Drink some Tea
I am a self proclaimed teaholic, and I am not afraid to say so. I drink tea multiple times a day, and I have a favorite brew for every mood. In the mornings, when I need energy, I usually go with a spicy blend. At midday I need a cup of strong black tea in order to reach the end of the day. And right before going to bed, you’re never wrong with taking a relaxing chamomile sip.
Just preparing each cup is like a ritual, and going through it is extremely relaxing. Timing the right moment when to remove the infusion and making tea gives me great satisfaction, and is an awesome form of natural stress relied in itself!
Read a Novel
When you are in need to shut up the buzz of social media around you, nothing beats sitting down and reading a book. When you need an escape, you can find it within the pages of a book. I find that fiction novels work out the best; they can be very inspirational and I can connect more with the characters.
