Whether you work from home or in an office, it is vital to take regular breaks to centre yourself, take your mind away from work, and restore a sense of balance. Not only will it make your work better, you will enjoy feeling less stressed and more grounded. In partnership with METZ Luxury Tea, here’s five steps to a mini tea meditation to boost your productivity and wellbeing.
- Choose a favourite song or meditation podcast, then put your phone on Airplane mode.
- Fill your kettle with fresh water and turn it on.
- Prepare your cup, saucer, spoon, teapot (if you have one) and METZ Tea teabag. We prefer a glass or borosilicate cup so you can watch the colours develop. If you can, find a quiet corner with a beautiful view, somewhere you won’t be disturbed by colleagues.
- Place your teabag in your cup and pour hot water over the tea. Spend three to five minutes just watching the tea brew and try to clear your mind of distractions as you do so.
- When it’s ready, remove the tea bag, sip your tea and try to identify the complex aromas and flavours of your brew. Resist the temptation to scroll through your emails!
