3 Ways To Make Drinking Water More Fun!

Did you know that it's generally recommended that you drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day…by the way…thats plain jane H2O…not tea, coffee, soda, lemonade, or even in my case- Kombucha-lol

If you're like me, water can get boring..and who wants to keep track of how much they're drinking..we have enough to do-right?! Luckily, there are easy ways we can spice it up, and keep track of our intake.

3 Easy tips to jazz up your water and get those ounces in by the end of the day.

  • Invest in a stainless steel or glass water bottle and know how much it holds and how many times per day you need a refill to get to your desired number..you’d be surprised at how helpful this is…

  • Or, invest in a  glass pitcher, fill it up per day with your needed water amount and then add fruit or lemon, keep in the fridge.. and cold refreshing agua is always at your fingertips…plus you know you need to empty it by the end of the day, and when ya do, you've achieved your daily intake..try lemon, watermelon, strawberry, even cantaloupe…I like to buy whatever organic produce is on sale and use that..then I get a new flavor often. 

  • Try infusing your water with essential oils..glass or stainless steel vessels only, as essential oils degrade plastic, and who wants to drink plastic?! Just 1 drop will do, and you will have to shake before every swig, as essential oils and water don’t mix, but heck, that breaks up the monotony-lol. 

More tips for adding essential oils to your water:

  • If you prefer a tad of sweet, add a few drops of honey to your water bottle, add a drop of essential oil, then fill your bottle up with water. This will help the essential oil mix in the water, but you still need to shake well before drinking. You can also purchase Stevia drops at your local grocery or on Amazon, and use that instead of honey to keep it zero calorie. 

  • Make sure you are using essential oils labeled for ingestion! I like Young Living's Vitality™ Line. You can use any essential oil labeled for ingestion...but some of them are too strong and don't taste good, for example-Oregano.

  • Any of the citrus oils are mild enough to use a drop and get away with it-haha! I also like to do a full drop of Peppermint.…and if you like Earl Grey Tea, try a drop of Bergamot.

  • Some essential oils taste good but a drop is too much, so you can dip a toothpick thru the orifice, then swirl the toothpick in your water bottle after ya fill it. Good examples of this are Cinnamon, Copaiba, Spearmint, Nutmeg, and Lavender. 

Everyones tastes are different, so pick an essential oil based on what you think you may like, and give it a try...if it's too strong, add more water.
