Water Bottle Life Hack

water bottle life hack

Put markings on the the side of your water bottle corresponding to certain hours of the day to make sure you drink enough water all day.

According to the Mayo Clinic, The Institute of Medicine determined that since water is your body’s principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight, an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day.

What about the advice to drink eight glasses a day?

Everyone has heard the advice, “Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.” That’s about 1.9 liters, which isn’t that different from the Institute of Medicine recommendations. Although the “8 by 8” rule isn’t supported by hard evidence, it remains popular because it’s easy to remember. Just keep in mind that the rule should be reframed as: “Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day,” because all fluids count toward the daily total.

Except vodka. I don’t think vodka counts.

  3. Good idea, I do it similarly but without a marker.

    I do have a 1l (metricsystem πŸ˜‰ ) glass bottle which I fill every mornign and plan on drinking until lunch time. If I haven’t emptied it before lunch I just drink the rest at once before leaving the office.

    I do the same in the afternoon and therefore make sure that i get 2l of water every day πŸ˜‰

    • I like the metric system. I work with it a lot and wish the USA, the so called greatest country in the world, would wise up and adapt it. I understand the expense and effort and the struggle many people will have but if it is slowly phased in…
      Ok, off my soap box. LOL!
      Good job drinking that water Stefan. Keep up the good work. They say it is good for you so…

  5. Fantastic Article! The idea of placing markings as reminder to drink water on a bottle is INGENIOUS! Most people don’t realize that they are dehydrated. Chronic Dehydration is a serious issue and can lead to major health problems. The one thing that people want to take note of is that the tap water has chlorine and sometime both chlorine and ammonia in it. Yes it is true so we are putting toxic chemicals into our bodies when we use public water even the water from your sink. The only way around it is to get the best reverse osmosis system to get rid of all the chemicals you will be ingesting while maintaining your hydration which is very necessary in order to live a healthy lifestyle.

  7. Wait a minute…..the adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day and that for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day. That’s good news. I love this information.
    I guess i should be drinking more water as time comes.

    Thanks for the article.

  8. Great hacks. Just to add on that. its important to make sure the water is free of impurities and safe for consumption. One way of ensuring this is by installing filters and water softeners in your home. Thanks for the insights

  9. Thanks for sharing informative article but the truth from my side is, I rarely drink water in a day and only because of this my father placed a full bottle of water just beside my office table so that I can see the label on that Bottle says “Dad: Drink Me Now”, yes thats true, he did that.

    And now I stopped eating junk and fast foods.. thanks for reminding me for my health duties. thanks alot!

  10. I found your blog very informative. I was thinking of getting away from junk food and alcohol. Should i start being healthy this 2017. Thank you for suggesting living my life in drinking enough water.
