Relax Already: Make a Cup of Tea

Stress is a common phenomenon of a hectic workday, when everything speeds up to an unmanageable pace. To help slow things down and relax a bit, brew a cup of tea. This simple action can create profound results. Unlike chugging an ice-cold drink, sipping something hot takes time and a bit of patience. A cup of herbal tea like chamomile, known for its relaxing qualities, can provide a moment of calm and help you recharge so you have energy to tackle the rest of your day.

Love tea. I think I drink 4 cups a day. Since it's been so humid/hot I vary between hot and iced.

Several types of tea are provided in our kitchens at work so I drink green tea all day long.

My favorite thing is to sip a cup of hot cinnamon-apple tea during my morning break at work. It warms me up (our lab is constantly freezing) and helps me focus for the rest of the day.

Yes! Nothing better than a nice steaming cup of jasmine green to slow things down a bit during a busy day!

I love tea and drink alot of it, either cold or hot, but mostly hot. And there is certainly a calming affect about having a cup of tea when you are stressed out. It certainly helps me.

I would love to, and as an adult I've grown to like tea more and more. (I still hate it iced though) But in the summer heat right now, it's hard to drink a hot drink!
