I’m SO thankful for my life, my body,
my mind, and my soul which have the power to defeat my fears,
overcome my anxiety,
and erase my doubts.
Today I choose kindness and love
over stress and worry.
With every pot I make, with every sip I take, with every breath and every thought,
I welcome a peaceful, prosperous,
and gentle life. 
I'm awake, I’m living, I’m learning, I’m growing and I'm grateful for the opportunities that come my way each day. 
I’m present in this moment and I’ll continue to be present throughout each day.​
I am ready!

Tea Therapy

Affirmations are mantras, quotes, or phrases (either short or long) that you’ll either say, read or think to put yourself and your mind in a good and positive emotional state. One of the key meanings of the noun ‘affirmation’ is encouragement or emotional support. We ourselves can put our mind in a great place, encouraging the mind to be kind with itself, provide the support needed, and hopefully remove any negatives that might appear in your thoughts during the rest of the day. Affirmations are a great way to focus on your optimistic views, take away stress, pessimism and gloom, and in a way prepare your body in order to be ready to tackle everything that the day can bring to you both mentally and physically. A strong body starts with a strong mind.

 

Starting the day in the right state of mind will tremendously improve your chances of having a happy and successful day, and will leave you less prone to any outside negativity or hostility. We can’t control the outside world but we can control the way we respond to it, and we can definitely prepare our mind to be at its strongest every morning by just taking a few minutes for ourselves.

1. The Ritual of Tea
Tea drinking is more than just a beverage; it's a ritual that invites us to slow down and savour the present moment. Embrace the process of brewing, watching as the water embraces the tea leaves and their essence unfurls. As you pour, notice the steam rising, carrying with it a promise of serenity. Let each sip be a mindful experience, engaging your senses fully and appreciating the subtle nuances of taste and texture.

2. Creating Affirmation Time
Tea presents an ideal opportunity to create a personal space for reflection and self-care. Before you take your first sip, set aside a few moments for affirmations. These positive statements, repeated silently or aloud, can help you cultivate a mindset of self-love, gratitude, and inner peace. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and repeat these affirmations as you let the tea's warmth envelop you.

3. Mindful Sips
Tea and mindfulness go hand in hand. With each sip, focus your attention on the sensations unfolding within you. Notice the flavors dancing on your palate, the soothing warmth seeping through your body, and the gentle rhythm of your breath. Allow any worries or distractions to melt away as you anchor yourself in the present moment. Embrace the stillness and let the tea be a catalyst for a peaceful state of mind.

4. Nourishing Body and Soul
Tea is not only a delightful beverage but also a source of wellness. As you sip your tea, acknowledge the nourishment it provides to your body and soul. Let the antioxidants and natural properties of the tea infuse your being, revitalising you from the inside out. Appreciate the care and intention that went into cultivating and preparing the tea, recognising that you, too, deserve care and nourishment.

5. Gratitude and Reflection
Tea can be a gateway to gratitude and reflection. As you enjoy your cup, contemplate the blessings and joys in your life. Express gratitude for the simple pleasures, the relationships that uplift you, and the moments of respite that tea provides. Allow your mind to wander, giving space to introspection and self-discovery. Tea becomes a gentle companion on this journey of self-reflection.

In a world filled with noise and constant busyness, taking time for yourself and savouring a cup of tea can be a precious act of self-love. By infusing your tea-drinking experience with affirmations, mindfulness, and gratitude, you create a sacred space to rejuvenate and affirm your worth. So the next time you brew a cup of tea, remember to embrace the beauty of the moment, sip mindfully, and let your affirmations uplift your spirit. Cheers to the joy and serenity that tea and affirmations can bring to your life!
