Water is the essence of life, but unfortunately, there are plenty of people who can’t seem to get the amount of water they need to stay healthy. Often times it is because these people don’t care for the bland taste of the water and they will favor sugary sports drinks or fruit juices. Those drinks can only get you so far. Your body needs water. Plain old water. If you are struggling to get your taste buds to cooperate, the following tips can help you spruce up your water and make it a little more palatable as well as refreshing.
- Get some mint leaves and crush them up on the bottom of the glass. Add water and you have created a refreshing and healthy drink.
- Add a slice of lemon or orange to your water for a citrusy taste.
- Caffeine-free herbal teas are also excellent ways to hydrate your body. You can get the minty flavorthis way or choose one of the fruity flavors like raspberry.
- Invest in a filtering system. Filtered water can certainly change the taste, which may be what you need. It also filters out some of the impurities that are in the water.
