Daily Water was founded one day when I was working at my desk and I experienced some mental fog.
It was 11am, and I realized that although I drank two cups of coffee earlier, I had completely forgotten to drink any water! I looked around my office and noticed no-one else was drinking water either. This was the 'aha' moment for me.
After some research and surveying over 150 employees, I discovered that around 80% of desk workers are chronically dehydrated.
Being a programmer, my first solution involved a slackbot, reminders, and was hopeless. If you’ve ever used a fitbit, you know how easy it is to ignore those nagging reminders. After months of iterating and testing prototypes in real offices, I settled on the low-tech solution we sell now.
So why is hydration so important?
There’s overwhelming evidence that drinking a sufficient amount of water helps people stay clear-headed and productive.
When we're working at our desks, switching between a million different tasks, staying hydrated is one of the first things that gets postponed, yet it’s one of the most important things we can do for our health.
Join me and many others in the hydration revolution!
