I will never (never, ever) claim to be a health nut, and definitely not an expert on the topic. I simply love a good ol’ American burger and a pint of beer too much to ever fully convert. I’m currently munching on a big slice of banana bread, full of sugar and sour cream. Yum.
Despite this, lately I’ve been working on a bad habit — not drinking enough water. There’s so much information out there about how water makes everything in your body just work better, but its an easy thing to forget in a busy life. As I’ve returned back to working life recently, I’ve found that the easiest way to stay hydrated is to have a fun something to drink from. This is not a scientifically-proven fact, but having a cute cup or water bottle on my desk or in my cup holder generally encourages me to reach over and take a sip. Here are some of my favorite choices.
1. bkr bottle // These silicon wrapped glass water bottles, a favorite over at DesignLoveFest’s Blogshop, bring beautiful, minimalist design to make even drinking water feel fabulous.
2. Define Bottle // A little fancier, and more high-tech, than your average bottle, these include a separate compartment and filter to create fresh fruit-infused water. Check out their entire line for more.
3. Aladdin Double-Walled Plastic Mason Jar // These can be found in multiple styles at Target, Wal-Mart and Costco. The double-wall eliminates pesty condensation, the plastic won’t break like a classic mason jar, and brings a little country charm to your table. (We have 3 in our apartment & literally use them daily.)
4. Present Time Bottle // This one comes with either the word WATER or JUICE along the side. Doesn’t it just bring back memories of 1950s milk men?
