5 Refreshing Ways to Stay Hydrated This Summer
#1 Make Fruit-Infused Iced Cubes
If you need a little flavor boost in your bottle of water, try pureeing some fruits and freezing the fruit juice in ice cube trays. It may add that flavor boost you need to keep sipping on water throughout the day.
#2 Sip on a Smoothie With Coconut Water
Coconut water is a great thirst quencher and contains important electrolytes. Try using coconut water as the base for your smoothies to give them an added hydration boost!
#3 Enjoy Water-Rich Foods
Foods like watermelon, cantaloupe, and peaches are all high in water content, making them a great addition to your diet this summer. You can enjoy them as a yummy treat or add them to your smoothies.
#4 Start Your Day With a Tall Glass of Water

If you tend to go all day forgetting to sip on your water bottle, try setting hydration reminders! This could be on your phone or even using post-it notes to remind yourself to hydrate. It’s a simple tip, but may do the trick to remind yourself to get hydrating!
