BRITA's #PourOClock Giveaway




It's the launch of BRITA's Pour O'Clock campaign today and I will  be taking part in  this hydration initiative.

Pour O'Clock launched at 4pm, the time which BRITA research found that most people need an energy boost to get them through the rest of the day.  

I know I do, I watched my routine yesterday up until 4pm, I had had very little sleep, Monday night, as up with  Granny.

Morning, up at 6.30 am to give Granny her breakfast, polished, hoovered, ran her bath,  given a full clean of her room,  cleaned her bathroom, sat with her twice in all this time  to keep her feeling special, made lunch, ironed, written for my blog, trialled a few products, planned dinner 


4pm yesterday I was  beat,  grabbed a biscuit as I started to get ready for teatime and evening, I still had blogging, dinner for Granny, then another one for the rest of us.  I went to bed exhausted, today I will be pouring water and tweeting.

So today at 4pm along with hopefully some of my readers I will be trying a glass of water and update this post to let you know if the sugar swap worked!!


Instead of eating something sugary BRITA are urging people to have healthier workplace habits and reach for a drink of water instead  - trying to get people to pour at four!

As well as giving you an energy boost, staying hydrated aids concentration levels. Renowned London dietician and nutritionist, Jo Travers commented, "People spend a large amount of time at work so integrating healthy habits into their day is crucial.  Hydration is important as it has an impact on our productivity and concentration."

You can join in with the 'pour at four' conversation today on Twitter with the hashtag #PourOClock.

I  hope you feel energised after pouring at four and I will also be giving away a 
FillandGo Brita bottle to celebrate the initiative!

  1. Thanks Jo! I am an early bird and I am usually up at 4am so I tend to feel tired after lunch around 1pm so I just make a coffee or take the dog out for some fresh air as I dare not nap! I am sure I could swap the caffine for water though - I do need to cut down as that is probably why I don't sleep well!
