It seems like every day there’s a new beauty, weight loss, or fitness hack on the market. And while these new & exciting trends can be fun to try, there’s this little old trick called “drinking more water” that’s been proven to make your life better than you ever imagined…
Not only does drinking plenty of water clear up your skin, but it also helps control your calorie intake, energizes your muscles, balances your bodily fluids, & increases kidney function! That all sounds totally magical, doesn’t it? Knowing this…why don’t we just CHUG, CHUG, CHUG?! Well, maybe it’s because there isn’t a chilled water bottle waiting for us wherever we go, and because we don’t naturally crave the flavourless liquid, & ummmm honestly, we forget because no one is holding us accountable!
And if that’s not enough to make you feel H2O guilty, apparently you are supposed to drink half your weight in ounces per day… For example, if you weigh 150 lbs, you should be drinking at least 75 ounces/day! Basically, drinking water should be WAY easier…so without further ado, here are the 3 best solutions to your aqua struggles:
Excuse #1: “I only drink bottled water.”
S’well bottles have changed our life – they are the only reusable bottles that look great & do good for the environment (even designers like Mara Hoffman couldn’t resist designing their own bottles!) These beautifully crafted bottles eliminate plastic waste, keep your drinks cold for up to 24 hours (or hot for 12) and donate proceeds to those in need. You won’t ever leave home without this new companion. They offer sizes ranging from 9oz (think: coffee & tea) to 24oz, which is perfect for always having lots of water on hand (or an entire bottle of wine, yep.) S’well bottles don’t “sweat” (condensation is SOOOOO not cute), so throw them in your purse & rest assured nothing is getting wet. Over here, we challenge each other to fill up our 24oz S’well bottles 3x a day!
Excuse #2: “Like, water is, like, nothing. Like, we just don’t crave it?!”
Be honest…water isn’t the tastiest drink out there (ahem: red wine). Adding delicious fruits, herbs, or even veggies (for those brave souls) can help give your water a unique flavour that you will crave throughout the day. We like to infuse our water with either raspberries & limes, or strawberries & basil. If you need even more sweetness, we recommend adding Stevia or agave nectar.
Excuse #3: “Who’s gonna make me?”
The Watterlogged App will track your water consumption by day, week, or year, & you can see at a glance how you’re doing! You can set reminders when you need them & the overall goal is to help build healthy water drinking habits throughout your busy day. So consider this app like the Dr.Oz of water therapy….download it, and thank us later.
So, there we have it, no excuses not to get more of the best liquid into your body, whether you’re a glampuss mooching around in your Gucci sunglasses, or the average Jane on the street, drink more!
