Understand how damaging the combo dehydration and productivity is to start working on it for your health and efficiency.

When you hear about the combo dehydration and productivity, they’re frequently related to workplace injury.

The subject is also discussed more in the summer or when a heat wave is about to hit.

Yet, you don’t need water only when the weather is hot.

With 70% of your body being water, it’s only logical to think to need it not only to be efficient but to function.

In the recent years, different studies came out about the right amount of water one really needs.

I have an entire blog about with different approaches here.

To me, drinking a minimum amount of liquids per day has helped me:

  • Keep headaches and migraines in check.
  • Improve digestion.
  • Perform better overall.

If you aren’t sure about the best approach to follow, give different ones a try. Should you feel unwell, stop immediately and don’t hesitate to contact your healthcare provider for orientation.

Dehydration and productivity

My mission here isn’t just to talk about hydration, but the relationship between dehydration and productivity.

You didn’t see that coming, did you?

Did you have any of those? I know I did!

Many times, I grabbed my glass or stood up to go the kitchen, but was derailed by:

  • A phone call.
  • An inquiry.
  • A last-minute meeting.
  • Someone at my desk.

And that’s just to name a few.

Sometimes, an entire day passed before I realized my glass was still empty and I was still thirsty.

Does it sound familiar?

The results of repeatedly doing it were:

  • Impairing migraines.
  • Lack of focus.
  • Dizziness.

Even though in my mind I was the most productive person ever by “prioritizing” my work above “the rest,” I was doing the opposite.

The 5 to 10 minutes I was “saving” myself for not going to get some water were, in fact, killing my productivity.

I was missing the opportunity of:

Productivity benefits of hydration

Note that when I talk about hydration, I mean mainly plain water.

All those cups of coffee aren’t exactly your best efficiency ally in most cases.

There are some energy drinks that promise alertness and energy, but they’re caffeine bombs.

You also want to watch out for them.

Water, on the other hand, expands the brain’s grey matter. And according to a study by the University of East London, it also increases productivity by 14% at work and home.
