How do you feel when you are dehydrated? Slow and sluggish, right?
Well, when you sleep your body becomes dehydrated.
After all, you just went 7-8 hours without drinking any water.

These high tech water bearers are also fantastic at providing hot and cold water at a craving’s notice for those times you’re hankering for a quick cup of coffee or hot tea!
