INFUSED WATER

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!

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.
