With most of us working from home for more than a year, it goes without saying that your day-to-day basically revolves around eight to 10 hours sitting on your desk, looking at the monitor, typing away on spreadsheets and documents, editing files, and attending meetings via video calls. Yes, you may also start or end your day working out, but, admit it—you spend so much time staring at the screen that the only times you get up from your desk is when you need to eat or go to the bathroom. Something people tend to forget, especially during these trying times and you're deep into what you're doing with work, is to drink more water. And now more than ever, you need to drink more water.
It's not just the fact that most people are feeling the heat, especially when you're living in a tropical country with those high temperatures on the daily and you're feeling even more parched than ever. Water makes up 60% of bodies and 85% of people's brains. Something as little as a 2% drop in one's hydration level can cause immediate physical tiredness and loss of concentration. We've seen the productivity hacks—always have a tumbler by your desk—but, let's be honest: how often do you drink from it? Do you set reminders on your phone? Maybe it's not the way to go. If we have smartwatches that track our health, why not have a smart water bottle that is going to steer you towards having those required two liters of water every day?
