Increasing your H2o Intake: WAter You Waiting For?
As the infamous heatwaves threaten to scorch us this summer, we must fight back with a wave of our own. Here are a few ways you can get the most water in your system while having the best summer:
- Eat Your Water Instead- Who said water is only for drinking? Eating water-rich fruits and vegetables like watermelons, cantaloupes, cucumbers, and tomatoes can give you the benefit of hydration with a kick of delicious flavor!
- Flavor Your Water- Speaking of flavors, why not infuse slices of your favorite fruits or vegetables with the bland flavor of water for an extra pleasant sip? Trick your mouth by adding slices of strawberries, lemons, limes, or cucumbers to water for a refreshing new taste of water. Or, try sparkling water to fizz things up. You’ll forget you were ever even drinking water!
- Drink Your Water with Straws- Studies show that drinking through straws actually help you drink more at a faster rate. So, fill your cups up with water and stick in your favorite straw for fast and fun hydration!
- Record and Reward- Keeping track of the water you consume is a good way to create goals that will motivate you to drink more water. There are many apps available that help you keep track of your water consumption, ensuring that you stay hydrated. Yet, if you still need some more motivation, try rewarding yourself with something like a snack, after you complete every goal. That way, you will definitely drink more water!!
Increasing your water intake has never been more fun! Follow these tips to stay hydrated and be entertained for the rest of the summer!
