Maintaining your recommended daily water intake will be a breeze with these stylish and lightweight bottles. By SAMANTHA FRANCIS

Staying hydrated is a habit that most of us have been instilled with since we were little, from being sent off to school with water bottles to being reminded to drink up after a day out playing in the sun. But as adults, our water drinking habits can change drastically, especially with easy access to caffeine, alcohol, and bubble tea.

Unlike these beverages, which contain empty calories with little beneficial nutrients for the body, water hydrates the body without leading to weight gain or obesity. If you’re based in sunny Singapore, the Health Promotion Board recommends a daily intake of eight to 10 glasses of 250 ml each.

Aside from helping body systems to function properly, drinking sufficient water also aids digestion, prevents constipation, regulate body temperature, and even rids toxins. To improve your water drinking habits, consider setting a daily water intake goal and creating the habit of drinking at least one glass of water before each meal. A good way to drink more water is to always have a reusable water bottle by your side—this also ensures that you won’t have to buy single-use plastic bottles while you’re out and about.
