The human body is composed of 70 percent water. Drinking enough water on a daily basis is important. Yet for so many of us, this is hard to do due to existing habits or just not liking the taste of plain water. Adding a slice of lemon or lime can give a little flavour without adding any calories, preservatives or sugar. Drinking water that is cold also helps many people drink more water. The number one way of increasing the amount of water you drink a day is by having water bottles filled with water ready to go and accessible to you so that you stay mindful of your water consumption throughout the day and thus drink enough water!
Water bottles come in all types of sizes, shapes, colours and materials. It is important when you buy a water bottle that you consider the material that is used. Plastic water bottles need to be free of BPA, a known carcinogen and harmful chemical that used to be widely used in a polycarbonate plastic. Glass and reusable stainless steel water bottles are considered the healthiest option to drink from and since they are reusable, they also have a minimal environmental impact. Of course, you will need to keep your water bottles clean and hygienic for your own maximum benefit.
