Ditch The Diet for Healthy Habits

Bottoms Up!

~Ditch the Diet~

I drink a lot of water! It is easy for me to get enough water in each day because I don’t even think about it, I have made it a habit.

Maybe you don’t have a habit of drinking water so you have a hard time remembering to drink water.

One of my tips for increasing water consumption is every time you go to the bathroom drink a full 8-ounce glass of water before you leave.

This habit will create a cycle, the more water you drink the more trips you will take to the bathroom, the more water you will drink. Before you know it you will be used to drinking water and will have created a new habit.

Also, here is an interesting fact, when I worked in the hospital taking care of patients on fluid restriction, the Drs would always say to take all the straws out of the patient’s room.

Drinking out of a straw causes people to drink 30% more. So, stick a straw in your water and you will drink more without even realizing it.

Don’t wait until you feel thirsty to take a drink of water. Most likely by that point you are already slightly dehydrated.
