When it comes to holistic health, water is as close to a miracle cure as it gets, and our scalp needs the extra H2O in order to thrive. We all know it, but it’s easier to talk about implementing more water into our routines than actually doing it! Here are a few tips that are keeping us hydrated and happy.
Buy a pre-measured water bottle. It’s time for a little spring cleaning! Instead of switching between 15 different bottles you’ve accumulated over time, pick 2-3 of your favorite reusable water bottles and recycle the rest. It’s so important to know how much we are drinking every day, and trying to remember the measurements of a cupboard full of bottles can be confusing and demotivating. Draw lines on your bottle to give you goals of how much you’ve had to drink that day, or grab this one from Amazon. A Stanley Thirst Quencher is also a perfect option to maximize your daily water intake.
Set alarms on your phone. Set a few daily alarms to remind you to finish that bottle (or 3!). We get it - the days get busy. We all need a little reminder every once in a while! You could also try a habits app that will help you to reach daily goals like getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, going on a walk, taking time to reduce stress, etc.
Use a straw. Using a straw just makes drinking water so much more FUN! It also makes drinking water so much more mindless. If it’s sitting right in front of you with a straw sticking out, you’ll reach your goal before you even notice.
- Eat more fruits & veggies. Eating more water-rich foods automatically increases your water intake, while often also providing more nutrients into your diet. Try snacking on strawberries, peaches, tomatoes, peppers, and other fresh, water-rich bites if plain water isn’t cutting it.
