Think to Drink! Culligan ZeroWater’s Top Tips for How to Drink More Water

The National Health Service (NHS), suggest that we should drink between 6 to 8 cups or glasses of fluid per day to stay hydrated and healthy. However, this advice is often not followed, and we may only think to drink if we feel thirsty. Surprisingly, Dr. Irvin Sulapas, a primary care sports medicine physician and assistant professor of family and community medicine at Baylor College of Medicine explains:

“The rule of thumb is, if you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. So keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water, even before you begin your outdoor activity”

At Culligan ZeroWater we understand this seemingly simple advice can be difficult to achieve on a daily basis, so we have compiled our top tips for helping you be the best, hydrated version of yourself:

  1. Set a goal: Set a daily goal for how much water you want to drink, and keep track of your progress throughout the day. This can help you stay motivated and make sure you’re drinking enough water.
  2. Carry a water bottle: If you don’t have water with you, you can’t drink it! Keep a water bottle with you throughout the day and make a habit of sipping on it regularly. This can help you stay hydrated and avoid forgetting to drink water. At Culligan ZeroWater we have an excellent range of portable bottles and UV-C caps, to give you the purest tasting water wherever you are.
  3. Set reminders: Use an alarm or a phone app to remind you to drink water at regular intervals throughout the day. You can also set reminders to drink water before or after meals, or during breaks.
  4. Make it a habit: Try to make drinking water a habit, such as drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning or drinking water before and after exercise. James Clear, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Atomic Habits, suggests habit stacking, where you pair your new habit (drinking water), with a current habit.The formula looks like this:
    After/Before [current habit], I will [new habit]
    So, your water habit could be…
    After I sit down to dinner, I will drink 250ml of water

  6. Challenge a friend! Mayo Clinic suggest a little healthy competition to see who can meet their guzzling goals more often can go a long way to helping you up your water game.
  7. Alternate your drinks: The NHS report water, lower-fat milk and sugar-free drinks, including tea and coffee, all count towards your daily quota. Alternating your drinks with water can help to keep your fluid consumption more interesting.
  8. Infuse your water: Add fresh fruit, herbs, or cucumber to your water to give it a different taste and make it more appealing. This can make it easier to drink more water throughout the day. Or, alternatively…
