As healthy as water is, it’s not always easy to force ourselves to drink it. For some, it’s a divine gift from the heavens, but some others don’t quite see it that way. We’ve been programmed in our modern society to crave something sweeter, or something more interesting. So if you’re having trouble drinking water but want to stay hydrated, here are some good alternatives.


Sometimes it’s not that you need your drink to be sweeter, but rather just need something with a bit of kick. Soda water offers that with its crisp carbonation, and it’ll be just as sugarless as regular water.

Vitamin Water

Just because you drink some sweet doesn’t mean it has to be loaded with sugar. Many vitamin water drinks offer a much more subtle approach to sweetened water, and throw in a handful of vitamins too. This is an excellent option for those who find water a bit too bland.

Flavored Soda Water

This is a natural combination of the previous two options on this list, and it’s a great one at that. Not only are many flavored seltzers healthy and low on sugar, but they give drinkers a carbonated kick as well as a subtle, tasty flavor.
