Water Cooler Health: How Listening is Good for You

Water Cooler Health: How Listening is Good for You

It comes as no surprise that there are many of us who are experiencing increased eyestrain over the last few (years) months.

The catchphrase ‘Netflix and chill’ has taken on an entirely new meaning (and a probably one is that more apt); we have our eyes glued to screens without a break for countless hours – all of which is understandable considering current circumstances.

Eventually though, we reach a point of critical overload, with our brains fizzing and our eyes burning as we binge watch yet another series, all seasons of our favourite shows from before, every conceivable YouTube channel saved to Watch Later – it all becomes a bit much.

The good news is there is a wonderful solution – one where you can rest your weary peepers – relax (or not) and still feel a little more involved and engaged with the world ‘out there’.

Listening. Yep, that’s it. Just listen. Your choice of listening material is entirely yours. Whether you prefer the soothing tones of meditative audio, the evocative story telling of your favourite books, read by some of the best voices in the business (a personal favourite being Stuart MacBride narrating books he wrote) or audio of nature at her best, listening instead of listening and watching can be a tonic for your eyes, body and soul.

Of course, we wouldn’t be us if we didn’t sneak in a mention about one of the simplest routes to better health – yep, you guessed it: wherever you are, whatever you’re doing (or not doing), make sure you drink enough water. We say this as proper hydration is key to good cognitive and all over body function.

While you head out (figuratively, not literally) on your listening journey, it’s good to bear in mind that at AquAid , we continue to operate responsibly. Whether you need your Bottle-Fed water cooler topped up, a delivery of refreshing bottled water or want to install the latest from our range of Touch-Free Water Coolers, contact us. We’re listening.
