5 Hydration Hacks to Quench Your Thirst 💧
We all know the importance of staying hydrated, but sometimes chugging plain water can feel a bit, well, bland. Fear not! I've got five hydration hacks up my sleeve that will make sipping water as exciting as a tropical vacation. Get ready to quench your thirst with style!
1. Infused Water: Fruit Powder
If plain water seems dull, consider infusing it with natural flavours... Fruit Powders are an easy way of adding a natural burst of flavour to a boring glass of water. They also provide additional nutrients. Feeling fruity? Stir into smoothies for extra nutrients!
2. Eat Your Water:
Not all hydration needs to come from beverages alone.... Many fruits and vegetables have high water content, contributing to your overall fluid intake. Incorporate water-rich foods like watermelon, cucumber, celery, and oranges into your diet. These not only keep you hydrated but also provide essential vitamins and minerals for overall health.
Herbal tea is a delightful and hydrating alternative to plain water, offering a diverse range of flavours and health benefits... Many herbal teas, such as chamomile, peppermint, and hibiscus are believed to contribute to overall well-being not just hydration! The warmth of herbal tea can be particularly comforting, making it an inviting choice for those seeking hydration while indulging in a soothing an aromatic beverage.
4. Do The Maths:
Everyone is different and has different hydration needs... For instance, athletes will need to stay more hydrated than someone who does minimal activity... An easy rule of thumb is to divide your body weight in half and aim to drink that many ounces of water each day!
5. Body Signals:
Be mindful of whether your body is thirsty or hungry. Sometimes we overeat because we mistake thirst for hunger. Try drinking a glass of water before each meal to help you stay hydrated and to help your body digest better! Top Tip: Swap high sugar drinks for sparkling water.
