Healthy Swellness: Brita giveaway!

April 26, 2019


Who’s with me in that you struggle to hydrate well each day? I’m actually no longer convinced you need eight glasses of water daily (and if you’re ready to debate that with me, may I direct to this this New York Times article “No, You Do Not Have to Drink 8 Glasses of Water a Day”  written by a researcher who points out that that number comes from a study that people/mediastarting touting as a source ages ago but everyone seems to have ignored a key point to the findings.

That said, I do think I could afford to hydrate more often with water and less often with other beverages (juice, cocktails, wine, coffee). And I, of course, think you need to hydrate adequately to keep your body functioning well.

One tool that helps me with drinking more water is my Brita. In the summer, a glass of cold, crisp water is such a relief on those humid, sticky days (especially when I get home from a run). And I appreciate that the Brita filters out impurities, which I think helps the water taste a bit purer and thus, makes me more likely to drink more of it.

Because I’m a Brita fan and because I’d like to help one of you hydrate better, and let’s all do our part in reducing the number of plastic water bottles ending up in landfills, I’ve got a fantastic Brita prize package to give away! The prize is valued at $100; here’s what it includes:

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Check out my Instagram post for this Brita giveaway and enter on Instagram (details are on the IG post).
  2. Get an additional entry by commenting on this blog post and sharing how you drink your Brita filtered water (Room temp? On ice? With a slice of lime? Cucumber?)

This giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, May 1, 2019. It is open to Canadian residents. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on my Instagram Stories.  The prize is awarded as is. I am operating this giveaway on my own and it is not associated with Instagram.

Here’s to happy hydrating!

    I like my filtered water on ice, sometimes with a few berries thrown in!

    I don’t currently have a Brita but if I did I’d try the cucumber water with some mint. Sounds so refreshing!

    I don’t currently have a Brita, but if I did I’d drink it ice cold with a couple slices of lemon & cucumber! So fresh!

    I don’t have a brita but would love to drink with a squeeze of lemon @rebeccamytong

    I love drinking cold water from the tap but a Brita would be helpful since I find mornings especially there’s a chlorine taste in tap water Thanks

    I use to love cold water, now I find I drink more water that is just slightly above room temperature. I like a little lemon in the mornings to kick off the day.

    I do not have a Brita, yet, I like my water cool and I do drink a lot of water.

    I know I need to drink more!

  • 19. Mike  |  May 1, 2019 at 1:46 AM

    Drink more water at home than at work so that’s a problem. Tend to drink more with ice and lemon.

  • 20. Kellie Walsh  |  May 1, 2019 at 10:58 AM

    I drink approx 4 glasses of water at home with ice. I know if I had that Brita bottle, I would be taking that baby everywhere with me! Fantastic GA!!
