You know that drinking enough water is extremely beneficial to our health. Drinking water has numerous benefits, such as clear skin, toxin removal, energy boosts, and headache relief. Yet, day after day you don’t drink enough. Whether you just aren’t finding the time, or water is too boring, you will benefit by increasing your daily water intake. Finding fun ways to drink more water will help you in your goal to keep your body healthy.
Infuse Your Water
There are numerous ways you can liven up your water. Adding fruit or veggies, even herbs, can take water from bland to grand. Some of the more popular choices are strawberries with lime, watermelon with mint, cantaloupe with honey, and lavender with blueberries.
Use a Straw
Not only are there some really fun straws available to make the kids (and adults) have more fun while drinking water, but drinking from straws actually makes you drink faster.
Make a Juice Soda
Decrease the amount of sugar your family drinks by adding sparkling water to your favorite juices. It’s a win-win because you lower the amount of sugary juice being consumed, while increasing your water intake. It’s a great way to satisfy a sweet craving, and increase the amount of water you drink that day.
Drink Hot Tea
Hot herbal tea is healthy way to increase your water consumption. Just be careful not to add too much sugar. Try using honey as a natural sweetener. Adding a cup, or two, of hot tea to your daily routine will boost your health benefits and help you get closer to your daily water goal.
Make Flavored Ice Cubes
Flavored ice cubes give your water a better flavor, while livening it up with a splash of color. A popular recipe is watermelon, lime and coconut water. If you’re making ice cubes for the kids, use their favorite flavor of Kool Aid. Have fun creating these or craft your own recipes. The possibilities are endless.
