After doing our workouts all week, today is our day to rest fully, curl up, and enjoy some cozy time. Learning how to really rest can be the ticket to being a super productive worker. Resting has never been my “cup of tea” so to speak, but I am learning. One thing I have learned is how to slow down and enjoy an actual cup of tea. When I was in India, the morning cup of tea was very precious. When you entered anyone’s home, you were always offered a cup of tea. The tea was often weak so you could drink more than one cup. Normally I jump right up and hit the ground running, trying to drink my coffee while I busy doing all kinds of other things. This quiet, still, truly tasting and taking in of the tea was a different experience. Now I try, to slow down and savor the taste, the heat, & the joy of the drink. It is wild how much more pleasure a normal occurrence can be if you just pay attention. So create a cozy space just for you today and relish in it fully! This beautiful rainbow of leaves will be gone soon. Make time to take in their splendor, perhaps as you savor a lovely cup of tea.
