Proper hydration is a very important part of our well-being. However, it happens that we forget about it. We have several ways to do this.
We need water to flush harmful toxins out of the body. It also takes part in regulating our body temperature and allows our organs to work properly. Long-term dehydration can affect our health badly. If you notice that you drink too little water and have problems with regularity, reach for gadgets. They will help you develop valuable habits – drinking the right amount will become part of your schedule.
Buy a smart bottle
The smart bottle has recently become increasingly popular, and more and more people are beginning to appreciate its help in developing the habit of drinking water. Unfortunately, it is relatively expensive. It is an expense of about 400 zlotys. However, some of them have a number of features, including a bluetooth speaker.
Their main advantage, however, is the alert system. The bottle’s operation can be based on flashing lights that prevent you from forgetting to drink another glass. In addition to this, their undoubted advantage is the option to control consumption via an app on your phone. This is a great idea for athletes, but also for seniors. Remember, too, that you can choose from a variety of capacities when you buy. The collapsible mouthpiece and leak-proof lid allow you to transport the bottle even in your bag, making it a good idea for active and frequent travelers. Some of the bottles perform well at keeping liquids cold, while others can handle keeping water hot for up to 12 hours.
Choose a cheaper alternative
If you are not in a position to spend several hundred zlotys on a smart vessel, you can also buy a regular filter bottle, without the conspicuous alert system. However, remember then to use an app on your phone that will inform you when it’s time for a few sips. You will enter your weight in it and set reminder times. Such a bottle is a good idea for college, for example, as it is often lighter than its smart counterpart and more flexible.
Something for fans of variety
If you find it hard to get used to drinking plain water, maybe you will be convinced by its carbonated version. With help comes SodaStream, which in Poland is popular mainly because of its machines for making syrups for sweet carbonated drinks.
However, its version for carbonating plain water is also worth exploring. No longer do you have to buy heavy packs at the store and accumulate excess plastic. The SodaStream Fizzi will allow you to expressly prepare carbonated water in the kitchen at any time. This gadget can also be a good way to change the harmful habit of reaching for sugary carbonated drinks.
The manufacturers have recently launched natural fruit flavored drops that can further enhance the drink. In addition, the company boasts that surveyed SodaStream users drink 43 percent more water than those who do not use their gadget. Interestingly, when using it, you don’t have to worry about any tangle of cables. It is cordless and easy to carry.
