Crisis in drinking the right amount of water

I have never had a problem supplying my body with the right amount of water. Recently, I began to notice that the skin on my face has become more flaccid, and the skin on the body, despite proper moisturizing with oils is still dry.

I didn't care and started to drop everything onto dry summer air. Only facial skin tests (click) made me realize that something is wrong. I started to analyze the amount of fluid consumed and it turned out that I actually have a big problem with it lately.
It started with the fact that in my previous job I didn't even have time to drink a sip of water, not to mention the fact that I came home more than once after eight hours without breakfast. My body started to give me signs that it couldn't go on.
Despite forcing myself to drink, I knew that I still did not supply the body with the right amount of fluid. I started to look for help.
With the help came to me the smartphone application "water your body", which not only shows how much we have behind us, but also how much is yet to come. I downloaded the application via Google play - the application is free, unless you want to hide ads - then you have to pay 21,99 PLN. In the application you can set a notification, e.g. every hour, which will remind us that it is time for another portion of water.

It can also be noted that we are people practicing sport (+ 15% water to drink) or it is hot (+ 10% water to drink).
By adding more drunk portions - we can modify the amount ourselves. It can be a glass of 300 ml or a bottle of 800 ml.
The application includes: a diary of drinking water, a water graph, as well as a weight report.
Apka is my great helper, especially now during the crisis reminds me how important it is to provide the body with the right amount of water.

6 ways to learn how to drink water

Can you not bring yourself to drink enough water? Are you still struggling with dry skin? This is a sign that you are drinking too little and that you need to change it.
how to learn to drink water
I have some tips for you on how to learn how to drink water. When you follow them, at some point it will get into your blood and you will not notice when you drank these 2 liters.
1. Keep water in a bottle or jug.
You don't necessarily have to buy a bottle of water every day. The bottle is so good that you can mark a measure on it, e.g. 1 / 4 bottles hours. 12: 00, which means that by 12: 00 you have to drink a certain amount of water. This will allow you to monitor the amount of water you drink.
2. Don't limit yourself to water alone.
The water is very healthy, but you should also drink herbal teas. The autumn and winter period encourages it to do so. However, I do not recommend drinking black tea, and replace it with the abovementioned herbal or fruit teas.
3. However, if you stay by the water ....
Maybe it is worth adding fruit to the jug with water for better taste? I recommend adding pieces of honey melon and a few mint or lemon balm leaves. Pride!
4. Put water containers and even glasses in view.
Thanks to this, every time you look at the cup you will take a sip of water. This is a psychological trick that will work out for us :)
However, if you can't mobilize it, maybe it is worth reaching for smartphone applications that remind you to drink water?
I recommend Water Your Body or Water Daily.
5. Avoid carbonated drinks, and if you reach for them, think of a punishment.
At the beginning, when I didn't like drinking water, and more juice from carton (thankfully I was never drawn to carbonated drinks), I came up with a punishment. For drinking each glass of juice, I had to drink two glasses of water. You won't believe how quickly I switched to drinking water.
6. Man gets used to good.
While I didn't like the water at first, now I can't imagine drinking anything else. At some point, my body probably got used to it and completely does not attract me to other types of drinks. Yes, sometimes I will drink a glass of cola. It is very effective for headaches or as protection against stomach flu. Otherwise, I don't reach for this kind of drinks, because the filtered water from the jug is very good water.
And how is your drinking water? Do you make a norm ?;)
