Life tip #20: Drink plenty of tea
Good Monday to all of you! A little while back I asked for you to share your life tips with me and the lovely Brandi of Not Your Average Ordinary shared quite a few! One she suggested was “take time for tea” and, if you know me or have been around here on Four Leaf Clover, you know I love tea! Just check out this post here and here to see for yourself.
Taking time for tea could easily be added to the many things that we should make time for on a previous life tip of mine as well as drinking more tea and drinking just about everything (other than water) less. Dedicating a whole life tip to tea, however, is perfectly a’okay by me!
I drink a cup of green tea every single morning and continue to drink at least a couple more cups throughout the day (I actually have a fresh cup next to me right now as I’m writing this). If you’re interested about the many health benefits of tea, please read my previous tea posts linked above. I’m sure that the amount of tea I drink is a huge reason for why I’m hardly ever sick and, if ever I feel something coming along, I drink plenty of tea to keep it at bay. I also recommend tea to anyone who is feeling a bit under the weather.
Even though I drink so much tea, it’s rare that I sit silently with just my cup and ponder. Do you do this? The first day I really tried meditating a couple weeks ago, I drank a cup on the balcony and it was a great start to a day that continued on a positive note. Thank you, Brandi, for the reminder! Feel free to share some of your life tips in the comments! Your tips last week blew me away and I’d love to hear what more you have to share!
