Why drink more water?

  • Increased energy
  • Healthier, glowing skin
  • Better digestion
  • Improved concentration

How much do you * really * need?

It can vary based on your specific health needs, but typically somewhere between 8 - 12 glasses a day.

How should you drink it?

Drink water at room temperature in the morning; it aids digestion and helps relieve other aches and pains throughout the day.

Cold water is, you guessed it, best for the post-workout cool-down.

- Here are a few ways to get your day H2Flowin' -

Throw some fruit into the mix

Add your favorite fresh or frozen fruits, cucumber and mint, or use sparkling water if you're looking to switch things up.

Let it sit overnight in the fridge for best results.

Ditch the morning coffee for hot tea

Even though it doesn't have quite the same kick, I've recently been loving green tea with breakfast.

When I first made the switch, I'll admit, it took a few days to adjust, but I noticed a change in my mood and energy level in the morning, and I didn't have to keep refueling to keep myself going throughout the day.

Green tea also helps reduce the risk of certain heart issues, promotes healthy cell growth - which can fight off illness, and even reduces stress.

If none of the classic methods are cutting it, you can also "eat" your water

  • Cucumbers
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon
  • Celery
  • Carrots

All of these fruits and veggies are over 90% water-based, so munchin' on any of these can be another great way to get some of the same benefits in snack form.

- How To Keep It Going -

Invest in a reusable water bottle

It will help you stay motivated to stick with it on a daily basis, not to mention the environmental benefits of ditching the disposable plastic.
