Days are often long, and almost always stressful in one way or another. There’s nothing quite like taking a moment completely for yourself to relax. To savour the moment.
What do you do to relax?
Right now, I’m checking out my reader and sipping away at a gorgeous smelling T leaf T tea. I’ve been on a bit of a herbal tea buzz lately – I can’t get enough of it – and this is no exception.
It’s a premium herbal tisane called ‘restful’. It’s a mix of chamomile, green rooibos, vervain, rose buds, tulsi, ginger, cinnamon and lavender. Ummmm… F-yeah!
I have another tea that I crack out on weekend called ‘coconut rough’, which has red rooibos, coconut and carob to make it smell like a delicious chocolatey mug of chocolatey deliciousness (sorry, my mouth’s watering so bad that my vocabulary’s dried up).
Then, there’s my peppermint tea. Because somedays you just want a good peppermint tea.
I look forward to these warm, calming cups of tea before bed on weeknights. It helps me drift off into a daydream of what happy ‘could’s and ‘might’s – the kind of place you want to go before bed, so you’re not still buzzing with the thoughts that consumed you all day, too.
Do you have a relaxing routine?
How often do you do it?
Is it something that you can share with others, or is it special alone time for just you and your thoughts?
Or is there something you’re dying to try, but just can’t seem to make it happen?
