3 ways to make drinking water more fun!

Having trouble staying hydrated? Trouble getting your kids to drink their water? Here’s 3 ways to make drinking water more fun! (Applies to adults too!)

  1. Personalize your water bottle: Preferably choose a reusable water bottle made from stainless steel or glass (avoid plastic due to cancer causing chemicals which leech into the water). For children, decorate their water bottle with fun stickers or write their name with a creative sticky label. For adults, perhaps adding a positive quote or affirmation to keep you motivated while at work. Every time you look at your water bottle and read the positive message it will be reinforced! Some examples of positive affirmations are, ‘Keep calm and carry on’, ‘You are beautiful and loved’, ‘#bosslady, getting stuff done!’. Basically, whatever floats your boat and matches your unique personality!
  2. Turn drinking water into a game: Mark the water bottle from top to bottom with the hours of the day. This gives you a visual target for how much you should have drank and by what time. For children, you can mark specific points in the day like first recess, lunch, second recess, on the bus, etc. If you finish your water by the end of the day reward yourself with something positive. For children, rewards could include stickers, dollar store toys, or an extra 5 minutes of screen time.
  3. Add flavour to your boring old H20: By adding berries, lemons and limes you can infuse your water with some flavour and extra nutrients. Be creative with cooling cucumber or herbs like fresh basil and peppermint! Some water bottles come with a diffuser down the centre for fruit or tea. Having your children participate in choosing the flavours they add to their water includes them in their own healthy choices and teaches them the importance of self-care.
