New Year, New You

It’s that time again to set your New Year’s resolutions…and if you’re like us, it’s time to figure out how to stick to those resolutions!

Whether you want to take better care of yourself, lose weight or start other good habits, the key to success is to make small, concrete changes – like putting a PUR faucet filter at your kitchen sink or a PUR water pitcher in your fridge. By drinking more filtered water, you can help yourself stay on track with some of your biggest resolutions, all year long.

Resolution: Eat Healthier

  • Cut out sugary drinks. Stick with PUR filtered water, and flavor it with fresh lemon, lime, cucumber or mint for an extra-refreshing taste.

  • Cook at home instead of going out. Remember that cooking with filtered water can actually make your food taste better.

  • Don’t let unseen contaminants sneak into your drinks and food. PUR faucet filters are certified to reduce over 70 contaminants found in tap water, including 99% of lead.

Resolution: Exercise More

  • Boost your energy level and get revved up to exercise by drinking more water. According to experts, being even a little dehydrated can make you feel tired and unable to focus.

  • Drink water during workouts to keep your muscles performing at their best. The American Council on Exercise recommends drinking 7 to 10 ounces every 10 to 20 minutes while exercising.

  • It’s essential to rehydrate after you exercise – drink water post-workout to replenish the fluids you lost from sweating.

Resolution: Lose Weight

Did you know that drinking more water is proven to help you lose weight? Several studies have shown that drinking plenty of water can aid weight loss in middle-aged and older adults, and it even helps reduce the development of obesity in children.

Resolution: Save Money

They may seem like small purchases, but regularly buying bottled drinks or always stopping at the coffee shop on the way to work really does add up to impact your budget. Try carrying a refillable water bottle and filling it up at home with fresh-tasting, PUR filtered water. By cutting your weekly beverage costs, you could save a lot of money.

Resolution: Help the Environment

Whether you start composting, use your car less, or give up plastic bags, there are so many ways to help support a healthier environment. One easy way is to stop buying single-use bottled water and start filling up a refillable water bottle at your faucet. According to the Earth Day Network, more than three-quarters of the plastic bottles in the US end up in landfills. Make the switch to bringing filtered water from home, and you’ll help keep yourself and the environment healthier.
