It's warming up, and that means that summer is here! We finally get to have some fun in the sun and leave the cooler spring days behind! That means that it’s also time to break out the sunscreen and up your water intake. As much as we love the sun, no one likes having to deal with dehydration, so staying on top of how much water you’re drinking throughout the day is a must for having a successful summer.
With all of the summer fun you’re sure to be having, it can be easy to forget about your water intake goals. Truthfully, we have just as much trouble staying hydrated as the next person. This is why we scoured Pinterest for some fresh ways to dress up our water to make it a bit more fun!
Check out our top 7 new favorite ways to jazz up your water and stay hydrated this summer! P.s- number 7 is our favorite, so read to the end!
1. Raspberry & Mint
One of the most classic combinations for fruit water, the raspberry and mint combo is refreshing and crisp, adding a fabulous layer of dimension to your water. Want to pump up the flavor? Add your raspberry and mint to a mug of water and let it sit in the fridge overnight- let those flavors seep in!
2. Mint & Lime
Nothing says “summer” like some fresh citrus. Throw a handful of mint leaves and some lime in your water to welcome summer. You can either slice up your limes or cut them into wedges, squeezing the juice out of the wedges before tossing them in for a stronger taste of lime. You can’t go wrong either way!
