Stay Hydrated -Stay Happy

Staying hydrated throughout the day is essential for our overall health and happiness and yet I find this one of the hardest things to do. We mostly reach out for water only when we feel thirsty and even then juice, coffee, tea often replace what our body actually needs – pure water.

Understanding why water is just so good for us helps with motivation and creating water drinking habit. It has been proven to be great for the skin, helps body regulation and brain function improve blood flow and oxygen flow to your brain, helps with weight loss and even mood. The list goes on and on. So, what is one to do in order to make drinking water part of a daily routine?

Get a cool water bottle of course! This always motivates me. When it comes to a water bottle I want it to be:

  • Light
  • Wide enough mouth so that I can add ice cubes
  • Washable
  • Environmentally friendly and friendly to me (BPA free)
  • Have great insulating properties
  • Durable
  • Leak free

…and last but not least well designed and super cool.

6 water bottles that will make you want to drink more water

BKR Bottles 

I love these beautiful, fresh and soft to the touch bottles. Like me BKR believes that the objects in your life should be beautiful, effortless and loved. They definitely feel more like a fashion accessory rather than necessity. But that’s OK! That’s why I love them! Most of the times water bottles look just so boring.

What I also love is that bkr releases seasonal collections that are based on runway trends in New York, London, Paris and Milan and as such they are generally all limited edition. Yay!

The Facts:

  • glass + silicone, BPA-free, phthalate-free
  • small opening for no-spill sipping, perfect
  • no-leak seal, fits most cup holders
  • dishwasher safe
  • 100% adorable + addictive

S’well

Glass bottles can be heavy and not very durable. If you are after something that is not glass or plastic but still looks great then S’well are perfect for you. Their prints are fun, the bottles are super handy, functional and easy to clean.

They are also a socially responsible brand as they have teamed up with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help provide clean drinking water to children around the world.

The Facts:

  • Composed of non-leaching and non-toxic 18/8 stainless steel
  • Keep your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12
  • Giving back to those in need is important, help reduce plastic bottle waste

24 bottles 

You can be healthy, help the environment while still not compromising on your style.  24Bottles is another colourful, sustainable, stylish brand for water bottles on the go.

The Facts:

  • The 18/8 stainless steel replaces old aluminium, giving strenghth and light weight.
  • BPA free
  • Plane boarding allowance
  • Suitable for hot and cold drinks

SIGG 

Swiss design does not come any cooler than this. Crafted from a single piece of high-grade aluminium the SIGG water bottles are  light and robust. They now come in amazing prints and a rainbow of colours.

The Facts:

  • 100% watertight, even for carbonated drinks.
  • Highly elastic EcoCare inner layer is acid-resistant
  • Does not retain flavour
  • BPA and phthalates free
  • 100% recyclable

Asobu 

If you are like me and like to drop few pieces of fruit in your water to give it some tast and also like me thought why has no one created a bottle that is suitable for that, well here it is.

Asobu has added few new additions to their already impressive product design resume.

Pure Flavour 2 Go and Flavour It 2 Go  do just this – add fun and taste to your water. The bottles are made with virtually unbreakable tritan material and they all have built in fruit infuser. The toughest choice you will have to make is which fruit to add!

The Facts:

  • BPA free
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Easy to clean.

Pure To Go

There is also a citrus boost option which I find super handy. Add a splash of lemon or lime to your water and it will cleanse your system, keep your breath fresh while staying hydrated.  ‘The citrus 2 go will offer you a quick taste of citrus fruit and chill your water at the same time. The freezer unit incorporated into the bottle section ensures your water stays cold longer.

Acquablend

Another option for flavoured water. You can choose from Twist Top for every day or Flip Top for sport. These bottles are sturdy, well designed and really practical for those who love their water with a splash of fruit or few mint leaves on the go.

The Facts:

  • BPA Free Guaranteed
  • Premium Tritan Material
  • 23 fl. oz (600ml) water bottle
  • Fits Neatly in Most Cup Holders
  • Top rack dishwasher safe
  • Stain resistant
  • Durable Single Wall Construction
