Tap water is the best choice as bottled water is expensive, environmentally unfriendly and bulky to store. However, tap water can taste a bit yuck! It is also difficult to keep track of how much you are drinking. There is a handy solution available in the form of convenient jugs and bottles which allow us to filter tap water at home and on the go. The BRITA Marella jug and the funky Fill & Go bottle are ideal and make it easier to reach your target.
I was challenged to take part in the BRITA Drinking Water Challenge, to drink the recommended 1.2 litres a day and to see if I felt any better for doing so. I was supplied with the jug and a Fill & Go bottle. Keeping the jug topped up in the fridge provides a constant supply of freshly filtered and chilled water to drink. The Fill & Go bottle is brilliant. You can keep it on your desk or take it to the gym or in the car on long journeys. Fill it twice a day and enjoy filtered water on the go for just a few pence a litre.
I am not good at drinking water. I end up with coffee or Pepsi Max instead. Neither are particularly healthy options. But having the Fill & Go bottle by my side has really encouraged me, reminding me to drink water instead. It tastes good too and is instantly refreshing and rehydrating. I forget how good drinking water feels!
I have found that I do definitely feel better. The most noticeable thing is that I get less headaches. I know that dehydration is a cause of these but I put it down to being tired - and usually grab a Pepsi Max to wake myself up. It's a vicious circle! Drinking water also helps with the healthy eating. I feel less peckish and feel more in touch with my body. My skin feels more hydrated too. My skin looks better too as the bags under my eyes look less prominent. It is just so easy to make this improvement when you put your mind to it! I feel ashamed that I neglect my water consumption in favour of Pepsi Max, even though I know that it is just chemicals and caffeine and does my health no good. Switching my addictive Pepsi craving for water is a really positive step towards improving my health long term.
If you want to join the challenge and see how much better you feel after drinking the recommended amount of water a day, I have an excellent giveaway for you!
