Drinking enough water, especially on hot summer days, is extremely important for our body, for our energy levels and brain function. In case you’re struggling to drink enough water throughout the day, here are a few ways to hydrate your body besides drinking water.


Try to eat a bowl of soup for lunch every day in summer because this is a healthy and hydrating dish. Soups packed with veggies will help you up your water intake and stay hydrated.

Fruits and Veggies

Fruits that are rich in water are definitely a great option for hydrating the body when you’re bored of drinking plain water. Watermelon, strawberries, peaches, mangos, cucumbers, and oranges are all water-rich fruits and veggies that you can eat or add to your smoothies and salads.

Coconut Water

Coconut water is another healthy and refreshing alternative to plain water that’s rich in electrolytes and, unlike most other drinks, it low in calories.

Ice Pops

Treat yourself with delicious frozen treats that will keep you hydrated on hot summer days. Ice pops with fresh fruits are super easy to prepare at home and it’s a great dessert to have on hand.
