Green Tea

I am starting to drink green tea once a day now. I have started this many times, before but this time, I am taking it very seriously. There are many great benefits to drinking tea. Although it is best to have green tea plain (no milk, or sugar added), to truly reap in the benefits. Some of the benefits include a decrease risk of having strokes, and various cancers because of all of the antioxidants in the tea. It can help improve brain function, and even help slow down the brain from aging.

Although a word of caution, green tea does have a lot of caffeine, so if consuming caffeine keeps you from falling asleep, be sure to have it in the morning, or early afternoon. I normally have a cup of green tea when I wake up and after my yoga.

I have started noticing that my brain is more focused on reading, and blogging. I have only started drinking green tea not too long ago.

Day Two

Let’s about engaging in healthy exercise habits. We should go out for walks, eat healthy, and continuing to move our bodies. Studies say; “Sitting is the new smoking.”, which means sitting is nearly as bad as smoking. It is important to start the day with being active.

Let’s start small, and continue to build ourselves up. Learn to spend 15, 20 minutes just focusing on moving our body, and continue to be active. If you aren’t someone who has made a lot of time in the past to exercise, it will take a bit of time to get into the habit of exercising. But there is no reason to be hard on yourself, and give up.

We just got to put in some time and energy. Which is important to start small, because you don’t want to over do it and hurt yourself in the process. It also becomes less stressful if you don’t think about the results, instead of you just do it, to better yourself, so you can reap the benefits of exercising. There are many benefits to exercising. And there are a variety of ways that count towards exercising like stretching, taking a walk, lifting weights, riding a bike, swimming, etc. Some of these benefits of exercising include a healthy of way to destress, improve cognitive thinking, increased immune system, better sleep, and so many other benefits.

Although I would recommend not exercising too close to bedtime, since it might recharge you, where you become too alert to fall asleep.

Today, I will put some effort and energy into exercising. In the process I will not compare myself to others, instead I will just focus on my abilities. I will show up every day to better myself. I will think of the benefits, instead of the pain.

Day Ten

Today, I am thankful to learn new things. I love learning new recipes, new languages and new skills. Right now I have been going through my recipe books, and I have been relearning French on a language app on my phone. They say we learn something new every day. I wholeheartedly agree with that.

I love being able to learn new things. It is such a privilege to make time and having many different resources at our fingertips that allow us to learn new things. It helps sharpen our minds. They are many healthy benefits that come with having a healthy mind. Learning new things helps keep our minds and brains in shape.

What are you most grateful for learning?
