Time is as much a British obsession as tea - and we never seem to have enough of it. We talk about making time, sharing time and spending more time with our loved ones and friends. Could we change the way we think about time and improve our daily lives?
We were intrigued about attitudes to time and tea so ran a survey to find out what the Great British public think and how you spend your time. We saw that time seems to behave differently the older you get - take a look at our Millennial v Baby Boomer infographic. And, your attitude to time changes significantly when you have children.
But no matter what your age, tea is universally popular. We discovered that, regardless of whether you were are 20 or 60 years old, you still love your daily brew, showing us that tea is truly timeless.
We were however surprised, to find out that hardly anyone brews their beloved cup of tea for long enough.
In fact, the most popular length of time to allow your tea to brew was under a minute - yet our tea experts recommend a brewtime of 3-5 minutes*.
We wanted to know what people do when waiting for the kettle to boil and the answers included some rather random surprises – take a look:
So, instead of rushing it, squeezing the bag and hurrying it along, what if we waited for it to brew and savoured the anticipation?
It might only mean a couple of extra minutes per brew but we would all drink better tea…And if those few minutes precious minutes were used in a different way, could we improve our busy and sometimes hectic lives? Here are four videos that demonstrate just how much can be squeezed into a very short time:
We love this video by dog behaviour expert, Nick Jones. It shows us how even small amounts of time training your dog can have a big impact on behaviour and Nick gives some great tips for you to try at home. If you have a dog, it’s perfect for your brewtime!
Keeping fit is very important, it's common knowledge, but it can be hard to fit exercise into your day-to-day life. Our friends at David Lloyd have produced this video on exercises you can do in your brewtime; short sharp sessions can have a big impact.
Time management is one of the trickiest tasks we carry out in this day and age. Sometimes it seems impossible to squeeze even one short phone call into our days. Nadine, a time management expert, shares with us the best way to maximise the three minutes it takes for your tea to brew. Watch this video to find out more.
Leanne is a yoga instructor and has shared some calming stretches and exercises in this video that you can practice in the three minutes you wait for your tea to brew.
It might even be simpler than that; could we Skype our relatives abroad or write them a letter?
If this makes you think about your Brewtime, we would love to hear about it – simply add a comment below. We might even reward our favourites with goodies, so do share!
