If you have been making a point, as I have, to drink more water, here’s a tip—one that’s so obvious, you may not have actually thought of it.

Make your decent-tasting water more accessible!

I really don’t enjoy the taste of the city water, so I always run it through a Brita filter. Previously, I had a large reservoir-style container. The problem with it was that I had to hold my glass under the spigot, lift and hold the spigot, wait a moment for water to come out of the small hole, and release. Even worse, this thing was a pain to pull out of the refrigerator, set in the sink, fill up, and set back in the fridge.

I have replaced the reservoir with a pitcher. Sure, it doesn’t hold as much, but that’s a good thing. First of all, it easily lifts out of the fridge and I can pour water much faster. It’s also easier to set it under the sink faucet to fill up. Laziness would actually cause me to leave the reservoir in need of a refill for a day or two just because it was such a pain. With the pitcher, I just go ahead and refill it about after every other glass since I’ve already got it out of the fridge anyway.

I’ve been doing exactly what you’re doing at work since I started there because the water probably isn’t safe, let alone good-tasting. Since we moved into this house with a well, I’m doing it at home as well.
