4 Expert Tips on Why Not Drinking Plenty of Water Causes Aches and Pains

Lately, I have been worried about something that might surprise you. It is not the usual concerns that keep me up at night – like work deadlines or life's everyday challenges.  

No, my recent preoccupation is something most of us tend to overlook staying properly hydrated.  

You might be thinking, "Why on earth is a physical therapist so concerned about water?"

Well, let me explain. 

Have you ever experienced those days when your body, leaving you feeling like a car with a low fuel tank running on empty?  

Those moments when every step feels like a chore, and even the simplest tasks become daunting?  


In this blog, you will find out more information on Why Not Drinking Plenty of Water Causes Aches and Pains


It is a feeling I am all too familiar with, and it often stems from something as basic as not drinking enough water. 

As we inch closer to the holiday season, I cannot help but think about the consequences of not drinking enough water.  

It is supposed to be a time of joy, laughter, and togetherness, but dehydration can turn it into a painful ordeal.  

Imagine traveling to be with your loved ones, sitting on planes, and carrying luggage, all while battling body aches and pains that make every moment a struggle. 

Even the simple pleasures of holiday preparations become a challenge. Cooking and cleaning for family gatherings, being more mobile due to increased socializing, decorating the house, putting up the tree, and stringing lights – all these activities should be exciting, not dreaded because of nagging pains. 

So, here is the thing: not drinking plenty of water can lead to aches and pains that interfere with our lives, especially during the holiday season.  

Fear not, I am here to share four expert tips on how to make drinking water a habit that could save you from a world of aches and pains and help you get back to enjoying life to the fullest. 


Here are 4 expert tips on How to Make sure you are Drinking Plenty of Water

Tip 1: Water with Purpose 

  • Let us face it; we are all creatures of habit. One of the easiest ways to make drinking water a daily routine is to attach it to activities you already do without fail.  

  • For example, every time you check your email, take a sip of water. After every bathroom break, replenish your body with a glass of water.  

  • This not only helps you remember to drink but also makes it part of your daily rhythm. Before you know it, you are hydrating like a pro. 

  • Why is this important? Well, because when you are properly hydrated, your body functions optimally. It lubricates your joints, cushions your organs, and helps maintain healthy skin.  

  • So, by making drinking water a habit, you are ensuring that your body has the support it needs to keep you moving pain-free. 


Tip 2: Flavored Fizz 

  • For some, the taste of plain water can be unappealing. If that is the case, consider adding a little flavor to your hydration routine.  

  • Infuse your water with slices of lemon, cucumber, or fresh mint for a refreshing twist. You can also opt for sparkling water to satisfy your craving for fizz without resorting to sugary sodas. 

  • By making water taste better, you will be more inclined to drink it regularly. And remember, when your body gets the hydration it needs, you will find yourself moving more freely and with less discomfort. 


Tip 3: Set a Timer 

  • In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it is easy to lose track of time – and water intake. So, why not set a timer on your phone or watch?  

  • Every hour, when the alarm goes off, take a few sips of water. It is a simple yet effective way to stay hydrated throughout the day. 

  • Do not underestimate the impact of regular hydration on your body's ability to ward off aches and pains 

  • When you are properly hydrated, your muscles and joints are more supple, reducing the risk of discomfort during physical activities. 


Tip 4: The Power of Accountability 

  • Sometimes, all we need is a little nudge to stay on track.

  • Share your hydration goals with a friend or family member and encourage them to join you on this journey.  

  • You can even make it a friendly competition – who can drink the most water in a day? Having someone to hold you accountable can be a powerful motivator. 

Now, as you embark on this mission to make drinking water a habit, remember that it is not just about staying hydrated. It's about the freedom to enjoy life to the fullest, without the constant worry of aches and pains getting in the way.
