Lots of people enjoy herbal teas. As well as increasing your water intake herbal teas can have a medicinal effect due to the herbs and can make effective remedies. There are some great brands out there making lovely blends (@pukkaherbs being a firm favourite of mine) but making your own simple fresh herbal teas is also so easy.
My new morning routine is a cup of lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) which we grow outside the backdoor in a little pot. It grows ferociously so dead easy, and requires no green fingers! Lemon balm is a lovely herb (member of the mint family) which is often used to reduce stress, anxiety and boost cognitive function. It has anti viral properties so sometimes used in topically in balms for cold sores. It’s often used as a digestive tonic or to help sleep but I find a cup in the morning extremely calming and sets me up for the day. I would certainly recommend this to most people to replace one of their daily cups of caffeine especially if you’re feeling stressed or anxious (which caffeine can exacerbate). Enjoy the calm ☕️
