Today I'm giving a big thumbs-up to Dick's 20 oz. Misting Water Bottle.

So, you may recall my mentioning that I'm anhidrotic, which means I don't produce enough sweat. As you can imagine, this makes it very difficult to engage in any extended physical activities!

When I was a little kid running around as little kids do, I'd frequently get overheated, swoon, and have to be revived with Gatorade, heh. As an adult, I basically just swell up like a big red tomato, get nauseous, and eventually faint, if I push myself too hard. Not good.

I recently purchased the above misting water bottle on an impulse, and oh how I love it! You just push down on the handle and a fine mist of water sprays up out of the little nozzle.

It's not nearly as good as, you know, actually sweating, but it helps immensely. (For people who don't need the help, I imagine it would just be a refreshing added feature.) I was able to do 20 minutes on the treadmill without feeling nearly as woozy as usual. Huzzah!

Anyway! Give us your thumbs-up or thumbs-down in comments!

[Just to be abundantly clear, I am not affiliated in any way with Dick's, nor am I receiving any form of payment from them. It's just a product I've personally found super useful and am happy to recommend.]
