In addition to being encouraged to exercise or move more, increasing our fluid intake is another simple way we are encouraged to help improve our health and wellbeing.
I recently came across these water bottles from HydrateM8. These bottles have graduated timings printed on them which allows users to monitor their water intake on a daily basis ensuring gradual and consistent levels of hydration. Recognising that there was no way I was drinking enough throughout the day, I invested in one.
I’m a sucker for targets and goals, (I’ve worn an activity tracker for years and love being measured!), so this water bottle has been great for me! I think I’ve gone from drinking about 500ml to 2 litres + a day!
The added bonus of increasing fluid intake throughout the day, is the resultant increase in trips to the loo. Subsequently, this means I’m getting up from my desk and moving more throughout the day! Win, win!
I have no choice but to take the stairs to the ladies, but if you have a choice or stairs or lift, or could walk to a toilet a little further away from your nearest one, this is another way to increase your activity. It may sound insignificant, but you’d be amazed how these little bursts of activity can add up over time!
