If you're like most people, your morning routine probably includes a hot shower and a quick breakfast. But for those of us who want to get the most out of their mornings, we need to optimize both our personal and professional lives.
In the following blog, I'm going to share with you some great ways to make morning tea not just a time to "catch up," but also one to "jumpstart" your day.
Without further ado, here are five reasons why you should start your day with a hot cup of morning tea:
1. Promotes Energy and Alertness
If you're like most people, your body doesn't store much of its energy overnight. This means that you will probably feel sluggish and out of it when you first wake up.
To counteract this, taking a hot shower and drinking some morning tea will help to promote energy and alertness. This is because caffeine has been proven to increase your body's production of epinephrine (adrenaline), which will get you going in the morning.
2. Boosts Your Mood
If you're like most people, your mood can fluctuate throughout the day. This is due to the fact that your daily habits are ultimately what cause your brain to produce more or less serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a major role in depression and anxiety.
Taking a hot shower and drinking some morning tea will help to raise your levels of serotonin, which will consequently increase your mood and general outlook on life.
3. Helps You Wake Up
How you feel when you wake up is usually determined by your body's internal clock. This means that if you want to get the most out of your morning, you need to be sure to get the right amount of sleep.
To do this, drinking a cup of morning tea is a good idea because it helps keep your body on schedule for the rest of the day. By doing this, you can reduce stress and have more energy throughout the morning and throughout the day in general.
4. Keeps Your Body Hydrated
So many people make the mistake of drinking coffee or tea to wake up in the morning because they think it will help them wake up. However, this can actually be a step back in the opposite direction.
Many people are so obsessed with their morning coffee that they forget to drink water throughout the day as well. Drinking your morning tea, on the other hand, helps keep your body hydrated, which will prevent you from feeling fatigued and sluggish throughout the day.
5. Promotes Weight Loss
Drinking coffee and tea before breakfast is one of the quickest ways to overload your body with caffeine, which is a diuretic. This means that it will lead to you having to urinate more throughout the day.
This is not only inconvenient, but it can also leave your bladder feeling strained and you feeling tired as well.
Taking a hot shower and drinking some morning tea, on the other hand, will prevent this because it contains a little bit of caffeine but also a ton of water. This means that you will have to urinate less during the day and that you can continue to feel energetic throughout the day.
Overall, drinking morning tea is one of the best ways to start your day because it helps you to avoid feeling sluggish in the morning and throughout the rest of the day. Try it today and feel the difference!
How to prepare a morning tea?
Morning tea is just a combination of a few ingredients - tea, milk, sugar and a slice of lemon.
The most popular choice is to brew green tea and add a slice of lemon over it.While there are many health benefits to drinking green tea on a regular basis, some people find the flavour too overwhelming. In that case, you can add milk and sugar to soften the taste.
You can also try out different combinations; you can even experiment with some almond milk and honey. Also, it is a good idea to experiment with different types of tea to see which one fits your taste best.
After preparing your tea, grab one of your favorite mugs, (if you don't have a favorite and ready to find one, check out our mugs right here) and pour the freshly made tea into it. It will take you between 10-15 minutes to get that morning boost.
After the pouring, take a big sip of that delicious tea. Now, you are ready to go throughout your day.
Hope this helps you with your morning routine!
