We are a small business and just like you, we are trying to adapt, adjust, and navigate the new normal in our lives and in our communities. Due to these changes we all cannot help but feel an elevated level of stress.
Making a cup of tea can bring you some calm if you are upset, frustrated, and anxious. We are not talking about a simple brew like a tea-pod but the actual simple process of brewing tea leaves that can calm you by at least 25%. It's a cultural crutch in times of need.
Here's how stress relief is found in tea. First, choose your tea, heat distilled water to the recommended temperature, relax and wait. Next, measure the exact amount of tea leaves and pour the water over the tea leaves, set a timer to the recommended steep time, relax and wait. Once the timer goes off, remove the tea leaves. Now, take a second to look at the beautiful color in your cup and inhale the aroma. Final step (and added stress reliever), sip it slowly. There you have it, you have just reduced your stress level by at least 25%.
Try this the next time you feel stressed...take a second to stop, think, and brew. It may just calm your stress.
Peace, Love & A Cup of Tea
