Learning to Drink the Right Amount of Wateradmin
We tell you how to teach yourself to drink enough water.
We all know very well about the rule of two liters, but not all of us know how to adhere to it. Still – two liters of water seem to be almost impossible in volume, and, nevertheless, to drink two liters and even more is quite real. The fact is that our body consists of water at 70% percent, that is, the liquid for us is an inalienable substance, and dehydration threatens with very severe consequences.
While life-giving moisture enriches the body, cleanses internal organs, fights against edema (the main signs of dehydration), removes toxins, and also has a very beneficial effect on the external condition of our body – it contributes to weight loss and clean, radiant skin. All the magical properties of water will be available to those who learn to drink it correctly and in the right quantities.
According to various studies, the habit appears in the period from twenty-one to thirty days, that is, you have a conditional month to learn how to consume water correctly. First question: how to secure that same habit? To do this, you need to perform a few simple steps.
So, for example, try to associate drinking with some everyday action. Thus, you can accustom yourself to drink a glass of water immediately after waking up, as soon as you turn on the computer at work or are going for a lunch break. Let your water intake be related to the point events of everyday life. Do not forget that you can’t sit at a table without water, even if there is always a carafe of water in the visibility zone (this applies to the time you spend at home) or a bottle. However, nutritionists do not recommend drinking food: it interferes with the proper digestion of food, so that having poured water for yourself, set aside a glass for the duration of the meal and empty it at the end.
Paradoxical as it may sound, many of us are not at all accustomed to drink water. We replace it with anything – juices ( read also : “Cleansing with juices: the main mistakes and how to fix them” ), tea, coffee or any other drinks. Such a substitution is fundamentally wrong. However, it will be very difficult for you to switch to water right away, moreover, it can even harm the body.
You should go through a gradual substitution: mix fifty to fifty water and your favorite juice in a blender (it doesn’t matter if it is fresh orange or strawberry nectar), believe me, you will hardly feel any difference, but you will bring significant benefits to your body. Every day, increase the dose of water, so it will be much easier for your body to switch to a new regimen.
Another important aspect is that water should always be available. Otherwise, if you should go, for example, to a store for a bottle, you will find a thousand excuses to postpone your shopping trip, prefer to drink tea or coffee, which does not replace ordinary water at all. So get a cooler at home.
And for a greater effect, place decanters with water, both in the kitchen and in the rooms – now even if you are lazy, you don’t have to go far and you will no longer have reasons to skip drinking. As for the time spent in the office, for this case you need to get a small bottle, which should always be in your bedside table or drawer – this is at your discretion.
At first glance, it may seem that all types of water have the same taste. In fact, this is not so at all: filtered water is much more fresh than boiled, spring water has an unusual taste with acidity, and carbonated water is slightly brackish. Of course, the tastes of water differ not so clearly as, say, tea, but, nevertheless, there is still a difference.
If even after a second tasting the water still seems tasteless to you, try to find another solution. For example, you can add a slice of lemon to the water ( read also : “9 reasons to start drinking lemon water” ). On your figure, such a cocktail will not affect in any way, but on taste sensations – even how. You can do the same with mint, grapefruit or orange, the main thing to remember: there should not be any sugar in the water, otherwise your weight loss will turn into useless entertainment.
