So make sure you drink at least the recommended 2-3L of water every day.

Dehydration is actually the number one trigger of daytime fatigue. That’s why so many people find themselves hitting a mid-afternoon lull at the office.

That’s why it’s best to keep a glass of water by your desk to sip throughout the day to help you stay hydrated and focused.
