Finish it with a relaxing and delicious cup of tea.
Immerse yourself in the therapeutic and meditative process of making your tea. But you don’t need a full Japanese tea ceremony: just step away from all that outside craziness for a second and find some “me” time to care for yourself, calm your nerves,and enjoy some peace of mind…
Take a deep breath and walk through these relaxing steps:
Open a tin of your yummy tea and smell that rich aroma of calm and invigoration. Feel and admire the texture of the tea leaves as they dance in your cup.
Hear your water boiling and feel the weight of your favorite tea cup.
Listen to the gentle stream of water fall into your cup and watch the leaves unfurl.
Feel time stop when you take that first sip. Ahhhh.
And feel the relaxation and peace fill your body.
