Hello Everyone!

We hope everyone is able to enjoy the summer weather while it last.

This month in our June Newsletter for Seniors we spoke about how important water is.

Today we would like to leave you guys with some tips on how to add more water to your daily lives.

20 tips for drinking more water

Quick and easy tips for drinking more water

1. Spice up plain old water by adding fresh mint leaves. Mmmm, refreshing. 

2. Instead of setting down an empty glass, refill it with water and keep sipping. 

3. Every time you pass a water cooler stop and take a sip. 

4. If you’re feeling hungry and you’ve eaten recently, drink a cold glass of water, and wait a minute or two. You could just be dehydrated


5. Make your water more interesting by adding a squeeze of lemon or lime. 

6. Add ice cubes to your water – this helps to burn calories when your body brings the water temperature up. 

7. Dilute your juice (apple, grape, or orange) with water. It’s usually too sweet anyway. More hydration with less calories. 

8. Make it a morning ritual. Start your day by drinking one or two glasses of water. Start early, feel better, set the trend for the day. 

9. Eat water-rich foods like watermelon (92 per cent water by weight) for a refreshing, hydrating break from sipping. Just be sure to include the calories in your daily plan. 

10. Have a big glass of water at every transitional point of the day: When you first get up, before you leave the house, when you sit down to work, when you go to lunch… 

11. Get a glass you love. My water mug says “Today is the start of a new journey” and I’m inspired to sip from it every time I look at it. 

12. After each trip to the restroom, drink some water to replenish your system. 

13. Okay, I know it’s less fun, but every now and then when you’re out for cocktails ask yourself “Do I really want this?” At some social functions choose sparkling soda instead. 

14. Drink water or diet drinks instead of high-calorie, sugar-sweetened drinks. 

15. Instead of spending a fortune on bottled water, save your money and the environment and invest in a filter for your home faucet. Or get a portable Brita. Make tap water taste like bottled, at a fraction of the price. 

16. Have a glass of water with your meal, especially when you’re drinking alcohol. 

17. Take a bottle of water with you on your walks . 

18. Carry a bottle you like. Mine is a traditional plastic Nalgene that I’ve covered in stickers. I bought an easy-sip mouth piece so it doesn’t spill when I’m sipping on the go. 

19. Freeze little bits of peeled lemons, limes and oranges and use them in place of ice cubes — it’s refreshing and helps get in a serving of fruit. 

20. While at work, fill a big glass with ice and keep filling it up from the office water cooler. 


Stay Hydrated Everyone!
