Most people do not stop and get themselves a drink until they actually feel thirsty. Some even believe that if they do not feel like they need a gulp of water, there is no reason to have some. This could not be further from the truth. In fact, by the time you experience the sensation of thirst, your body is already dehydrated. The feeling of being thirsty is the body’s last-ditch effort to let you know that it is time to provide yourself with the critical substance known as H20. The majority of your physiological being, 60 percent, is comprised of water. The overwhelming majority of individuals spend their lives chronically dehydrated, which means that they are negatively impacting the function and capabilities of the body. Most systems do not function to capacity without being properly hydrated. So, what are some other reasons to drink more water at work?
No Water Means No Life
If you are not getting water, you will die—that is a fact. Okay, so maybe you will not dehydrate yourself to the point of death while you are at the office, but depriving the cells of your vital systems sets them on the path towards a shutdown. This is not the state that you want to be in while you are trying to complete your daily tasks.
Hydration Can Prevent Cancer
Some research has shown that keeping your body hydrated can reduce your risks for developing certain types of cancer. In a world where the word cancer strikes fear into the minds of most, hydration should become a top priority.
Improve Your Mood
Being dehydrated can cause you to be very irritable. It can also make you feel confused and delirious. Of course, this is no way to be while you are at the office, where you must keep a positive attitude in order to rise in the ranks. Drinking more water could help you to think clearer and have a real smile on your face.
Improve Your Performance
Dehydration is a major culprit behind chronic fatigue, dizziness and feeling weak. Muscle tissue is 75 percent water. If you have found that keeping the correct posture or standing at work for an extended period is difficult, dehydration could be your issue.
Keep a Healthy Weight
A lot of times when you feel like snacking, you actually just need a cool drink of water. Rather than reaching for those fattening office goodies, grab yourself a drink of H2O and see your weight decrease.
To function properly, your digestive system should be flushed out regularly. This requires the proper amounts of water. Drinking more water will help you to flush out waste and bacteria that has accumulated and improve your overall health.
Invest in Your Health
Another great way to stay healthy at work is to invest in standing.
