5 Easy Ways to Drink More Water- add more H2O to your routine with these easy tips!
The benefits of staying hydrated have been proven time and time again. Proper hydration has been scientifically proven to do everything from increasing energy levels and brain function to preventing and treating headaches. Still, many of us have trouble meeting the daily H2O requirements. When surveyed, nearly 80% of working Americans say they don't drink enough water!
In an effort to get my family to drink more water, I teamed up with Primo® to test out one of their water dispensers, and share my 5 Easy Ways to Drink More Water.
Using the Primo Refill Stations
Primo offers both self-serve and pre-filled water exchange at convenient locations across the US. Use the store locator to find the location closest to you. Simply bring your empty 3 or 5-gallon bottle and either refill it yourself or exchange it for a new bottle of water. You can purchase a non-spill cap which makes transport easier and you won’t have to worry about spills.
If you are exchanging your water bottle, the old one can be recycled at these Primo stations.
Choosing the Right Water Dispenser
After thoroughly checking out all of Primo's dispensers, I chose Primo’s Pro Series Bottom Loading Water Dispenser. The bottle is stored conveniently on the bottom, which means there's no lifting, tipping or spilling!
There's an empty bottle indicator that lets you know when it’s time for a new bottle of water. The large 3 or 5-gallon bottles cut down on single-use bottles and the unit is Energy Star rated, which saves money on electricity.
The slim design is ideal for my small kitchen and there's even a spot on the top for a coffee brewer that frees up counter space!
5 Easy Ways to Drink More Water
Have Great-Tasting, Quality Water on Hand
According to Primo, bulk water users consume as much as 25% more water than non-bulk water users. We all started drinking more water as soon as I set up the dispenser! Primo water goes through a multi-step purification process that includes reverse osmosis removing chlorine, bacteria and parasites, heavy metals and other contaminants giving you purified water that tastes delicious! Seeing it in the kitchen is a constant reminder to fill up our glass. My older son can't reach the faucet, but he can easily fill up his cup with the Primo dispenser. He enjoys this new independence so much that he's frequently filling up his cup and drinking it.
For Every Cup of Coffee Drink One Glass of Water
This is an easy way to add more water to your day! Every time you drink a cup of coffee, follow it by drinking a glass of water.
Get a Refill as Soon as it's Empty
Re-fill your bottle or glass as soon as you finish it. This way you won't put it off or forget.
Use a Marked Water Bottle
A water bottle marked with ounce indicators is a great way to keep track of how much water you are consuming.
Keep Water Bottles Filled up Around the House and in your Car and all your Bags
This is one of my favorite hacks for drinking more water. If a water bottle is in my vicinity, I will drink more. I keep extra bottles in the car for me and the kids, so I don't have to worry about forgetting them when I'm running out of the house.
