Like many of you, I have recently read and reread Rachel Hollis’ book Girl, Wash Your Face. If you haven’t read this yet go order it now here, or go check it out at the library or borrow it from a friend. Each chapter begins with a specific lie Hollis once believed that left her feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, or ready to give up. She helps women unpack the limiting mindsets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward. It’s truly inspirational and I think that
Rachel also has a ton of inspirational YouTube videos and a podcast called, Rise, which is funny, uplifting, and informative. I would highly recommend it. Many of you are also part of her annual #Last90Days challenge where she challenges her listeners to do, “Five to Thrive.” These are five things Rachel feels like are essential to thrive, and things that have worked for her:
- Drinking half your body weight (in ounces) of water every day
- Exercising at least 30 minutes a day, every day
- Giving up one category of food that you know is not good for you
- Getting up one hour earlier each day to spend time doing something for yourself
- Writing down 10 things you’re thankful for every day

Add lemon or orange or even herbs if you want to mix up of the flavor but make sure you’re drinking eight glasses a day.
The ONE thing on this list that I don’t do daily is drinking enough water. I know of the many benefits of drinking water, but it’s something I definitely have slacked on. So, I went on a search to find a water bottle that would help me get motivated to drink more water. I wanted to share this with you so that you can thrive too!
This is my favorite! Zak! Designs’ HydraTrak Tumbler helps keep track of how much water you are drinking. You monitor your water intake with included rainbow bands; wear the rainbow bands as bracelets, or roll them up the tumbler. I can’t see myself wearing them as bracelets, but that may be a fun idea for kids. You can remove the straw and use the built-in silicone stopper to plug the hole for a spill-proof lid; easy to remove lid has silicone gasket for secure closure Insulated double wall construction keeps drinks colder longer and reduces condensation. It fits in most cup holders. This bottle holds 20 oz. and is made of Tritan plastic that is durable and BPA-free; top rack dishwasher safe.
This is a good choice if you are looking for a glass water bottle. The bottle is timed marked with measurements and hold 32 ounces of water. It comes with a removable silicone sleeve to provide protection from drops. The lid is leak-proof and has a carrying strap.
This drink reminder bottle comes in a variety of colors and also has a removable filter if you like to infuse your water with fruit. It has hourly time markers to help you stay accountable. It is leak proof and is made from BPA-free plastic. This is one of the larger water bottles I’ve seen. It holds 36 ounces of water, so you will need
If you want a fun visual reminder to drink more water, then this may be the water bottle for you. This one is a bit pricey, but it glows to remind you to stay hydrated, tracks water intake, and syncs with smartphones (iOS and Android) via Bluetooth. Integrates with Fitbit, Apple Watch, and other activity trackers to adjust your daily water goal to your daily activity level. Holds 24 ounces. Fits in a standard cup holder. No charging needed.
I really like that this one has an inspirational quote to inspire you all day. It is 100% BPA FREE Tritan Plastic Water Bottle: Shatter-proof, scratch-resistant, leak-proof, and
