We all know how important it is to drink enough. There’s so many health and beauty benefits but for me, a deterrent has been the need to constantly relieve myself. That’s probably too much information but we’re all human, right? I don’t think I can preach the necessity of drinking water without being transparent. Sure, I can try to persuade you with photos of colorful fruit-infused water and trendy paper straws but ain’t nobody got time for that. So, how am I making sure that I get my daily water intake? Simple: I carry a water bottle with me that I can fill anywhere. I have a few from bkr which are made of glass, has a silicon sleeve, and a cap with a ring that you can easily clip onto something and just makes it easier to hold. They come in a wide variety of colors so you’re sure to find something to go with your outfit or mood. Personally, I have a 500ML in “Pout” and 1L in “Sunday”.
I also have a 6-cup pitcher at work and a 10-cup pitcher at home that I share with Tyler. Both of my pitchers are from Soma and I get filter deliveries every two months so I know exactly when it needs to be replaced.
The Soma filter turns ordinary tap water into fresh, filtered water, and effectively reduces unwanted contaminants like chlorine, mercury, copper and more. The filter casing is made with sugarcane plant-based materials and the filter contents are made of activated coconut shell carbon. The pitcher and carafe are aesthetically pleasing in design with the pitchers having wooden handles. I have owned another water filter brand but the pitchers are made out of plastic and I’m unsure about their filter housing other than it being BPA-free. In addition to having beautiful pitchers and carafes, Soma is the Toms of drinking water in that each filter purchase made, they donate to charities primarily dealing with water projects.
If I find that I get bored drinking plain water I will add some fruit to give it a little flavor, especially lemons or lime. Not only do they add flavor, they’re good for you.
I’ve also been using an app to track my water intake called WaterMinder. I believe it’s a pay app, however, I got it when it was featured as the free app of the week on the App Store.
What do you do to make sure you drink enough water?
