We continue our article on why your should your office have a water cooler this month with the last few points.

Discourage consumption of unhealthy beverages 

By providing access to fresh, clean water, you can discourage the drinking of unhealthy beverages in the workplace. Many employees turn to sugary or caffeinated drinks to give them energy; however, there are some big downsides. For example, whilst caffeine is known to provide a burst of energy, it also stimulates our “fight or flight” response. Too much of it can cause anxiety, nervousness, and panic attacks – all of which are detrimental to performance at work.  

Sugary fizzy drinks are packed with empty calories too. As well as having no nutritional value, these beverages can seriously impact health. Drinking them too often can raise the risk of heart attacks, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Comparatively, water is calorie-free and exactly what the body needs to function at its best. 

Mains-fed coolers remove impurities using modern filtration systems. This gives the purest, safest drinking water, with contaminants such as sediment, chlorine, and heavy metals all eliminated. It’s also worth considering that employees who drink water are less likely to snack during the workday. This is because people often eat more when they’re thirsty, leading to weight gain.  

Help staff stay hydrated throughout the day 

Employers who invest in office water coolers in Derby and Nottingham can help their staff to stay hydrated. Providing a constant supply of water will make it more likely that they will drink the recommended six to eight glasses of water a day. Health experts advise that the best way to maintain proper hydration is to drink small sips regularly. Having a water cooler close by can provide them with easy access to water and encourage them to drink a little and often.
