Are you a Sipper or a Chugger?
Oct 16, 2018
No matter what your style is, your drinkware BFF is waiting for you. We all have our favorite beverages. For some, the morning coffee is a completely non-negotiable must-have that only a true disaster could keep them away from. For others, those doctor-recommended 8 glasses of water keep them refilling their bottles all day long. But regardless of what we drink, how we drink our beverages may reflect our personalities and reveal some insights into how we approach the world. We're definitely not medical professionals or psychologists, we know this because we live and breathe drinkware. We also know that, no matter how you prefer to consume your beverage, there's a piece of drinkware out there that you'll love.
Sippers vs. Chuggers
As drinkware experts, we know there are two types of people in this world - sippers and chuggers.
The chuggers fill a bottle at the watercooler only to gulp the entire thing before they even get back to their desks. For the chuggers, hydrating is a task to complete - the faster the better. They tackle life head-on, so those wide mouth sports bottles are right up their alleys.
On the other hand, the sippers of the world make their cups of coffee or tea in the morning and casually enjoy their beverages all morning long. The sipper likes to stop and smell the roses - approaches life as a journey. A high-performance copper vacuum insulated tumbler is a sipper's best friend. Why rush when you know that your coffee will be nice and hot for the next eight hours?
No matter how you quickly you consume your drinks, it's important to stay hydrated. The latest guidelines from the National Academy of Medicine recommend that most women consume about 91 ounces—that’s actually about 9 cups of total water a day. Men need a bit more; about 125 ounces (or 13 cups) a day. But there’s good news: that total includes other beverages (like coffee, tea, soda, and milk) as well as foods (for example, one medium apple translates to about 6 ounces of fluid).
Since water makes up more than two-thirds of the weight of the human body, staying hydrated is important for a few reasons. Water lubricates and cushions your joints, protects your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues, and transports wastes from your body. Being hydrated helps with memory and cognition; it also helps to improve your mood and immune function (National Academy of Medicine).
