So these 7 days of Teas and Tips was inspired by my members of the guided mindset journey I have been running since October 15 and in honor of those getting on board November 1.
The story I hear most often when people first start working with me, reminds me of pain in my own life.
The journey of stress hunger, anxiety hunger, depression hunger and feeling your value is tied to your contribution at home, at work or in the community. I am huge follower and fan of Rachel Hollis and I loved how she addressed these topics and can I say, I even opened my eyes to my own lies and limiting beliefs in these areas in her book, Girl Wash Your Face.
So Todays start it off right, Tip and Tea are.
The Teas I am featuring today are Green tea with Lemongrass and Verbana Green Tea, and Lemon and Honey tea.
First I love to think of the Health Benefits.
Lemongrass and Verbana Green Tea
Something really cool is that this tea works on strengthening and easing muscle tissue.
Why should you care? It means it helps all of your internal organs. Your liver, spleen, your intestines , your gallbladder, your heart and lungs.
If you workout this means it helps ease muscles soreness and the green tea is full of antioxidants to also reduce stress on the body.
Why should you care?
That means it helps prevent the underlying causes of getting sick, from the common cold to cancer. Immunity is a strong word that makes us think of reality shows, but it can be earned one cup at a time.
Lemon and Honey Tea
This one is simpler it helps relax and soothe the throat and is great for those with reflux or anxiety, where stress tends to grab you by the throat and it tastes delicious.
Now for the TIPS... I'd love to hear whats working for you , so if you like the post take a screen shot and share it on social and tag me @lilyaronin. It always makes my day.
Tip of the day. I use my cup of tea like a shield. Think about your craziest and most anxiety driven moments. The biggest struggle is our impulsivity and lack of patience to look for the solution, be curious and avoid that instant anger. (its my biggest challenge anyway) I use my cup of tea to slow down and get curious. How can I react to the situation like bedtime with my kids better than I did last time. Last time this response caused a huge fight, or I saw a little air go out of my kids happiness balloon. This time how can I slow down and make room for their feelings, my feelings and make our home a happier more understanding place. That is a lot for a cup of Tea, but on these kind of night's when I am feeling the pressure, the rush, I write on my tea cup affirmations like,"i am patient" I love my kids", I understand "
This remind me and immediately help me act as if... the truth is the ability is inside us all along and if we don't have the skills we have the responsibility to fail at this thing and keep trying to improve, Keep learning, because thats the deal when we are growing humans.
Tell me what is your biggest bedtime struggle? How might slowing it down a bit help?
