Self Care Saturday: Have A Cup of Tea

I will admit I am not much of a tea drinker, or at least I wasn’t. But, now I quite enjoy a cup of warm tea once or twice a day. Try drinking tea just on Saturday and see if you can learn to like it. Teas has some awesome health benefits, especially white and green tea varieties. Opt for the most organic with the least amount of preservatives to get the most benefits. I have not tried white tea, but I really do enjoy green tea. I add a cinnamon stick and a tbsp of French Vanilla creamer. i Take it out to the the garden, or sit on the yard swing and enjoy all the lovely sounds around me. It is a great way to start a morning, or end a day.

Maybe you are just a little stressed out. Sit down with a cup of tea and practice focusing on your breathing and away from your thoughts. By the time the tea is gone you will feel ready to go again.

View the videos below to learn about all the health benefits, and some possible risks of drinking tea. One thing that really caught my eye, is that the tannins in tea can decrease the amount of Iron the body can absorb. So, be sure and have your cup of tea an hour before a meal, or two hours after, never with a meal. Here is a link to read more about green tea benefits.
