Fluid Retention – Tips to relieve excess fluid


Sometimes drinking our eight glasses of water a day can be a real challenge Here are some tips to help you Hydrate! Choose a few suggestions that make sense for your daily routine.

  • Have a big glass of water at every transitional point of the day: when you first get up, just before leaving the house, when you sit down to work, etc.
  • Make it convenient – keep a big, water bottle full on your desk and reach for it all day.
  • When you have juice (apple, grape, or orange) fill half the glass with water.
  • Have one glass every hour on the hour during the day. Set your alarm! When the day is done your water quota is met.
  • Substitute tea or coffee with a cup of hot water with a drop of honey and/or sliced lemon.
  • Drink with a straw – you take bigger gulps and drink much more.
  • Freeze little pieces of peeled lemons, limes, and oranges and use them in place of ice cubes – it’s refreshing and helps get in a serving or two of fruit.
  • After each trip to the bathroom, drink a glass straight away to replenish your system.
  • Drink two full glasses at each meal, one before and one after.
  • Carry a small refillable water bottle at all times and drink during downtime; while waiting in a bank line, sitting on the train, etc.
  • Use a beautiful gold-rimmed glass and fill it with cold water from the tap.
  • Drink two glasses of water immediately after waking up.
  • Take a 2 litre bottle of water to work and try to drink it all before you leave work. If you don’t finish, drink it in traffic on the way home – it’s like a race.
  • Always keep a bottle of water handy while watching TV, doing laundry, making dinner, etc.
  • Add drinking two glasses of water to your daily skincare regimen. Drink, cleanse, moisturise, etc., then drink again.
  • Get it over and done with earlier in the day so you are less likely to be woken up more times than normal during the night!
