Good morning! Do you ever find yourself feeling dehydrated, or like you really need to be drinking more water in general? Our bodies are made up of up to 60% water (and a larger percentage in certain organs). That's a really large amount! It is so important to stay hydrated because it helps your brain function on a higher level, flushes out body waste and toxins, helps to deliver oxygen to the body, and so much more. I get it, sometimes water can be kind of blah, (and frankly I would rather have a latte at times). Well, today I am here to share a few fun, delicious, and invigorating ways to drink more water!
- Reduces inflammation
- Aids in digestion
- Cleanses your system
- High in antioxidants
- Helps regulate blood sugar
- Great for reproductive health
Basil and blueberries
- Great for your skin (basil)
- Stress reliever (basil)
- Helps with PMS (basil)
- Can help with your memory (blueberries)
- Improves urinary function (blueberries)
- Reduces muscle damage (blueberries)
- Lowers blood sugar
- Protects against infections
There are a ton of ways to infuse your water! You could also add mint, other types of fruit, apple cider vinegar, coconut water, and so much more! As you can see, I use my Blender Bottle a lot! This one is 28 ounces, and I probably fill it up at least 3-4 times per day (even more lately because it has been so dang hot). Having my water in a bottle (as opposed to a glass) really helps me drink more. Is anyone else like that?
I hope this was helpful, and I would LOVE to hear new water infusing ideas! Leave me your tips and tricks in the comments.
P.S. There is a super awesome interview coming tomorrow morning! You will definitely want to read it! ;-)
