To get something you have never had,
you must do something you have never done
Oh boy! let me confess, I struggle with drinking water. Actually, I struggled, I am doing much better now. I used to find water somewhat tasteless but that is not the purpose of this post.
I made a resolve to drink more water in July and to hopefully make it a habit. Now in order to make it easy a friend of mine Shikoh, asked me to try it for 21 days and I will see some improvements. I am so grateful I followed her advice. I am sure that I am not alone in this; water can be tasteless and boring, and so I went on a search for ways to make drinking water a bit more fun.
I have been reading about infusion and want to share with you 3 fun ways that you can drink your water. I read that, this way, we can trick our minds into taking more water by simply adding a piece of fruit or vegetable into the water. This not only increases the vitamin levels in the water but also helps us take in more and more of this precious liquid.
Water Infusion Recipes
Strawberry and Ginger
This is perfect blend of antioxidant meets anti-aging agent. Strawberry are excellent anti-oxidants and as we know Ginger is an immune booster. This was the first recipe I tried and it had me drinking over 2 litres in a day.
Oranges and Raspberries
Raspberries have anti-inflammatory properties while Oranges are rich in vitamin C. Drinking water with this combination help us fight infections among other benefits.
Cucumber and Mint
Cucumber is both hydrating and refreshing and also flushes out toxins. Now mix this with mint which aids in digestion and your water has more benefits.
I also downloaded this App to help me track my water intake. It calculated how much water I require based on my weight and notifies me by making the sound you get when pouring water into a glass. Trust me you cannot ignore this sound.
I hope I keep this up. I have made it till day 7 and I have not looked back and hope to see more positive changes, especially on my skin. Would you take on this water challenge? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
