3 Ways to Incorporate Tea Into Your Busy Lifestyle

Tea has long been a way to infuse some healthy herbs and water intake into your everyday life. While there are many ways to enjoy tea, it can be a time-consuming hobby that can feel cumbersome. However, there are ways to enjoy tea in a busy lifestyle that are satisfying and promote healthy living.

Tea Checkpoints

Set up tea checkpoints for yourself, and you’ll never find yourself lacking in tea options. Set up tea stations in your office and at home, in addition to other spaces that you regularly inhabit during your day-to-day life. This means you’ll never be out of reach of a tea chest or tea bag. Tailoring the flavors of your tea checkpoints is also a good way to make your day feel a little more luxurious. Certain teas can help with stress—great for the office tea chest—while others can promote energy, great for tucking into your purse or briefcase for days when your energy is low.

As part of a tea checkpoint, force yourself to take tea breaks. Even if these breaks are only three to five minutes long once a day, take the time to enjoy the health benefits of a cup of tea. If you set aside time to relax and recharge with a cup of tea, your body will thank you. Tea breaks can serve as a great way to de-stress and get away from work for just a few minutes.

Take it to Go

We don't always have the option of relaxing and sipping our tea slowly at home. That's why it's great to have a way to take your tea to go. A tea tumbler is a perfect solution for someone who wants to have delicious tea while they’re running errands, on the way to the gym, or doing anything else away from home. Tuck it into your purse, briefcase, or gym bag after you’ve finished your tea and wash it out later for the next use.

Some Like it Hot, Some Like it Cold

Another way to incorporate tea into your everyday life is to make a pitcher of iced tea. With so many flavors to choose from, iced tea can be a fun way to experiment with teas you like. If you make a large pitcher at once, you can easily sip tea throughout the day or fill up your tea tumbler on your way out the door. 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.
