New Year-New You-New Water Habits: 5 Ways to Drink More Water

2017 is here! Are you ready for a new year? I know that I am and I am so excited to see what this year brings for me. We all know that a common New Year's resolution is to get more water in everyday. Who doesn't need to drink more water? I know that I say that to myself every year and I make that promise that I will drink more water.

I do pretty well with getting all of my water in each day and this is because I follow these five tips on a daily basis. These tips help me manage my water intake and make certain that I never get dehydrated.

5 Ways to Drink More Water

1. Get a water bottle and take it with you everywhere.

This was the first step that I took on my journey to health and wellness. For the past year, I have gotten in 60 ounces of water every single day. I bought myself a stainless steel water bottle that keeps ice frozen and water cold for at least 18 hours. I can have ice cold water any time of the day. If you see me in person, ask to see my water bottle because it's always with me.

2. Use a fitness app to record every 8 ounces that you drink.

This is another tip that helped me tremendously. I use this more when I travel because I am never certain how much water I am getting so the app tracks it all letting me know when I am properly hydrated.

3. Try flavors.

My mother had the hardest time drinking water because she just didn't like it. There are countless flavors now available for your water to make it taste pretty much any way you want. My favorite is to add fresh fruit or cucumbers to my water. My mother and kids love the little flavor bottles that you can grab at the store.

Before I eat, workout or pretty much do anything, I drink an entire glass of water. I have found myself eating much less food and feeling full for much longer.

5. Get PUR for your home.

We have been using a PUR water faucet filtration system for years and I just know that this has definitely helped my family drink more water. The clean, refreshing taste of our water is something that my family and I love.

New Year-New You-New Water Habits: 5 Ways to Drink More WaterWhy PUR?

Did you know that your water goes on a long journey before it reaches our faucets? Water comes from the source treatment center and goes through miles of decaying pipe before picking up all sorts of minerals and contaminants. We use PUR because I feel that it protects my family from all of those contaminants in the water.

PUR Ultimate and PUR Advanced systems feature PUR MineralClear® filters. These filter water over natural minerals for a crisp, refreshing taste. Plus, these new faucet filtration systems provide consumers with a variety of affordable options.

With concerns about water quality in our nation being at an all time high, PUR has a filtration system with Bluetooth making it easy to track your water intake, see your filter usage and more.
