What if you could sharpen concentration, improve mood, reduce hunger, and prevent headaches all with very little effort? Look no further than your water glass.

I just have to get my fluids? That’s right, this often overlooked step to improving health is easy to do and all sources of water count. This means that fluid-rich foods are a great way to get hydrated.

Fluid-rich foods: Here are just a few foods that make it easy to get fluids in your diet.

  • Watermelon
  • Raw tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Celery
  • Broccoli
  • Raw kale
  • Cooked quinoa

Am I getting enough? Tracking water consumption can be tough, and it isn’t always necessary. Fluid needs vary person-to-person, day-to-day, and season-to-season. It’s a good idea to start the day with a glass of water. Even before your coffee! A simple way to tell if you’re getting enough is the color and smell of you urine. Not what you were expecting? Rather than keeping track any other way, this just requires a little observation.

Fun water tips and tricks: Plain water can get a little boring, so if you’re looking for a way to add some excitement to your glass, try spa water. Put fruits, veggies and herbs in a pitcher with water and put in the refrigerator. The possibilities are endless. Add jalapeno to spice things up, literally.

  • Strawberry basil
  • Orange ginger
  • Pineapple chili
  • Apple rosemary
  • Cucumber basil
  • Pear cardamom
