WHY PROPER HYDRATION CAN BOOST JOB SECURITY
The most productive employees in any organisation enjoy the highest job security under normal conditions, and more than ever the onus is now on individuals to be at their sharpest.
Employees in any working environment can boost their levels of concentration, combat fatigue and increase their overall productivity by drinking the right amount of quality water throughout the working day, to ensure they stay properly hydrated.
Crucially, drinking sufficient water boosts their immune system, flushing toxins, waste, and bacteria from the body to fight disease and infection, so they become sick less frequently and need less time off work.
Culligan Middle East makes water safe for drinking across the region and specialises in quality water solutions for the office, and we’re working to raise awareness of the individual and overall business benefits of proper hydration.
Water is the main component of the human body and allows all metabolic reactions, playing an indispensable role in the processes of thermoregulation and body hydration.
Its importance in preserving individual health and fitness is based not only the fact that the human body is made up of approximately 60% water, but also by the multiple vital functions it performs:
regulates body temperature
cleanses the body, thanks to the expulsion of solid and liquid waste substances
increases the tonicity and elasticity of muscle mass
promotes weight loss through the increase of metabolic functions that transform fats into carbon dioxide and water
reduces water retention by performing an anti-edematous action.
This is why it’s vitally important to regularly drink water throughout the day, not only when we feel the need, and Culligan offers the perfect solution with our plastic-free water coolers for the office, which provide cold, hot and now sparkling drinking water
Our Bio-Refresh range now includes an elegant and modern design touch-free version now available in Middle East, which dispenses water without any physical contact needed, ensuring proper hydration in complete safety.
Studies have shown that, for an adequate water balance, a water intake equal to 1ml for each kcal consumed is reasonable. So, assuming an individual normally burns about 2000 kcal per day, it follows that water intake should not be less than 2 litres, or 8 glasses per day. A quantity that should increase considerably with physical activity.
While water promotes well-being and concentration, it has been shown that dehydration of 1-2% can significantly affect brain function, with a reduction in cognitive performance. This is something that all business need to guard against.
