7 USEFUL (2)

7 Useful Tools For Monitoring Hydration – We’ve taken a look through the internet and have found some excellent tools to help you monitor your hydration levels throughout the day. Each one is designed to help keep you healthy, happy and productive.

Our mobile devices are less and less being used as phones, they have turned into our PA’s our child minders and even our fitness trainers. With so many apps out there we’ve picked a few to help maintain your hydration levels, some functional and some fun!

Water Logged Hydration App

Waterlogged hydration App

  • Waterlogged

Hey, you’re not drinking enough water. Waterlogged can help you with its charts and reminders. Every 6 seconds, someone around the world is using the Waterlogged application to track & improve their daily water intake. This APP works with Fitbit & by using photos of your favourite containers you can spend less than 60 seconds a day tracking your water intake.

Daily Water Free Application

Daily Water Free Application

  • Daily Water Free

So, as we know water plays a very important role in our body, it transports nutrients and oxygen into cells, regulates body temperature, helps with metabolism and so on, drinking enough water can help us lose weight, look younger with healthier skin, less likely to get sick, helps in digestion and constipation, relieves fatigue, have a good mood and so on…

This more functional app is simple and easy to use and like many of the others allows you to set your daily intake goal and track it. Each time you grab a glass of water you simply touch the screen to log the intake.

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/daily-water-free-water-reminder/id466387763?mt=8

Had enough of App based tools, we found this ground breaking idea from Halo Wearables, take a look online and judge for yourself.

Halo has developed the first ever real-time and non-invasive hydration monitoring technology. Their proprietary solution uses a combination of sensors to track an individual’s hydration at the cellular level. Electrical and optical sensors monitor fluid content and movement in and between both the intravascular and interstitial fluid compartments in the body.

It tells you how and when to optimise your water intake and keep fit.

  • The future is around the corner

Sandia National Laboratories researcher Ronen Polsky and colleagues are patenting a prototype model that can analyze various electrolyte levels on the spot, yet fit in a palm or be worn on a wrist. The device, when commercially available, could decrease the time ordinary citizens, athletes and the military must spend in emergency rooms, lab testing facilities or doctors’ offices.

“This is the future of personalized health care,” said Polsky. “These wearable technologies are just starting to come out in different forms. It’s inevitable that people will go there.”

The device is painless because it employs microneedles so tiny they don’t traumatize nerves when pressed into the skin. It also samples only interstitial fluid — the liquid between skin cells. Thus the device has the potential for long-term, noninvasive use.

This could be the future of hydration monitoring!

  • Back to basics…

Then let’s go back to basics. I know it’s grim, but one of the simplest wasy to monitor your hydration is through toilet trip frequency and the colour of your urine. Healthy and hydrated bodies produce urine that is a light yellow in colour. It also make sense that the more you intake, the more visits to the loo you can expect –  on average 5-8 times per day.

DEHYDRATION-AD

Do you often feel tired or fatigued? Is this affecting your productivity and motivation whilst at work? Well maybe you are not drinking enough water!

A recent study conducted by The National Hydration Council reveals that dehydration is thought to be the cause of one in ten visits to the GP in the UK for tiredness and fatigue. This diagnosis came as a shock to some patients with more than a third of them notably feeling better after drinking more water.

 

More findings reveal that:

  • One fifth of GP visits are down to tiredness and fatigue

  • Dehydration is thought to be the cause of one in ten consultations for tiredness and fatigue 

  • Half of GPs in the UK would prefer to have more time to look at people’s hydration habits

  • GPs advise people follow the NHS recommendations on daily fluid intake

Whatever the workplace, is it crucial that employees stay hydrated in order to remain motivated and focused. Some workforces need water more than others, however, and 2014 saw a 2% increase in the UK water cooler industry. Market analysts at Zenith International revealed that this increase is most likely due to the increase in bottled water consumption at construction sites. So, how many litres of water are construction sites going through in a week? Find out below!

How to Create the Ultimate Office Den

Posted in Bottled Water, Bottled Water Coolers, Coffee, Office Motivation on by .

Gone are the days of sad cubicles, bright fluorescent light rails and undecorated white walls, where office spaces were designed to provide as little distraction as possible. Today, corporate giants like Google, Red Bull and General Motors are proving that unconventional workspaces actually simulate creativity and innovation, resulting in happy, devoted and hardworking employees. This way of thinking also applies to the areas of the office where employees head for a well-deserved break – with employers realising that offbeat breakout areas are the secret to sky-high productivity.

If your office is in need of a motivation max out, we’ve compiled some of the most effective office den designs out there.

Relaxation: the office breakroom

Most offices will already have a break room. No matter what your business, breaks offer your employees a chance to relax and recharge. Traditionally, the break room will feature the office fridge, a notice board, a big lunch table and a small kitchen – and, more often than not, the all-important coffee machine. In most offices, coffee is the lifeblood of an energised workforce. In fact, studies have shown that productivity plummets when the coffee runs out – so don’t skimp on the office coffee machines, whatever you do.

Peace and quiet: a room for distraction-free hard work

With flexi-time working and interchangeable workstations becoming increasingly common in today’s offices, more and more employees are seizing the chance to work the way they want. This creative approach to office layouts makes it easier to find a space free of distractions and primed for productivity. Creating a ‘quiet room’ designed for minimal distractions gives your team the opportunity to isolate themselves in the name of ultimate efficiency.

Office meetings: the conference room

The office conference room has been an office staple for years and provides a space designed with strategy in mind. As the conference room will be frequently visited by guests from outside the office, you’ll want it to reflect your company. Meetings can often run a lot longer than anticipated – so comfortable chairs are a big plus here, and putting a water cooler in your conference room will offer constant H2O access to keep hydration levels where they should be. So stock up on a water cooler for increased productivity during meetings. There are so many ways to optimise your office for peak performance – and it’s often the finer details that make the biggest difference. Introducing office art injects personality into the office and helps to inspire creativity in your employees, while plants bring life to an office environment and purify the air in the process. The options are practically limitless, so it’s all about choosing the layout that works for your business.   If you’re ready to turn your office into a certified hydration station, you’ve come to the right place. At Eden Springs, our eco-friendly office coffee machines and water coolers help your employees to stay happy and hydrated all day long – take a look at the full range now to optimise your office.

Are you drinking enough water?

Posted in Bottled Water, Bottled Water Coolers, Office Motivation, water coolers, Well Being at Work on by .

Last week saw the return of the annual UK Bottled Water Conference hosted by Zenith International. Some of the findings revealed by Kantar Worldpanel were quite staggering. For example 60% of the UK population only drinks one glass of water a day or less, with 1 in 250 people failing to meet their total daily fluids needs. It is important that you stay hydrated, especially at work, as drinking water can help to improve alertness and productivity. Use the Eden Springs water calculator below to see just how much water per day you need to be drinking to keep your mind and body hydrated.
