4 Water Drinking Hacks
Drinking water is essential for maintaining good health, as it plays a crucial role in many bodily functions, from regulating body temperature and lubricating joints to removing waste products from the body. If you have a hard time drinking more water, here are 4 life hacks to help keep you on track.
01. Know how much you're drinking!
It's easy to misunderstand how much you're drinking throughout the day. If you have a favorite water bottle, the easiest way to know how much it contains is by using a food scale set to "fluid ounces" (make sure to zero out the scale so you're not accidentally including the weight of the bottle!) and measuring out your water. If you don't have a food scale, you can simply fill your bottle and pour it into a measuring cup to get the amount. Use this information to know how many full bottles to drink to hit your goals.

02. Know what you're drinking!
Filtered water may lose some of the mineral benefits so look into liquid additives that bring back those vital nutrients and electrolytes. Do your research on what your body needs and make sure to read the ingredient labels to make sure there's nothing questionable. Water alone isn't as beneficial as it could be to helping your body regulate all the different functions it performs. Add some collagen for a water that packs a punch!

03. Get a helping hand with a Bagnet!
Upgrade your Bagnet with a large metal ring to secure your bottle when you're on the go. Bonus if your bottle is stainless steel! It will actually hold your detachable lid in place so you'll never lose it. A Bagnet on your water bottle is great at the gym, while out shopping, and in the car - especially if it's too big for your cupholder!

04. Drink like you mean it!
Let's face it, drinking more water is not the most exciting goal to have, so be more efficient when you DO drink it by counting to 10 each time you take a sip! This way, you'll blast through that bottle before you even know it.
