Start Drinking More Water with These Hydrating Hacks

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Jul 25, 2018 11:49:00 PM
Navitas-Blog-Hydration-Hacks-WEBSorry to say it, but if you're like most people, you probably don't drink enough water. In fact, a full 75 percent of us don't get the recommended 8-10 glasses a day, according to doctors. And while the risks that come with chronic dehydration are severe – mental fog, toxin accrual and ultimately, even death in very severe cases – with all the benefits of incorporating a steady stream of fluids into your day, it's a wonder why we need any motivation to take a drink in the first place! That's because staying properly hydrated means you'll enjoy a litany of healthy rewards, including more youthful skin, faster recovery, enhanced cognition, balanced weight and keep literally every cell in your body in better shape. If you're ready to turn over a new leaf when it comes to drinking water, read on for some helpful hacks to make consuming those extra ounces easier than ever.

Make a Spa Water
This trendy trick is often used at spas to help encourage guests to detoxify by – you guessed it – drinking more water. By adding slices of citrus, cucumber or fresh garden herbs like mint or basil to a large pitcher, “spa water” is essentially a fancy name for an infusion. As it sits, the water becomes enveloped with a hint of the flavor of the added ingredients, making it more alluring to your taste buds. Try it at home – a “spa water” usually takes a about an hour for the flavors to infuse, and can be refrigerated and enjoyed for a day or two.

Motivate with Nutrition
Part of water's problem is that, well, it's just water. And though water may be absolutely essential to our health, you can make it more exciting by adding bonus nutrition through the use of superfood powders. Add small amounts of your favorites directly into your water bottle, like Maqui Powder, Wheatgrass Powder, Pomegranate Powder or even a Superfood Boost mix. They won't really change the flavor much, but by making the mind feel like the beverage is “more valuable,” (and in fact, it is), you're more apt to finish every last drop, while getting needed micronutrients at the same time.

Try Adding Bubbles
With it's refreshing experience, carbonated water can excite your palate enough to make drinking water a habit you crave. Whether it's just plain water with added fizz or a flavored sparkling water, these drinks have soared in popularity as of late due to their enjoyable tingly mouth-feel and are good news to hydration-seekers. One caveat: carbonated drinks like sodas or ones with added or artificial sugars, should be avoided due to sugar and chemical content – stick to waters with or without natural flavorings.

Use a Calibrated Canister
Are you a goal-oriented individual? If so, you may want to consider keeping your water in a calibrated canister. What makes this method so attractive is you can measure your water intake extremely accurately, while setting short-term hydration marks to meet for the day. Try aiming to drink two of your 32-ounce canisters a day or make it a game by setting a target of 16 ounces every three hours. Regardless of how you “play,” aim to have an empty bottle before you go to bed!

Eat Fresh
Fruit and vegetables may not come in a cup, but they're incredible sources of naturally occurring, micronutrient-rich water. It may be hard to measure their water quantity by way of ounces, but eating more produce in general is a great way to ensure you meet you hydration needs and then some. Smoothies, superfood lattes, low-sugar juices, teas – they all help, too. In other words: it all adds up!
