Water is the elixir of life

How much water do you drink during the day? Do you drink your 8 glasses, like you know you should?  Drinking 8 glasses of water each day is no small task. It feels more like an assignment.

In India, it is super HOT and HUMID. Your required 8 glasses of H2O will be a mere drop in the bucket. You WILL drink a lot more water. 
Here are a few common-sense safety-tips:
  • Be sure to drink only bottled water. 
  • Make sure the safety seal is intact. If the seal is broken, ask for another bottle.
  • Insist that you open your own bottled water.
  • Avoid drinking anything with ice-cubes.
  • Save some bottled water for the hotel room. You want to use it when brushing your teeth.
One final caveat: As you busily drink all that water, keep in mind when and where you can use the bathroom! Timing is everything, if you get my drift...
In my next post, I will discuss (ahem) bathroom duty.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Hmm I have an 'environmental' thing about bottled water but not when it comes to the East! When travelling I am grateful for an ability to hold on for up to 14 hours! Really!

Brian, Soda is the #1 culprit for obesity (in my opinion). Also, it's so sugary it makes you even more thirsty!

Baino, I totally agree with you on the bottle thing. I only drink bottled water when traveling.

OMG you can hold it in for FOUR hours?! Girl, you are good! I think my bladder is the size of a thimble! lol
