Hydrate Yourself Challenge
19 February 2018
By Hayley Carmichael
Can you and your team drink enough water to fill a bath in just 4 weeks?
What is the hydration challenge?
Our latest ‘Dare Challenge’ is all about staying hydrated in the workplace.
Dare Challenges are a great way for teams to support SCFT’s Care Without Carbon and have some fun at the same time. We’re linking self care with sustainable healthcare because often what is good for us, is also good for the environment.
We all need to drink 2 litres of water per day. Get the team together and see how many baths of water you can drink in a month!
Why you should ‘use every drop’
Drinking enough water every day is vital. It helps us stay healthy, and did you know that if we’re properly hydrated, it can help reduce the need for antibiotics for infections?
There are many benefits to getting enough to drink each day:
- We think more clearly when we’re hydrated, ensuring our patients get excellent care.
- Drink more, feel better. Water is good for our health, especially our kidneys.
- Filling up on tap water is cheaper than buying bottles, and reduces waste too.
