See this? This is about to be your life saver.
I’m not kidding. It helps with so much, well, so much in regards to staying hydrated.
Now I know you’re supposed to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day… but how many of you guys actually drink that much? Enter the STRAW. It will help you chug back that water in record time. That cup of cranberry juice that you didn’t realize wasn’t sweetened? Grab a straw. Didn’t read my other blog post and accidentally poured yourself a nice glass of orange juice after cleaning your teeth? Stick a straw in that cup! That really funky, kind of brownish green smoothie your mum made, filled with half the vegetables from the garden… and maybe even some dirt? Pull out your straw, take a couple long gulps and ta-dah! Smoothie gone! Just throw a smile on your face and she’ll never know the difference!
I’m not sure what it is about using a straw that’s so helpful. Whether it’s that you can swallow your drink easier because you’re not tilting your head back, or because you can do other things while you’re slurping away, it definitely would have helped with all those yucky medicines and drinks from my childhood, and even my adulthood. Plus drinking those 2 liters of water a day helps flush out toxins, rehydrate your body, and clear up any skin blemishes! So pick up a packet of straws next time you’re at the grocery store, and get sipping!
NOTE: I don’t think these straws will really help you drink a lot more liquid, but they are a lot of fun to play around with.
Be warned though, funky straws and straws in general do help you drink liquid faster, so if you’re trying NOT to get full before a meal, or really trying to savor your drink (like me with any glass of chocolate milk I ever consume), it’s probably better to avoid the infamous straw, especially if it’s a silly one.
