4 tips for drinking more water

As we bleary eyed Aussies step outside tentatively as the Winter chill starts to lift, the cold weather certainly doesn’t help remind us to be sipping on a glasses of water periodically throughout the day. Most of us won’t drink in colder weather because we’re simply not thirsty. But it’s important to drink water no matter what the temperature is.

There’s something oddly satisfying about relieving yourself of a full bladder. It’s not only the, “Oh my gosh I feel 10kg lighter!” but it’s the small thought in the back of your mind that you’re going so much and it’s flushing your system out. No? Just me?

So I remembered an older blogΒ post the other day and it got me thinking about how much water we should drink for health in general. No it won’t scientifically help with your skin woes apparently.

Damnit

Our bodies can become so dehydrated it actually turns off the thirsty signal in our brains which is even more alarming.

Why Water?

  • Helps restore fluid to organs
  • Helps with energy levels and brain function
  • Flushes our urinary system of nasties and stops the potential for kidney stones
  • Helps us lose weight

I usually get in about 1.8 litres on a good day. Other days, a 600mL bottle. Oh the shame! If it makes you feel better I know someone who’s daily water intake was the quarter cup of the mug they filled with hot water with their morning coffee.

Creating habits for change,Β 4 tips that worked for me

  • Sip water before and straight after you’re about to do a task
  • Always keep a drink bottle of water in your bag, preferably a thermos drink bottle you can refill and it keeps your water cool as a cucumber
  • Set a bottle of water on a table close by so it’s visible, this will encourage you to drink
  • Make water the only available option in your fridge. Boring but it works.

Okay and yes it’s annoying to be running to the bathroom every 30 minutes as well, so I try drink most of my water throughout the day so it doesn’t interrupt my sleep.

Summer will soon be upon us in the southern hemisphere. Now’s the perfect time to practice drinking more water habits I’ve shared with you today.

How much water do you drink in a day? Let me know below.

Love your health.

My Blog

9 months ago, DMP Health was born. Part the reason? To help spread the word about my brand. Yes I have a brand if you didn’t already know.

I sell one, humble product. A gentle, microfiber facial cloth.

DMP 5

Reason being, when I was younger, I used the corner of my facial towel to help remove dead skin cells and it actually helped smooth my skin out. Turns out, Derms often will recommend a wash cloth, terry cloth, micro fiber cloth to gently exfoliate the dead skin cells on your face. So I thought, why not create my own?

It is available on the US platform only for now but, if any Australians are interested, I can possibly do a giveaway and/or post some towels out to those wanting to try it out.

I named my blog DMP Health partly with the help of my initials because it was hard to come up with a name, but also the fact that I wanted it to be focused on health in general. Some posts you find on my blog from now on may be ‘diary like’.

It may leave you wondering, “why is she posting such and such content?”

Bare with me as I try to explain. In my opinion, an online blog can be interpreted as a place where a group of people gather to read and discuss certain topics, which I’m all for in the skincare and beauty department. But I want to blog about my thoughts, maybe the happenings on my life, I want to be more personable.

You see, I have a lot of thoughts. A lot. And I have the time to express them in a healthier way than just in my mind where they tend to run circles around me.
