Travel Health and Fitness - Do you drink more (water) when on the road?
Mar 16, 11, 1:38 pm
Again, when I woke up 3 hours early, this thought crossed my mind.
Do you drink more water when you're on the road or at home/office? I suppose drink more in general could also apply ;) :D, but I was thinking of water when I was thinking about it.
I generally drink more during the day when working out of my home office because I keep water in the fridge & bring it up. Unless there are days like today where I get caught up on things & forget to get some more.
When in transit when traveling, I rarely drink water - unless it's a long distance domestic or int'l flight.
On the road I don't normally do bottled water, but found I drink quite a few glasses of water with meals if I'm at a restaurant. There have been times when I've wanted to say, just bring a pitcher & save yourself the walking.
But I don't know if that matches up to what I have when not on the road. Having said that, I've just realized I have been lax on water drinking lately in general, so need to get back on track.

Hands down I drink more water at home. I'd guess at least double if not more.
Not sure why other than my fridge/water bottle and ice are very handy at home.

Definitely! I'm a cheapo at heart. Water bottles come with most hotel rooms these days. So I consume the "free" water rather than purchase a Diet Coke at the panty, vending machine, or Walmart.

I wasn't really referring to water vs sodas/wine, etc, but water consumption overall.
When I'm in the home office I tend to drink more water than when I'm on the road - I think. When I do it regularly probably.
When I fly longhaul I drink water; short haul not usually. When I'm on the road & eating out I drink a lot of water w/ dinner, but who knows how much the little glasses add up to.
I'd say on the other stuff (wine), I'm probably equal - unless I'm w/ FTers & then the wine definitely outweighs the water ;) :p :D

I'd say I drink more water on the road than at home. At home I tend to drink unsweetened iced tea all day long (lots of it). On the road, it's not always easy to find, so when I can't find it I drink water instead. I tend to drink quite a bit throughout the day, so definitely much more water on the road than at home.

Definitely at home/work. Have my water bottles, easy to fill up. On the road that kind of quantity is expensive plus going to the restroom all the time is annoying outside my usual environment.

I tend to drink more at home since it is there (in my house - filter system and bottle system, at work - delivery service).
On the road, I try very hard but sometimes its tough - before the liquids ban, I always carried bottles with me.
I'm trying to get better about picking up a pack or flat of water when I know I'm going to be in the same car for several days (and preferably when I'm traveling with a colleague) - then I just keep water in the car and try to drink as much as possible (and take in a couple bottles to drink in the evening).

On the road. I tend to get a lot of ice when I'm in a hotel room and will foll up a cup with every half hour or so. Easier than going to the kitchen at home or no ice available at work. :)

I drink much more when at home, except for when I'm on plane, where I drink a ton of water. Definitely helps me with jet lag.

Yes, I always drinkable the water while we are on the roads from PHX-SAN-PHX for 6 hours in the cars. It was very good road trip. I have with my bottled water in the cars. I can see beautiful mountains & deserts out there. It was too extremely hottest out there. When the weather is cool down when we are in San Diego. I have to do stretch the legs when we are in the hotels room.
