Other ways to hydrate without drinking water

Do you need to up your water intake and feel tired of drinking more water? If you do, here are a few simple ways to help you increase your level of hydration.

Eat foods with a high water content

Consider eating more foods that have a high water content. The foods with a very high water content usually include fruits and vegetables such as cucumbers and watermelon. Other fruits and vegetables such as carrots, grapes as well as apples also have a good water content.

An easy way to get in a good dose of these fruits and/or vegetables is to make a delicious salad so be sure to include one in your daily eating plan soon.

Opt for tea, not coffee

Caffeine has been known to increase one’s urination, thus possibly lowering a person’s hydration level. Think twice before having your next cup of coffee and consider having a cup of tea instead – the lower the amount of caffeine it holds, the better!
