We all know about the benefit of water, or do we?

Girl Drinking Water From GlassMost of our body is made up of water, in fact 55%-78% depending on size. Do you drink enough water during the day?

Health experts advise us to drink between six or seven glasses of water (approximately two litres) per day. This is the recommended minimum to maintain proper hydration. If you are very active then you’ll need to drink even more water than the recommended amount.

Did you know that drinking water can help you lose weight?

Feeling hungry is often confused with being thirsty, so next time you are tempted by a coffee and a chocolate bar try a couple of glasses of water! You’ll really notice how much it fills you up. You may need to visit the toilet more often throughout the day but that involves you in a little extra exercise so you could be shedding a few calories in the process!

Fresh water at work has been seen as a positive step towards a happier more productive workplace and it can reduce tiredness, light-headedness, headaches and migraines.

The Rubbish Diet Challenge

For a long time I was guilty of buying plastic disposable water bottles from the supermarket and then throwing away in my rubbish bin when it was empty. Well, until I met Karen Cannard that is – Founder of  the rubbish diet, the UK’s dedicated slimming club for bins!

Karen at www.therubbishdiet.org.uk taught me how to reduce my household and business waste. Follow her business on Twitter to find out more @therubbishdiet

Because of Karen I now think very carefully about EVERTHING that goes in my rubbish bin. (My house is down to one black sack per week) I see Karen in my head shaking her finger when I go near my bin now!

In September this year I came across a product called the water bobble. This water bobble bottle is a trendy, reusable and it filters water as I’m drinking. It uses a nifty replaceable carbon filter which are only a few pounds to replace (They say every 300 fills). When water passes through the filter, the carbon removes chlorine and organic contaminants so it taste so much better now.

I wanted a product that I could use normal tap water anywhere when I was out. I had almost STOPPED drinking water at home altogether (apart from when I brushed my teeth) – NOW I whip out my bobble all day long!

Read The Bobble Story

The bobble story www.waterbobble.com/our-story  inspired me to start drinking water again, in fact I bought one that day. I’m happy to say that I am refilling my drinking bottle three or four times a day.

When I’m playing my computer game on the xBox, “Grand Theft Auto V” I manage to drink several bottles of water in one sitting.  I am so bad at the game, I spend my time running away from the Police – This is thirsty work!
