Find the Best Reusable Water Bottle for All of Your Standing Desk Needs

by TrueNorth Desks

It can be hard to drink enough water during the day. If you are busy at work, or are just unlikely to remember to make it to the water fountain several times a day, you are not alone. But drinking water throughout the day can help boost your energy levels. Energy levels are also boosted when you work at a standing desk. Put these two together, and you are in for an energetic and productive day! Using a fun, reusable water bottle can help encourage you to drink more water during the day.

The reasons to use a reusable water bottle were mostly listed above, but in addition to those, you will save money when you stop buying bottled waters, not to mention it is much better for the environment.

It is important to stay hydrated during the day in order to forego that mid-afternoon slump. Even if you are working at an adjustable height desk, which will help you maintain your energy and creativity, drinking water is an added bonus and great for your overall health. If you have a hard time drinking water all day because you just don’t like water, then you can add a squeeze of lemon or lime to the cold water in your reusable bottle. After a few days of drinking cold refreshing water at your stand up desk, you will feel the difference.

Take a look at a few of the qualities you will want to consider before purchasing your reusable water bottle. This should help you find the best reusable water bottle that you can take from home, to your car, train ride, or carry in your bag while you walk or bike, then keep it at your standup desk. You will then be prepared to drink water throughout the day at your standing workstation.

 

  • Keep it cold

 

      • If drinking lukewarm water does not appeal to you, search for a cup that is insulated and large enough for plenty of water, requiring fewer refills.

 

  • Room for extras

 

      • Many people will want to add a squeeze of lemon or lime to their water. If this is the case for you, be sure the top of your water bottle opens wide enough to fit those extras in easily.
      • While exploring the tops of water bottles, find one that is going to get you drinking the most. If you are unlikely to unscrew the top of a cumbersome bottle every time you want to take a sip, search for a straw top instead.

 

  • Portability

 

    • If you have a long commute, whether on a train, in the car, or especially if you are walking or riding a bike, then portability of your water bottle will be very important.
    • For your car, you want to be sure that your bottle is not too wide to fit in your cup holder.
    • At standing desks, the size of the bottle may not matter much, but you want to  be sure it won’t sweat too much and get your papers and workspace wet.
    • If you play to carry your water bottle in a bag while you bike or walk, you may want to stay on the smaller side so you do not add too much weight to your tote.

No matter which water bottle you find suits your needs best, you will not regret adding more water to your daily routine and staying hydrated while working at your standing desk. For more information on standing desks, request a brochure from True North Desks.
