Bring to the table win-win survival strategies to ensure proactive domination. At the end of the day, going forward, a new normal that has evolved from generation.
February 3, 2020


When was the last time you committed to self love?

When February rolls around, many people turn their thoughts to Valentine’s Day. The universal day of love, it is often the time when we think about giving to others and showing our love to our spouse, partner or family. But what about treating the day as an opportunity for some self-love?


Rethinking Valentine’s Day

In a time where we are bombarded with content and media, and constantly exposed to images and curated feeds, we are also often sitting in the comparison cycle, where instead of seeing ourselves as enough, we see ourselves against other media and images and think we aren’t good enough. We offer negative talk instead of positive comments, self-sabotage our efforts to make progress and sometimes verge on the edge of self-hate instead of self-love.

This Valentine’s Day, no more! Commit to Self-love. You can still offer your normal love chocolates to your partner, or best friend, but treat yourself the same as you would your best friend: show yourself some love.


Tea for Love
Tea Self Love

We may be biased, but we think one of the best ways to spend some time loving yourself and looking after yourself is with tea. A universal drink, tea has been part of rituals and routines for hundreds of years. Many cultures integrate tea into rituals that are all about love, such as a marriage or birth, but you can integrate tea into your everyday life, just to show yourself some love:

  • Start your day with a cup of tea to help wake you up and energize your morning
  • Opt for tea mid-afternoon for an energy hit instead of coffee
  • Enjoy tea with friends or family, trying some specialty versions at a tea house, instead of heading for happy hour drinks.
  • Before bed, tuck into a calming sleepy time tea to help you get a better night’s sleep.


The Benefits of Tea

Now that you have tea regularly, you may be happy to hear that it offers more than just a comforting ritual and a hot cup to hold in your hand.

Researchers have found many health benefits offered from consuming tea. Tea leaves contain the amino acid L-theanine, which in addition to offering a slow energy boost, also stimulates the release of feel-good neurotransmitters. These naturally occurring hormones in the brain, including GABA and serotonin, help improve mood and make us feel good!

The L-theanine however is not only beneficial in terms of helping with hormone release: it has also been shown to help in stress. In one study, conducted in 2016, participants consuming an L-theanine containing beverage were shown to have lower cortisol levels and reported feeling more relaxed in stressful tasks than the placebo group. Cultivating self-love also requires one to learn about one’s causes and triggers for feeling stressed and find suitable ways to eliminate these. Tea may be a great stress-taming solution!


Now We’re Feeling Good!

In addition to modulating stress, an important component of being able to feel good however comes from being able to have a restful night’s sleep. During sleep, our body rejuvenates our brain and cells and does some internal housekeeping for all our bodily systems, including our digestive, and immune. Tea can be a great way to encourage this sleep, with options such as chamomile helping to prepare the brain for a restful night!

The feel good hormones tea releases are just one of the benefits. When you drink health-teas that are made with natural, intentionally chosen ingredients, you can also benefit from the science backed health advantages these ingredients offer.

The teas that are included in the Health Tea Box, for example, offer many benefits which can improve your overall state of health and help you feel better inside and out:

  • Matcha – Rich in antioxidants and a natural source of energy, this is one of the main ingredients in our energy-boosting morning tea.
  • Fennel and Liquorice – Both of these, slightly sweet plants, offer digestive support and help relieve gut distress. With the increasing research supporting the gut-brain connection, having a healthy functioning gut is critical in helping you achieve a healthy mindset.
  • Multiflorum – If aging and memory loss are at the root of your worries when it comes to fostering self-love, this ingredient is the answer. Found in our cognitive blend, not only does it improve learning and memory, but also helps reduce cholesterol and offers cardio-vascular support
  • Cinnamon – Ah, the sweet smell of cinnamon! For many of us it conjures up visions of sweet treats and gives that little feel-good dopamine hit in the brain. In your tea, it can do the same thing, but also offers blood sugar stabilization, carminative and circulation benefits.
  • Pomegranate – You can’t feel your best and show up for self-love when you’re sick. Fruits, such as pomegranate, rich in antioxidants, are great for enhancing the immune system and helping it be able to fend off any unwanted visitors in the body.

This February, treat yourself to your favourite tea, and take a few minutes to remind yourself that you too deserve some extra love.

What if a routine was as simple as committing to a sequence of habits?

The holidays have come and gone, family has left to go back home and the Christmas lollies have all but disappeared. And with 2019 a thing of the past it’s time to look ahead now to 2020 and a brand-new decade. For many people, this time of year involves thinking about dreams and goals for the future as well as plans for changes – new job, new health plan, new exercise routine. And at the root of much of it is exactly that: a new routine.


What is a routine?


A routine is defined as a sequence of actions regularly followed. This can be as simple as the routine you follow when you brush your teeth to the routine you follow when you get to work in the morning. In each of these, you can likely think of each of the actions you perform, and in what order. These are examples of routines that have already been established . . . But what about when it comes to establishing a new routine?

In many ways, routines are synonymous with habits. The series of actions you perform as part of your routine are habitual and you know that performing them sequentially will yield a certain result.


Why should I establish a routine?

Old New Habits

The habitual component of routines is the essence: establishing a routine means you create habits. Once you have actions that are a habit, there is less brainwork and energy involved – fewer decisions, reduced cognitive demands – and hence, it becomes easier to execute. For example, you don’t think about brushing your teeth and how to do it, or put off doing it because it is hard. But at one point, you did and it was!

This simplicity of habits in a routine translates directly to other behaviours you want to adopt – exercise more, drink more water, eat less processed food. When you can establish a routine around your desired change, you will be more likely to inflict said change due to increased automation and decreased opportunities for you to deviate from the routine or fail to follow the sequential steps.


What defines a good routine?

Healthy Routine

It is clear that routines are beneficial, and in many cases, are critical in helping you adhere to desired behaviours. But what defines a good routine, and how do you establish one that you can count on to become habitual, and hence help you reach your goals?

The Reason and the Why – Start with why. Your reason for creating a new routine or changing a current one needs to be really strong and compelling. Choosing to establish a routine because a friend did or because you saw it in a magazine is likely not a good enough why to push you forward when times are difficult or you do not want to perform the actions. If for example, you are looking to establish a new routine around your diet, what is at the root of your desire to change? Get really clear on this aspect, write it down and put it in a visible place. Each time you start to fall off track with your routine, read your why and be reminded of the success you are capable of.

Laws of Habits – Since a routine is a series of habits, the basic laws of habits, as established by James Clear in his book, Atomic Habits, are important to abide by. In order for an action to become a habit, Clear recommends it follows the flour laws of habit change:

  • Make it easy
  • Make it attractive
  • Make it obvious
  • Make it satisfying

If you were trying to drink more water for example, you should make it easy and obvious to get water, by regularly having a full water bottle nearby. You should make drinking water more attractive and satisfying, by occasionally substituting it for herbal teas or by adding lemon and mint.

Sustainable and Reasonable – The purpose of establishing a routine is so that you can start to carry out actions that you will be able to do for a long time, and that will ultimately put you on the path to achieving your goal. This is not possible if you have an unsustainable component in your routine. For example, if the routine is not financially viable and you will run out of money; if the routine is not time efficient and requires too much time to complete it. If the routine is not sustainable given your living, relationship, or job status. You can think of the routine as something which you are trying to seamlessly slide into your life, with minimal disruption, and hence minimal chance that there will end up being a reason you can’t carry on.

Establishing a new routine does not have to be time consuming or difficult. With a clear understanding of what a routine entails and some basic principles to follow,  you will be launching into a new decade already experiencing success.

This January, We’re Giving you Permission to Ditch the Resolutions

Tired of the January 1st new year’s resolution that ends before it even starts? Embrace the new decade with something different: this year, ditch the resolution and try a lifestyle change instead. We’ll tell you how!

The holiday season is upon us and amidst all the Christmas songs, shopping lists and card signing, you’re starting to hear the voice in your head that says: don’t forget about your new year’s resolution! If you set a resolution every year, only to find it takes you nowhere or ends badly, it’s time to make a change.



What’s wrong with resolutions?


Holiday season

First off, if resolutions work for you, and you set them every year and find success, maybe nothing is wrong with them. But if you set them every year and don’t see success, your mind is already in that place of “resolutions don’t work for me,” and you are setting yourself up for the opposite of success. And who wants to set themselves up for failure?

Often it’s not that the resolution itself is bad, it’s the conditions (or lack thereof!) surrounding them. For example, you might say “starting January 1st I am going on a diet!” Or, “on January 1st, I am going to start exercising!” Perhaps every year you say, “I am going to start the year off by eating healthy!”

These are all with the best of intentions, but they are broad, lack the ability to be accurately measured or tracked and are too easily manipulated to suit your life versus you having to make some hard changes and restructure your lifestyle.


What should I do instead?
Resolutions

This year, instead of pegging down a resolution, ditch that mindset and focus on a lifestyle change. Focus on making sustainable changes in your habits – forming them or breaking them – that you can measure, maintain and repeat. Here are some things to consider:

  • Set a goal or a plan to change that is specific
  • Make sure you have a way to measure your progress and a gauge for the final outcome. You need to know whether you are on track and whether you have or haven’t met your goal!
  • Set up a way to stay accountable. Perhaps you check in regularly with a friend or partner, or you keep track on a calendar.
  • Make it time-specific – set a deadline for when you want to reach your goal.
  • Break it down and change one thing at a time. If you are looking to “get healthier,” first set a goal surrounding exercise, then around food choices, then around a healthy mindset. Doing these all at once will likely make you discouraged.
  • Celebrate the small wins and give yourself positive feedback along the way.

Making small tweaks in the goals you set and the way you set them can lead to a make or break outcome. Be open to taking different approaches to change this year and you will be more likely to get a different (more desirable!) result!


How do I make sustainable changes?
Change

When it comes to making changes and adopting new habits, ask yourself: “is this something I could maintain for the rest of my life?” Drastic, large scale changes, like cutting out entire food groups or going from no exercise to an hour a day, are likely unreasonable and unsustainable. Consider some of the following sustainable changes to help you get started:

  • Make a swap – Change your daily consumption of soft drinks to tea instead, or swap to have one night meatless, and power up on veggies for a day.
  • Start small – Incorporate exercise in small amounts to begin, such as 15 minutes of walking three times per week.
  • Make it attractive – If you are trying to do more of something, make it an attractive thing to do! For example, if you want to drink more water, add lemon to it, or drink it in the form of iced tea. If you want to exercise more, choose an activity you enjoy or people you enjoy being with.
  • Don’t forget your brain – Diet and exercise are common targets for change, but it might start in your brain! Giving yourself a cognitive boostcan go a long way in helping you concentrate better, stay focused and ultimately, more effectively achieve your other goals
  • More sleep, less stress – Part of cognitive health is getting enough sleep and cutting down on stress. Start by taking your phone out of the bedroom at night and practicing some deep breathing exercises to destress your mind and body.

Sail into a new decade setting yourself up for success, not failure. Set aside the annual resolution tradition that you do because you “should,” and instead get really specific on some measurable, actionable goals you can tackle to create sustainable lifestyle change. Bring on 2020!

Is that true?

With the increase in popularity of tea in the last few years, there has also been an increase of tea options hit the market. Some promise to be the healthiest beverage you consume, others to help your liver and others still to be the answer to your slim-down desires. But which of these claims are actually true and which is a myth? We’re here to tell you all about it!



Myth 1: Tea will dehydrate me
Tea will dehydrate me

Truth: You may have heard that coffee is a diuretic, and therefore, dehydrating for the body. This is true. Tea however, does not necessarily fall under the same category.

If you are consuming a tea made with natural ingredients that contains no caffeine, tea can actually be hydrating! Steeped in water, you can think of tea as simply flavoured water – just like you would add lemon or fresh mint to your iced water. In fact, if you struggle to drink enough water every day, tea can be the perfect way to help you drink increased amounts of water and reach your daily required intake.

Water is essential in our body for adequate digestion, brain function, helping improve blood flow and energy and for aiding the immune system in optimized function. Without enough, you may find yourself with constipation, headaches, feeling sluggish or unable to think well. Likewise, a simple change, like drinking an additional 500mL of water per day, will help you sleep better, be more alert, have more energy and enhance your digestion.


Myth 2: Tea will help me lose weight

Truth: There are a lot of teas advertising to help you “lose weight” or “slim down,” or claiming to contain the magic ingredient that will help you shed those last few pounds. Its important to understand the nuances of these statements however and recognize that tea is not a weight loss miracle drug.

It is true that tea can contain certain ingredients – such as senna – that will promote digestive movement and reduce fluid retention, but in essence, these teas are allowing your body to have an express line to emptying waste, not taking pounds off your waist.

If you are looking to lose weight, the best thing to do is adopt a healthy sustainable lifestyle, consuming a high volume of fruits and vegetables, and lots of complex carbohydrates, as well as regular exercise. In addition, drinking water is critical, and this is where tea can come in. as mentioned above, in addition to plain water, you can drink herbal and caffeine free tea to help meet your daily water requirements. One idea is to have 500mL of water (sound familiar?) every time you have a tea. This doubles your water intake, while still letting you have some of it as the delicious tasting tea!



Myth 3: Tea doesn’t taste very good
Health Tea Box Lemon

Truth: If the first thought you have when it comes to tea is the dark coloured black stuff your grandma used to drink, that you drowned in sugar, good news: there is more than one type of tea. Over the last several years, the types of teas, their flavour, nutrient profile and ingredients have shifted dramatically, and tea can now not only steer away from tasting bad, but actually be incredibly delicious!

Ingredients such as licorice, ginger, naturally dried fruit, antioxidant rich berriesand cinnamon are all examples of ingredients which not only add incredible flavour to tea, but which also have impressive health properties. Ginger and licorice or example are great for improving digestion and reducing stomach distress, not to mention, licorice tastes sweet, without having any sugar. Likewise, cinnamon and fruit add a natural sweetness, while cinnamon has also been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels.

Many berries, such as goji berries, blueberries, juniper berries and strawberries make regular appearances in tea. When immersed in hot water, they allow extraction of magnificent colours, lending the beautiful purples, reds and burgundies to teas. More than just for looks however, berries are a potent source of antioxidants, compounds that help fight free radicals in the body and work to optimize cell function.

Collectively, with the right combination of ingredients, not only can tea taste good, but it can be healthy for you too! Just hold off on the sugar and fill it with natural sweetening ingredients.


Myth 4: Detox teas are healthier than other teas

Truth: In simple terms, not necessarily. Words like “detox,” “clean,” and “slimming,” are a common sight on tea boxes. And you aren’t alone if you assume that those teas are the healthiest option and the one to go for if you are looking to tea to offer you health guidance. In reality though, it’s all about what’s in the tea that determines how healthy it is.

In many cases other teas without the fancy detox label have the same or similar ingredients – and often a lower price tag! Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and a common ingredient when it comes to detoxifying due to its ability to help reduce inflammation within the body. Hibiscus is a potent source of antioxidants, an essential compound to have circulating through the body when it comes to reducing potential cancer-causing oxidative compounds.

Not only are some of these ingredients similar, but teas without the attention-grabbing detox label, might in fact have ingredients that are even morenutritionally advantageous. Rhodiola and ginseng for example, are adaptogenic plants that help the body adapt to stress, and which also improve cognitive function. They are just two examples of the many, nutritionally opportune ingredients included in our teas.

And that’s why we want you to have some! We’re not making false promises or filling them with unsavoury ingredients. just real tea, real ingredients and the science behind them to show that they can effectively do what we say they can do.

Why it’s time to go outside!

If the winter weather had you stuck indoors, huddled under a blanket (with a cup of hot tea!), don’t worry – you weren’t alone. But with the warmer weather now peaking in, it’s time to take advantage of the sun, light and all the fresh air, as you reap the benefits of being outside!
Spring cup of tea

The warm days that have been teasing us off and on these past few weeks are the perfect glimpse into the new spring season that is upon us. More than that though, they are the ideal time to be outside. Winter doesn’t usually lend itself to being outdoors, and in the process of spending all that time inside, we lose the natural benefits of the sun, fresh air, interaction with plants and the natural endorphin release that comes from breathing it all in and being in nature. It’s time to put the winter blues aside and step outside into spring.



Benefits of Being Outdoors

Spring Outdoors Bike

Aside from the bright skies and pretty flowers, you’ll be happy to know there are a few additional reasons why the great outdoors is so great:

  • Japanese researchers have shown that “stressful states can be relieved by forest therapy.” The Japanese regularly walk forest trails and researchers are finding evidence to support that it offers decreases in cortisol, sympathetic nerve activity, and blood pressure.
  • Natural settings reduce directed-attention fatigue, an issue caused by the brain having to constantly manage competing stimuli
  • Recent research looked at the connection between soil and the gut microbiome, concluding that the soil biodiversity we are exposed to is decreasing and our rate of microbiome related lifestyle diseases is increasing
  • Natural light exposure is required for adequate vitamin D, and also helps regulate your sleep schedule. The brain is cued by light changes for when to produce melatonin and elicit sleep.

Camping herbal Tea

Outdoor Activities.

Here’s the good news: getting the benefits of going outside doesn’t require you to spend hours on a hike or commit to devoting Saturday to Mother Nature:  just 30 minutes of time outdoors can be enough to give you incredible physical and mental benefits. If you’re not sure what to do or where to start however, here are some outdoor activity ideas which are perfect for spring:

  • Go for a walk – down the street, on a local trail, around your backyard. It doesn’t have to be long or to a destination, just incorporating movement is enough!
  • Forage flowers – The next time you drive by a spot in nature that has nice flowers, stop and pick a few! Go for a walk around the area and see if you can forage a nature-made bouquet for your home. Not only will you get the benefits of being outdoors, but you will also be able to go home and bring the outdoors in!
  • Move the Meet – Whether it is a meeting with colleagues or a meet-up with friends, take it outside. For a work meeting, opt to sit outside for coffee instead of in, or suggest a walking meeting. If you are meeting up with friends, think of an outdoor activity, such as a walk along the beach, frisbee in the park, or a walk through the local gardens.
  • Choose Outside – Sometimes getting outside is as simple as choosing to do so. Choose to walk to places when you can; get up from your desk at work and go for a walk outdoors; shop at outdoor farmer’s markets instead of the store; exercise outside instead of at the gym or in your garage.

Use the change in season to change the way you think about the outdoors – a place to be in and visit, not a place to ignore or walk away from. Plus, there are so many great additional benefits to getting outside, that really, you have nothing to lose!


Health Tea Box - Herbs Planter Box

Plants for Purpose.

More than just soaking up the sunshine and getting a dose of those feel-good hormones though, being outside surrounded by plants lets you get an appreciation for the large diversity of plants found growing in abundance in our own backyard. Better yet, did you know that a lot of these plants are edible and have impressive health benefits? In fact, many of them could be considered nature’s superfoods given their nutrient profile. And this is a big reason behind why they are included in some of the teas we offer as part of the Health Tea Box:

  • Hibiscus – While beautiful in nature, hibiscus is that much better in the body: it helps reduce  blood pressure. Whether you suffer from hypertension or stress, the hypotensive properties of hibiscus are the perfect solution. Combined with its antioxidant benefits, it’s a clear winner and found in several of our teas.
  • Rose Petals – Not only are roses beautiful to look at in nature but the petals adds a refined sweetness to desserts and tea, while also providing anti-inflammatory benefits. The red blood-like colour of roses is also symbolic of their ability to act as a blood tonic.
  • Lemon Balm – An Australian native plant, lemon balm adds a subtle lemon flavour to teas and you can use it in your cooking in the same way. In addition, it is rich in antioxidants and can act as a sedative, aiding in sleep and de-stressing.
  • Fennel – A pleasant smell and a delicious flavour, this liquorice like plant has anti-inflammatory effects and is a great digestive aid. Drink the digestive tea after a meal or when you are feeling bloated, nauseas or suffering from unwanted gut distress.
  • Peppermint – Peppermint tea is soothing and comforting, and this is not an accident. Peppermint is great for helping elicit calmness and reduce tension, as well as is a beneficial digestive aid, helping in both chronic and acute gut symptoms.

There are lots of benefits from getting outside, but the only way to reap them is to try it yourself. What are you waiting for? Get outdoors!

What are Wellness Teas and why should you try them


Herbal medicine has been used for over 60,000 years and still manages to produce results today. Although we have more advanced pharmaceuticals to help with complex issues, and modern medicine has advanced human society as a whole, we cannot deny this one thing: the old tricks are the best tricks. If nothing else, falling back on some herbal or wellness teas doesn’t hurt so long as you know what the ingredients are for and any possible side-effects if they aren’t consumed as prescribed. In tea form, though, most dosages of the herbs are totally harmless.


Enjoy a cup of wellness tea

What Are Wellness and Herbal Teas?

So, what exactly are wellness and herbal teas? Truthfully, both teas are pretty much the same, however there are some slight differences.

An herbal tea is a beverage infused with spices and herbs in hot water, sometimes including other plant materials like tree bark. The essessences from these materials mix with the water to promote health in many different ways, depending on the ingredient. Therefore, if you’re dealing with high blood pressure, a gruesome cold, digestive issues, or loss of energy, then herbal teas might do the trick for you.

A wellness tea, on the other hand, is the same as an herbal tea except it focuses more on daily health. Wellness teas are perfect to drink for any time, some of them suggesting that you drink them at different times of the day to be at peak performance. For instance, if you have an upcoming work presentation or preparing for an exam, then gingko might be the perfect tea for improved brain function. Meanwhile, teas like chamomile, lemon balm, and passion fruit are all sedatives that can help you relax at night.


Herbal Teas

Benefits of Wellness Teas

The main benefit of any wellness tea is to promote better health even when you aren’t sick. You want to get the whole body in harmony to reinforce preventative measures before you get sick. Herbal teas aren’t a cure-all and certainly can’t replace prescription drugs but they can help when used correctly and regularly. Whatever you’re problem is, there’s a tea for that.

Maybe you’re already health conscious enough to have explored nutritious drinks or medicinal elixirs. The usual problem with these are their taste. Wellness teas don’t just work better than most of their counterparts but are also delicious. If you don’t like something in your tea, there are millions of combinations to find something that you’ll enjoy. There are even several services that allow you to build your own tea blends from scratch. The thing is, if you enjoy what you’re doing, then you’re likely to keep doing it. This is the key to developing healthy habits.


Prevention is Better than Cure

All-In-One Options

A prime example of the herbal teas and the wellness system is the Health Tea Box. This box is formulated to provide you with five different teas made with over 30 spices and herbs. Each of the five blends is created specifically for different times of the day to combat different needs. Every blend has a specific purpose and they all work together to help you get through almost anything.

The morning blend, which is made with white tea, is designed to give energy and boost physical performance. The usual tea for the day is meant to assist with cognitive memory with ginkgo, allowing you to maintain attention and improve learning and memory. We all could use a little of that!

The afternoon blend, made with turmeric, is to promote digestive health. They say every illness can somehow be attributed to your gut health, so this tea is great for encouraging positive digestive function.

Tired of counting sheep at night to get your mind to stop racing? The night blend, with chamomile, is relaxing and tension reducing to help you sleep and manage stress.

Lastly, we have an all day blend made with licorice to help boost the antibacterial and antiviral properties you already have.

Plenty of wellness teas can be found at a local supermarket and many companies sell sampler boxes online to promote different aspects of health. The Health Tea Box, though, is a comprehensive, proven system to treat specific problems most people encounter throughout their daily life. For people looking to get into wellness teas and are unsure where to start, this is an excellent system to start out with.


Health Tea Box

Finding What You Need

Whether you’re trying to find a specific tea to combat a condition or just looking around for something you like, the best thing you can do is to just get started. Different ingredients can do different things to the body in surprisingly strong ways. Some can even pose a health risk, especially during pregnancy, so doing a little research and treating herbal teas like you would any medication is a great place to begin. From there, just go with what tastes good to you and enjoy your cup of tea.
