Summer is here folks! The weather is starting to heat up and we need to make sure we’re staying hydrated so we won’t pass out!

If you don’t like drinking water or need to increase your water intake, check out these helpful tips to get you on track!

1. Eat Your Fruits and Veggies

You can keep your body hydrated by consuming fruits and veggies that contain 85 percent or more water. Even though fruits are great sources of water, they’re also high in sugar and can have unwanted calories if you eat too many.

Veggies with high water content:

-cucumber

-celery

-radishes

-tomatoes

-cauliflower

-spinach

-broccoli

Fruits with high water content (eat in moderation)

-watermelon

-strawberries

2. Limit Alcohol Intake

The more alcohol you ingest, the more your body will become dehydrated. When you consume alcohol, urination occurs more frequently. This causes the body to lose more fluid which in turn causes dehydration. If you decide to drink alcohol, make sure to drink water in between your alcoholic beverages.

3. Add Flavor!

To make your water more enjoyable, squeeze lemon and/or lime juice into your water. It gives it a much more pleasant taste! Citrus fruits not only make your water taste better, it also a good source of vitamin C, improves skin quality, freshens breathe, and aids in digestion!

4. Dilute Your Drinks

If you can’t resist the urge and have to drink juice or a sugary beverage, water it down a bit by adding water to your drink! Try going for a half water, half juice ratio so you can still taste the sweetness but can also have the dose of water that your body needs.

5. Track Your Water Intake

If you have a hard time drinking water, try using an app to remind you when to drink your recommended cups of H2O!
