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.

AquAid Water Coolers: How We Help Our Environment

AquAid Water Coolers: How We Help Our Environment

As today is the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, we decided to highlight a number of other possibly lesser-known advantages you benefit from when you install watercoolers from AquAid.

Kinder to the environment

By using a water cooler dispenser, you are helping to protect our environment. We use billions of individual plastic water bottles each year and millions end up in our rubbish each day. By drinking water from a re-usable water bottle and refilling our water bottles from a water cooler, we can significantly reduce this number. This means that you can still enjoy the convenience of having water with you at all times and be safe in the knowledge that you are lessening the harmful impact on the environment.

More branches local to you

With more than 23 branches positioned across the UK, our multiple distribution centres allow us to be nearer to our customers – shorter delivery distances reduce fuel usage and associated carbon emissions.

Water from source

Our three sources of mineral and spring water, one each in England, Northern Ireland and Scotland, were all selected in large part due their central locations, which reduces the carbon footprint associated with the deliveries to our depots.

Creates opportunity and hope

At AquAid, an integral component of our business is helping those in need. This core belief is illustrated in each installation of our Mainsfed Water Coolers and each purchase of Bottled Water. We donate a portion of these revenues to charities that implement safe, sustainable water resources throughout Africa.

Whatever your water cooler requirements are, AquAid have over twenty two years of experience in the provision of the right water cooler for your work space – wherever you’re situated and whatever space you occupy throughout England, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

How to Help Children Hydrate More

How to Help Children Hydrate More

It is no surprise that teaching our children to drink water more may appear a task easier said than done. However, as many adults, parents and teachers know, there is a secret weapon in our arsenal. It stems from a well-known phrase: lead by example. It may seem rather tired and a bit worn out nevertheless, it is true and it is effective.

How?

Children often emulate adult behaviour, especially those adults with whom they have daily interaction. If you as the carer of a child are seen to drink water regularly, it is more probable that a child will be better encouraged to do the same, instead of merely telling the child to drink water without any example shown.

Why?

The results from a great deal of research, including a recent study at the University of East London , show that children are better able to concentrate, retain information, take part in activities and are able to better function overall the more hydrated they are.

Method?

Uninterrupted access to refreshing spring and filtered water – maintained at a pleasing ambient or chilled temperature – all at the press of a button. With more than 22 branches nationwide, this is easily achieved by installing a water cooler from AquAid.

Benefits?

Healthier and happier children of course. With AquAid, there are added benefits and these are at no additional cost to your school, academy, college or university.

For each Mainsfed Water Dispenser we install, a portion of that revenue is donated to charities. Charities such as Christian Aid the AquAid founded Africa Trust. These donations are utilised to implement clean water resources where they are needed most, like in schools and villages, in countries throughout Africa. At AquAid, we understand that helping others is key component to a healthy and strong organisation as is attested by our collective 30 years of supporting these charities.

The Advantages of the AquAid Bottle-Fed Water Cooler

The Advantages of the AquAid Bottle-Fed Water Cooler

As with all our bottled water products, AquAid provides Bottled Water Coolers and water filtration that ensure you are drinking only the finest fresh water available, drawn from three sources around the United Kingdom.

Our bottled water is pure and filtered to remove any harmful chemicals and bacteria, leaving you feeling healthier and refreshed. Many water-processing plants use dangerous chemicals to purify their water, but AquAid do not. Our water is as clean as nature intended it to be.

Bottled Water Coolers are the perfect solution where portable water or a mains water supply is unavailable.

A Bottle-Fed Water Cooler is ideal for placement in any workplace and for any size of staff contingent. These free-standing coolers are easy to move to a new location within the organisation should this be required.

Another benefit of having a Bottle-Fed water cooler is easy access to a source of proper hydration at all times. Tests have shown that a drop in body fluids can lead to poor mental and physical performance of up to 30%. Having access to fresh water and being able to replenish your water throughout the day will ensure that you are never thirsty, and that you are always able to perform at your best.

There is a reduced environmental impact. Our water bottles are collected, thoroughly cleaned, sanitised and re-used multiple times. Once spent, they are granulated and re-cycled in an ecologically friendly manner.

As we have branches throughout the United Kingdom, our bottled water delivery is quick and efficient.  We also offer an urgent water replenishment service.

Installing a Bottled Water Dispenser from AquAid not only means a healthier and hydrated you, but also the opportunity of the delivery of life-changing safe water for those in need. For each bottle of water supplied, a donation is made to the charities that AquAid have supported for more than 20 years. These donations are at no additional cost to our customers.

No matter what sort of water cooler you are looking for, at AquAid we have the perfect solution for you. Have a look at our easy-to-navigate website for the full range of water coolers that we offer for your convenience and continued health and hydration.
