Drinking clean, crisp water is one of my best tips to have clear and radiant skin, increased energy, and overall good feelings. I aim to drink 100 ounces a day which is no simple feat, but I’m sharing some of my favorite tips to take your hydration situation to a whole new level. Drink that water, girl!
start with fresh water
I used to be a bottled water drinker because I couldn’t stand the taste of water that didn’t taste perfect (I know, that sounds high maintenance) but I couldn’t help but thinking I was drinking something not pure. Bottled water not only is a waste of money since its incredibly overpriced, but the extra plastic bottles end up in landfills, in oceans, and pollute our planet. I’ve since switched over to filtering my own water. I picked my Brita up on a grocery trip to Safeway and it is definitely more economical and planet friendly than bottled water. At less than $30, my Brita pitcher practically paid for itself and it reduces all of the chlorine taste that bothered me before. I also love being able to bring the pitcher to the dining table during meals for easy refills.
Oh… and not to mention my hero Steph Curry from the Golden State Warriors has teamed up with Brita to share the importance of drinking clean water! You guys…my local Warriors are going to win the NBA Finals again this year, I can feel it!
dress it up with fruit
Once I have my crisp and clean water, I’ll sometimes add fresh fruit to jazz it up a bit! I’m a diehard fan of water with lemon but also love the combination of strawberries with mint, black cherries, and lemon with kiwi. Make sure you muddle the fruit in your container first to bring out the juices to really enhance your water.
pick your vessel
Since I’ve made a pledge to myself to avoid single-use plastic water bottles, I’ve developed quite the collection of various jars, bottles, and containers that I use based on what I’m doing. If I’m at home I’ll use a large glass mason jar with a straw (love these plastic ones because they are so durable!). If I’m on the go or headed to a fitness class, I’ll opt for one of the metal insulated bottles so it keeps my water cold for hours. I recently found this gold bottle and it’s been on constant rotation!
