Tea To Rescue

April 2, 2013 05:48 by Sung
      

Mother Nature fooled us good yesterday with exceptional warm weather. Today it's back in the 40s.

I have a pretty strong immune system; however, when temperatures fluctuate, I get sick. That's what happened to me on Friday. I was stuck home all weekend.

Luckily my logoed tea came to the rescue. I added some lemon, honey and ginger, and it worked wonders. By Sunday I was feeling 100% better. Now all I need to do it switch my coffee habit over to tea.

Users Can Now Share Netflix Choices on Facebook

Some people love sharing their every 'Like' on the social web. So Netflix's new partnership with Facebook is sure to make a lot of movie-enthusiasts happy.

Beginning today, Netflix users can choose to connect through Facebook to see their friends' activities, share their favorite content and leave comments. However, "Facebook and Netflix won't make the sharing mandatory," assures the Atlantic Wire. Subscribers who don't want to share information can opt out.

What's in it for Netflix? CEO Reed Hastings told Bloomberg that Facebook integration will help attract more users. "Our kids are way more social than us; their kids will be way more social than them. You tell your friends about what you watch and they'll watch much more of what we offer," he said.

Of course, not everyone will want to broadcast their every move on Netflix. (Am I the only one who's not exactly proud of his Instant Queue?) But the relationship can only help improve Netflix's brand exposure. So sit down, pour yourself a hot cup of tea and start sharing!

Do you think Netflix's partnership with Facebook's can help bring in new subscribers?

Avoiding the Flu: What NOT to Do

January 18, 2013 04:01 by Brandon
      

The flu is still running rampant throughout much of America. As such, you'll find plenty of advice circulating the Internet on how to steer clear of the nasty virus. But today let's focus on something a bit different: What not to do.

The following tips were pulled from the Huffington Post:

1. Don't sneeze into your hands

My whole life I was told that covering a sneeze with your hands is the proper thing to do. But apparently that approach is outdated, as it promotes the spread of germs. The Huffington Post reports that the "new-and-improved version of cough and sneeze etiquette" calls for using into a tissue. And if you don't have any, just sneeze into the crook of your elbow.

2. Don't chug orange juice

Everybody knows that OJ is filled with vitamin C. But downing gallons of the yummy yellow stuff won't necessarily help you get over the flu any faster. According to the Huffington Post, the juice's extra calories and sugar "can actually inhibit the immune system." Yikes!

3. Don't panic

While there's a lot of hype surrounding this year's flu "epidemic", it's important to not freak out. "Rather than panicking, people should focus on what they can do," Pritish Tosh, M.D. told the Huffington Post. Getting your flu shot, staying well-rested and drinking good-for-you fluids (like water and tea) should be enough to keep you healthy. 

Any other advice on what not to do this flu season?

Spreading the Germs

With the current flu and cold season at its peak all across the country, antibacterial products seem to be flying off the shelves!

Sprays, gels, wipes - anything that will ward off germs - is selling at record speed (check out this article that I read this morning about antibacterial product sales in the US).

Since I got my flu shot in the very beginning of the season, I feel safer than some of those who have not; however, this does not mean that I'm willing to swim in a pool of germs. I still continue to wash my hands thoroughly throughout the day, use my hand sanitizer products, stay away from those who are sick, cover up when I am coughing or sneezing, and take my EXTRA vitamins and teas.

After all, it is not just the flu we need to watch out for. The common cold, stomach viruses, sinus infections, throat infections, etc. - so much to worry about! Of course, nothing is truly 100% guaranteed to prevent getting sick, but as long as we follow all measures to stay as germ-free as possible, we can at least prevent spreading the illnesses as much as we can.

New Year's Resolution

Every year, I try to make a resolution that is realistic. This year, one of my resolutions is to cut back on coffee. Everyday I have at least three servings. Even when I'm not at work, I stop at Starbucks to get my fix (my favorite is caramel macchiato).

My co-workers are avid tea drinkers and are always telling me how lovely teas are. So after much research, I found that there are tons of flavors and tea varieties to choose from.

Not only is tea much healther for you, it has loads of antioxidants which are great for the body. So if you are looking for ideas for your next promotional campaign, come check out our huge selection of logo teas

Tea Time

I am a avid coffee drinker. Every morning, my day doesn't start until I sip on some delicous coffee. For the past 3 years, my routine has not changed. Needless to say, some of my coworkers love tea more than coffee. So after researching about the contents of tea leaves, I was blown away by it's benefits. For starters, tea has loads of antioxidents. They contain about 20 types of amino acids which are the building blocks of protein. They also have high amounts of vitamin K, and mineral content. Above all, it has more caffeine than coffee, which is a huge plus for me. So next time you think of coffee, you might want to consider drinking tea.

Tea?? But I'm Not Sick?!

I drink water and coffee (during the week that is) and that is about it.  I don't deviate often, until last week that is.  While I was out visiting a customer, they offered me some iced logo tea. For some reason I said I would have some.  I did not regret it, it was such a nice refreshing change of pace.  Not only was it flavored and different it was imprinted with the companys logo!  What a great idea for coffee shops and pharmacies, could you think of a better way to get your brand out there, besides soothing someone's cold or tea craving??  Check out these great sample packs :

As we get closer to the end of May, many people will be preparing for Memorial Day. For me, Memorial Day marks the start of BBQ season. Every year, my and I put together a huge BBQ. This year will be no different, but hopefully better. There will be plenty of Logo Teas for the tea lovers as well as Promotional Mints for all the garlic and onion lovers. Since I love both, I better bring a lot of mints with me. Motivators has some great promotional products to make your memorial day special.

Mug or Tumbler?

April 17, 2012 10:03 by Ozzie
      

Two weeks ago, I wrote about how I have been trying to overcome my coffee addiction by substituting it with herbal teas. This week, I realized one more thing - ever since I have been carrying around my little packets of promotional teas, I have come across another dilemma. Should I drink out of a ceramic  promotional mug or a plastic / metal promotional tumbler? What is the difference, you may ask. Well, they are both great promotional giveaways, that's for sure, but herbal teas are better brewed in ceramic (or glass) pots and cups. Ceramic helps savor the flavor of the teas, whereas, plastic or metal-coated teapots and tumblers actually change the flavor of your teas making it not so pleasant. So next time you are making a cup of tea in the office, instead of grabbing your insulated tumbler that you would normally use for your coffee and teas, grab your promotional mug instead - to make sure that you bring out the best flavor and ENJOY!

Tea-Time

Anyone who knows me, knows how addicted I "was" to caffeine. I would not be able to function in the mornings without my LARGE cup of hazelnut coffee, (and another in the afternoon and another in the evening). But to everyone's surprise, I have been able to overcome my addiction over the past couple of months. It was actually easier to quit than I anticipated. One day I just didn't drink my coffee and before I knew it days and weeks went by without me even remembering my old "best friend". How did I accomplish this, you may ask. Well, I attribute most of my success to substitution - with herbal tea. Now, instead of dropping by Dunkin' Donuts every morning before work, I make sure to choose a different tea from my wide range of herbal teas. Being that I try to not just drink the teas, but also research and learn what different teas or good for, I started roaming through Motivators site and found our Logo Tea section to be quite a treat. Now I can shop for my teas through the Motivators site as well!
