I am proud to say that I will be a part of the “Projekt: Wasserwoche” 2018 by Gerolsteiner. I’ve seen the challenge on social media these past years, and this year, I am happy to be part of it, too.
What is ‘Projekt: Wasserwoche (engl. Project: Water Week)?
The idea behing it is to only drink mineral water for a week, from May 14th to 20th 2018. We will all try to drink at least 2 Liters, preferably more, of water. Mineral water includes both still and sparkling water that comes from a spring and naturally contains minerals.
So what should I not drink?
Sodas, sugary and frizzy drinks, coffee, black tea and alcohol.
So I really only drink mineral water…?
Almost. Herbal teas, fruit teas and smoothies are also allowed. And of course you should eat! This is not a diet or a fasting cure. It would, however, be helpful to eat as healthy as possible during this week. If you pick a few of my recipes, then this would certainly make you feel even better.
Ok, but what’s the point of this week?
To have fun! And to see, how your body reacts to the changes. Leaving out coffee will certainly be a challenge for many of us. In my opinion, this week is supposed to help you get rid of things that might make you feel not so good, and instead focus on the things that make you feel amazing: drinking plenty of water, eating healthy and nourishing dishes, moving mindfully and taking time for yourself.

I drink only water 52 weeks a year…
Great! Me, too! But I still drink coffee and sometimes even a glas of wine on the weekends. That’s not bad per se, but I think it will be fun to see if I can eliminate coffee out of my diet for seven days. And then there are also many people that still drink plenty of sodas and sugared drinks on a daily basis without knowing about the effects it has on their bodies. That’s why I hope that projects like this will raise awareness of the importance of drinking plenty of water.
Where do I find motivation?
Here! And Gerolsteiner has, of course, come up with great content like healthy recipes, relaxation practices and lots of other fun ideas on their website. They even have an app called “Gerolsteiner Projekt: Wasserwoche“, which you can download for free in your App-Store. If you use the #projektwasserwoche on Social Media such as Instagram and Facebook, you will also find lots of motivational other posts.
So, are you in?

Yes, I’m in! 🙂 But I won’t be drinking water from single use plastic bottles. 🙁
Yay! And just so you know, Gerolsteiner has glas and PET bottles, both of which are always recycled. 🙂
