wellness wednesday: Water intake and bkr

Even beauty bloggers need a day job, and mine is one I genuinely love! I am a nurse. So, health and wellness are topics that interest me on several levels. I want to use Wednesdays to talk about current health topics, silly anecdotes about my patients (names changed to comply with HIPPA, of course) etc! Welcome to my first Wellness Wednesday :). Today, I want to keep things simple.

We all know that drinking water is important.

You've heard it enough times, that water is vital to the body in order to function properly. I won't preach on it. But I will give you a new way to think about it.

The body needs 2 Liters of water per day..
..though I like to think of that as just a basic guideline, 
since every body's needs are different,
foods also contain a certain amount of fluid,
and the body's thirst mechanism is the best, most reliable indicator for how much you should drink.

A little simple math for you here: 1 fluid Liter equals 1000 milliliters (mL), so 2 L equals 2000 mL. And 2000 mL equals four standard bkr bottles at 500 mL each.

Easy peasy! I can absolutely consume four full bkr bottles a day!

If you've never heard of bkr (pronounced "beaker"), they are super chic reusable glass bottles with colorful, soft silicone sleeves.

From the website:

"bkr is the bottle equivalent of the perfect t-shirt. It’s super-luxe and soft. It feels right and fits right, it's effortless, and it becomes your staple. You can't just have one and you can’t help but fall in love with it. Owners report that they are "obsessed," "head over heels," and drinking "10x as much water" as a result."

Full review coming soon..! But before that, I have other plans for tomorrow when my week-long blogging adventure continues!
