teaching our kids is thirsty work

teaching our kids is thirsty work

Many people would agree that teachers are under paid, over worked, and simply under appreciated for the incredible job they do educating our children.

Contrary to popular myth teachers work long hours and are often time poor, rushing between lessons and monitor duty in the playground during their breaks. This can lead to another “underism” – the under hydrated teacher.

Maintaining good hydration is critical in all walks of life and the opposite, dehydration, leads to fatigue, lack of concentration, poor performance, irritability, headaches, and dizziness – not characteristics we would normally want to see in our teachers.

Forward thinking school Principals have realised the importance of keeping their teaching staff refreshed and well hydrated by providing a quick and convenient means of getting an instant hot or cold drink with a BIBO Water Bar.

The BIBO Water bar is a stylish, compact water dispenser providing instant filtered, purified, chilled and boiling water on tap for busy teachers on the go. It can be located where and when they need it as long as there is a power supply and mains water in the vicinity.

Making a great tasting cup of coffee, tea, soup, or instant noodles takes seconds saving invaluable time waiting around to fill and boil the kettle. Teachers have more time to take a well earned break or get on with their day.

During summer months in particular having instant filtered, purified and chilled water available on tap is a bonus. Teachers can quickly fill their own water bottles to have on their desk or carry during playground duty.

Water from a BIBO always tastes amazing and fresh which encourages teachers to drink more, staying refreshed and hydrated. And they are helping eliminate plastic water bottles from our environment.

Here are some of the growing list of schools around Australia turning on to BIBO:

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College – International Grammar School – Andale School – Loreto College – Shore School – SCEGS Redlands – Monte Cecelia College – PLC College –  Riverview College – Lourdes Hill College – St Phillips Christian College – St Peters Primary School – Radfield College – Moriah College – Kincoppal School

BIBO would like to say a big thank you to teachers everywhere for the awesome job they do and offer schools a FREE, NO OBLIGATION 30 day trial of a BIBO Water Bar.

cold and flu remedies with BIBO

cold and flu remedies with BIBO

Keep colds and flu at bay with a BIBO.

It’s that time of the year again – cold and flu season is here.

But with good hydration and nutrition you can help prevent winter colds and flu.

When the temperature dives you should be drinking plenty of water, herbal teas and nourishing soups. Doctors say staying hydrated can help to stave off infections.

Water constantly flushes harmful toxins out through the lymph system.

And drinking hot black or green tea with lemon and honey is also a great way to keep germs at bay.

When you breathe in steam from hot drinks it stimulates the cilia – the hair follicles in the nose – to move out germs more efficiently. Lemon thins mucus, and honey is antibacterial – a perfect combination.

If you catch the sniffles in China, you are likely to be served ginger tea. Chinese herbalists have been prescribing this remedy for centuries. They claim ginger tea can miraculously cure colds, relieve headaches, combat nausea, improve circulation and fight certain viruses.

Not a tea drinker? Then any warm liquid – including chicken soup – can help relieve cold and flu symptoms. Heated drinks help loosen congestion and stimulate the flow of mucus, as well as keep you hydrated.

And researchers have recently discovered what grandmothers have suspected all along – that the ingredients in chicken soup (including the chicken stock, carrot, onion, and celery) might actually have a medicinal effect on the body’s immune system. Chicken soup was found to ease the inflammation caused by cold viruses.

But whatever you choose – tea, coffee, hot chocolate, soup or noodles – it tastes so much better with filtered, purified boiling water on tap.

A BIBO Water Bar delivers instant purified chilled and boiling water at the touch of a button.

There’s no waiting for that noisy kettle to boil. With BIBO you can make piping hot drinks and soups at any time – night or day.

So why not beat the winter blues this season with a BIBO.
