7 easy ways to stay hydrated.

Your body is approximately 60% water, which you’re usingand losingall day as you sweat, breathe, metabolize food, and use the bathroom. Water helps keep your body cool, lubricate your joints and tissues, and more easily digest food.

When you don’t have enough water, you can experience headaches, fatigue, and dizziness. Your body may even react to your medications differently.

Luckily, there are simple steps you can take to make sure you stay hydrated.

Explore edible hydration.

Lettuce, melons, cucumbers, berries, bell peppers, and celery all contain water. Make a delicious dip for your water-packed veggies with this simple hummus recipe.

Sip sparkling beverages.

Swap soda for bubbly water. With so many brands and flavor options available, it’s easy to find one you love.

Infuse some fruit.

Add some sweet or zingy pizzazz to your water glass with these fun fruit and herb combinations.

Set small goals.

Focus on progress, not perfection. Aim to drink a certain number of ounces per hour or by lunchtime to slowly reach your personal goal.

Caffeinated drinks can count.

As you track your ounces, remember to include your caffeinated tea, coffee, and water in your
total. Limit your caffeine intake to less than four cups per day.

Drink while you dine.

Sip water while you eat to help your snacks and meals go down (and out) with ease.

Take water on the go.

Find a bottle that fits your personality and activities. Choose fun features—straws, wide spouts to easily add ice, carrying handle, and crossbody straps—to make staying hydrated effortless.
