Besides delicious taste of fruit infused water and the artsy pictures that you can post of it on social media, putting fruit in your water can have a lot of health benefits. By putting certain fruits in your water, you can lower your risk of diabetes, obesity, the common cold, the flu and heart disease. Adding fruit to your water can help also help your digestive system, strengthen your immune system and get rid of toxins. Fruit water can also decrease your risk of developing cancer.

Fruit infused water can also help maintain your youth. Rather than spending money on anti-aging creams, putting fruit in your water can slow down the aging process. Because fruit contains powerful antioxidants and increases collagen production, it allows you to look and feel younger, leaving your skin silky smooth.

Fruit water can also increase your metabolism and help you maintain a healthy body weight; it doesn’t contain the calories of soft drinks, but it is more fulfilling than plain water. Because there are so many vitamins in fruit, putting fruit in your water can leave you feeling more energetic. Basically, it’s a healthy drink that can help satisfy your sweet tooth. Of course, different types of fruit have different health benefits.

1. Lemon

Putting lemon in your water helps aid digestion and freshen your breath. It also helps detox your liver.

2. Grape

Grapes are notorious for containing cancer fighting compounds.

3. Orange

Oranges help with healthy blood circulation. They are also a valuable source at vitamin C and reduce the risk of stroke.

4. Apple

Apples help maintain bone and tissue health. They are high in iron and low in calories, which is always a plus.

5. Kiwi

Because kiwis contain an enzyme called actinidain, they are great for your skin.

6. Grapefruit

Grapefruit is both great tasting and great at flushing toxins out of your body.

7. Cucumber

Cucumbers hydrate and are good at flushing out toxins.

8. Raspberry

Raspberries are an anti-inflammatory and rich in fiber.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions.
