Healthy Behaviors is about lifestyle habits, namely healthy eating and physical activity, which have proven connections to lifelong health and disease prevention.
Drink a glass of water that you flavor naturally with lemon, lime, orange, mint, or cucumber.
How to do it
Fill up a big glass with water, ice (if you like), and something from nature that tempts your taste buds! You can use refreshing slices of citrus fruits (lime, lemon, orange), cool slivers of cucumber, or even tongue-tingling tastes like ginger or mint. (Use real mint leaves or a bit of real ginger, not flakes or ground spices.)
Why it matters
Water is nature's original health drink! It fills you up, keeps you hydrated, and helps prevent fatigue. But plain water can sometimes get a bit ... plain. Instead of using processed drink mixes or buying expensive flavored waters, you can add zing to your H20 by just opening up your refrigerator. By making your water more exciting, you may even reach for more.
A New York-based company named MeatWater sells waters flavored like beef salad, cheeseburger, barbecued chicken wings, Italian sausage, and Hungarian goulash.
