Everyone who works has one goal: to do their best at work, to perform at their best. The only way to do that is to look after your health, and that includes staying hydrated.
Office workers, sedentary workers, need to pay particular attention to hydration, because mental work can only be done effectively if the brain is functioning properly, and when dehydrated we are unable to concentrate properly.
Why is water so important for our body? A large percentage of our body is water, which plays an important role in ensuring bodily functions. Water also helps toxins to leave the body smoothly. Waste products are eliminated through sweat and urine.
Water plays a very important role in the proper functioning of the body. One is that it regulates body temperature, plays an important role in digestion and prevents constipation. But it also plays an important role in keeping the skin healthy. If you don’t drink enough, you can develop skin conditions such as dry skin and itching.
Regular water consumption ensures normal brain function, improves metabolism and helps maintain a healthy weight. Many people forget to drink when they are at work, even though water plays a vital role in keeping us healthy. We should drink 8-10 glasses of water a day to keep our bodily functions functioning properly. It’s not easy to drink that much water, especially in the cold months, when we often don’t want to drink at all. Many people snack or eat when they are not really looking for food, but just a glass of water.
It’s also worth cutting down on coffee, as coffee and other caffeinated drinks drain water from the body. Dehydration can cause muscles to cramp up, most commonly your legs cramp up if you don’t drink enough. Alcohol also takes water away from the body, so it is essential that if you do drink alcohol, you make up for the fluid loss by drinking a glass of water.
