unwind week: have a cup of tea

June 18, 2012


As I mentioned last week, we are in the middle of a very busy season at the office. So I decided that this week is dedicated to making it through the busy times without tearing your hair out.
Now as we all know, busy seasons can often mean long hours of work that extend well beyond the typical eight hour workday. This may not leave too much time for unwinding before you are ready to crash. But, before you hit the pillow, consider a cup of hot tea and a little light reading. A soothing cup of hot chamomile tea is perfect for calming the nerves and a good book will be a welcome distraction from the buzz of, “to-do’s” swirling around in your head. And if work related thoughts do happen to start drifting in while you’re reading, I’ve found that a notebook on the nightstand works great for quickly jotting down notes and getting back to relaxing.
After about thirty minutes, you’ll be warmed, calmed, and ready for a good night’s rest and a fresh start in the morning.

      I actually don’t own that exact mug. (Although I do own two of the matching bowls). 🙂
