We are MOBOT Nation, and we created a water bottle that’s changing the world. This is more than just hydration, this is a tool for body mindfulness that gives back - mind + body + planet.
Meet Lani Cooper, creator of MOBOT.
What led you to create the MOBOT?
I wanted to feel good, and I just didn’t. I am passionate about helping people and the planet. I believe feeling good is a fundamental right. As a very curious person I set out to discover what that would take and it turned into an adventure filled with many detours, speed humps and wrong turns… but here I am, and I feel good!
I’m now at a place where I feel good, often, and don’t confuse it with the idea of perfect health and beauty. I’ve found ‘feeling good’ means finding ways to be at peace with who I am and recognizing when I’m out of balance. I listen to my body, rather than running from it, literally!
Everyone should really grasp this statement – self-care is not an indulgence, it is essential! My passion is to share the learning from my recovery journey to help people be proactive about body mindfulness, so they’re not waiting for a recovery ‘ah-ha’ moment. If you learn to be in touch with yourself now, when you’re out of balance (which does happen), it’s easier to bring yourself back to a state of peace.
From my background as a sports therapist, yoga teacher, raw-vegan chef, flight attendant, comedian, and entrepreneur - I saw a common thread between my athlete’s recovery programs and what every person needs: hydration and massage. These are two of the most necessary practices, and they are often the most neglected (by everyBODY). So voila! MOBOT was born, and I knew everyBODY and the planet could benefit.
How will MOBOT help people?
My innovation to combine a 100% recycled stainless-steel water bottle with an eco-friendly foam roller was to (re)meet basic human needs: hydration and connection. I was motivated to help people to drink more water, stay in shape, and reduce plastic pollution. I created the MOBOT to be impressive in both form and function.
I wanted to inspire people to approach life and their bodies with curiosity, so then things can start to shift. To feel more at home in their mind and body, recover better and enjoy a healthier, more productive life.
