“Drink more water!”
We hear it all the time, yet still, we never quite get to those recommended 2 liters a day in. The truth is that there are so many benefits to drinking water that range from things like keeping your skin hydrated for that bright glow to improving fatigue, maintaining regular digestion, and promoting muscle recovery to boosting your overall energy. Of course, we all find excuses as to why we don’t consume enough water on any given day, but being more mindful about your water intake can help you achieve those much-needed health benefits!
No water, no problem!
Did you know there are other ways to intake water that don’t include drinking it? Here are a few things you can do to help keep hydrated
- Eat more veggies! Yes, I’m speaking to you as I talk to my children. Stick to fruits and veggies with higher water content like watermelon, cucumbers, melon, grapefruit, grapes, zucchini, or tomatoes
- Make Your Own Popsicle- now this is what I’m talking about! Homemade water popsicles are packed with valuable water content. Stick to a recipe that is more water-based than juice like these refreshing Fruity Ice Pops
- Infuse the water you drink! Water doesn’t have to be boring, and you can personalize it with the flavors you love. For the tangy lovers, grapefruit or orange works great or go for mixed berries if you want a sweeter taste. Whatever you do, invest in a good reusable infuser
Did you know? Most people need about four to six cups of water each day, but you should always check with a medical professional to determine the right amount of water intake for you.
If you’re the kind of person who needs the constant reminder and feeling extra boujee invest in a smart water bottle
