I’m sure I’m not alone when I ask, why is it so hard to drink enough water during the day? I know how important it is to keep hydrated, but remembering to drink water always escapes my mind, and I feel tired and dehydrated most of the time. The solution? Buying a big water bottle and keeping it on your desk during the day.

They’re handy for so many different reasons. First of all, it motivates you to get to the bottom before the end of the day, which keeps you on track to hit your daily target. It also stops you from having to make ten trips to the kitchen to fill up your regular sized-water bottle, which is such an effort we end up avoiding it altogether.

Given that our brains are made from 70% water (wild fact), it’s so important that we drink enough water every day. Dehydration has a whole stack of nasty downsides like fatigue, brain fog and dull skin — so drink up!

Here is a handy little round-up of big water bottles that’ll have you smashing your daily water intake in no time.

  • unless you have a fridge that can fit such a large water bottle (or you intend to drink quickly) … IMO I would personally go for a smaller version + refill 2-3 times a day.

    My reasoning (OK, I admit – AU is coming into winter months now) … if you live in Australia, during summer months – any water bottle left out on a bench/table/etc … after 4-6 hours, the water will start to smell “funky” … due to bacteria growing inside – due to major heat/tempatures.

    Side note … you should be thoroughly cleaning your water bottle 1-2 times a week no matter what.
