I admit it, I am not all that great about drinking enough water throughout the day. We all know how important staying hydrated is, but how many of us really love to drink water? Don’t get me wrong, I do like a refreshing glass of water, but sometimes I want to change it up a bit.
This is where DASANI Drops comes in. Packaged in a squeezable bottle with a flip-top cap, it is the perfect size to have a wide variety without taking up a lot of room, or to keep in my purse while I’m on the go.
Now that the weather is starting to cool down I am once again starting up my walks around the neighborhood. Even though it’s cooling down, it’s still in the 80s here and I really need to be sure to drink my water so I have added zero-calorie DASANI Drops to my walk routine. I squirt a little into my water bottle, grab my iPod and I’m good to go.
It has also been great to have around for the kids. Both of my kids are pretty good at drinking water, but they’re kids and they also like fruity flavors. Since we are trying to limit juice even more than we already do, I let them have a glass of flavored water instead and they haven’t even really missed the juice.
It’s easy for me to forget to drink water while I’m working so I have been keeping a glass of flavored water next to me at all times. I get into a groove writing or doing behind the scenes blog tasks and before I know it, three hours have gone by and all I’ve had to drink is my morning coffee. Since I am prone to headaches, this isn’t a good idea.
You would think that at my age I would know better since the headaches are usually due to dehydration. I always feel a million times better after I have chugged a big glass of water, but I am also easily distracted by work, kids, and life. Many of us are. So below are some tips that I have been using to keep my water intake up to a reasonable level and make sure that I’m staying hydrated all day. I still have some work to do, but with DASANI Drops I hope that I will be able to stay on track by mixing it up a bit.
