Bored of Just Plain Old Water CPM .. This Blogs for You …
We all know the importance of dehydration,
When we’re properly hydrated:
- We think more clearly
- Our muscles work better
- Our mood improves
- And our bodies stay healthier
but water can get so mundane and boring. My clients are constantly ask me what else I can drink besides water to still hydrate me, but keep it spicy too …
Here are my top 5 tips to drink to change it up and keep it fresh and new.
#1 Flavored Water: Along with keeping you hydrated, sparkling water, whether flavored or plain, can also help ease stomach discomfort, nausea and bloating, Flavored water is also a great supplement for all you soda lovers. I am a carbonation lover, so this was a great healthy alternative and satisfied my soda need.
#2 Hint Water: I love this brand of water. It is delicious with no sweeteners, calories, or preservatives, it gives you just what you need to make you feel like you are drinking a little treat and keeping you hydrated and healthy all in one.
#3 Iced or Hot Tea: brew yourself a cup of tea. Good options include chamomile, peppermint or nettle tea, and for hot summer days, cool them in the fridge for a homemade iced tea. Again, there is no limit to the choices and varieties of teas you can drink. Mix them up so that you’re never bored with the taste. More importantly, you will provide the body with the fluids and hydration it needs even if you’re not a “water drinker”.
#4 Coconut Water: Coconut water is an excellent way to rehydrate the body, especially after exercise. The coconut contains minerals and vitamins to restore fluid balance, and electrolytes. Make sure your coconut water does not contain added sugars or processed ingredients.
#5 Fruit and Veggies: Much of the water we take in each day comes from food. You can ensure proper hydration by eating foods that have a high-water content such as: cucumbers, celery, spinach, watermelon, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, and cantaloupe. These fruits and Veggies are made up of 90 – 95% of water. Now you have a wide variety of snacks that will hydrate your body and your hunger.
