We all know it’s important to stay hydrated and the best way to do that is by drinking water. Water is a vital part of how we stay alive.

However, do you know how much drinking water promotes efficiency in our personal and work life? It does so much more than keep us going. Keeping hydration levels up boost our concentration abilities and help our cognitive skills.

Regulating Body Temperature

Drinking water helps regulate body temperature, it’s essential for a number of reasons that your body temperature stays at a manageable temperature, especially in hot weather or plummeting temperatures as being too hot or too cold can interfere with mood, productivity and overall health.

Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Daily stress and anxiety has a huge impact on our mental health and productivity. According to  a study published by Baishideng Publishing Group Inc. on how drinking plain water is associated with decreased risk of depression and anxiety in adults, "Lower daily plain water intake was associated with increased risk of depression and anxiety in the crude model. Although controlling for potential confounders attenuated these associations, the inverse link for depression remained strongly significant, whilst anxiety risk tended to be higher for lower water intake in the final model".

Supports Creativity

One of the many benefits of drinking water is how it helps our creativity. While dehydrated, we are naturally preoccupied and more likely to fall into a bad mood. This will consume your thoughts, not leaving any time for creativity. If your creative juices seem to have fallen, drink some water! It’ll replenish your body and mind.

Energises Muscles

If you work a manual labour job or do a lot of physical movement, it’s important to ensure you stay hydrated as it will help energise the muscles and lubricate your joints so you aren’t putting your unnecessary strain on your body.

How Does Hydration Affect Sports Performance

Staying hydrated is an important part of sports productivity. When we sweat, it's the body’s way of maintaining the perfect body temperature. So drinking plenty of water will naturally replace the fluids lost while exercising. Because drinking water will also naturally improve flexibility and muscle recovery, it plays a huge part in athletes’ performance.

Clear Mind

A clear mind gives you the creative space you need to be your most productive self, and what’s clearer than water? Drinking plenty of water will reduce the risk of headaches. Headaches fog up our heads and distract us from our daily tasks. Keeping your water intake up will help you keep a clear head and promote productive quick-thinking.

Fights Fatigue During The Day

Water keeps us from experiencing fatigue during the day when productivity needs to be at full force to be able to complete tasks, whether that’s in or outside the office. Although many people turn to caffeine, many people don’t realise that it’s dehydrating so the energy you get from it isn’t worth it. Instead, opt for water and add flavouring or experiment with sparkling water.

If you're trying to promote better productivity at work why not take a look at our water dispensers which are perfect for the workplace. From cold, hot, and sparkling water coolers for any business.
