Drinking more water is important. I don’t know if you know about that. As summer gets closer I imagine every news page is going to try to push generic articles about it on you. But that’s not what I’m doing. I’m pushing an informative, quirky, and helpful article. So there.
Recently, when I decided that I had to make some dietary changes because of how my pants didn’t fit and the mirror was just being plain obnoxious, my first step was to stop drinking soda. The flip-side to that coin, was that I also needed to start drinking more water. After all, what the crap was I supposed to drink with lunch and dinner now that I had shunned my bff, HFCS?
The biggest hurdle for drinking more water, in my personal case, is that I don’t typically drink anything unless I’m eating, or exercising. And since, ahem, I don’t do either of those things that often, I don’t find a lot of motivation to drink the watahs.
Until I painstakingly developed the tried and true method pictured above. Or I tried it on a whim. Whatever.
Put a bird on it! Put a tea bag in it!
Okay, so some people might say then it’s not technically water, but I don’t care about what those people technically say.
If you’re like me, you like herbal tea, but are too lazy to actually brew it. There’s the waiting for it to steep, the waiting for it to cool back down if you want it cold, the adding of sticky honey. Over all, it’s just more work than I’m usually willing to put forth. Lazy, yes?
That is why this is so freaking genius! Just drop a tea back in your water bottle. Then, viola, it’s not unsweetened tea, it’s flavored water! Consider your paradigm blown. You’re welcome.
I find I’m much more likely to sip on my water bottle all afternoon if it’s flavored like rasberry earl grey or green tea with lemongrass.
Brilliant, right? Go ahead, give it a try!
