A while back, I asked y’all to help me come up with ways to try and trick myself into drinking more water. Homie Rin commented with a pretty genius hack for getting herself to drink more water. But, the beauty of this hack is that it can be used to influence ANY kind of behavior you want to encourage!
And it uses pretty bracelets to get ‘er done…
I’m super crappy at drinking water, so I had to hack too. I made myself eight pretty bead bracelets (red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, purple, pink — a rainbow!), and when I get dressed I slip them onto my left wrist. Each time I drink a glass of water throughout the day I move one over to my right, so I can see I’ve drunk at least eight glasses a day. I don’t always manage it, but the visual reminder makes it much more likely.
This bracelet idea could work with reminding yourself to take medications, to get up and stretch your legs for office worker-types, or reminding yourself to just think positive thoughts throughout the day.
What would YOU use this bracelet hack for?
