Spending quality time with family and friends should be a top priority, but it’s also important to find a few hours or a few minutes of solitude amidst the hustle and bustle of life. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find time to unwind, relax, and enjoy being our own company. This is mostly due to the fact that we feel obligated to take care of everything else while putting our own needs on the back burner, and some even feel like “me time” is an act of selfishness. However, “me time” is vital for our health and state of mind. It helps us de-stress, find balance, re-evaluate our priorities and goals, gives us a sense of empowerment, and re-ignite a zest for life. True happiness begins within you, after all.
The meaning of “me time” varies from person to person and doesn’t necessarily have to cost anything. More than 80 percent of women have gone elsewhere to find sanctuary, including retreating to the bedroom (most popular), heading to the bathroom, vacating their property for a friend or family member’s house, hanging out in the car and even finding a spot in the garage.
My idea of “me time” means tea time. Tea’s historical background is long-winded and complex. It has been regarded for thousands and thousands of years in the East as a key to wisdom, happiness, and good health. Many researchers can easily vouch for its effectiveness of bringing a wealth of benefits to one’s health. I can even attest to this! This is one of the reasons why I consider myself as one of the strongest advocates of tea drinking.
That first sip of fresh, steaming tea rejuvenates and gives me a sense of renewal. It also gives me a sense of serenity, yet a burst of energy at the same time, especially if I have a busy, enduring day ahead of me. I love to snuggle up with a good read as I’m sipping on tea. There are many different types of tea out there, and each one has its own set of notable qualities. This includes flavor, differing health benefits, and various levels of caffeine. You can learn what type of tea is best for you here. One of my favorite brands of tea is Adagio Teas. Their teas are fresh and affordable since the come directly from growers.
