Don’t Panic

img_6482It’s 2018… I cannot stress enough how hectic of a lifestyle we all have. We are always on the go, we need our things immediately, and we need these to be effective (I could go on and on, but there’s a fine line between informative vs. cliche).

I’m super health conscious (or at least I try), so I’m always incorporating small healthy routines to my lifestyle, which in the long run, does make a huge difference (like losing an additional 10 pounds a year after I stopped eating an extra processed snack everyday).

Anyhow, one of my favorite routines is drinking 75 ounces of water every day. I learned that the best way to determine how much water to drink is by dividing your total weight by 2… and then drink the final results in ounces of water. For example, if you weight 146, divide that by 2, (146/2=73), meaning that you should be drinking 73 ounces of water every day. Last year, I was so used to drinking so much water, that I would double it up and drink 150 ounces of water every day. I know it sounds insane, but IT WAS ACTUALLY GREAT! I was refreshed, my skin was less dry, and my vowel movement was healthy (I’m being honest people!). At work, I was known as the girl who constantly drank loads of water and always had to pee… We used to poke fun at it, and I became very popular for it…

Time has passed and I’ve been in a rocky road. In between the stress and my overall lifestyle, my water intake has decreased significantly; so I went from drinking 150 ounces of water, to barely taking 40 ounces a day (yes, I’m ashamed). As a result of this decrease, I have also noticed a multitude of changes, which includes super dry skin and even much slower vowel movement.

All these changes have been negative, and I was looking for different fun ways to up my water intake, including adding pieces of lemon, to buying a fun water bottle (I was assuming that certain colors could motivate water intake). When I was doing my research, I came across Glasstic Water Bottle, and I had to try it!

As I mentioned above, we live a very hectic and active lifestyle. When it comes to improving my water intake, I needed a water bottle that was fun, easy to carry, and easy to use at work. You might be thinking, “big deal, just use a water bottle…” but the reality is that the issue is much greater than that: heavy bottle adds extra weight which is a nightmare for a commuter, regular plastic bottles accumulate a lot of bacteria with the daily use, and glass bottles don’t accumulate heavy bacteria, but they break easily.

What I loved so much about Glasstic Water Bottle is how convenient the design is. The inside is made of glass and the outside is made out of plastic, meaning that the glass accumulate less bacteria. The outer plastic cover of the water bottle is made out of a shatter-proof material, meaning that if the glass portion of the water bottle breaks, the plastic protects it, so you no longer have to worry about a bunch of shattered glass (I included a picture from their website to show you how it works… at the end of the day, a picture can say more than a 1000 words.

You may be wondering, if the inside glass breaks, what is the purpose? What’s great about it is that Glasstic comes with a free lifetime warranty. Apart from that, they are very focused on recycling and sustainability, meaning that Glasstic also has a free life-time parts replacement. This means that they will replace anything or any feature that breaks from your water bottle!

Glasstic also has some cool design features: flip top with handle, large sprout for taking big drinks, wide mouths to insert larger foods/fruits, it is dish washer safe, and because of the design, you can customize the bottle to add many styles and decorations.
