I received Contigo Cortland water bottles for review purposes. All opinions expressed are my own.
I am really terrible when it comes to drinking enough water. I don’t think I have ever made it to the daily recommended intake of 64 ounces. On the other hand, my husband and kids are like camels when it comes to water. They are constantly refilling their water cups and bottles. I have to challenge myself to try to drink more water.
It helps up my motivation level to remind myself of all the health benefits of drinking water. Do I want healthy, glowing skin? Yes, of course! So I take a few more gulps of water…
5 Benefits of Drinking Water
Healthy-looking, clearer skin. Water removes impurities from our bodies. If we don’t drink enough of it, those impurities can come out through our pores. Yuck. Drink water to improve skin’s appearance.
Prevents weight gain. Our bodies can confuse thirst with hunger – leading us to eat more food when our body is really trying to say, “Drink water!”
Better Digestion. We need plenty of water to help our body digest food. Better digestive health can even help you lose weight. I have also heard drinking ice cold water can even burn calories!
Strengthens Immune System. A hydrated body functions better on all levels, which helps increase our immunity.
Energy. If your body starts to dehydrate, you feel sluggish and tired. Fight dehydration fatigue by drinking water.
Those are only a few of the many reasons drinking water is good for you. An eco-friendly reuseable, BPA-free Contigo water bottle can help you keep up with your daily water intake. I like to fill my bottle in the morning to the 24 ounce line and try to drink it down by lunchtime. Then, I refill it back to the 24 ounce line and drink it down again in time for an evening refill. I think you get the idea!
I really like our Contigo Cortland reusable water bottles because they have the 100% spill-proof AUTOSEAL technology. The AUTOSEAL technology means the water bottle knows when to close. You simply press the button to sip and release when you’re done. The bottle seals between sips.
My kids are required to bring a refillable water bottle to school every day, and leaky water bottles can make a real mess inside their backpack (not to mention ruin homework pages and books). If I am taking my water bottle out with me, I definitely don’t want it to spill if it gets knocked on its side. A spill-proof and leak-proof design is very important to us.
The Contigo Cortland water bottle is easy to take just about anywhere, thanks to the sturdy clip-on handle. Clip your bottle onto bags, backpacks, you name it. I’m also a fan of how this water bottle actually fits into my vehicle’s cup holders. This bottle was made to fit most cup holders.
Another thing I like about Contigo water bottles is that I can wash them in the dishwasher (top rack only). That is a real time saver because all the kids use a water bottle every day and it needs to be washed every night. The easy clean lid opens up so you can clean all the parts inside.
I’m also a fan of the spout cover to help keep germs off of the part of the water bottle where we put our mouths! Contigo water bottles have a Lifetime Guarantee.
