Make yourself a cup of tea.
Living with tea drinkers has made me appreciate a good cup of tea. Every morning when I come downstairs into the kitchen my roommates are brewing a big pot of Earl Grey. The flavor is delicious & earthy.
What I especially love about tea-drinking is that it slows you down a bit. Having tea time with others is a way to relax & chat in the afternoon or have conversation with a roommate before leaving for work.
Having tea for one is an opportunity for mindfulness. As you take each sip notice the flavors & notice yourself relaxing…pay attention to the ever-changing landscape of your mind. Linger/ daydream/ think/ reflect.
My favorite two teas are chai & earl grey- both give you a little kick in the morning but don’t wear out your adrenals & nervous system like coffee. What are your favorite teas?
