We’ve been told since childhood that we need to drink more water.
Sounds like fun, except when it isn’t. With exception, most people rarely enjoy turning to water as the beverage of choice. You can blame this on your taste buds.
So how can you get in the habit of drinking more water?
Basically, do just that — Make it a Habit!
Trust us, it’s very difficult to make a habit of drinking h20 by carrying around 8 bottles of bottled water. That’s 8.8lbs of weight you would need to carry around with you.
Solution: Get yourself a solid liquid container.
It’s much easier to make a habit of drinking water when you have your trust old container by your side throughout the day.
Grab a suitable container — doesn’t matter which one, and get to drinking.
How much water should you drink?
In his book TB12, Tom Brady suggests half of your body weight in oz of water.
This might be accessive.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is:
About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids for men
About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids a day for women
Our favorite water container/bottle of choice is the Nalgene.
- With its wide mouth rim, water goes down easily and quickly.
- You can hold 32oz of water in a not so crazy sized bottle.
- It looks cool and keeps the water cool.
- It’s nearly indestructible (which makes it more functional than a glass container)
- It might just be psychological, but it doesn’t conjure a metallic taste (which makes it more pleasing to drink from than a Stainless Steel container).
- It’s BPA free.
- You can find Nalgene bottles almost everywhere.
