4 Easy Ways to Stay Hydrated This Summer

4 Easy Ways to Stay Hydrated This Summer

We all know the importance of hydration, but the question is, how do we stay hydrated without feeling water-logged or sprinting to the loo 24/7?

Here are 4 easy & fun ways for staying hydrated this summer:


  1. Make sure you drink enough - but pace it!
    Duh! That's an obvious one...or is it? Most people know they need about 8 glasses of water a day but that doesn't mean you down a whole pitcher and you're done! Your water intake should be spread out through the day like your meals. Perfect segue to tip # 2:
  2. Keep a re-usable bottle handy
    If you have a bottle within arms reach, you're more likely to mindlessly sip from it without having to make a conscious effort to get up and grab a sip. It also helps curb hunger and excessive snacking!
  3. Infuse it!
    Berries or cucumbers, whatever your thing is, infusing your water with fresh fruit/veggies can make a delicious & refreshing beverage! That way you're less likely to reach for a soda and won't end up consuming any artificial flim-flam (sweeteners, preservatives, colours etc.)
  4. Eat your way to hydration
    Only 70-80% of your daily hydration needs to come from water, the rest you should actually EAT! That means whole fruits/veggies. Munch on our top picks for maximum hydration and minimal bathroom sprints:

    97% water: Cucumbers
    95% water: Tomatoes, radishes
    93% water: Red, yellow, green bell peppers
    92% water: Cauliflower, watermelon
    91% water: Spinach, strawberries, broccoli
    90% water: Grapefruit

Happy hydration!
