Water hacks for busy engineers.
Everyone knows how important drinking water is.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who find it difficult to drink the necessary amount of water everyday.
Some find water not suitable to their taste, or their schedules are just too busy that they forget to drink water throughout the day.
Lack of water in our bodies could lead to different medical problems. With this in mind, here are some tips on how to get you to drink more water.
1. Find a drinking buddy
Find another water-phobic friend and have water-drinking goals together.
It’s just like having an alcohol- drinking buddy, except you’re drinking for healthier goals.
2. Add some flavor into your drink
Add a bit of lemon juice into your drink, or any citrus fruit juice, just to transform that flavorless liquid into something that will suit your palette.
3. Add some chunks of something
Natural flavoured water is becoming a thing now. You can add frozen fruits like watermelon, strawberries, cucumbers and even mint leaves. They can also help detox your body.
4. Sleep next to a glass of water
Sometimes we wake up in the middle of the night thirsty, and we get too lazy to stand up and get water from the kitchen so we just go back to bed and wake up sallow and dehydrated.
Having a glass of water by your bedside table will help a lot.
5. Invest in a water bottle
Get a water bottle that’s visually appealing and at the same time functional, that way you’ll be more tempted to drink more often.
You will also be helping the environment, since you won’t be buying bottled water.
6. Mark your water bottles
Engineers are familian in marking lines, whether in construction or manufacturing of cars.
You can also mark lines on your bottle indicating the number of times you should be drinking throughout the day. 1 line for every hour during office or school hours.
