Simple tricks to drink more water, faster.

We all know drinking water helps our skin look great, that's not news. Drinking water is also essential to our overall health.   I don't know about you, but even though I love water, there are times when the last thing I want is a glass of tasteless water so these simple tricks help me, and now you, get your daily 8 glasses.

#1 Drink it through a straw.  Especially when you really are in no mood for water, drinking it though a straw will help you chug it quicker. 

#2 Add fruit to it!  Kind of like a virgin Sangria, you can add a bunch of berries and diced fruit to a pitcher, let it sit for at least an hour then drink from that. 

#3 Essential oils. I carry around lemon essential oil in my bag so if I buy a bottle of water when I'm out and about, I add a couple of drops to it and it's so much easier to drink. Lemon isn't the only kind of oil you have to use, you can try grapefruit, lavander, chamomile, lemongrass, etc. Just make sure you are using a high-grade, edible essential oil. I only recommend Young Living, you can sign up to become a member and buy all your essentials oils at wholesale pricing here.  Here is my member number, you'll need it to sign up: 1398185

#4 Extracts. Same as the lemon oil, I sometimes add peppermint extract to a glass of water with a couple of cucumber slices. It's super refreshing in the summer or when I'm feeling dehydrated. 

#5 Tea. Winter is a harder time to drink water so a nice warm cup of tea is a nice change from cold water in the winter months. 

Also, if you feel thirsty, it's too late, you're already dehydrated so chug chug chug your water.
