i hope by now that i am consuming tubs of tea on a daily basis, the english being the champions of the beverage.
over the past weeks and months of chaos, holidays, and starting a new year, i have come to think about tea as the drink of choice. fantasies of days begun with cups of tea and shuffling around in slippers have floated through my head whenever i feel overly stressed.
create rituals that inspire peace of mind. do you crave tea, coffee, naps, or time to read? giving one of these to yourself on a regular basis can increase productivity. it is only our inner puritan who disagrees. if your mind is gnarled up with stress and strain, far better to take a break and then come back to what you are doing with a fresh perspective.
how can you give yourself a break this week? try it and then see how much you get done afterwards. then, tell the inner puritan to shove off.
