Everyone knows how unappetising a big glass of cold water can be on a freezing day.
It is quite different from enjoying a refreshing, ice-cold drink on a hot summer’s afternoon, but there are plenty of other ways to drink more water during the winter months.
Exploring some of these ways can really boost your mental and physical well-being.
The human body consists of 70% water, which is why the H2O that a person drinks from bottles, taps, office water coolers or hot water dispensers, affects every function in his body from brain to toe!
People very quickly start to feel the effects of dehydration too, as symptoms such as tension headaches, poor digestion and aching limbs are all too common.
Try hot drinks from the office hot water dispensers to get your intake on a cold day.
Herbal teas, green tea, fruit teas and coffee substitutes are ideal. Even a cheeky mug of hot chocolate counts towards your water intake!
Consume more water in the form of hot soups, stocks and broths; these have the added advantage of providing lots of vitamins and minerals to help you ward off winter colds and to keep you in top condition.
Continue to eat lots of fruit and vegetables too; hot fruit compote with oats for breakfast will provide you with water and a great range of beneficial ingredients! Equally, a bowl of fresh watermelon and grapefruit will provide lots of water and a fresh salad will too.
Try combining a fresh salad with a hot chicken breast, or as a side dish with a bowl of chilli con carne to combine water-rich foods with vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients.
