Do you drink enough water? I know I don’t. It’s not that I don’t know the importance of it – yet hours will go by before my next sip. I get too wrapped up in whatever I am doing to stop and refill my glass. And I’m such a hypocrite, too, because I will call out to my kids, engrossed in their play, when I notice they haven’t gulped down water in awhile, “You guys! Stop and have some water – your body needs it!” I bypass the sign my daughter and I painted a couple years ago that is tacked above the water filter on the fridge:

[Tweet “Love Your Body – Drink Water”]

Then I wonder why my skin feels dry and my system feels sluggish.

So, when Brita® asked me if I’d try out their water pitcher and share my experience with you, I realized that a pitcher was exactly what I needed for my studio. Right now, I have a glass of water on a coaster to the left of my laptop. It’s got about a sip left in it. Normally, I’d finish off that sip and then the glass would remain empty for the remainder of my work time. That’s precious time that I could have maintained some level of hydration! But with a pitcher perched right beside me…well, what do YOU think? Think it will work?

I’m going to try it out and see if it makes a difference – stay posted for updates here and on Facebook and Twitter.

Now, let’s talk about YOU! Would clean, filtered water perched on your work desk help you stay hydrated? Do you know someone who could use some inspiration to carry out their health goals in 2015? How about someone who has recently had a baby and needs the boosted hydration while nursing? Brita® water pitchers and bottles can be a unique gift idea!


Also good to note: one Brita® water filter replaces 300 plastic bottles. So, if you’re a plastic bottle guzzler, let’s make the switch!

Brita® and I would like to offer one lucky reader their very own filtered water bottle to kick off this holiday season and take you into a much more hydrated and healthy new year!
