Plan Your Hydration

Most of us have had some practice at meal planning and preparation. We realize the importance of planning our meal times in order to make life go smoother with less stress and yet healthier for us and our family. In fact Cr8 Your Plate is a Meal Planning service.  I've written many posts on Meal Planning and how to make it easier and faster.  Hydration is also a subject we are familiar with. We know the importance of drinking water for our health, for weight loss, for our body's to function properly and overall well being. Yet we fail to plan for hydration. We just know we need to drink water and we should drink more than we currently do. 

Let me encourage you to plan to drink more water. Similar to planning to eat healthier, we need to prepare for it. 

Simple steps to drink more water.

  1. Cut up lemon or lime to keep in the fridge to add to your water 
  2. Know how much water you want to drink each day.
  3. Use a pitcher or a specific water bottle to help you measure that every day.
  4. Buy a water bottle to take with you when you are away from home.
  5. Sample other flavorings or a mixture of flavorings to add to your water. 

Planning and preparing to drink more water doesn't have to take long but a few minutes to prepare will make getting in that water easier. Let me know what you do to help you drink more water. 

To Your Best Health,

Coach Nancy
