If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts — not the JAR brooch and the Louis XV chair but the hairspray and the electric toothbrush. We asked yoga instructor Adriene Mishler — the founder of Yoga With Adriene and a co-founder of the Find What Feels Good app — about the water bottle, eye pillow, and sneakers she can’t live without.
It sounds silly, but if you like your drinking vessel, you’re more likely to make it an extension of your body. This is my favorite water bottle. I used to be a Nalgene gal, but the thing about a big wide-mouthed bottle is that nine times out of ten, you’ll spill water on yourself. Which is no big deal — unless you’re about to perform or do an interview. I spilled a lot of water on myself drinking from a Nalgene while on tour in the past. This has a nice little spout for your mouth. The lid also has a handle, and I like that the water bottle is stainless steel and can better control the temperature of the liquid.
You can pull the hem on these up to make them more fashionable, or you can wear them longer to be a little bit more cozy. They’re quality joggers and made well. The women who run Apiece Apart are exquisite human beings. They do a good job of making pieces that are simple and comfortable, but also interesting and elegant.
I probably don’t go a day without wearing these. I’ve been really loving them for walks and runs. Yes, they look cool and are hip, but they feel good, too. I’ll wear them casually as well. It’s nice to have a shoe I can wear for everything.
When I was traveling on tours for work, I was on a mission to stop using disposable coffee cups. Things like the Keep Cup weren’t as popular back then. I don’t remember when I originally got this — it was a long time ago — but when I did, I was like, The search is over. It just checked all my boxes: It doesn’t leak, it’s light, and it’s stylish. I actually still use the first Keep Cup I bought. Maybe it’s unrealistic to say, “I’m never going to touch a single-use piece of plastic again.” But if you pick one thing like coffee, which is so ritualistic, making a small change like this can have a big impact.
