I know it gets boring drinking plain old water, but before you pour it down the drain and opt for a sugary drink, I have some suggestions for you. How about you try out naturally flavored water?

Lemon: With this classic drink, all you have to do is add slices of lemon. It's a great way to get your dose of vitamin C for the day and get that digestive system going. If you're not a fan of lemon, try another citrus fruit for the same effect.
Cucumber: If you're looking to fit in a dress by the weekend, this is the perfect combo for you. The cucumber acts like a diuretic which means you'll get rid of any puffiness and bloating.
Mint leaves: If you want that feel refreshed right away, add fresh mint to your water. It's perfect for that pick-me-up in the afternoon and helps food get distributed safely through the liver, gallbladder and relieves any stomach aches you may have.
Watermelon: Similar to cucumbers, watermelon is a natural diuretic and naturally sweetens your water. It also properly filters out your liver and kidneys from any harmful toxins.
Berries of all kinds: Whether you have blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or strawberries on hand, they are great to flavor water. Their anti-inflammatory agents are perfect for relaxing after an afternoon jog. The anti-aging properties also keep you looking youthful!
