Confessions of a water bottle addict
I'll confess - since founding FOSH and using a reusable water bottle 24/7 I've become quite the water bottle addict. Such is the usual nature of 'addiction' that I felt compelled to write this article to confess. Unlike many addictions though, it's not something I should be feeling guilty about. In fact it should be the opposite, I should be celebrating this newfound habit.
It's something I've gradually noticed change in my daily habits. I was never the best at hydration, in fact I was always pretty bad at it. Yet I'm finding that having a reusable bottle by my side helps me drink more fluids throughout the day & stay hydrated.
We founded FOSH on the premise that single-use plastic water bottles were bad, but other than reducing the need for single-use plastic bottles, we're starting to think that there are more benefits to a reusable water bottle than initially meet the eye.
When I have my bottle at hand it becomes a part of my life. As humans we are habitual - we all love habits don’t we. The world is full of addictive stereotypes - phones, drugs, smoking, work, play, etc. Are these underlying habitual factors causing my new addiction to my water bottle?
As an ex-smoker I get the feeling of smoking a cigarette when I bring the flip lid spout of my water bottle to my lips. But instead of dangerous chemicals and a shot of nicotine entering my system, I'm topping my body up with good stuff.
It's why we came up with the slogan "phone, wallet, keys, FOSH". We can guarantee you that you'll feel the same and it'll soon become an everyday essential.
