Drinking at work…


Have you ever noticed how good water is? I mean, its taste aside, water can benefit you all day!

I once read an article that offered the tip that when you feel tired at work, trying drinking a glass of water and you’ll perk up in a bit, like a plant. That’s a great tip!

The question you need to ask yourself is, are you drinking enough during the day? I used to not drink that much water. I’d stick to Coke and juices. Water really wasn’t my “go to” beverage. After coming to college I started drinking water like a madman. I replaced my entire soda intake and some of the juice I drank with water AND IT FELT GREAT! I am able to get a whole lot more done during the day! The other benefits are that I feel better, and I’m healthier for it! My teeth don’t get massive amounts of sugars poured on them when I’m drinking water!

What about business?  When I started my internship over the summer I was amazed at how few people seemed to primarily drink water. What they want to drink is totally up to them, I was just interested to see that few people really liked to drink only water. I was curious.  I began to think, “I wonder if the more people drank water (in place of other beverages) at work, would the office seem to become more vibrant?”

Imagine an internal corporate campaign for you to drink water! The thought is interesting, but it has some validity to it. Imagine the cost of medical coverage a company may be able to reduce due to less dental and medical problems that can be avoided by drinking enough water! Let alone the increase in productivity since people will be more hydrated!

If you don’t drink much water right now, give it a shot. Try drinking more water and living by the rule that every time you wonder if you should drink some water, drink some water.

    This was Extremely interesting when I read the title I was skeptical but after reading it I thought it was amazing. It was really well done. I will start drinking water more, very informative.

    I love drinking water and have thought the same thing myself. The lack of caffeine is the problem. This would be an interesting study.
