Our bodies rely on water to survive so it goes without saying that staying hydrated every day should be non-negotiable. The fact that eight glasses of water should be your daily dosage of H2O, has been around for years, but is it correct? Medical professionals say that it all depends on your physical activity and metabolic demands, which is influenced by your body size, body composition, and weather of conditions.
Lack of sufficient water intake will result in dehydration that affects your ability to function optimally. The inability to function affects productivity and efficiency in the workplace. Hydration has always been a vital contributor to productivity in the office. Therefore, the benefits of hydration should be advertised, as well as the risk dehydration presents. Dehydration is synonymous with nausea, fatigue, headaches, premature brain ageing and muscle cramps.
Hydration in the office isn’t as widely supported as it is in schools, gyms or public parks, even though it carries the same consequences. Dehydration in the workplace results in a dip in efficiency, productivity and energy levels. A lack of water intake results in a more sensitive employee, which could lead to conflict in the office. If you are concerned that you might be dehydrated, check out these signs: You’ve gone more than 5 hours without urinating; your urine colour is dark yellow, you are lethargic, you have no tears when crying.
Other signs may include:
• Hands and feet feel icy
• Lightheaded or wooziness
• Sleepy or crabby
• Sunken eyes
Hydrated enough? Stay that way by looking at a couple of ways that would ensure your hydration levels.
Here are some tips for staying hydrated:
1. Keep a water source close by, an office water cooler will do. Ice cold water will definitely soothe your thirst.
2. Add a little flavour to your H2O. A slice of lemon or any fruit will add a zing to a usually plan drink.
3. Water doesn’t have to be the only type of hydration, a cup of coffee can be used to keep those dehydration levels down, try some of our pods.
