Am I the only one that obsesses over the little details when selecting a water bottle? The littlest things truly make or break if I use a water bottle or if it is sentenced to an eternity in the back of my cupboard.
Staying hydrated is SO essential to feeling good. Not only can thirst be mistaken for hunger, but dehydration can leave you feeling sluggish, achy, and run down. Restore your glow- sip up! The general recommendation is to drink about 1/2 ounce of water for every pound that you weigh, daily.
It’s definitely better for absorption reasons to sip throughout the day over chugging all-at-once. That is, unless you really like your bathroom.
Disposable plastic water bottles are wasteful to the environment and allow tiny plastic particles to leach into your water. You know how water left in the car on a hot day starts to taste plastic-y? That’s because it IS plastic-y.
A glass water bottle would be best, but with my life right now there’s no chance it’d survive a week without being dropped a few dozen times. I won’t get into the time I tried making hot tea in a previous glass bottle and it shattered instantly…*sigh*
Here’s my checklist for the PERFECT water bottle.
BPA free plastic: for durability & safety reasons
Pretty, refreshing color: for fun reasons
Ounces clearly marked: for accountability reasons
Lid that covers mouthpiece: for germ reasons
Narrow mouthpiece: for anti-spilling-humiliation reasons
Easy grip for carrying: for mess prevention reasons
Classy Logo: for professional college pride reasons
Do you look for specific details in a water bottle? Please tell me I’m not the only one that’s this critical.
