How to survive the holidays.
The holidays in Manhattan are one of the most beautiful yet busy times of year. The hunt for perfect gifts for everyone on the list inevitably requires a trek across the city by train, bus and on foot. Parties are jam-packed, filled with less-than-healthy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails galore. And, end of year recap or Q1 forecasting often has 9-to-5ers at their desks until 7, 8 or later.
When I start to feel the pinch, what do I do? I drink.
Water. Lots of it.
Why? Hydration is a huge step toward looking and feeling our best.
And, right now, water is always with me in a bobble Sport. It’s a new slim-style bottle, designed to fit in most equipment at the gym or bikes at the indoor cycling studio. And, it’s convenient because I can fill it at a sink or fountain anywhere and still eliminate chemicals and impurities via a carbon filter contained within the bottle, itself.
In the morning, I toss in a few slices of fresh lemon to detox. (Plus, if you don’t love the taste of water, or lack thereof, lemon, lime, berries and/or cucumber can easily come to your rescue.)
At the office, my bottle is always on my desk, next to my computer. (If that’s not enough, set Outlook “sip” reminders for yourself every hour.)
And, I’ve got it with me around town, too.
Every New Yorker has a quirk or two. Mine is: I never, ever get on a subway without water. Because, hey, ya never know.
So, here’s to celebrating the holidays in good health. Eat, drink and be merry. And never find yourself on the subway, or at the office, thirsty again.
