Updated: Mar 17, 2023

Always short of time? Rushing around? The struggle to get your kids, pets, and partner organised let alone yourself?

You are definitely not the only on and find a way to incorporate some calm in all the chaos.

What a welcome and relaxing sight - a pipe dream? No matter how manic things are in life try to take a few minutes to restock and calm down and take in some healthy tea. It makes for a better day & a happier you - your mind and body will thank you!

"How can I possibly make time to make a pot of tea in the morning? - I have zero time!"

Life can be crazy - especially now it is slowly returning to normal - social plans, catching up with so many people now that we can, work responsibilities, school days, sports clubs, general chores, looking after pets etc. In our house it is exactly the same - as a mum, you feel it is your responsibility to make sure the kids have everything they need for school, done their spellings, washed, eaten, know the drill. Let alone think about what you need.

The thought of having a peaceful cup of tea sounds ridiculous, right?

Tea is such an amazingly healthy drink, whether it be herbal, fruit, or real loose-leaf tea. There are so many health benefits along with the calming effect it has on us. It is incredibly important in our hectic lives that we look after ourselves and our bodies & minds - not just those around us.

4 Top Tips to make you happier and healthier
  1. Try to get organised the night before - this can be quicker than you imagine - just 5 or 10 minutes to get clothes prepared, food prepared. Delegate more responsibility to those around you.

  2. Get up 5 minutes earlier and go and brew yourself a gorgeous cup or pot of tea - teas only need to be infused between 2-8 minutes depending on your choice of tea - you can then take this with you whilst you are getting ready

3. How about enjoying cold brew tea? Pre-prepare a jug of iced tea by cold brewing overnight in the fridge - a great healthy drink full of vitamins and antioxidants ready to grab in the morning to take to work. Put the tea and cold water into a pitcher and leave this in the fridge overnight and then pour this into your drink bottle for the day ahead. This is a great option for those busy weeks when you just don't have time to make a fresh pot every time you want a cup of tea.

This will keep fresh for a few days in the fridge. The pitcher contains 2 litres and is perfect for prepared cold brew/iced teas. The infuser can be unscrewed so is good for loose leaf tea or loose leaf tea in teabags. Please see our full range for these.

4 - Why not take a bag of your favourite tea with an infuser to work and allow yourself 10 minutes to reset your mind and enjoy a tasty cup of goodness?

Most of all - be kind to

yourself - take a deep breath - give yourself time - you deserve it!

Find your happy with Happy Leaf!
