You can’t be everyone’s cup of tea, so you might as well just be you. #WiseWordWednesday
I am obsessed with tea.
I didn’t always love tea. When I was younger, I was extremely grossed out that my mom drank tea and always gagged as I poured her whole milk into a lipton tea. Since then, I’ver come to realize the many health benefits of tea. Not only do I enjoy the health benefits of tea, but ever since I started to include tea in my relaxing routine just having a cup of tea puts me at ease.
Drinking green tea really helps you digestive track. This weekend I spent at my grandmothers ( hey grandma!) and she only had lipton and I noticed an obvious difference when going to the bathroom. ( Tmi?? I don’t care..!) I feel so much healthier and less bloated. It’s a real life saver when you are a college student and often eating carb heavy meals like pasta.
2. Weight Loss
Green tea helps you burn fat. Need I say more?
3. Kills bacteria
Apple a day keeps the doctor away? #WiseWordWednesday
See a dentist less and get sick less often.
4. Helps keep blood sugar low.
Green tea has more caffeine than black tea, but doesn’t give you that crash that coffee does. I was drinking tons of coffee at work and then was coming home to crashing big time. I couldn’t understand why I needed to take a nap after work all the time until my bestie pointed out that I was having caffeine crashes from all the coffee I was drinking. I’ve been drinking tons of green tea at work and have been feeling energized without the crash.
While this has been mostly about green tea, there’s a million types of tea and they all have different benefits. Drinking chamomile can help you sleep. Plus brands like Yogi have teas for everything from energy to detox.
Enjoy your tea,
