How Dehydration Affects Productivity?
We’re not always aware of the benefits of drinking enough water and how it impacts our health and work life. As a result, we often neglect to drink more water even if we know we haven’t always drunk enough during the day.
A report showed that up to 75 percent of Americans don’t drink the recommended 10 cups of water a day issued by the Institute of Medicine. This means most people are walking around mildly to severely dehydrated without even realizing.
When we get health issues such as severe tiredness, headaches, weight gain, high blood pressure or kidney complications, our first thought isn’t that we’re not drinking enough water. When it comes to our work, it can have wide-reaching implications – when we go home due to that incessant headache or we struggle with concentrating, our colleagues and departments indirectly suffer too.
A recent survey translated this to a $2.5 billion loss in productivity each year as a result of people taking time off work due to chronic illness – many of which could be put down to simple dehydration. A further study looking at forest workers found a significant reduction in productivity in those who were in a state of dehydration.https://healthyfoodmaster.com/dehydration-affects-productivity/https://i1.wp.com/healthyfoodmaster.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/How-Dehydration-Affects-Productivity.jpg?fit=900%2C717&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/healthyfoodmaster.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/How-Dehydration-Affects-Productivity.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1General HealthDehydration
