Friendly Competition Anyone?
If you’re having trouble getting the right amount of fluids your body needs each day, try increase the fun by challenging a coworker, neighbor, friend or loved one. It will help you get the job done AND who doesn’t love a little competition?
Get started this weekend! See who can finish their recommended daily fluid intake the most days in a row. Try to check in with each other to see which of you can drink the recommended amount each day throughout the next few days. As a reminder, it’s 15.5 cups/124 ounces for men and 11.5 cups/92 ounces for women.
A little competition is motivating for a lot of people. Studies show that competition:
- Satisfies the need to win
- Provides an opportunity or reason to improve performance
- Motivates people to try harder
Want to up the ante? Broaden the competition! Ask more than just one person to participate or form teams. Use the social media icons on the left side of this page to share this post with others you would like to join you. They can join us for week two of the challenge by signing up here.
