Drink More Water

#GerakanMinumAirPutih is a hastag made two days ago on my twitter account and this was because of Wien. Well, actually this was due to my previous post about “Pentingnya Kesehatan/Health is Important”. I wrote about how important it is to drink water each day (not color one though).

I admitted on that post that I didn’t do much exercise lately. I used to swim at least every two weeks and walking around my residence twice a week. Worsen, I also drank less water than it should be. Human should be drinking around 2-3 liters a day (please scratch the notes on previous post – I wrote 8 liters a day wkwkwk). But I think I only drank around 1,5 liters a day.

Less Drink More Problems

gerakan minum air putihIf we are talking about alcohol, the lesser our drinking habit, it would be good. But if we talk about water, it would be bad. Very bad. Due to my habit, drinking 1,5 liters a day, lately I felt many problems. My body ached continuously, especially around waist.

I read several articles and found that waist ache usually because I didn’t drink enough water each day. I remembered also about a co-worker who had a problem with her kidney due to this same habit.

Gerakan Minum Air Putih – Drink Water

So, now… in order to live healthier (and also afraid of Wien), I want to do some changes about my drinking habits. I drink at least a cup of coffee each day, sometime more than 3 times a day. I can’t (or perhaps won’t) change that coffee thingy. But I do realize how much I drank water before – this the one I really need and HAVE to change.

I want to drink water more frequently and hopefully achieving the target amount based on my body mass. Thus, I pledge for the Gerakan Minum Air Putih (Drink Water) and also downloaded an apps for drinking reminder.

Ios Apps For Drink Water Reminder

I am a lazy prick who easily forget to drink if I don’t have someone to remind me *searching mode on…* As mentioned by Wien on my previous post, I downloaded “Drink Water Reminder” on my Iphone.

Turned out that the application is quite different with the one in the Android (different developers perhaps). But it does come in handy, at least for me who easily forget. It has several features to help me.

Feature #1 – Body Mass vs Amount Water

The first feature is if we register ourselves in, it will calculate how many water we have to drink each day, based on our body mass. We input the weight and height on our profile and “BAM” the total water we need to drink each day appears.

For me, with the large body mass – I need to drink 3,9 liters of water every day. Hmmm…. quite a lot right, no wonder I experienced aches before.

Feature #2 – Reminder To Drink

In order to fulfill Gerakan Minum Air Putih, like I said, I need a reminder. This application on iOS helps a lot. We can set interval of reminders we need, whether every 2, 3, 4 or 6 hours. Well, because I really need reminder more often, I set the reminder every 2 hours.

Features #3 – Monitoring Target

As we already had the target amount of drinking water, we now only need to drink water more routine and monitor our target. Just swipe the amount of water we already drink each time. As simple as that.

Gerakan Minum Air Putih – For A Better Life

Wuoooo gaya bener… But it’s true. We need drink more water for a better and healthier life. That’s also written on the application. I read the facts of drinking water and its use, apparently, I was really wrong all this time and ignoring the importance of drinking water.

Do you want to join Gerakan Minum Air Putih? You can mention me on the twitter (@feb_ryan24) and let’s have a great life by doing so. This post also for the BEC’s Challenge – EF#32 Make Us Curious. Now you know I am doing Gerakan Minum Air Putih a.k.a. Drink Water More because I want a healthier and better life. 😀
