Every now and then I come across products that make a huge impact in my life and I’m so happy that this simple motivational water bottle HydrateM8 has done just that improving my general well being. With the big 40 life begins and all that jazz birthday next month, I’ve been trying to get into the best shape that I can possibly be. It’s been a little hard to exercise to be honest as life is busy when you have an active toddler but I try to fit in a workout here and there. I am however a huge fan of water so I’ve been drinking what feels like an ocean these past few months and I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my skin looking brighter the crows feet are still there though.
I drink approximately 3.5 litres on a good day and make sure I drink a glass of water before I go to bed at night sadly this sometimes means I need the use of the lavatorium in the middle of the night but I can’t complain as I’m used to waking up due to my sleep raider son. Other non water beverages (wink wink) have been consumed mainly at weekends but with the pace of every day life sometimes it’s hard to keep a track of whether you’re actually drinking enough. The popular HydrateM8 is simply a bottle of a 900ml capacity with time line markings to keep a track of how much water you should be drinking but this concept will help anyone young and old.
I first came across this product line on Instagram and loved it so much that I ordered two one for me and mine and it arrived quickly in good packaging. Available in 7 colours, 2 childrens bottles and 2 fruit infusers, the adult bottles are £13.99 although there is a current offer on the ‘summer mode’ bottle 2 for £22. It is perhaps pricey for an empty bottle you could say but I know I will use it daily and I haven’t regretted making the purchase at all.
Staying hydrated is oh so important yet many of us just don’t drink enough in the day. I know when I’m dehydrated as I get headaches especially in the recent warm weather. My body also slows down and every action seems a struggle. The body will perform well if it is consistently hydrated bit by bit and it doesn’t have to be water. Eating fruits and vegetables which contain high water will definitely help. I’m not a fan of cucumbers but love cucumber flavoured water how odd is that! I love how I can infuse the HydrateM8 with a couple of cucumber slices thrown in. I have yet to try lemon and lime for a boost of Vitamin C or why not chuck in some berries and anything else you fancy as long as it’s good for you!.
I also make sure Jay has his toddler bottle of water near him always. As a parent I want to make sure he drinks enough water in the day as he can forget when playing and having fun. Talking about toddlers, I was thinking how good a gift this would make for a pregnant friend! The other lovely thing about this range is the quirky motivational quotes to keep you hydrated. If I hadn’t gone for the ‘Summer Mode’ bottle I would have selected ‘Carpe Diem’ (a Latin aphorism ‘Seize the day’ ) one of my favourite sayings of all time.
WORK HARD DREAM BIG
HARDER BETTER FASTER STRONGER
NOTHING WORTH HAVING COMES EASY
I don’t think I can say any more as you get the idea but do check out the website and it’s great to see that the company have been working with the British Charity Pump Aid helping communities with basic needs, safe water and sanitation. We do take water for granted here and it really is so very valuable we should use it wisely and drink wise.
Thanks for reading
Go and grab a glass of water or better still, a HydrateM8, Mate.
