Green tea can be an amazing addition to your life. Not only can it help you lose weight effortlessly, but it can also add many health benefits.
Best Green Tea Tip #2: Start Your “Tea Life”
It’s simple. All you need to do is:
- Select the best green tea.
- Have the best routine to drink it.
We’ll talk about how to select the right type of green tea in details later. For now, I’ll give you four ideas on how to make drinking tea as an easy, natural part of your life.
1. Wake your body up with a sip of green tea.
This is what I do every morning. I get up, boil water and throw some tea leaves into the cup. With an electric water boiler conveniently sitting on my countertop, it only takes two to three minutes for hot water to be ready. Then, I pour it into the cup, steep the tea with it for a bit, and brush my teeth. Once I’m done, I take a long sip of the tea, feel the first bit of warmth of the day, then make breakfast, and finish the remaining tea while eating.
2. Replace coffee with tea.
I know some people would hesitate to do this. If it doesn’t fit your lifestyle (say, having a morning coffee together with your significant other is an important part of your relationship), don’t do it, and you can move onto the next idea.
If you don’t mind making the switch, it is worth it. While tea and coffee both have caffeine in them, we found that people who drink three cups of tea a day have a 37% lower risk of depression than those who don’t.
Meanwhile, we also found that tea leaves (Camellia Sinensis) contain L-Theanine – an amino acid that helps the brain simultaneously relax and concentrate.
You see the difference here? Tea is a balm for the troubled souls, unlike coffee which makes your nerves jangle all day.
