Your Polar Bottle is its happiest when it’s snugly secured to your backcountry pack or clipped on your bike and flying down the road, but just like your dog, your Polar Bottle wants to go everywhere with you. It wants to hang out in the office, join you on your errand runs and take that business trip to Chicago. And unlike you’re dog, it can. Carrying your Polar Bottle with you on your outdoor adventures as well as through the weekly grind can help keep you hydrated and save you some hard-earned cash. Here are some of the best places to take your reusable water bottle and why.
One of the keys to maintaining good health and high energy is hydration. We all suffer from occasional afternoon energy crashes and a lack of water may be to blame. According to a small study published earlier this year in the Journal of Nutrition, mild dehydration among test subjects resulted in fatigue and loss of focus. Keep your Polar bottle on your desk or close by to encourage yourself to drink water consistently throughout the day.
To the Airport:
The Transportation Security Administration prohibits airline passengers from carrying more than 3.4 ounces of any liquid, including water, through airport security. If you’ve traveled recently you probably noticed that the price of bottle water inside airport terminals runs a small fortune. Save your wallet some bills and the environment some waste by carrying your empty Polar bottle through security and refilling it from the drinking fountain, one of the food vendors or a flight attendant.
In the Car:
Having water with you while you run errands can be convenient when your mouth runs dry and it can keep you from buying unnecessary beverages and snacks while you’re out and about. According to the U.S. Public Health Service, thirst is often interpreted by the brain as hunger. When we’re in the grocery store or pumping gas we often react by buying a handy, and often unhealthy snack. Having your Polar bottle on hand will prevent you from purchasing unnecessary snacks, beverages and bottled water.
To the Gym:
Hydration is important for overall health but it is incredibly important during moderate and vigorous exercise. Adequate hydration during exercise ensures optimal performance and safety. Water loss, as little as two percent of your body weight, can cause a drop in blood volume and force the heart to work harder in order to circulate oxygenated blood throughout your body. Working out with your Polar bottle will encourage you to drink more water during and after your workout, leaving you hydrated and energized.
