New Delhi: Are you drinking enough water throughout the day? Well, most of us simply forget to do that but it is necessary if you want to maintain a well-hydrated state. We often avoid drinking water as we are too lazy to get up and pour a glass of water or to escape restrooms visits.
Here are some tips to help you increase your water intake stay hydrated throughout the day:
Keep a track of water intake
One can keep a track of the amount of water they are drinking throughout the day by the help of their mobile phone applications like Water Your Body and WaterLogged. Just set the number of glasses of water you want to drink daily and the app will send you reminders to drink water during the day.
Spice it up
If you can't drink glass after glass of plain water, you can always spice it up by squeezing some lemon into it. Lemon water is not only refreshing, but it also helps prevent dehydration or adrenal fatigue.
Eat water enriched foods
One should include lots of fruits and vegetables that offers a high percentage of water. And foods like watermelon, cucumber and tomatoes can actually provide you with 20 percent of your recommended daily water intake.
Include soups and juices in diet
Start adding soups and juices in your daily diet as it can help you increase the intake of water. Consumption of clear or broth based soups will not only rehydrate your system but also help you maintain a low-calorie count.
Take water break
