Hydration is something we rarely think of, however, it is one of the most important aspects of a healthy body – and a healthy work life.
How Does Hydration Play a Role In the Work Environment?
When employees become dehydrated at work, not only do they suffer physically, they can also suffer mentally. Dehydration at work can affect mental function, and studies suggested that men and women that were dehydrated felt more sluggish and tired, and required more effort to concentrate and perform daily basic tasks.
Symptoms of Dehydration
It’s very easy to become dehydrated, especially when working a job that requires heavy labor or subjects employees to warm environments or air conditioning. However, realizing that you actually are can be challenging. Symptoms of dehydration include:
• Excessive thirst
• Dry mouth
• Dark colored urine
Tips to Keep Hydrated at Work
Making sure that you have easy access to fluids in your working environment is the first step to preventing dehydration. Vending machines offer a wide array of drinks including ice-cold water and sports drinks that can help replenish electrolyte balances.
Although the general recommendation of water intake each day is around 6-8 glasses, what we actually need varies for everyone. Pregnant women, laborers and people exposed to increased temperatures may need more.
Remember to sip liquids throughout the day while working and increase your fluid intake if you feel thirsty. When you’re adequately hydrated, not only will you function better at work (regardless of what your job is), you’ll also feel better and have the ability to be more productive.
