Find Your Routine: Hydrant x Plant People
We all know the power of a routine, and we’re certainly no strangers to routine or habit-building here at Hydrant. Our team and customers have found that creating one healthy “keystone” habit can serve as a great support system in building out your wellness routine. Building out your routine around this keystone habit can create a routine “flywheel” effect, helping you maintain those habits for longer.
Today, we’re excited to partner with Plant People, a brand making wellness accessible through practitioner-grade supplements and skincare derived from USDA-Organic, functional mushrooms, hemp, adaptogens, and vitamins. With your wellbeing at the forefront of everything they do, Plant People’s botanical formulas are designed to support foundational wellbeing in areas like stress, sleep, recovery, immunity, and focus.
Plant People's products combine centuries of plant and mushroom power with cutting edge technology, science and research. All of their products are doctor-formulated, non-GMO, cGMP and free of herbicides, pesticides, heavy metal and glyphosate. Sourcing only the best regenerative ingredients, they also plant a tree for every product sold.
With seasonal changes upon us, Plant People has launched four new capsule products that prioritize building immunity and cognition with mushrooms and herbs.*
Immune Power - For foundational, daily immune support to promote general health and vitality
Cold Control - For when you feel something ‘coming on’ or ‘want to kick it’
Sinus Support - For chronic or acute sinus pressure/headaches or sinus infections etc. (also great taken as a layer with Cold Control for head colds)
Lung Guard - For respiratory health and support great for if you live in a polluted city, and are exposed to toxins, smoke or frequently get coughs (their team also suggests taking this as a layer with Cold Control for extra support)
Clear Focus - For brain function, focus, mood and mental clarity with herbal nootropics, mushrooms, and adaptogens.
Like Plant People, we also value the importance of science-backed hydration to help you get more from your water, and when thinking about hydration, we love focusing on habit-building to keep our hydration levels topped off throughout the day. We’ve shared before that some of our team members have a special glass they leave out next to their Hydrant on the kitchen counter so it’s the first thing they see after getting up in the morning.
As we head into fall, we’re excited to add new products into our daily routine. You might have seen our new No Added Sugar option (in delicious Pink Grapefruit and Lemonade), perfect for those following a no-sugar diet (like keto or paleo) or those looking for an additional option to their day. Expect the same great taste, hypotonic osmolality, and balanced electrolyte boost as our other products, just with zero grams added sugar. We’ve even heard from some of our customers that they like to start their day with one of our other Hydrate or Energy flavors, and end their day with our No Added Sugar products, as they don’t like consuming the sugar before bed but still want to wake up feeling refreshed & hydrated.
Above all, both of us value the power of building out a consistent wellness routine. As you build out a routine, be to add in a workout in the morning, develop a consistent hydration schedule, or simply practice mindfulness, keep in mind some tips and tricks from our teams about habit-building:
Keep an Eye Out for Your Triggers – Sometimes, building out a wellness routine starts with eliminating or adjusting “bad” habits. Look out, recognize, and acknowledge what triggers the habit you’re trying to break. Is it stress? Is it a certain day of the week? Too many work meetings? While we might give into our cravings or old habits, the first step is always acknowledging what gets us there.
Replacing the Bad Habits with Good Ones – Flip the script and look for a creative solution or new habit you can replace your unwanted ones with.
Examine the Reward – If trying to build a new habit, it can help to visualize what you want the end result to be and the feeling associated with it. Some people like to list out all the positive rewards of this new habit, and use that as a motivator.
Anchor it to a Keystone Habit - As we mentioned before, sometimes anchoring a new habit onto one that’s already incorporated into your routine can help to seamlessly integrate it into your day-to-day.
Stay Steady and Patient – Be kind to yourself! This kind of work takes time, and it’s always good to make sure to follow new habits slowly and regularly, building it into a ritual that leaves you fulfilled and satisfied.
As you build out your routine, remember to take it slow and enjoy the process. Change doesn’t happen overnight, and habit-forming takes time. Remember to have fun with it! To help, try one of our recipes below to help enhance your wellness routine.
