It’s simple, really – RELAXATION. We lead a pretty busy lifestyle. Mother’s Day weekend is also the weekend that my husband and the guys in his family (dad, uncles, cousins, nephews, etc) all go on their annual Fishing Trip. It’s just what they do, they’ve done it since he was a kiddo. So needless to say Mother’s Day weekend doesn’t really include any relaxing.
I try to gift myself a little bit of “me-time” as often as I can. Which sadly, isn’t often enough. One of the ways I take time out for myself, refocus, ground my thoughts, and give myself a bit of happiness is with tea breaks. I had a wonderful routine prior to having Abby and while pregnant. I need to get back into that routine.
Taking some time to enjoy some tea and meditate a bit really goes a long way. A typical day with some me time for me is:
10:30/11am on a workday I start to feel a little sluggish. So I take some time out and opt for a puerh. Pu·erh is a different type of tea – richer than black tea and wonderfully smooth and malty. Pu·erh provides a natural boost of sustained energy and delivers focus and clarity. Pu·erh is the oldest known variety of tea and is picked from 500 year-old trees before undergoing a special fermentation process. As things of value take time to mature, so it is with Pu·erh.
I really do get an actual quick energy boost while I enjoy a moment to reflect on what I have accomplished so far in the day, and then take a moment to see what is ahead for the rest of the day. That time allows me to refocus on my tasks at hand.
Then around 2/3pm I hit the workday slump where I need something to keep me going for the rest of the day. I opted for a Basil Mint Pu-erh because I was looking for something to soothe my upset tummy. The mint does it for me and I love the flavors of this tea. I added some local honey from Happy Bees Apiary to help soothe an irritated throat from my allergies, and I was set.
Then for my evening choice, I picked the Chocolate Mint Tea! It was absolutely delightful. I love the Indulgent Collection because they are just that, decadent and indulgent. I chose the Chocolate Mint because it’s an herbal tea so it had minimal caffeine which would allow me to rest and relax from the day helping me to unwind.
There are so many varieties of Numi Organic Tea to choose from. They make a perfect treat for yourself or a gift to someone you love. We also are huge fans that they are Fair Trade Certified. Which means that they are approved by Fair Trade USA which enables sustainable development and community empowerment!
