How to increase your water intake
We all know we should drink more water…so why do we find this so hard?I really should drink more water and I do try.I have bursts of doing really well and then I forget and it tails off.I also spend a lot of time trying to encourage my family to drink more water. This doesn’t work with them all. One of my children, my 6 year old drinks lots of water, in fact he is brilliant because even if he is offered juice 9 times out of 10 he will opt for water….fantastic!My 8 year old is a different story, she really struggles with drinking water, like me. She will say it’s boring or it doesn’t taste very nice and she would rather go thirsty than drink water some days.I was so excited to discover Stur – this is a water enhancer that comes in loads of different flavours and makes drinking water much more interesting, without compromising on the health benefits.
