If you've met me, you probably already know that I don't drink enough water. Try as I might, I'm in a near-constant state of dehydration, thanks to my penchant for coffee and wine and other things that tend to suck the life right outta ya. But, they say the first step is admitting that you have a problem. I assume that means the second step is doing something about it.
Wait, back up to that first step. How can you tell whether you're dehydrated? Well, I know I am, but if you're not sure, you can take this quiz over at Healthy Beginnings magazine to find out.
Now, how will Mr. Dehydration change his habits to become Mr. Super Hydrated? Maybe a little support from the online community would help. If you're in his boat, check out the Do the Reusable Challenge sponsored by Aladdin. Aladdin makes water bottles and mugs and stuff, and they're willing to give you a little discount on their products if you join the cause. But, let's face it, you probably already have a reusable bottle or travel mug or three stashed in your kitchen cupboard, so you should take the challenge to help you remember to use it.
P.S. Did you know that getting into the habit of carrying a reusable water bottle can actually help you drink MORE water than relying on glasses and disposable bottles? (Duh, because it's, like, a constant reminder! That's what I'm counting on.)
