Water is life. Every day, I have to make sure there are three bottles of water in my apartment.


#1 One bottle for washing (550ml)

Though it rarely happens, but I know there will be one day morning I wake up or one day evening I return back to find there is no running water without notifications.

That's why I keep one bottle of water in the washing room every day. 550 ml is enough for cleaning my hands, brushing my teeth and washing my face.

So it didn't bother me at all this moring to go out as usual without water supply.


#2 One bottle for drinking (450ml)

I'm in a safe region where earthqukes and fires haven't happened for years. But wherever you see me, within a distance of an arm, you could see a bottle of fresh drinking water.

What's more, I put it besides my bed at first before going to bed. If there is nothing happens at night, I drink it for morning routine. 

Thankfully, until now, the water has helped me when I feel sick at night, but not trapped by earthquake or fire.


#3 One bottle for heating (1.5 L)

Even the hottest summer, I prepare one bottle of hot water (boiled within 24 hours) in my room.

Since it could comfort my illness if I feel uncomfortable in my body. And it really did for several unexpected sickness in the past.

If I'm okay, it would be used for feet bath, which is said to be a very healthy habit according to traditional Chinese medicine.

    @5plus6 - such a basic requirement that many of us take for granted. I have a hot water pot I keep filled and use throughout the day. Instant Hot Water -- like many Chinese. I use it for Coffee, Tea, and just plain warm beveraging.

      @brianball - except water, I also have three kinds of electricity backup. Even the most unmotivated days, I fresh the water in the bottle, check the battery amount for my backup lamp. And write down at least two words in my journal.
      Today is passed, but the preparation for the tomorrow should never be ignored.
