How to stay hydrated without drinking water (The Mirror)

There are times we don’t feel like drinking water yet we need to keep our bodies hydrated. The good thing is that to keep your body hydrated, drinking water is not the only way out. Whether it’s sickness, medication, pregnancy or whatever reason that doesn’t allow you to drink water, you can always use these tips to stay hydrated all through:

1. Cucumbers

This vegetable is 95% water. You can eat it in salads, make a smoothie with it or simply eat it as a snack. It will save you from dehydration.

2. Watermelon

This succulent fruit is also a great way to hydrate your body. Besides keeping you hydrated, watermelons are also loaded with nutrients that your body needs. Other fruits that are high in water content include; strawberries, grapefruits, cantaloupe, peaches and dragon fruits.

3. Coconut water

Not everyone will find the taste of coconut water pleasant. But if you don’t mind it, it’s a good way to stay hydrated.

4. Freshly squeezed juice

Some people find water to be tasteless. If you are one of them, that should be no excuse to get dehydrated because you can always drink freshly squeezed juice. Make a glass of orange juice or make a cocktail with your favourite fruits.

5. Eat salads

Adding some green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, celery and broccoli helps you obtain nutrients while keeping your body hydrated at the same time.

6. Soups and stews

Drink up that bone broth, chicken soup or vegetable soup. The water in it counts too when it comes to hydration.

7. Drink milk

Get your calcium and protein while keeping hydrated by drinking milk.

Of all the above options, you can’t lack one that will suit your preference to ensure you achieve your daily recommended water intake.
