Hydrate Your Way to Health

Hydrate Your Way to Health

The title isn’t just catchy, it’s the literal truth.

More than 90% of Britons experience health issues. What’s worth noting is that many of these health issues can be resolved by simply drinking water more as it may well be that dehydration is the cause.

If you are feeling unwell and are displaying the following symptoms, you may be dehydrated:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dry skin 
  • Feeling tired 
  • Irritability 
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Feeling faint/dizzy 
  • Headache

Often, these symptoms are a direct result of not drinking enough water. The good news here is that by simply increasing how much water you drink which will rehydrate you, your organs are able to function better and not expend further energy sending you signals that they need water.

Remember though, if you are drinking enough water and are hydrating properly – check the easy reference chart at the AquAid website – and you’re still feeling unwell, there may be another cause, so you may want to chat to your health professional.

Of course, as here at AquAid Water Coolers our focus is all about the supply of refreshing bottled-at-source water through our Bottled Water Dispensers and filtered water via our Mains Water Coolers, we’re well aware of the links between hydration and health.  Moreover, by offering a wide range of high quality water dispensers suited for installation in whatever size organisation you may have, we are also able to assist with the provision of safe water resources to thousands of communities who currently do not have access to clean drinking water.

Hydrate Health – Pinch Yourself!

Hydrate Health – Pinch Yourself!

You did read that right. One of the simplest ways to check how hydrated (or dehydrated for that matter) you are is to:

Pinch yourself. Your hydration level directly affects your skin’s ability to change shape and return to normal. Using your pointer finger and thumb, gently pinch the skin on the back of your hand and hold for a few seconds. If the skin takes a while to return to its normal position when you let go, you could be dehydrated. A gentle pinch, mind, the idea is not to hurt yourself.

Reverse the dehydration. Now that you’ve established that you are more dehydrated than you realised, counteraction is easy.

Drink water more. In the current circumstances, good health habits can easily fall by the wayside. Don’t allow this. Whether you work remotely, have returned to your office or formal workplace or are constantly on the go, make sure you always have access to drinking water and carry water with you.

Hydration boosts better function.  Increasing your water intake not only produces a healthier, plumped up skin but also your body and mind’s ability to function better overall.

Water refresh where?  That’s where AquAid come in. For over 22 years, we have been providing an extensive range of high quality water coolers to businesses, work sites and the educational sector across the UK. With more than 23 branches nationwide, we are well equipped to provide the best drinking water solution for your organisation, however large or small your staff contingent. Once installed, our range of water dispensers, from Bottle-Fed and Mains-Fed through to Hot Water Boilers and Instant Taps, each carry a donation to charity, providing safe water resources to millions of people in need in impoverished communities.

AquAid – Encouraging Access to Drinking Water in Schools

AquAid – Encouraging Access to Drinking Water in Schools

Recently, Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, spoke of his wish to have all London primary schools become ‘water only’ zones.

The reasoning behind this stems from a report that found that nearly 40 percent of children in London between ages 10 and 11 are obese. Mayor Khan said, “Making water freely available and introducing measures like ‘water-only’ in schools are some of the simple things we can do to not only tackle childhood obesity, but also improve behaviour and learning.”

AquAid has always promoted and encouraged proper hydration habits for every individual; however, a large portion of our focus has always been and continues to be ensuring the provision of large capacity water coolers, designed specifically for the school environment, to schools throughout the UK. Our water coolers can either be Mains-Fed for large schools where the water consumption is high or, Bottle-Fed for schools where there are no water mains close to a particular area.

This is because, at AquAid, we understand that remaining properly hydrated helps to improve attention, short-term memory, and well-being. The fact is, a hydrated child is a much happier child and to this end, we have always encouraged our school customers to be able to provide readily available drinking water for both the children and school faculties.

Further to that, our water coolers are all equipped with anti-bacterial taps to ensure safe drinking water, and various drainage options to reduce overflow and spillage wherever possible. Moreover, to help create and instil better hydration habits, we also offer free refillable drinking water bottles and free school posters to help keep water top of mind during the school day.

Should I Increase My Water Consumption During A Heatwave?

Should I Increase My Water Consumption During A Heatwave?

When the temperatures soar within a short time frame, it’s easy to forget something as simple as adjusting our water consumption to counteract what are most likely increased dehydration levels.

A thought that may help one adjust as the heat increases is to keep in mind that water not only makes up a significant percentage of every single bodily organ but each of our organs requires adequate water to function well.

Which is why, here at AquAid Water Coolers, we continue to encourage the implementation of good daily hydration habits, whatever the weather and wherever the location.

One of the simplest methods to ensure that you’re drinking enough water is to install a water cooler at your premises whether that’s in an office; building site; festival; concert hall; sporting or social event; hotel; medical facility; childcare facility; school; college or university.

If you would like to ensure that everyone in your organisation has easy access to refreshing drinking water, irrespective of the weather, contact us at AquAid.  We supply a wide range of high quality Bottled and Mains-Fed water coolers and we have, for over two decades helped our more than 33,000 customers keep hydrated through the delivery of bespoke water supply solutions , tailor-made to meet the requirements of any organisation, be they small, medium or large.
