I’ve been traveling a lot this summer; my schedule has been jam packed with events, conferences, and races. And while I love to travel, I often find myself returning home feeling depleted and lethargic because I tend to drink too much coffee, stay up too late while still getting up early, and in general, just not taking as great of care of myself as I should.
This past week, while on a week long roadtrip from Portland to San Francisco for the EMPOWER Race + Yoga Festival, I decided to do things a little differently. While I still admittedly consumed far too much coffee, and stayed up far later than I should have, I made a point to drink more water and stay on top of my hydration.
To make it easier to stay on top of my hydration, I packed my favorite Takeya water bottle, which is not only insulated to keep beverages cooler (or hotter) longer, but also has the best, easiest to drink from lid ever, and kept a cooler full of sparkling water in the car. Having both the convenient and easy to use bottle and sparkling water on hand made it easier than ever to be diligent with my hydration.
And the best part is that I returned home from my trip with energy. I actually felt good and refreshed, instead of lethargic and depleted and was able to jump into my regular week with ease.

Why sparkling water?
Sparkling water is great for many reasons. For starters, it features many natural minerals, like calcium and magnesium, which are essential to everyday cellular activity. And it’s a healthy and natural carbonated alternative to sugary sodas and juice drinks.
