I don’t know about you, but it’s pretty customary for people to come up with goals, resolutions, etc this month. But inevitably by February or March, we fall off whichever bandwagon we desperately jumped on!
One of the most common resolutions I hear is fitness goals. More specifically, to drink more water.
Put your hands up if this is you!! #shameless
Listen, unless you’re drinking heavenly glacier water harvested by a burly Nordic god, drinking water all day long gets boring and old after a while.
The rest of us force ourselves to schlep around a gallon-sized jug with motivational scribbles written with sharpies on the side. Some are successful, some of us are not.
If you have a fitness goal that challenges you to drink more water, I’m going to help you to own it from the beginning! Although my little hack I’m about to share with you is not infallible, at least it’ll add a bit of pizazz to your fitness efforts and at the same time help you enjoy and benefit from herbal teas!
Before we dive in to how to use this tea hack, we need to go over how much water we should drink in the first place:
Ok, so here we go! Find a water bottle that is easily portable, fits in your bag (no milk gallon jugs!) and would only need to be filled twice or, at the most, three times. If you have a bottle that is convenient, it’ll help you stay on track! I typically use a Voss 850ml and only need to fill it 3 times to make sure I drink my prescribed amount of water. I’m good at counting only to 3!
Tip#2: If you like your tea more sweet, add your stevia or honey after you steep your tea and before you chill it. Have you tried adding honey to iced tea?!
Steep your favorite cup of herbal tea and experiment with the strength of the flavor that you like the most. Steep longer or with less water for a more intense flavor, or steep your tea with more water and a shorter period of time to get a mild flavor.
I hope this tea hack has been able to help you stay on track with your fitness goals! Comment below what your favorite teas are for using this hack!
