It’s no secret how important staying hydrated is for our health. But, what do you do if you hate the taste of plain water? With so many of today’s water alternatives being packed full of sugar and chemicals, staying hydrated the healthy way can seem like a challenge. Until now.

Stay Hydrated Without Sugar

Here are some top tips on how you can easily stay hydrated without resorting to sugary sodas and spending a fortune on over-priced flavored waters.

Add Natural Flavorings Yourself

While this may seem obvious, you’d be surprised at the number of people who avoid doing this—simply because they think it’s too much effort.

The fact is, adding natural flavor to plain drinking water at home is super easy. Simply chop up a bunch of citrus fruits like lemon, orange, or grapefruit, and let them steep for 10-15 to infuse your water. Then when you come to drink it, you’re left with a tangy flavor that will completely transform the boring taste!

Use A Fun Water Bottle

Think about it. If you’ve got a cute, vibrant water bottle as opposed to a boring plastic one, you’re much more likely to carry it around more often, right?

By switching to a water bottle you’re proud to have as an accessory, you’re going to be much more motivated to drink out of it. Add your natural flavorings, transfer the water into your bottle, and you’re certain to drink more without forgetting.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

Did you know most fruits and vegetables are mostly made up of water? Just because they’re considered a solid food doesn’t mean they can’t keep you hydrated.

Full of flavor, super healthy and able to fill you up too, including more fruits and vegetables into your diet is a great way to increase hydration – without having to actually drink anything!

And there you have it. Some simple ways to make sure you stay hydrated and healthy without being forced to drink the plain water you hate.
