How to make drinking water a lot easier

Last year, I wrote a lengthly post about why its so necessary to drink more water. Drinking water isn't really a problem for me, its simply remembering to drink it.

I discovered that if you simply always have a bottle of water on your desk, or within reach of where you work, it will require nothing more than the thought "I could use some water" to grab your water bottle and drink some water (maybe even leave the cap off!). But if you have to get up and walk somewhere just to get some water, you're a lot less likely to do it.

I like to buy a single 1.5 liter Poland Spring bottle of water and simply make sure I refill it once during the day. That means I'll get at least 100oz of water per day. At the end of the week, I toss out the bottle and buy a new one (reusing the bottle too many times can eventually cause toxins in the plastic to release into the water).

  1. LoL.. reminisce of a time I used to be so thrilled about water and the 17 pills I take a day.. heh.. Maybe I need to start that back up.. the pre-deployment hikes are such a pain.

    I like that post about the vegan protein shake. I might have to try that sometime. It sounds pretty good… and being a little more green too.. which will have to wait until the end of my 4 years.. because I need to eat all they give me.. pretty much.

    Anyways, I took a small trip over a weekend to San Diego.. after then.. I realized my one day journey was a blitzkriege of the San Diego culture that became.. what I then realized.. hmm.. my little spring break. I took some photos.. then lost the camera. I hope you see it.

    Then I just thought.. maybe I need to visit the places one at a time.. slower.. so maybe I can let it soak in.. and I missed out on a bunch of things.

    OOh… I am thinking on your blog! Peace.

  2. One of the things I’ve always wanted to do (and still plan on doing at some point in my life) is to visit many different places, all over the world, and spend anywhere from 3 months to a year settling down and living like the locals — learn what its like to live in their shoes.

    I hate visiting new places as a tourist — here one day, gone the next. There is never enough time to really experience a new place if you’re only there for a few days, even if that new place is a city or state you’ve never been in. Hell, I’ve lived within the same 30 mile radius for the past 25 years and I’m still learning about new places and things I’ve never seen.
