Drinking water

Let’s talk about why a water bottle is a must-have in your purse. What do you take to work or to school for a drink? Is your answer water? Because mine is, and it has been for a very long time. Water is very healthy for you. We are made of water for the most part, water doesn’t have sugars or calories which is a win. I must admit that water tastes different depending on how hard the water is, soft water is so much nicer to drink. Water is one of those things you just kind of need to learn to drink if you don’t like it because water is so good for you.

Did you know that water:
– Helps you feel fuller which makes it easier to lose weight
– That you can be thirsty when you think you’re hungry (which goes hand in hand with weight loss)
– That it helps your skin to be less dry and healthier which can help with acne (say goodbye to pimples)
– It helps if you have cramps (honestly my cramps are always worse if I haven’t been drinking enough water).
– It can help if you have headaches
– Your teeth won’t be damaged as much as other drinks. So healthy, white teeth for a lifetime everyone wants that right?

It’s difficult to drink water but if you always have it with you it’s much easier to drink it.

If you don’t like water you can do the following things:
– Add lemonade (not exactly zero calories anymore but it’s sweeter and it helps. and hey it’s better than coke
– Add cucumber, it changed the flavour a bit
– Drink it in the morning and evening with just one glass it’s a good start of a habit.
– Drink tea (still water)
– You will get used to the taste (sorry but you eventually will)

So start slowly for example:
– I will drink water with my dinner
– I will start my day with a cup of tea each morning or
– I will take a water bottle to school/work.
The small things make it work, trust me. One step at a time.

So wherever I go, I always take a bottle of water. I have a great water bottle called Dopper it’s wonderful because you can drink out of it normally or screw the white part of it and then it’s a glass. I’ve had mine for years. I have a blue one and a red one and I used to have a pink one. My mum bought it for me years ago. It’s good quality so it doesn’t break and doesn’t leak if you screw the top on. Besides that, you can put it into the dishwasher, so it’s cleaned properly. Anyway, when I got it no one knew the bottles. It’s a project to let people drink more water and you can fill it on all these points all over the country for free. I loved mine because you can refill it, it fits under every sink because you can screw the white part off.  Some people laughed at my bottle. They thought it was funny because a lot of teachers had it too. Seriously I have loved it from the start. So now everyone has this bottle. It’s this cool thing now and I find that so funny. When people make you feel weird for drinking water, let them. You are being healthy and you might be a trendsetter as well.

I have had mine for years now and I still adore it. I think you shouldn’t buy a water bottle just for the sake of having a cute water bottle that makes you popular. Drinking water is just really important. If you want a water bottle buy one that fits you best, one that you love and adore not one that everyone else likes and you don’t. Try to find a thin one (that isn’t this big thing in your bag) and can fit under a lot of sinks. Carrying a bottle will make you drink more water it’s this reminder that you take with you. Just try and let me know how that goes.

Lots of love,
