How to drink 2 litres of water daily
Drinking is important to our body. If we don't drink enough, we usually suffer from headaches, tiredness and loss of concentration. The body does not rinse out harmful substances and, above all, the kidneys don't function properly. Experts recommend drinking 2-3 liters of water a day. Depending on your condition, weight and daily activity and, of course, you should drink more on hot days.
The easiest way to drink water regularly is to use a simple but smart helper - a water bottle.
The key to success is to:
a/ have something to drink in sight or at hand
b/ measure the amount you drink
Smart water bottles
Yes, now even a water bottle can be smart! And the manufacturers outdo each other in ingenuity. The Dot Bottle by Joseph Joseph - a brand, that got 14 Red Dot design awards, is a great example. Dot Bottle measures how many times you fill them up during a day. For every bottle you empty, you get a dot. Like in school? Right, this is how it works! See more in the video.
Kambukka thinks about those who like to spend time in an active way. Elton bottles have a clever stopper. It has three positions - closed, open and opened with a button. In the third position, you only drink when you press a button at the same time. What is it for? To drink on the go. During walks, jogging, in the gym, but also in the car at the wheel. You can be sure you won't fail.
With a taste of nature
You don't like the taste of water? Sweet fruit syrups are not a good way to remain healthy. Have a slice of lemon or orange instead, go for a fresh leaf of mint, strawberries or raspberries.
And again - design makes it easier. For example WMF carafes are equipped with lids with strainers, thanks to which the ingredients don't fall out to glasses while pouring. My Flavour Eva Solo bottles have removable skewers, which can be used for sticking the fruits of your choice and according to your mood. They make water taste better, look beautiful and surprise your colleagues at the office.
Bottles with wider necks can also be used for smoothies. If you like them, check out our smoothie tips.
Pure functionality is not a requirement. Even a beautiful water carafe on your table can constantly remind you of your drinking regime. The advantage of a decanter over a glass is simple - when it comes to a glass, it's easy to forget how much we have actually drank today. When choosing water bottles and decanters, pay attention to the material they are made from. The best choice is glass, stainless steel or eco-friendly plastics such as tritan. They do not contain harmful ingredients, are easy to clean and do not absorb odors.
Thermo flasks not only for grannies
Of course, we don't have to limit ourselves to drinking water. In winter, we can warm up with tea. Green and white tea provide our body with an injection of healthy antioxidants, mate and guarana refresh us, and herbal infusions help in body detox and calming down. Unfortunately, we cannot include coffee in our drinking regime.
You don't have to worry that you are "old-fashioned". Just the opposite! All influencers match their thermo flasks and water bottles with their fitness outfits, bikes and handbags. Being fit is cool!
