Hands up if you catch yourself regularly saying, “I haven’t drunk enough water today”. Sound familiar? Those dehydrated headaches (right in the forehead) and poorly functioning digestion can most likely be linked to a lack of water. If you’re anything like us, and can’t go a day without your morning coffee (which is also a diuretic) you also probably need to be on top of how much you drink. So, we’re here to up the ante on the hydration station and get you swigging on h2o regularly – without even thinking about it.
Ideally… you should be aiming for 8 glasses or 2 litres. Here’s what we do!
1. Invest in a decent BPA free water bottle
Our Lorna Jane water bottles are designed for the girl on the go and especially the girl who moves every day – which is even more of a reason to be drinking more water. It’s important that for each hour of exercise, you add on another 200mLs of H2O.
2. Squeeze some lemon
Not only does freshly squeezed lemon make water taste more appealing but it helps digestion and gives your body a huge hit of vitamin C and minerals to fight off colds and flus.
3. Eat your water
Drinking water is important but so is eating hydrating foods. Most fruits and veggies are made up of about 70% water but some are made up almost entirely of it. Eating foods like watermelon, celery, cucumber, lettuce, radishes, tomatoes, capsicum, spinach, cauliflower, strawberries, citrus fruits, broccoli and rockmelon will keep you happily hydrated.
4. Make spritzers
Spritzing up your mineral water can also be a fun way for such a simple gesture at dinner parties or when you have friends over. Sometimes offering plain water to your guests can be boring, but not with the help of pomegranate, pineapple and blueberries.
5. Jazz up your ice cubes
Some people prefer cold water to room temperature, so try popping in fruits, veggies and herbs into your ice cube trays – not only do they look pretty, but it makes instant vitamin water!
6. Get an active living planner and tick off your water checklist
Available online or in store, the Lorna Jane Active Living Planner is your one stop shop to tracking all your MNB progress. Call it a food diary, water tracker, personal motivator or goal setter – this pink lady has got your sorted.
