How To Make Sure You’re Drinking Enough Water

Ever feel like you’re not drinking enough water? You’re not alone. Water is super important to keep our bodies functioning properly. It’s like a natural cleaner, flushing out the bad stuff and keeping our temperature just right. Plus, it helps us avoid annoying problems like kidney stones and constipation. We lose water all day through sweat, breathing, and… you know…the usual bathroom stuff. And if you’re in a hot place, you lose even more. So, it’s really important to keep drinking water to stay healthy.

What is the right amount?

Everyone’s hydration needs can be different depending on things like how active they are, their health, and the weather. If you want to check if you’re getting enough water, keep an eye out for a few things like peeing every couple of hours, feeling good, and not being thirsty all the time.

Should I only be drinking water?

Staying hydrated is important, and drinking any liquids can help you achieve that. But did you know that water is usually the best choice? It’s free (if you’re drinking tap water) and doesn’t have any sugar. Plus, there are other yummy drinks you can have like fruit juices, coffee, sodas, and tea (in moderation ofcoz 😋). Just make sure to drink enough fluids to keep yourself properly hydrated!

How can I drink more water?

Whether you’re at work or school or out in the field, make sure to keep a cup or water bottle nearby, and take a few sips of water throughout the day.

Also, whenever you see a drinking fountain, take a quick sip of water. It’s an easy way to stay hydrated!  If you get bored of drinking plain water, you can spice things up by adding a slice of lemon, lime or other fun fruit to plain or sparkling water.

The benefits of drinking water are endless and it’s the easiest way to stay healthy.
