Everyone knows how important water is to our general well-being, but some of us can’t stand the taste. Take a look at these ways to make water taste better.
I’ve written a lot about the importance of drinking water. Not only is water essential to your survival, but it helps you feel better—mentally, physically, emotionally, and relationally.
When we don’t get enough water, we may often find that we don’t feel our best in other areas of life as well. So what’s the fix?
They say it’s so simple—just drink more water.
And I’m raising my own hand!
We’re not talking about the bad rep of Dasani – but rather the fact that water is just boring to some people.
When you need to drink more water but don’t like the taste of it, there are still ways to get it in. In fact, there are plenty of ways to make water taste better. I’ve listed a few of my favorites below. Check it out!
One of my favorite ways to spruce up the taste of water is with a couple of fresh ingredients. The most basic way to do this is by adding in a bit of lemon. Yep, you simply add in a couple of citrus drops – or even up to half a lemon – to get rid of that plain “water” taste.
If you don’t like the idea of having chunks in your water, then you can get that same delicious taste with some flavor extracts. Those same flavors that they put into your drink at Starbucks, you can get for your water glass at home. I recommend sticking with the fruit flavors when it comes to enhancing your water. But if you use the sweeter version, go light with how much you add.
My last idea for different ways to make water taste better is to try opting for sparkling water. Though you can still add in some of the above ideas, many people enjoy the taste of plain sparkling water more than the taste of plain regular water.
The bubbles tend to mask the taste of water you don’t already like, but sparkling water can also help you transition to the idea of drinking plain water—and not hating it.
Hopefully, these ideas help you start drinking more water in the future and give your body the sustenance it needs to survive and thrive.
