Water is not only good for us, it is necessary for our survival. That being said, many people have trouble getting down their 8-10 glasses each day. Your body needs to keep itself hydrated so that blood flows smoothly and your kidneys can flush themselves properly.

For the most part, water is pretty bland. When it is ice cold and filtered, it can be a refreshing beverage. But after a while it gets a little boring. There are things you can do to pep up your water. They sell water that is flavored but usually you will end up with lots of extra sugar that will add on too many calories and cancel out the benefits of drinking water.

You can infuse your own water and create flavors that you prefer and that are good for you as well. It doesn’t take a lot to create your own infused water. All you need is your own container that is big enough to hold a day’s worth of water plus the extra flavorings you decide to add. Have fun with it and purchase a pretty clear glass container that will show off the different fruits, vegetables, and herbs you use to infuse your water.
