Tea vs stress

Tea has always been my choice for stress relief. Taking moment to enjoy good tea has always be n a true pleasure.
   Clear your mind and think like a Taoist, leave your troubles behind and go with the flow.
   Focusing on something creative while you enjoy your tea. Paint, write or compose.
Here are the key things I do when fighting stress.
1-Ensure you are somewhere quiet so you may focus o n your tea.
2-Make a cup of tea. Pull out your special tea ware to make it special.
3-while it is steeping breath in the aroma of the tea
4-Put on some relaxing tunes
5-sit back and sip. Think of the tea only.
6-keep on brewing!  When you have the time keep on brewing tea.

Keep calm & drink tea.

*drink outside, fresh air always helps
*start a journal that you can work In while you let go
*turn off the lights & light a candle. Great way to ease headaches of life.

Tea and Stress

A bit after my last post, last Tuesday, there was a fire at my building. Dispite everything I have been pulling through quite well. I technically have no home and yet I am fine with all this. What has been keeping me going has been strangely Teaopia, or rather tea itself. Dispite what happens I know I can go to work Monday to Friday and have a warm comforting cup of tea. Black, green, white, oolong, tisstanes, Mate or Rooibos.
Does not matter which I turn to total relaxation comes with it. I have read a lot about tea over the last while. Each stating that it does something good or something bad. Health benefits or downsides. Etc etc.
I believe that if I did not have tea on hand I would fall apart. Does anyone feel the same out there?
