I’m not very good about drinking enough water - mostly because I forget.  In an effort to drink more water, I try to keep a glass next to me as often as I think of it.  Fairly recently, I found out about the Camelbak water bottle, which has a bite valve on a straw.  

Drinking water is not a hard thing to do.  It just means that I have to stop what I’m doing for a moment to get up and refill my water.  Or perhaps, to pick up my cup to drink.  I think, “I’ll do it after I finish this.”  Then I get sidetracked and don’t remember.  I thought, “if it’s on a straw, I won’t have to use my hand.  I can drink while I work!”

I purchased myself the biggest Camelbak I found at the store (fewer trips to refill), which was 1 liter.  I love it!  I keep it at work, so that I don’t forget to drink during the day, but take it home with me on the weekends.  I really miss it if I forget it somewhere.  It’s great because it’s incredibly mobile.  I drink a little in the car, a little on the couch, a little while playing video games, etc.  It has served its purpose quite well.

I am thankful that God provided me with a Camelbak as a way to care for me.  I don't seem to be sick as often!

  1. I just got my first Camelbak - at age 56! Dad bought me a beautiful new bicycle and I must keep hydrated while riding. The Camelbak is so easy as I don't have to tip it back to drink. I like it so well that I am using it other places I go as well. I can thank God for technology - like 21 speeds on a bicycle so I can pedal more easily uphill - and the spillproof sippng action of the Camelbak. Love you!
