How to stay hydrated this summer

Summer is here, and with hotter temperatures comes more time spent outside enjoying the weather. From going to the beach to spending time in the garden, being in the hotter weather also means an increased need for hydration.

We’re sharing five ways to stay hydrated, even in the heat of the summer, that doesn’t only involve drinking plain old water all day.

 

5 Ways to Stay Hydrated This Summer

 

#1 Sip on Coconut Water

Coconut water is one of nature’s most delicious and refreshing electrolyte replacing beverages! Many athletes rely on it to help replenish lost electrolytes during exercise. It also makes a great thirst-quencher and a refreshing way to stay hydrated this summer.

You can sip on coconut water plain or even use it in your favorite smoothie recipes. Just be sure to stick to unsweetened varieties!

 

#2 Add Freshly Squeezed Fruit to Your Water

Getting tired of drinking plain old water all day? Sometimes all we need is a flavor boost to encourage us to keep hydrated. Try adding a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice to your bottle of water for an added flavor boost.

Feeling fancy? Make a pitcher of cucumber and mint water and enjoy throughout the day.

 

#3 Make Homemade Iced Tea

Store-bought iced tea often contains added sugar, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this summertime favorite! Try making your own by brewing black tea, letting it cool, and then serve over ice with some freshly squeezed lemon juice and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.

You can do the same thing with lemonade — just use filtered water, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and pure maple syrup for a tasty way to enjoy lemonade the healthy way.

 

#4 Make Fruit-Infused Iced Cubes

Here’s another hack to jazz up your water a bit. Try blending up some fresh berries with filtered water and freeze in ice cube trays. For a real summertime treat, try watermelon to add a flavorful punch and add the ice cubes to your glass of water.

 

#5 Invest in a Water Bottle With Time Increments

Life is busy, and it’s easy to forget to sip on water when we have a million other things to do. But, if you make a water bottle with some time increments, you may be more likely to stay on top of your daily water goals.

You can easily find these online, and they make a great reusable water bottle option, so you’ll be cutting back on plastic waste at the same time.

 

Make Hydration a Priority This Summer

It’s important to stay hydrated all year long, but the heat of the summer is an even more important time to talk about how to stay hydrated to help prevent dehydration.

So, if you’ve been struggling to stay on top of your daily hydration goals, use these five simple hacks to help you stay hydrated all summer.
