Welcome to my tea blog! Here, have a cup of tea :).

In this blog, I will be drinking a lot of tea, but I am willing to share! I also will talk about my quest to create a comtemplative tea lifestyle and slow things down so that I can enjoy my life more, and about how drinking tea brings peace to my day.

It, truly, is the pause that refreshes, and I am asking myself how I can create more of that and less of the crazy-buzy, hurry-to-get-to-the-next-thing energy that all too often adds pressure and tension to my day.

Meditation Challenge: Day 10 ~ Be Gentle with Yourself

A Reminder to Be Gentle...

"The goal of the meditation is not to eliminate thoughts. It’s to disconnect from activity while you connect to stillness and silence. So as you continue with your meditation practice – and with your life – be easy on yourself. Who’s your biggest critic? Most likely it’s you. Cut yourself some slack today from your harshest critic. Take a deep breath in, feel the universe’s abundance . . . and let it flow throughout your day." ~~Chopra Center

My Meditation Experience

Well, I did not do what I had planned, which was to get up and meditate before everything else. But I did do everything mindfully and without rushing, so it all felt okay. I felt quite relaxed even before I drank my first sip of chamomile tea, well before the meditation began.

The meditation, itself, was wonderful, as usual. I feel so happy about creating this meditation ritual!
