I try to drink lots of water, but I don't always succeed. In fact, I don't usually succeed, because most of the time, I don't think about it. Hydration doesn't cross my mind until I get super thirsty, which is usually late in the evening after a day of not drinking enough. Those days usually end with headaches.
Actually, I get headaches a lot. They're never far away, so drinking plenty of water is one of the ways I can stave them off. It's one of the variables I can control.
Just a few days ago, a friend gave me one of these stainless steel water bottles from Vessel Drinkware.
It doesn't make water taste plasticky or metallic, and it's easy to drink from. Maybe it's just because it's new, or because the penguin is cute, but I have been drinking bottle after bottle of water the last few days, effortlessly.
I do really hate having to use the bathroom a lot, though.
