How do you get your eight glasses of water per day? With hot or cold drinks? Tea, coffee or fruit juice? Or plain, refreshing cold water? Most people have a favourite way of keeping refreshed, but the same old routine can get dull if it isn't shaken up once in a while. Provided below are some options for increasing water consumption, whilst keeping your daily drinks routine interesting. Cold water Head to your office water coolers with a large bottle or jug each morning and fill it up with the clear stuff. If you have a freezer or fridge at work that includes a freezer compartment, store some ice cubes and add them to your water for taste and chill. Why not add some other treats too? Perhaps some lemon slices or a splash of sugar-free lime cordial. Maybe even some mint leaves or crushed raspberries. Some people like to take supplements such as aloe vera juice and even vitamins diluted in their water. Why not experiment to find the healthy options that work for you? Hot water If the prospect of cold bottled water dispensers doesn’t appeal on a chilly morning, then rest assured that hot water is just as good for your health. Fill up a mug of hot water with a slice of lemon to start the day in the right way. Some nutritionists believe that it helps your body to return to its slightly alkaline natural state, and it certainly provides plenty of vitamin C, which may help to detoxify the body. Herbal teas are also very good for you and there are hundreds of varieties to choose from. Ingredients such as cinnamon, liquorice, ginger and cardamom are great on cold days and green tea is said to rev up the metabolism. Chamomile tea soothes and calms the system, whereas peppermint tea is refreshing and energising. Try different teas throughout the day depending on your mood and energy levels! Finally, remember that you can 'eat' water by consuming plenty of fruit and vegetables. This also happens to be a great way to get a hit of vitamins!
