Ways through which you can ensure adequate water intake during winters
Summers are fun as you get to enjoy the evenings out till late, but winters call for “tied-up at home” evenings because of the low temperature. Both the seasons have their pros and cons but there is something you need to be extra careful about in winters – water intake.
On a summer day, you will automatically reach out for that glass of water but it is not the same when it comes to winters. It becomes difficult to keep yourself hydrated and increase water intake during winters, mostly because physical activities don’t tire you or sweat you out and you just assume you can reduce the intake of water.
Don’t forget that water not only keeps you hydrated but it helps your body function properly. Drinking water keeps your immune system up and running. Drinking water also increases metabolism and keeps you feeling full for longer time. Sure, we all understand the importance of water intake during winters and may even vouch to remember and follow it but, it could prove to be easier said than done. Here are some easy ways that will ensure you maintain a good amount of water intake during winters.
1 Hot beverages count
There is nothing as comforting as a hot tea or coffee on a cold winter morning. It is simply heavenly! You can replace the milk tea with black tea, as it increases metabolism and contributes in water intake. During the day, you could drink hot water with lemon and honey instead of trying to gulp down just water. Start your day with a glass of hot water and lime, this will not only keep you refreshed and energized but also help in weight loss and glowing skin. Make sure you drink water prior to any meal as this helps curb your appetite and keep pace with the health goal of ‘eight glasses of water a day.’
