Drinking lots of water isn’t easy.
I know it’s said often, but it’s as true now as it was then. Water is bland and I seem to only be able to chug a glass of water after eating a bowl full of pretzels. *Cue Kramer’s one-line in the Woody Allen movie on Seinfeld*
“These pretzels are making me thirsty.”
Okay, so to be honest, it’s not THAT hard to drink it. I just have to remember. And with 6 kids, it’s a tad difficult – mostly because my kids end up snagging my water and drinking it themselves. So I’m gonna share 4 different ways to simplify drinking water for you to try…..this is mostly for me…but for you too!
One, drink with a straw.
My daughter and I have taken several trips to our local Casey’s General Store and snagged 32 oz and filled it up with ice water. Only costs $0.25 each, and it guarantees us we’ll get AT LEAST 32 oz. of water! Win-win.
Two, add flavor.
Though I haven’t done this idea in this challenge, I have used fruit water in the past – mostly lemon – and just love it. It gives your drink more flavor. You can use this idea, or better yet, try out the new Karma Wellness Water. It’s packed with vitamins and is only 20 calories a bottle! According to their website, “KarmaCap technology lets you choose when to transform water into wellness.
“Some vitamins deteriorate in water, meaning that vitamin drinks that are premixed can lose their strength over time. But because Karma’s vitamins and nutrients stay in our proprietary KarmaCap until you’re ready to mix them, you’re able to enjoy all their benefits at their maximum potency and peak freshness.”
We received the Blueberry Lemonade Karma Water in our Degustabox this month. Check out our review on Youtube (below) and see if my kids and I liked it or not.
Three, don’t do it alone.
It’s way easier to succeed when you’ve got someone by your side working the challenge with you. Grab a buddy and make it a competition, or keep tabs on each other. Once I brought it up to my oldest, she was on board. She’s struggled more than I have, but I’m always encouraging her to at least drink a cup of water while she’s thinking about it.
Four, set reminders.
This is a perfect tip for those who are forgetful….like me, myself, and I. It’s a curse, really, and alarms were made for people like me. There are also a TON of free apps out there that keep your water intake recorded. Take advantage of those freebies!
My daughter is hoping for a clearer face (her acne struggle is real) so fingers crossed this will help her out a little bit.
