Water is so incredibly crucial to a healthy body. It helps with circulation, digestion, weight loss, it removes toxins from the body and helps with daytime fatigue. In the past I have had so many issues with drinking water regularly and honestly drinking enough water is the first real step to beginning a healthy lifestyle.
I have found, especially in little children, that adding fruit really helps motivate drinking! Each herb, fruit and vegetable that you add also gives your water additional health benefits and detoxifying properties. I have made it a part of my everyday lifestyle now to add a little something extra to my water – It’s added flavor and appearance make it appealing and it is honestly so fun to shop around for new things I can add!
A few recipes I love so far:
Strawberries and Mint (My favorite!)
Cucumbers and Raspberries
Lemon, Lime and Mint
JUST cucumbers (Good for post-workout)
Along with infusing your water, a water bottle that you really like can make a huge difference in how much you drink water. I LOVE my glass Voss bottle, just because it has the perfect sized spout, holds a nice amount of water and I feel pretty fancy having one (Even though they are only $3 at Natural Grocers ). So go out and buy yourself an awesome new water bottle and some goodies to throw inside and drink, drink, drink!
