Should I Drink less Water when the Weather Temperature is Cooler?

Should I Drink less Water when the Weather Temperature is Cooler?

It’s always encouraging when summer extends its warmth further into the year – increasing our urge to keep active, perhaps exercise more – all while boosting our sense of well-being.

As the weather turns cooler, so might the inclination to cut down on our water intake, when in fact year round, we need to keep an eye on maintaining healthy hydration habits.

Now with late summer progressing into autumn, it’s important not to cut down on our water intake, but rather make sure that we always have a bottle of water with us, wherever we go, much as we do in the warmer months.

Without realising it as we begin covering up, adding more layers of clothing – we’re still losing water, through even minimal exertion, exhalation and perspiration – it’s just not as noticeable.

Whether we’re commuting to the office, taking the children to school or even just walking around, the rules to keep properly hydrated shouldn’t change too much, regardless of the season.

The wonderful thing about cooler weather though, is hot water drinks become more appealing, as long as we remember to balance drinking each tea and coffee with drinking a glass of water.

From there, the simplest method to keeping yourself healthily hydrated is making sure you have a constant supply of drinking water wherever your location. Always have a bottle or a glass of water handy and make sure to refill your water bottle or water glass at regular intervals using your water dispenser, water cooler or hot water boiler.

Hot Water Dispenser, Water Boiler, Instant Taps … Cuppa Tea

Hot Water Dispenser, Water Boiler, Instant Taps … Cuppa Tea

It is astonishing to consider that wars have been fought over this hot drink.  That shipping vessels were redesigned to ensure faster transportation from country of harvest to the British consumer.

If you haven’t guessed it yet, we are referring to tea. Yes, these leaves, which produce the most aromatic, soothing, anti-oxidant rich brew, have held sway over billions of global consumers for centuries.

They say that a cuppa cures all ills and they’re not far wrong – whether you’re using your hot water boiler, combination AquAid chiller/boiler or Instant Taps at home, home office, office or any other workspace, there’s very little that can’t be cured by the brew.

But what is it about tea that makes it such a popular drink? Could it be because the ‘modern’ day office worker invented tea breaks?

According to The UK Tea and Infusions Association, tea breaks are a tradition beginning over two hundred years ago. Initially when workers commenced their day at around 5 or 6am, employers allowed a break in the morning when food and tea were served. Some employers repeated the break in the afternoon.

Between 1741 and 1820 industrialists, landowners and clerics tried to put a stop to the tea break maintaining that tea drinking and rest made working people slothful. Modern thinking could not be further away from this – regular tea breaks play a vital part towards creating a productive workplace – helping us maintain a positive attitude while simultaneously ensuring adequate levels of hydration.

The health benefits (which we many not even be aware of) could also be a factor. Aside from the strong anti-oxidant properties, drinking both black and green teas are believed to help with weight loss, act as a sunscreen and even reduce the risk of blood clot formation and atherosclerosis.  It’s worth noting that this applies to drinking your tea without milk or sugar.

The other positive is tea doesn’t go off. Take note though, if you leave your tea for a time, those little leaves will not be as fresh after six months. The flavour may not suffer, but the brew will lose its antioxidants – refer to tea’s health benefits above. The best way to preserve the efficacy of the antioxidants is by storing your tea in a sealed container in a dark, cool place.

The Unseen Advantages of the AquAid Hot Water Boiler

The Unseen Advantages of the AquAid Hot Water Boiler

The simplest route to keep warm when it’s cold is to drink hot water. Bold statement, can we back it up?

We can. Aside from all the usual solutions to keep ourselves warm – layered clothing, closed shoes, hats – drinking a hot drink (even if it’s gently heated water, say with a squeeze of lemon) can raise the body’s temperature almost immediately.

Drinking hot water provides other benefits too:

*Relieves nasal congestion. According to a 2008 study, drinking a hot drink, such as tea, provided quick, lasting relief from a runny nose, coughing, sore throat and tiredness. The hot drink was more effective than the same drink at room temperature.

*Helps reduce toxins. Drinking hot water temporarily raises your internal body temperature.  Your body’s endocrine system activates and you start to sweat. While sweating might be uncomfortable, it’s an essential part of getting rid of toxins and irritants we are exposed to in our environment. According to the Arthritis Foundation, drinking water is important for flushing toxins out of your body. It can help fight inflammation, keep the joints well lubricated and prevent gout.

*Can assist with weight loss. As your body compensates for the warm temperature of the water, it brings your internal temperature down and activates your metabolism. A small 2003 study reported that switching from cold water to hot water could help people lose weight through this thermic effect.

How do all of these benefits tie in with AquAid Hot Water Boilers? Very well, as it turns out.

When at work, waiting for the kettle to boil can be a lengthy process. Constantly boiling the kettle also uses more electricity, so getting your hot drink can be costly and counter-productive.

When you install an AquAid hot water boiler, an unlimited supply of filtered, boiling drinking water is kept at the perfect hot drink temperature throughout the working day, whether in the office, workspace or school. Furthermore, AquAid’s range of hot water boilers provide for a draw of piping hot water of anything from 12 mugs from the Eco WallFit Water Boiler at one draw, up to a 40 mug draw from the Eco Large Fill Water Boiler.

Speak to us at AquAid today so you too can benefit from the unseen advantages of installing a hot water boiler.

March is in (a) Hot Water (Boiler)

March is in (a) Hot Water (Boiler)

Now that March has arrived, it would be nice to believe that spring isn’t too far off (and it isn’t that far as the new season arrives officially on the 20th of March).

As we Britons are used to radical weather patterns whatever the season, it’s no surprise that the topic remains at the forefront of our communication. Whether (ha) we’re topping up our water at the water cooler station at work i.e. chatting to colleagues (not the water cooler, although should you wish to, please, feel free – even a water cooler can benefit from some attention) or chatting with family or friends or indeed, speaking to strangers.

Irrespective of our opinion about the topic of the weather, there is no denying it has a huge impact on our behavioural patterns; moods; what we eat; our travel patterns; what we wear and what we drink.

Although we may not think about how different our drinking water patterns are depending on our environment, they very much are. When it’s warmer we tend to exert ourselves more and are always on the lookout for the perfectly chilled water, while come the colder months there’s nothing better than a piping hot drink to stave off the chill. This usually means you are more likely to be on the lookout for a hot water boiler that can dispense a constant supply of hot water throughout the day.

If you’re prone to drink more water when it’s warm and less when it’s cold – a gentle reminder that you’re just as likely to become dehydrated in winter as you are in summer, so remember, whatever the weather, make sure to have AquAid address all your hot & cold water cooler requirements. We are always happy to help.
