1. Make it appealing
Ever noticed how you are motivated to hit the gym when you are wearing cute workout clothes, or how you feel more inclined to spend time at your desk if it is less cluttered? This technique also works when it comes to water. Pick a cute water bottle, or a chic pitcher to keep yourself excited about drinking from it through the day.
2. Add natural flavours
Make your own ‘spa water’ by adding slices of fruit, or herbs – a practice that also has the benefit of making water look aesthetically pleasing. Try mint, lemon, watermelon, raspberries, thyme, or cucumber.
3. Treat it like an appetiser
To control your appetite, and eat smaller portions, make it a point to drink a glass of water before every meal. Often, our bodies confuse hunger with thirst, and you may find yourself satisfied — or at least, less ravenous — after sipping some H2O. Cheers to a slimming tactic that doesn’t include cardio.
