3 Benefits Of A Water Cooler

 

Water is essential and having a water cooler is a basic must have accessory in any workplace, gymnasium, school and more. Water also comes from the foods that you eat but that accounts for only about 20% of the water you need to perform optimally. Having a water cooler in place, and therefore tasty, fresh drinking water available at all times, makes a real difference.

Here are just 4 benefits of having a water cooler:

  1. Reduces dehydration-related illnesses

Dehydration is a common problem in the UK. Most people don’t drink enough water and this causes health conditions such as high cholesterol, weight gain, skin disorders, constipation, asthma, tiredness and high blood pressure.

These problems can interfere with normal life and make you feel under the weather without you even realising what the cause is! Having a water cooler naturally encourages you to drink more throughout the day, making you feel healthier and keeping your body working optimally without much thought.

  1. Makes employees more productive

Fatigue, headaches and anxiety are common issues in the workplace. You may not know it, but dehydration triggers these conditions in most cases. As a result, this means that work performance can drastically suffer and productivity to plummet.

Having fresh, filtered water available at all times has been proven to increase performance and productivity – keeping topped up can also keep that mid afternoon slump at bay. Research shows that water can also improve brain function and boost your mood. It’s a win for everybody!

  1. Hot, Cold & Sparkling water available all day long

If you’re opting for a mains cooler, it isn’t just a simple cold or ambient water offering available! If you go for a Hydro Tap, you could have access to hot and sparkling water on tap all day long. Available simply at the push of a button! Making coffee breaks easier and water breaks more exciting.

 

Air Purifiers and What They Can Do for You

Air Purifiers are becoming increasingly popular over recent years, mainly due to their ability to remove harmful toxins in the air around you and create a safer environment both at work and at home. Investing in an air purifier is a sensible, health conscious decision but does involve a lot of consideration as there are so many on the market. Factors to be considered are whether there are particular toxins you’re looking to remove – HEPA filters for example, rid the air of bacteria & viruses due to their ability to remove particles as small as 0.1 microns. Other factors include the size of the room that you’re looking to clean as well as the financial consideration – although choosing the right company means that this factor can be removed altogether.

 

The most efficient air purifiers will have the ability to remove:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Odour
  • Smoke
  • Mould
  • Allergens (Including Pollen)
  • Dust
  • Pet Dander
  • VOCs (volatile organic compounds found in many household cleaning products, paint etc, that have the potential to be harmful to your health)

 

By using an air purifier, you can drastically reduce the risk of viruses being spread through the air; remove bacteria – as well as suppressing bacterial reproduction; eliminate pollen from the air meaning that Hay Fever sufferers can relax knowing their trigger has been removed; remove odours meaning that any unpleasant, unwanted smells won’t be lingering around. They create an air space that is more pleasant to be in, that feels clean to those that inhibit the room, whilst working silently in the background and not causing noise level disruption. Studies have actually shown that by using an air purifier you can reduce workplace absenteeism by up to 85% – as well as boosting productivity!

Whether you’re interested in full purchase, or would prefer to spread the cost with one of our budget friendly rental plans, we can tailor your investment to suit you.

The Benefits of Drinking Water & Staying Hydrated

Benefits of drinking water & staying hydrated

 

Keeping ourselves hydrated throughout the day is essential to maintaining our health and with over 60% of our body being made up of water, it is crucially needed in order to function optimally.

Guidelines unofficially recommend that we aim to drink 8 glasses of water a day, so here are our top 3 reasons for you to keep drinking:

 

  1. Help prevents headaches & migraines

Dehydration is a known trigger of migraines and has been proven in studies to be the cause of headaches in up to 40% of cases. Keeping on top of your hydration goals can help you keep debilitating headaches at bay and leave you to get on with your day.

 

  1. Helps optimise your physical performance.

Not keeping on top of your water levels can mean that when you start your exercise, not only will your core temperature rise faster but your heart will have to work harder to keep up. Making sure you’re drinking plenty of water will not only help you to perform the best you can but will make sure you feel great long after your workout has finished.

 

  1. Helps with weight loss

Making sure you drink plenty of water can be a key factor in aiding weight loss. Not only does it increase satiety but it has been proven to boost your metabolic rate. Studies have also shown that drinking a glass of water up to 30 minutes before eating a meal can lead to you eating less during your meal.

  • Your body needs water or other fluids to work properly and to avoid dehydration.
  • Water makes up about two-thirds of the weight of a healthy body.
  • Most of the chemical reactions that happen in our cells need water in order to take place. We also need water so that our blood can carry nutrients around the body and get rid of waste.
  • However, we lose water all the time, through evaporation when we breathe, sweat and in our urine. If the temperature rises or we do more activity, this increases the amount of water we lose.
