The state of California is definitely living up to being the nation’s Golden State during the summer season, since summers here are among the nicest and driest anywhere. The return of the hot season, however, also brings the risk of being dehydrated, even at the office. Higher temperatures might also bring fatigue and loss of focus among employees, thus stocking up on bottled water from Sacramento water service companies can bring them back to focus, and more. How Much Water is Needed? Does everyone really need to drink at least eight glasses of water a day to stay healthy? Contrary to popular belief, eight glasses of water is nothing more than a guideline and not actually based on scientific evidence. This does not mean, however, that the body doesn’t need an adequate amount of water to remain hydrated. The best indicator that a person already needs to drink water is when he or she already feels thirsty.

Last June, 2014, Sacramento’s warm weather reached a blistering 107 degrees, breaking the previous record of 102 degrees back in 1982. This compelled the county to open cooling centers to help relieve people from the intense heat. Heat waves and resulting heat strokes can be hazardous to your health and even deadly during the summer season, with many falling victim to it. To prevent this, people are advised to stay cool and hydrated by drinking lots of clean cool water from Sacramento bottled water companies like Aqua Perfect. It is also important for you to know the signs of incoming heat stroke in order to not just save your own life, but the lives of others as well.

Have you ever experienced feeling hungry again, just an hour after your big meal? Studies show that 40% of the population can’t tell whether they are really hungry or thirsty. Signals of both hunger and thirst are sent by the same source in the brain–the hypothalamus–and this is why it is so easy to confuse the two. The Signs: Hunger: Signs of hunger could include feeling irritable, weak, and moody. It is also important to remember that hunger comes slowly, so if you suddenly find yourself feeling hungry for no apparent reason, then you most probably are just thirsty. Another telling sign of hunger is when your stomach grumbles, or has a hollow feeling.

California is currently going through its fourth consecutive year of drought, and the state’s worries about its water supplies continue to grow. Everyone is being called to do their part in conserving water, both residential and commercial entities alike. Until the situation is resolved and a more permanent solution is passed, Californians need to be judicious with their water usage or risk paying fines of up to $500. An article on the Santa Cruz Sentinel dated March 17, 2015 details the state’s ongoing struggle with the drought, and how the federal government has handled the situation. The article outlines the stipulations the government has issue earlier this year on water use, such as banning restaurants from serving water unless asked for as well as limiting individuals from watering their lawns and landscapes. Some critics, however, are pointing out that the restrictions will only resolve matters in the short run, and they urge the public to start preparing for an even longer d

All good companies value the hard work of their employees, and will do their best to ensure that their people remain in tip-top shape. Businesses often go out of their way to take care of their workers, especially those personnel whom they value greatly. This includes ways to help employees improve their wellbeing—and their production, in turn—such as providing memberships to fitness centers and holding exercise classes. The Democrat & Chronicle website has an article dated March 31, 2015 that urges businesses to involve their employees when planning for wellness programs. According to the report, by providing workers with a more active role in the creation of wellness programs, they will be motivated to make “meaningful improvements in [their] health”. Notably, the article states that businesses can and should encourage their employees to suggest healthier vending machine food options in addition to the regular selections, improving their eating habits at the same time.

With the issues that the drought has brought to California, people are taking action to keep things from getting out of hand. At a hearing in Sacramento, The Porterville Recorder reported that there were high hopes for overcoming the dry spell. Local residents, non-profit organizations, and city and county officials were invited to provide testimonies in the hearing that discussed first-hand experiences of water crisis. The event was organized due to the drought and the efforts that have already been put in place to help those affected. Led by the Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials Committee (ESTM), the participants discussed concrete long-term solutions and how these can be accomplished. Fortunately, a lot of sectors expressed their intent of being involved with rectifying the shortage.

Apart from the drought, California also has another threat to its water supply: toxic wastewater. The Sacramento Bee reported that the oil industry’s habit of dumping wastewater is a major contributor to this issue. According to some recently revealed investigations and documents, state regulators have allowed over 2,400 illegal injection wells for oil production or wastewater disposal into protected Aquifers of California. Some of these stores hold water clean enough for human consumption or crop irrigation. Several of those wells were shut down in the previous summer, but many oil companies are still dumping wastewater into supposedly protected underground resources, as admitted by state officials. This poses a significant risk to the water supply of California and to its citizens. Aside from this, there have also been reports of arsenic and nitrates found in the state’s waters.

It’s common knowledge is that drinking lots of water each day is essential to ensure a person’s optimal health. The amount of water that needs to be consumed varies for each person—determined by factors such as general physical health, lifestyle, daily activities, and environmental conditions. Whatever the amount, water is a necessity and, thankfully, local companies that provide Sacramento bottled water service, have made the habit of drinking healthy bottled water (as opposed to tap water) easy for local offices. Bottled water offers a substantial shelf life so local offices can keep plenty of inventory on hand.

There are many reasons to consider Sacramento vending machines for your office. When you look at the long-term benefits of having them in your workplace, you’ll discover how pivotal a role they can play in restoring the productive levels among workers who will have easy access to snacks through a vending machine, instead of having to go out or travel to get something to eat.

The FDA says that “Bottled water is water that is intended for human consumption and that is sealed in bottles or other containers with no added ingredients except that it may optionally contain safe and suitable antimicrobial agents. Fluoride may be optionally added within the limitations established.” If your company is in need of water supply, look for providers with water delivery in Sacramento, such as AquaPefect that offer high-grade water, local billing in Sacramento and even allows a trial period for coolers and water bottles.
