Facts and The Importance on having a water cooler in your workplace:
Glenpatrick Water Coolers explains the importance of having a water cooler in your office.
A water cooler in the office is one product we all should have.This month we look into the facts of dehydration and how it affects productivity in the work place.
FACT: Our brains are made up of 75% water and as such, we require a steady intake of water. It takes a loss of only 1% – 2% of your body’s ideal water content to cause dehydration.
How does dehydration affect us in the workplace?
“Dehydration is a condition that occurs when the loss of body fluids, mostly water, exceeds the amount that is taken in.”
The lack of water leads to a lack of awareness, problems with concentration, and poor short term memory. When the body and brain are refreshed and hydrated, we are able to function clearly and perform to the best of our ability.
Why is it important to drink water in the workplace?
On average we spend 60% of our day at work. For many people, the majority of these hours will be spent looking at a computer screen, and performing complex tasks. These activities require high levels of focus, attention and concentration.
Drinking water in the workplace is critical for productivity and mental alertness. Even slight dehydration can lead to workers suffering a loss of reasoning ability, visual perception resulting in a lull in performance.
Where do we come in?
FACT:We need 7-8 glass of water per day.
