5 alternatives to staying hydrated other than just drinking water

There are other ways to stay hydrated other than through drinking water.

Unfortunately, some people tend to forget to drink water or may choose other alternatives that aren’t healthy.

Another reason may be the fact that drinking too much water can cause one to constantly go to the bathroom which can be annoying.

While there is no permanent substitute for water – and not supporting there to be one – there are other alternatives that provide hydration other than water.

Check them out below.


92 percent of watermelon is made up of water which makes it a great candidate for hydration.


Cucumbers are 96 percent water. So, if you don’t have water with you, you can always carry around cucumbers to snack on in order to stay hydrated.


Create smoothies with fruits that contain a lot of water such as watermelons, pineapples, oranges, blueberries and plums for example.
