I’m not one of those people that easily gets my daily allowance of water; in fact, I struggle every day to make sure I follow the basic 8×8 rule (eight 8-ounce glasses day). This struggle is only compounded by the fact that getting the proper water intake while on-the-go is not easy—not unless you consider shelling out a few bucks to buy a bottle. I’ll explain later why it’s best to avoid this temptation, but for now let’s talk about having our own bottle handy. It’s really not that hard, I promise, and here’s why…
With things like this I try to make it into a game of sorts; it’s the same trick I use to remember my grocery bags. I quickly realized that if I was ever going to make a habit out of what could be a nuisance or a chore, I’d have to turn it into a statement. So, I went on a mission to find a sexy bottle that I’d be excited to carry. I’m not always on top of it, but I’d say overall my batting average has greatly improved. Even if a list of reasons to avoid bottled water isn’t quite enough for you, maybe a sexy reusable bottle will be the deciding factor!
For a complete guide on reusable bottles check out the 2009 BPA Free Water Bottle Showdown compiled by the folks at The Tranquil Parent. (Notice that SIGG bottles are not on the list. :( Sadly, there’s been more drama, and even after giving them a second chance the liners still don’t seem to be any better. I’m now on a mission to find a new sexy water bottle. Let me know if you have a favorite!)
