7 Dazzling ways to get in the habit of Drinking Water
Updated: Sep 1, 2020
Love watching running water on the Internet? or were you watching a live stream.
See what I did there?
What keeps a duck floating above water?
LOL! That's rib-tickling.
Water is so spellbinding in its own ways, isn't it?
Not because, water allows the body to absorb minerals, vitamins OR
water flushes out toxins OR
water helps to regulate body temperature OR
water acts as a lubricant for joints and muscles
But because we can come up with such funny one-liners and puns which are hella hilarious!
Coming back to the square one,
Let's talk serious,
I'm not going to preach facts and information about how drinking water is good and how it can change one's life because we all are already aware of it.
But I'll rather focus on what's important that is,
We all know we should drink a specific amount of water- 'THIS' many ounces per day or in layman words XYZ number of glasses.
We do create a drinking schedule but it does it really last more than a week.
No one talks about "How" to DRINK MORE WATER.
Let's learn and adopt these 7 TOP AND EFFECTIVE ways or 'lifehacks to be precise' to trick your brain to drink more water!
SHRINK IT SOMEWHERE SECRETLY IN YOUR ROUTINE
If you are a morning person, a professional, and a disciplined human then it's going to be very easy for you to do this hack-
Make up your damn mind!
If you have a habit of drinking tea or coffee every morning then make sure you drink a glass of water with it. If you are someone like me, not so professional, not a consistent morning person or anything that even defines discipline, then don't be gloomy.
Here's what you can do,
Make sure you keep a glass of water on your side table near your bed every night without fail and as soon as you wake up drink it before you start scrolling your Instagram.

BUY A CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER BOTTLE
Buy a transparent water bottle and a permanent marker and mark the timings on it with an interval of nearly 1.5 hrs. Now, where you have marked timing is the level you need to finish the water till that time. Stick an inspirational sticker or image onto it for further motivation.
The more you bond with your water bottle, the less likely you’ll be to lose it. Don’t forget to refill it as soon as it’s empty.
TRICK AND TREAT METHOD
"Gamifying"(is this even a dictionary word? Nevermind, it is.)
Gamifying things around you can make stuff a lot easier and fun. Giving yourself a target to complete a particular task will create a positive cloud of competition around you. Treat yourself with something good that you don't easily get,
Here I'm not talking about fancies like gifting yourself a car for consistently drinking water for a week (unless you are someone with riches)
No, instead buy a book you always wanted to read or visit a place you always wanted to go. That sounds more reasonable and real to me.
