A quick tip to stay hydrated and fight postural stress at work

Created by Student Intern Jayson Yaplee

Many of us drink water throughout our workday because we understand the important role it plays in our health and wellness.  Staying hydrated helps with things such as proper brain, heart, and kidney function.  We also feel the effects of sitting at our computers for extended periods of time.  The aching and tightness that we feel is due to postural stress.  An easy way to fight postural stress is to take mini breaks from our computers and walk around.  Instead of using a travel mug or sports bottle, try using a smaller cup so you will need to get up and refill your glass more often.  It is a small change but the benefits can be great!
