The easiest way to stay hydrated wherever you are in the world? Tote along your own water bottle.
You can eliminate the risk of dehydration, forget about the daily shopping for water and cut down on plastic waste. So essential when travelling, but really, we should take a water bottle wherever we go in daily life. Office, gym, shopping, walking, commuting, picnics. Its such a great habit.
Drinking water makes us feel so refreshed that it actually improves our state of mind. Even mild dehydration can result in a significant drop-off in energy and mood; headaches; difficulty in concentrating and feeling fatigued.
Water bottles are essential for all Sharing Bali & Beyond travellers. We’re active everyday.
So think about how much water you need for your activities. Possibly 1500ml for a hike in hot conditions. 500ml for a quick workout. You know your body. Be prepared.
Hikers – you may want to invest in a hydration bladder for your day pack if you’re a big drinker. Personally, I’ve given up on bladders as they are a bacteria bomb when you live in the tropics. But if they work for you, here’s some good cleaning tips
There’s endless water bottle choices each different in size, style, and function. I turned to Biome for advice. Their product information on each bottle is so specific and useful.
They hit 5 out of 6 gold hearts on my “feel good, look good, do good” packing criteria.
♥ Active Travel – Makes hydration oh so easy.
♥ Simple Luxury – Functional and looks amazing.
♥ Eco Friendly – No nasties and helps us say no to plastic bottles.
♥ Versatile – BBBYO bottle works for cool water and hot coffee, so smart.
♥ Lives On – No limits, it goes where you go.
Of course, you need access to safe drinking water to refill your water bottle, so check with your hotel before you book. As a retreat/trip operator I consider it my responsibility to work this out. Our hosts have it covered even in a remote island on Timor-Leste. We can refill our bottles in the dining room 24/7.
Don’t leave home without one! The investment in a durable, no drips, eco-friendly, gorgeous water bottle is worth every $.
