  • 4 Tips For Staying Hydrated At Work

    Where do you spend most of your time? If you’re like most Americans, the unfortunate but honest answer to that question is probably “work.”

    According to a 2015 article by CNN, “Americans work an average of 34.4 hours a week, longer than their counterparts in the world's largest economies.” If you count the time you spend working from home, answering emails on your phone, and just generally worrying about work when you’re not there, it’s probably much more.

    Healthy habits that are relatively easy to stick with while at home, but tend to be trickier to manage when we’re at work. As we’ve discussed in previous posts, staying properly hydrated is one of the best things you can do to support overall wellness. In fact, dehydration directly affects your work performance, as it can lead to fatigue and lack of focus.

    As makers of top quality water bottles with fruit infusers, Define Bottle is highly invested in helping everyone stay hydrated and healthy. So here are some of our best tips for staying hydrated when you’re at work.

    1. Eat Foods That Have High Water Content

    One thing that you can do to stay hydrated at work actually has nothing to do with drinking more water at all; simply snacking on fruits and veggies that are high in water content can help to boost your overall hydration. According to Nutrisavings, celery sticks, baby tomatoes, melons, cucumbers, grapefruits, carrots, strawberries, and cauliflower can help get more water into your diet!

    2. Ask For A Straw

    Another surprising way to encourage yourself to stay hydrated during the day is to use a straw, or ask for a straw when you go to lunch at your favorite restaurant. As reports, “drinking from a straw can help you drink more in the long run. You’ll sip and sip, not realizing how much you’ve actually had. Sure, you could probably drink just as much by chugging, but sipping from a straw takes less effort so you’re more inclined to do it.”

    3. Avoid Salty Snacks

    If you’re determined to snack on more foods that have a high water content, just make sure that you don’t undo all that effort by eating high sodium foods the rest of the time. Salt has a dehydrating effect on the body, and if you make it a habit to eat potato chips, pretzels, salted peanuts or other salty foods you could still end up feeling the negative effects of dehydration. If you just can’t say no to these salty snacks, remember it means you’ll have to drink even MORE water to make up for them!

    4. Get A Water Bottle With A Fruit Infuser

    One of the easiest ways to get excited about staying hydrated at work is to get your very own water bottle with a fruit infuser! Define Bottles make it easy and convenient to drink more water because they allow you to flavor it with delicious fruits and vegetables. The combinations are endless and we bet you’ll be surprised how many times you refill it throughout the day!

  • Even More Reasons to Stay Hydrated with Define

    Here at Define, we love talking about hydration. In fact, we’re crazy about it. We want to help keep individuals hydrated, refreshed, and in the healthiest possible way. Our water bottles with fruit infuser encourage individuals to drink more water overall, and without all the sugars you’ll find in soda. Naturally-flavored water, and lots of it, can provide these additional benefits for your body.

    Oral Health

    Not only is water great for your skin and digestion, as we talked about in a previous post, but consuming water is excellent for oral health. By consuming water, you are eliminating many sugars that cause tooth decay from your diet. Additionally, tap water has fluoride in it that has been shown to be a safe and effective way to protect your teeth from cavities. If you live in a place where the tap water tastes great or even if you use a filtered pitcher, fill up your water bottles with fruit infuser and keep hydrating!

    Energy Levels

    Many different components affect a person’s energy levels, but hydration is definitely a major factor. Being properly hydrated can not only improve overall energy levels and mood, but also can improve brain function. By remaining hydrated, you’re going to feel less brain fog and give your body the fuel it needs to function.

    Body Temperature

    Making sure you get plenty of water helps your body to regulate its internal temperature. When a human exercises, the body regulates its temperature through processes such as sweating. When you sweat, your body loses water and has to be rehydrated or you risk heat-related illnesses. Grabbing some water bottles with fruit infusers make you want to keep drinking water all day long!

  • Reasons To Buy Fruit Infuser Bottles For Your Kids And Grandkids

    When you’re juggling a job, a house, and multiple kids, keeping them properly hydrated is probably the furthest thing from your mind. Some days it probably feels like it’s all you can do to make sure they’re fed and fully clothed before it’s time to dash out the door for school. Soft drinks like soda, iced tea, lemonade, and Sunny D (yes, any sweetened drink is considered a soft drink!) are conveniently bottled making them really easy to toss in a lunchbox or backpack. Unfortunately, these kinds of drinks are one of the main causes of childhood obesity, a health epidemic that’s currently sweeping America. Here are just a few reasons why buying fruit infuser bottles for your kids is one of the best health decisions you can make for your family.

    Delicious Hydration

    More than half of children and teenagers in the United States might not be properly hydrated, according to a nationwide study from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health. In fact, 54.5% of the students in the study had urine concentrations that qualified them as below their minimum daily water intake, reported CNN. For most kids, plain water isn’t very attractive, but water with delicious fruit in it? Now you’re talking.

    Better After-School Performance

    One result of making sure children have a water bottle with fruit in it is that they’ll begin to reap the health benefits of adequate hydration. Some of these benefits include improved cardiovascular health, and stronger muscles and joints. These are all things that can help your child perform better in after-school sports like football, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, and volleyball.

    Nips Sugar Addiction In The Bud

    The biggest reason to start your kids on fruit infused water bottles as soon as possible is that they’ll be saved the pain of sugar addiction. When you’re raised on soft drinks, they become a habit that’s very difficult to break as an adult.

  • Why Soft Drinks Aren’t Really "Thirst-Quenching" Or "Refreshing" At All

    We hear it in every commercial and read it in every print ad designed to make us buy more soft drinks: “ice cold!” “refreshing!” “quenches your thirst!” These slogans make us excited to take a big gulp of the first soft drink we can get our hands on, especially if the weather is hot and we’re feeling thirsty. The only problem is that they’re not exactly true. No, scratch that. They’re flat out lies. We’re not just saying that because we make a water bottle fruit infuser. The truth is that just because it’s a liquid doesn’t make it thirst-quenching. In fact, many of these soft drinks are so packed with artificial sweeteners and preservatives that they actually make us feel more thirst over time!

    So we reach for another soda and...the vicious cycle continues month after month. In order to feel true, thirst-quenching refreshment, you have to drink water, but that water doesn’t have to be tasteless or boring. In fact, with our fruit infused water bottles, you can create a flavorful, energy-boosting beverage for a fraction of the cost of a soft-drink. But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves. Let’s look closer at these thirst-quenching claims made by big soda companies.

    According to the Globe and Mail, “The term ‘soft drink’ refers to any beverage with added sugar or other sweetener and includes pop, fruit punch, lemonade, sweetened iced tea, sweetened powdered drinks such as Kool-Aid and sports and energy drinks.” When you consume these ultra-sweet beverages, it causes your blood sugar levels to skyrocket. When repeated day after day, this can lead to a condition called osmotic diuresis in which sugar leaves the body via the kidneys, carrying desperately needed water with it into the urine.

    If you truly want to quench your thirst and hydrate your body so that it can maintain proper weight, energy, and immune function, reach for our handy water bottle fruit infusers instead of those dangerous soft drinks.
  • Micronutrients: 4 Elusive Minerals

    We’ve previously talked about vitamins that are essential to get your body in peak performance that can easily be incorporated into your water bottle fruit infuser.  But micronutrients are more than just vitamins.  Micronutrients also encompass a variety of minerals that the body needs in small amounts to function.  These four minerals can be found in fruits that can easily be incorporated into your Define water bottle.  Take a look.


    When you hear calcium you should probably think bones.  Calcium is a main component in the development, growth, and strength of bones and teeth.  Furthermore, the movement of calcium into and from cells can signal many different cellular functions.  It’s so important for children and older women to get high levels of calcium in their diets to maintain proper skeletal function.  Toss some limes into your Define bottle for added calcium.  Or if you want to mix things up try some rhubarb or kumquats.


    Iron can be difficult for many women to get enough of in their diets.  It’s essential in the creation of red blood cells and the function of hemoglobin which transports oxygen throughout the body.  While eating a salad with leafy greens or even a nice steak will help increase your iron intake, so will throwing some peaches, berries, or coconut into your Define water bottle.   


    Muscles function on a sodium and potassium pump system that tells your muscles how to move based on the fluctuations in the levels in the tissues.  That’s why when you are low on potassium you can easily get muscle cramps.  If you enjoy working out toss some bananas or some persimmons in with your water and with Define you’re set for the gym.  


    While vitamin C can help boost your immune system, zinc is essential in white blood cell and antibody function.  This non-water soluble  so it is possible to get too much with a supplement.  Adding apricots, berries, and grapes into your Define water bottle will help increase your zinc intake at a safe pace.
