/cup that has a straw. It takes more effort to open up a lid or take a swig of water from a bottle, but straws don't really require any effort. Grab a cool élevé flavor of your choice, crack the can and pour into your favorite cup.
Tip #3: Take Your Water Bottle Everywhere
With a water bottle, you can take advantage of the little moments in the day where you otherwise would not have had anything to drink. We've actually found that this habit has made one of the biggest differences overall. I mean, when we’re at home or at work, we’re usually pretty occupied. But when we’re on public transit or just taking a walk somewhere, we are not distracted by anything. In fact, sometimes these transition times are a little boring. As weird as it sounds, our water bottle becomes a welcome distraction to keep us occupied while we wait to get to our destination. We end up drinking more water during these times more than any other.
Tip #4: Morning Hydration Routine
The morning thirst is real! When we wake up, we love reaching for a 12-ounce élevé to quench our initial thirst. Morning water not only hydrates but also kickstarts our day by boosting alertness. (link to fire)
Tip #5: Time-Chunking Our Hydration
Just like cramming for exams doesn't work, saving all your water intake for later isn't the best idea. We split our daily water into manageable chunks. Start with one can in the morning, continue in the day, and finish by dinner, allowing flexibility.
You might need more or less, but the key is spacing them out. It keeps you consistently hydrated without chugging.
Tip #6: Establishing Hydration Time Blocks
Set specific times to drink water to stay on track. Use alarms, or link it to daily routines – sip before meals, after using the bathroom, or when receiving texts. Customize reminders to suit your needs. Stick to these times, as every sip contributes to your hydration.
Tip #7: Stay Accountable with a Water Friend
Drinking more water can be challenging, and we're not alone in this struggle. Elevate one another. To boost our success, we team up with someone who shares our hydration goals. You can even turn it into a friendly competition if that motivates you. Encouragement and shared goals lead to greater success.
Tip #8: Organic Water Flavoring
Enhancing water's taste can make a significant difference, especially if you're not fond of plain water. We recommend one method – infusing your water naturally. Which is what élevé has done for you. All of our products are infused with organic flavors and functional herbs.
Tip #9: Experiment with Water Temperature
Varying the temperature of your water can keep hydration interesting and motivating. Try different temperature ranges throughout the day: ice-cold, chilled from the fridge, room temperature, lukewarm, or even hot. If you are drinking élevé we recommend our beverage chilled.
Tip #10: Include Water-Rich Foods
If drinking water isn't your thing, consider water-rich foods as a supplementary hydration source. However, remember that food alone can't fully meet your body's hydration needs. Drinking water remains essential, so don't skip it just because you've had water-rich foods.
Tip #11: Reward Yourself for Staying Hydrated
Implement a rewards system to reinforce your hydration habits, but keep it reasonable. This approach ties your reward directly to your hydration progress, offering a small daily incentive to stay on track.
