Peeling Back the Curtain on Productivity Studies
It’s been repeated time and time that drinking water is crucial to overall health. It’s a constant that doesn’t change in a world of shifting dietary guidelines and fad diets, but aside from essential physical health, water also plays a crucial role in mental sharpness and workplace productivity. And with all the time we spend at work, drinking water at work is absolutely necessary.
As a study featured on Authority Nutrition explains, “a fluid loss of 1.59% was detrimental to working memory and increased feelings of anxiety and fatigue.” You read that right; a loss of 1.59% has profound effects on your employees’ overall concentration and emotional well-being.
We shouldn’t even need to delve into the numerous studies that link happiness to hard work, but it should come as no surprise that water has a hand in that too.
Keep Your Employees Sharp, Happy, and Hydrated
How does this affect you as a Colorado business owner? Well, it’s easy to forget to drink water. It’s quite possibly one of the most important and most neglected habits. After all, there are dozens of water reminder apps available to help keep negligent people on track. But how do you keep workplace productivity alive and your employees hydrated without personally handing them an 8-ounce glass of water every few hours? Well, the best way is to keep water nearby.
Customized space-saving bottled water coolers can be placed anywhere in your office, no break room required. Keeping a constant supply of refreshing water at hand for your employees is not only convenient for them, but it also keeps water in their sight.
The old saying “out of sight, out of mind” goes both ways. If you want your employees to remember to hydrate and workplace productivity continually active, then keep water in their sight.
According to the Huffington Post, even mild dehydration can lead to fatigue and mood swings. Remember the part above about happiness and hard work? Well, this does not sound like a good recipe for that. Speaking of happiness, who doesn’t love a good quality cup of coffee?
For the love of Coffee…
Science loves coffee. It’s a staple of the American diet and is the fuel for the nation’s growing workforce. Even non-coffee drinkers say they enjoy the smell of freshly ground beans, and some studies show that just the smell of coffee alone can have positive, stimulating effects. There’s no end in sight to the piles of scientific studies done into the many health benefits of coffee. From the high concentration of antioxidants to the many pluses of the caffeine kick, coffee is easy to love.
So, when guests and workers alike come into a business, it’s a nice gesture to have excellent quality coffee to offer to them. As many studies show, coffee helps boost creativity, alertness, and focus, which translates to happy guests and productive workers.
Not enough evidence for you? Just do a brief Google search into the correlations between hydration, coffee, happiness, and workplace productivity, and you’ll find a mountain of evidence indicating that getting a water cooler and office refreshment delivery is the best thing you can do for your business.
I can do it myself!
You may wonder: why not just maintain that water filter yourself? Well, you certainly can drive to the store, fill up the jug, lug it back to the office and hook up the machine yourself, but the goal here is to be productive. Avoid wasting valuable time on machine maintenance yourself and contact a local Colorado water delivery provider to take care of the work instead. Not only will you save money and effort, but your employees will thank you for providing them with the best quality refreshments.
