Green is not only delicious but often referred to as the miracle drink! This beverage has been apart of Asian culture since recorded history! And for good reason! This time of year can be very stressful, both at work and at home and a good way to stay hydrated and relaxed is a nice cup of hot green tea.
- Relieves Stress: Running around looking for the right gifts can be VERY stressful. Taking time for yourself to sit down and relax with a nice hot cup of green tea can be very relaxing. Too much caffeine can cause anxiety, stress and even insomnia, so try to switch that coffee for green tea! Green tea not only has half the amount of caffeine as coffee does, but its natural flavor has been said to help people relax.
- Increase Weight Loss: Let’s face it, the holiday season is the worst time of the year for maintaining a proper diet. Candy, chocolate, desserts, starchy foods are everywhere. Drinking green tea daily can actually suppress your appetite and speed up your metabolism. Which in turn can save you 100’s of unnecessary calories during this season.
- Prevents Sickness: Holiday shopping is crowded with people. Line ups at every store can leave you exposed to many viruses and colds. Cold weather and crowded areas can be a lot for your immune system to handle. Luckily green tea has antiviral properties that strengthen your immune system! So start your day off with a large cup of green tea and stay healthy this holiday season!
