[SPONSORED] Living Healthier and Naturally Through a Water Cooler

If you follow us at all, you know we cover a fair amount of over-the-top delicious food. Many of it may be processed, fatty, sweet and indulgent. In reality, if we ate everything we posted about, or didn’t supplement our negative eating habits with positive ones every so often, we’d be asking for health problems. As delicious as that double cheeseburger is, I’ve been trying to find personal ways to eat and feel better.

Our latest initiative is getting a water cooler into the office to ease up on the amount of caloric drinks we intake on the daily. The fresh water allows us to stay hydrated naturally, and saves us a ton of money in the process. Not only do we more easily get to our desired number of glasses of H2O every day, but we don’t have to head out to the liquor store every time our throat gets dry.

For myself, I’m also a big coffee drinker, so keeping my favorite grinds on deck, my favorite mug clean and the hot water faucet on the new cooler busy, I’ve also managed to keep my monthly coffee bill down to a respectable amount. Considering this is a sponsored post by the folks at Coffee Mate, I figured the segway between my excessive coffee drinking and going natural would go hand-in-hand. And I don’t often drink my coffee black, so I’m going to need something natural to flavor it with (can you say Coffee-mate Natural Bliss ?).

Yes, I still like my occasional soda, but trading out a couple sodas each week for several glasses of water has really made me feel like a champ. How have you gone natural recently?

Now you can enhance the coffee flavor you love with Coffee-mate Natural Bliss,
a new all-natural dairy creamer made with only milk, cream, a touch of sugar
and pure natural flavor. Flavors like sweet cream, vanilla and caramel add just
the right touch of sweetness and delicious flavor for your perfect cup every time.
