Orthopedic Doctor Offers 4 Easy Ways to Drink More Water, Honolulu, Hawaii

Drinking water is important for your health, not only does it keep you hydrated, but it controls nearly every process and system in the body. If you’ve visited an orthopedic doctor recently, they may have advised you to drink more water to boost your musculoskeletal system and help with treatment of an injury. If you’re struggling to get your eight glasses in a day, try these four tips to get more H2O.

4 Tips to Drink More Water

1. Dress Up Your Pitcher

If you have trouble drinking water because it’s bland, try adding some fruit to your water to give it a subtle flavor. Not only do fruits like lemons and berries give your water a boost of flavor, but it also encourages you to drink more to try out new mixes and varieties.

2. Drink While Exercising

Try drinking some before, during, and after your workout to ensure your body stays hydrated and your muscles remain strong. Talk to your orthopedic doctor if you’re concerned dehydration is negatively impacting your musculoskeletal system.

3. Drink Water Before and After Your Meal

One of the easiest ways to drink more water throughout the day is to drink a glass before and after each meal — this means breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Be aware that an extra cup of coffee or soda requires more water for your body to digest, which means you’ll need to add more H2O into your diet if you regularly drink these items.

4. Have a Glass After Every Bathroom Break

Whether you’re at work or simply at home, make a habit of drinking a glass of water after every bathroom break. Sometimes remembering to drink water can be difficult when you have other tasks to complete, so whenever you get up and head to the bathroom, refill a glass or grab a bottle out of the water cooler.
