6 Ways To Drink More Water This Summer, Because Staying Hydrated Doesn't Have To Be Boring

1. Infuse your water

There are infinite options when it comes to infusing flavors into your water. Natasha’s Kitchen comes up with this amazing flavor combination of watermelon and basil, which I’m dying to try. 

2. Try alternative waters

The Kitchn says that Aloe Vera water packs plenty of benefits and is full of vitamins. Try it after your hot yoga class for the restorative benefits of your sports drink, but without all of the added sugar. 

3. For a spicy kick, make cinnamon water

Because it’s sugar, spice, and everything nice. Check out the recipe over at The Kitchn. 

4. Use flavored ice cubes

These floral and fruit-flavored ice cubes are practically begging to be dropped into your glass of water. And they look pretty, so there’s that.

5. Brew iced tea

No, bottles of sugary-sweet iced tea don’t count. Brew it at home for the most benefits. Try this cinnamon-orange iced tea recipe. 

6. Invest in a big water bottle

Some say you should be drinking half of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should be chugging 75 ounces of water a day. That’s like three Camelbaks — keep one at your desk, and sip on it throughout the day.

Are you thirsty yet? Get drinkin’!
