We all know that water is essential to good health, but let’s face it — many of us don’t drink enough of it throughout the day. The current recommendation is to drink 12.5 to 15.5 cups per day, or 100 to 124 ounces. If drinking enough water is easier said than done for you, let us introduce you to timed water bottles. These colorful bottles include time-tracking lines and motivational phrases to make staying hydrated fun and at least a little easier, especially if you’re the kind of person who loves to hit small goals every day. Each time you hit a new tracking line on the bottle, it’s like checking off an item on your to-do list: satisfying and worthy of a minicelebration. Not to mention, it’ll be sure to help you accomplish your hydration goals.
Many of these motivational, timed water bottles are meant to be finished over the course of a day. That means no getting up to constantly refill your bottle (though you might need to take a couple of bathroom breaks) and no excuses when it comes to staying hydrated. Fill it up in the morning, set it on your desk, and get sipping! Some may require a refill, but either way, they’re sure to help you do so without too much effort. Stay hydrated by shopping these 12 cute options for tracking water bottles ahead.
