During the winter months, I find it really hard to get enough water in my day. When I’m cold, I automatically reach for something hot like coffee or hot tea. Now that it is warming up, it is well past time that I improve my water intake. I know that when I do, I'll feel better and have more energy again. So I’m doing a 30 Day Hydration Challenge and I hope you’ll join me. The challenge goal is simple and straight forward as you’ll see. Plus to help encourage us both, here are a few tips that will get us drinking more water each day.
30 Day Hydration Challenge
The goal of the 30 Day Hydration Challenge is really simple.
Goal: Drink 64 ounces of water each day this month

7 Easy Ways to Increase Your Water Intake
- Start your day with a glass of water.
- Drink water before each meal or snack.
- Buy a water bottle you love (check out some of the hydration bottles we have) and carry it with you everywhere.
- Keep that water bottle or a glass of water within reach when you're working. You will find yourself sipping throughout the day and reach your daily goal.
- Jazz up your water with fruit or a flavor packet. One of my favorite combos is sliced strawberries and basil leaves.
- Drink water instead of sugary juices and sodas.
- Set a timer on your phone to remind you to drink water. It works!!
