How To Stop Procrastinating Your Hydration
You’re procrastinating your hydration when you postpone replenishing the fluids in your body. Learn how to improve your water intake with easy tips.
We don’t postpone going to the restroom, do we?
If it’s time, we don’t challenge our body because the results wouldn’t be in our favor.
While it sounds funny (or gross), why don’t we take another physical necessity this serious too?
For example, our hydration.
Why don’t we make it a priority too?
Yeah, I’m talking to you, busy-bees and workaholics.
How many days do you spend without drinking much water? Or even the minimum?
And did you know that dehydration is bad for your productivity?
Before moving forward
Before I continue, I think it’s important to mention different approaches to hydration.
As important as the resources shared in this post, take into consideration your needs.
When in doubt, consult your healthcare provider and stop any regimen if you feel unwell.
Above all, my methodology, Mindful Planning, takes into consideration the specific needs of each individual.
What works for me, may not be the best option for you, and vice-versa.
For instance, my hydration consisted of soda and other caffeinated drinks until my late 20s.
Only during my years in Bikini Fitness Competition, I learned how to drink water.

Back then, I got accustomed to drinking 2 liters every single day, and I must say, it worked for me.
Note that I did experience muscle cramps from time to time.
Yet, I can’t say they were 100% caused by the “excessive” water intake.
In fact, I didn’t have any migraines for years.
With that said, specialists are sharing their findings and concerns on over-hydration.
Either way, as usual, it’s vital that you get informed and listen to your body.
Find out what works best for you.
You still need water
Whichever approach you choose, keep in mind that you need more water and less sugar.
A soda or a fruit juice can feel refreshing, but they shouldn’t be your primary source of hydration.
On the other hand, it’s better to avoid them.
Save sugary beverages for “special” occasions.
To make sure you get the fluids you need no matter how busy you might be, keep a water bottle close to you.
Going out? Why don’t you bring a small one with you?
There are countless models on the market.

Also, don’t underestimate the power of tracking your water intake.
Whether you’re going for 1.5 liters or 2, don’t lose sight of it.
Many of us can end up drinking a lot less than we need because we get distracted with “life.”
Even if you opt to go over the average, you don’t want to exaggerate.
How do you know you’re on a healthy path?
Try keeping track of it.
No more procrastination
Remember that our body consists mainly of water.
Yes, it adapts itself depending on the situation.
Still, you don’t want to test your limits on a regular basis.
Don’t be afraid of experimenting.
Use the Mindful Planning methodology to learn about your optimal hydration level.
