“Water boosts productivity”


A trial organised by a south west water company to test the benefits of drinking eight glasses of water a day has found that 80% of participants enjoyed higher productivity levels.

The project, which was organised by Wadebridge and Plymouth based H2O on the Go!, saw staff at Coodes Solicitors take the challenge.

Seven members from the firm’s St Austell office took part and kept a weekly log charting their progress.

Coodes’ partner, Ian Taylor, said: “It was quite difficult to consciously drink eight glasses of water a day, but the results show that those who did enjoyed a benefit.”

The results from the project, which aimed to test if drinking eight glasses of water per day does have a positive impact on business, found that 60% of participants felt ‘happier’ and ‘better’.

40% recorded that their sleep had improved, while 80% enjoyed a productivity score of four out of five after drinking eight glasses of water a day.
