Everyone gets dehydrated, that's a given. And dehydration means you have to drink a whole lot of water in order to keep yourself hydrated. But what to do if you find yourself getting bored by drinking water? Here are a few alternatives as to how you can keep yourself hydrated. The creativity is the key!

The moment you get thirsty, you are dehydrated. Each and every day, you lose water – when you sweat, when you go to the bathroom when the temperature changes. Anybody who does high-intensity training (HIIT), hot yoga or is alcohol loving will be a lot more susceptible to dehydration.

If you are not able to focus, then it's a sure sign that you need to drink water. Even if you like you are confused or are getting forgetful; then it's best to drink more as dehydration can trigger brain fog.

Since our body is made up of around 70% water, hence, it goes without any saying that it is involved in everybody functions. Your body will try to compensate for your lack of water by trying to get moisture from any source of liquid in your body.

Proper hydration can help the kidneys to regulate and excrete excess fluid along with ensuring that the body is balanced. Not only that, it is in fact, water, which helps to deliver the nutrients to your cells along with contributing to keeping the nails healthy and not to mention, shiny hair.

There are many people who keep themselves dehydrated without ever realising it.

This can not only have long term effects on your skin and hair, but it will also affect your overall health. Even if you use all the lotions and hydration creams in the world, they won't work if you fail to keep yourself hydrated.

So, eat a whole lot of good and varied food, get enough exercise, take in fresh air and drink plenty of air – after all, you are worthy!

There are ways as to how you can boost your water intake –

  • Do try to aim to drink at least two to three litres of water every day. That goes more so if you are prone to drinking caffeine. Don't forget to keep a bottle of water with you and drink your liquids throughout the whole day but yes, not in between meals.
  • Water, right? Sometimes, you are bound to get bored by it. In such cases, do try to add fruit, herbs or even spices in there. You also have the option of freshening it up with some mint or you can even go the lemon way (what's better than to add a few drops of lemon in your drinking water). Go on, don't be afraid to experiment you water and if needed, flavour it up.
  • Try to ditch the plastic as it is not good for the environment and your overall health as well. It leaches harmful chemicals in the water that have the ability to mess up with your hormones. If needed, do try to go for water in a box or glass-bottled water.
  • If you sweat a lot or work out a lot, then it's a given that you are going to be super dehydrated. In such cases, try a natural electrolyte that is, add a quarter teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt to water (1.5 litres). This is an excellent way to add in some extra natural minerals.
  • You can also opt for berries. Not only they are rich in antioxidants, but they are also great for the skin, hair as well as the cells of your body.

    I don't understand when you say to drink it throughout the day but not in between meals. Most of my day is in between meals so why would I not drink water then? This is a conflicting statement can you be more clear?

    HI Priyamlahon, Great article on staying hydrated, but about drinking at least 3 litres of water in day, I think that will be a very task for most people to measure though sometimes we seem to forget this often

      Thanks jasperdarko for your comment. I really appreciate it. And yes, what you have said, most of us do tend to forget about drinking the required amount of water in a day (me included), but then again, it's our body, right, and we do have to take care of it ourselves.
