Revitalising Britain’s daily commute
Helping everyday heroes arrive feeling more pumped up.
Day in day out, come rain or shine, there we are looking for the best seat, running for the bus or standing on a cold, windy platform. Millions of Britons the length and breadth of the country, giving their all on the daily commute. It’s not for the faint hearted. It’s hard graft, demanding the endurance, mental strength and split-second decision making ability of a true athlete. Luckily we Brits are a tough old bunch with a stiff upper lip, and a can-do attitude (much-needed in rush hour traffic or after the umpteenth train cancellation, that). What’s more, you can make your commute even better by following our commuting tips, like making sure you always have some water on the go!
Taking 5,000 years to travel one mile!
The UK’s daily commute is precisely the kind of thing that at Buxton Water, we believe deserves to be saluted. After all, we know a thing or two about gruelling journeys ourselves – our water’s filtered over 5,000 years through a mile of Derbyshire limestone, and then naturally pumped up. Phew!
Of course, we understand that most people don’t feel as pure and pristine at the end of their commute. But we reckon there are ways and means to help yourself feel more refreshed. Like taking a bottle of crystal clear Buxton water on the go with you, for a start.
After all, it can be hot, sweaty work out there, and water loss* can make everything feel that little bit harder. So it’s a good idea to keep yourself hydrated on the go – helping you stay calmer and more collected, even when things get super-busy around you.
Up for a daily challenge?
When you’re armed with a bottle of our natural refreshment, you’ll be more up for commuting challenges that could turn your morning marathon or evening endurance test into something that’s far better for mind, body and soul.
Like getting off two stops early and walking. Running for every bus, even when it’s not disappearing into the distance. And beating your personal best on your pedal through traffic.
The choice is yours of course, so why not make up challenges of your own? The more out-there the better, we think. Like taking the cross country route to the office. Or doing the human slalom on a busy platform. Whatever does it for you, you can be sure that little changes - like having some water on the go and making your commute more interesting - can make big difference to the way you look at the trip you have to take every day.
So, let’s celebrate those feats of willpower that commuting brings out in us all on a daily basis. Because with great healthy hydration when you are on the go, and a positive mental attitude, anyone can make the changes that can help you arrive more refreshed and energised, no matter how challenging your journey is, everyday.
* Water contributes to the maintenance of normal physical and cognitive function and normal regulation of body temperature.
At least 2L of water, from all sources, should be consumed per day, as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle
