Squeeze more in with Actimel – win tickets to Gary Barlow at the O2

Do you ever feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day? Do you wish you could squeeze more in?

I do.

I’m a total sucker for it. Take last week for instance. Thursday was a really busy day for me – I was delivering a half day Twitter workshop in Bristol in the morning, then whizzing over to London to run a social media workshop in the evening. In between I also had to squeeze in a couple of hours of other work. Of course what always happens when you have lots on? You get offered more work. And what do I always do? Say yes.


It seems that no matter how busy I am, I always want to lever in than little bit extra, just to tip me into the chocolate digestive zone.

The chocolate digestive zone

The chocolate digestive zone is a very dangerous place. It’s where I have so much to do that I panic and just eat biscuits instead. I feel like in order to get everything done, I need to constantly fuel myself with inappropriate snacks, just in case I get hungry and that means I can’t concentrate.

(I do have a bit of a worry about getting hungry, so tend to pre-empt it by always nibbling on something. I don’t know what I imagine will happen – that I’ll get stranded on a mountain top somewhere, my blood sugar levels will plummet, and that the only thing that will keep me going is the fact that I ate that emergency Rice Krispie square at the station an hour earlier?)

What I should do of course is prepare myself a range of wholesome salads and nutritious nibbles, but that always feels like such a lot of faff – much easier just to reach a sneaky hand out for something.


All of this is why pairing up with Actimel to promote their fabulous Twitter competition felt like such a good fit for me. The giveaway is all about squeezing more into your family day as Actimel, like me, believe that squeezing a lot in is a good thing. In fact, they squeeze yogurt, live cultures, fruit puree, calcium and essentials vitamins B6 & D into every 100g bottle of Actimel. Their fruit flavours even have Vitamin C!

Because Actimel believe squeezing a lot in is a good thing, they are offering you the opportunity to be squeezed into once in a lifetime great events – in this case an amazing music concert at the O2 in London.

Tweet to win!

It’s dead easy to enter. All you have to do is follow @ActimelUK on Twitter and tweet them with the hashtag #squeezemorein to tell them how you are squeezing more into your day. Perhaps you’re juggling several jobs, running the kids from club to club and all at the same time as learning the play the trumpet. Maybe you’re training for a marathon and cooking a lasagne. Whatever you’re doing, Actimel want to hear about it.

The promotion ends at 23.59 on Thursday 6th March 2014 and you can read the full T&Cs on their Facebook page.

Good luck!

    Its such as you read my mind! You seem to understand a lot about this, like
    you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you simply can do
    with some percent to pressure the message house
    a little bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
