A plentiful dose of water each day will detox your body from the inside out and will help flush out unwanted toxins, metabolise fat easier, build muscle and increase cognitive and nerve functions. With the recommended daily intake of a whopping eight glasses a day, this is often easier said than done (unless you spend your day at the kitchen sink). Here are our top tips to give your body the H20 it needs to function at its best and to sip your way to a healthier day!
Incorporate water into your daily routine
Your morning and evening routines probably consist of a specific set of actions to ease you into the day or into a restful nights sleep. Try to glug one glass of water before you brush your teeth in the morning and evening to incorporate more water into your daily routine. Like magic you’ll have two glasses down and only six to go!
Take a bottle with you wherever you go
Pop a bottle in your handbag, gymbag or on your desk at work to sip the day away. What’s more? If you have a sizeable bottle on-the-go, you won’t have to refill every hour or go on the hunt for H20 so you can get even more ticked off your ‘To Do’ list!

Tempt your tastebuds into drinking more water by adding a handful of fruit to your bottle. Add a splash of lemon to your morning beverage to kickstart your metabolism and help cleanse your liver. If lemon is too tart for your taste, try a delicious strawberry and lime combo. Strawberries are brimming with anti-oxidants while limes are an excellent anti-aging weapon due to their restorative properties for hair, skin, and nails.
