Five Top Tips for keeping hydrated at work

Wellbeing Group News and PR from Wellbeing Group - Published 02 September 2016 Wellbeing Group have put together some top tips for keeping hydrated at work.
Drink before you are thirsty

It is important to drink fluids before you are thirsty. Your body uses thirst to indicate that you are approaching dehydration. It is healthier to continuously replenish fluids.

Choose Water instead of sugary beverages

While a sugary beverage can help quench your thirst, it also carries excess calories that can be detrimental to your health. Since you have to hydrate your body with fluids more frequently under hot weather conditions, you'll be taking in more calories than you usually do if you look towards sugary beverages for hydration.

Keep a water bottle with you

Invest in a reusable water bottle and always keep it handy, you can replenish the water bottles contents anytime you are near a sink, water dispenser or fountain.

Use natural flavourings in your water

Sometimes people have trouble drinking enough water to stay hydrated because they prefer something with flavour, simply adding a slice of fruit such as lemon or strawberry is a great to add some flavour with out the calories of drinking fizzy drinks.

Drink Sparkling Water

If the carbonation from fizzy pop is what makes it so appealing, you can get the same fizzy feeling from drinking sparkling water. It has all the bubbles and fizz of sugary soft drinks minus the calories.
