This Chic Bangle Set Might Just Be The Answer To Your Wah-Wah Deficit
If you’re like Team FBP, you are alllllllways looking for ways to boost your health (Diana), de-chub (Dana) and look amazeballs, with shiny hair, glowing skin and fewer surface wrinkles + crinkles (Diana and Dana).
Happily, drinking tons of water accomplishes all of those feats.
Unhappily, as you’re cranking through a busy day, it isn’t always easy to remember to drink the optimal amount, which is pretty much eight 8-ounce glasses.
Enter this fashion-y answer to a wellness-y problem: The eight-pack of Thrive Wellness Bangles pictured above.
Crafted from solid stainless steel, they’re stamped with inspo words that start with letters that spell the word “Thriving”:
Groovy, no? We thought so. And we love that that they make a pain-in-the-ass chore (i.e., trying to recall whether you’re on your fourth glass of the day or your fifth) a lot easier - and cooler, to boot.
Simply slip all eight on one arm in the morning, and as you’re going about your day, move one bangle to your opposite arm as soon as you finish each glass of H20. By the time you hit the hay, you should have come full circle, with the entire set of eight on again.
According to the duo behind the bracelets - health coaches Deanna Durso and MaryAnn Jones - you can gain instant benefits from upping your water intake. “It can give you a natural energy boost, take the edge off a headache and squash a craving,” says Durso.
That last bit - about craving-squashing - is key. That’s because a lot of times, what “reads” as hunger is actually thirst - especially in a state like Florida, which is known to be a little hot on occasion. If you’re active and outdoorsy, which is probably 99.9 percent of the FBP population, there’s an even higher likelihood that you’ll mistake hunger for thirst.
That’s why staying hydrated is soooooo important for staying slim, trim and firing on all bikini cylinders.
But not all drinkies are created equal, of course. “At the most basic, crowding out sugary beverages with water reduces calorie intake,” Jones adds. “Changing our snacking habits by prioritizing water before we grab a sabotaging choice can make us more mindful of what our body really needs.”
Down with sabotaging choices. Up with water and super-cute, solid stainless steel bangles stamped with inspo words.
