Looking for a simple way to slow down and relax? As a mama, a wife, and an entrepreneur, my schedule can get busy! But I’ve been working hard on simplifying things and making time to relax. If you’re looking for an easy way to slow down and relax, this might just be the perfect inspiration for you!
Know Your Limits
I’ll be the first to tell you that we’ve been juggling a whole lot over here – not that I would change it for the world! But it’s been a little wild. One of the things I absolutely love about being a mama is really taking value in knowing my limits and hustling to GET. THINGS. DONE! Who else can relate?! Truly, the more I have on my plate, the more I try to simplify things and gain routines and rhythms that feel balanced, which ultimately leads to a calmer, more productive Melissa! ;)
Simplify Your Life
Raise your hand if you have ordered your groceries online before?! I am a little new to the club, but I have been ALL about it as of 2019! This is definitely one of the ways I’ve made my routines simpler! So many of you may already know this, but Walmart offers grocery orders online. The process is so SO simple and you can order so many things that come lightning fast. My most recent order came in JUST 2 days, easy peasy! Plus, you’re able to get everything you’re looking for online that you would normally buy in the store.
How to Make Iced Tea
Lately I’ve been squeezing in a little extra time for myself as I am trying to make a better effort to slow down. I’ve been feeling more frazzled lately than I have in a long time, so I’m really staying on top of going at a slower pace. And as we’ve been heading into the warmer weather, making a glass of iced tea has seriously become one of my favorite things to do to slow down and relax. One of my latest favorite teas is the TAZO Wild Sweet Orange. If you haven’t tried it yet – add it to your list ASAP. It’s so good and so refreshing! I really like it because it has such a sweet but subtle flavor – perfect for summer! I grab one of my favorite go-to cups and just add some ice cubes, a little honey, and a straw, and it’s the perfect pick-me-up after a long day. You have to try this some time!
Make Time To Relax
If you’re a busy mom like me and find that you’re putting yourself on the back burner too – creating some sort of a relaxing or fun routine for yourself will be a game changer. Trust me! When you take care of yourself, you can take better care of everyone else. Even if it’s just a few moments to enjoy your favorite tea in an inspirational mug or cute cup, it’ll make a world of difference!
Benefits of Tea
There are so many benefits to drinking tea. It’s seriously amazing! Did you know there are a number of ways to incorporate tea into your life, whether it’s for well-being, relaxation, a little pick-me-up, or even just as a refreshment? Whether it’s utilizing certain herbal teas with calming and relaxing benefits or teas with a little extra well-being, there’s a tea to fit everyone’s lifestyle and schedule. And just taking that extra moment to relax and reflect can make you so much more productive moving forward.
How to Drink Tea
If you’re new to tea, or stuck on which types of tea to try, Walmart has put together a fun tool to help. Their online Tea Shop has such a wide selection and truly has a tea for every occasion. Plus, their new Tea Quiz can help too! By answering just four fun questions, you can find out your own Personali-tea! ;) I’ve been obsessed with this Tazo Wild Sweet Orange Tea lately, but there are other great brands available through the Tea Shop at Walmart.com like Lipton and Pukka too. And after taking the quiz, I realize there are so many other fun ways to add tea into my day! There are so many ways it can help to provide a pick-me-up throughout the day or the perfect relaxing end to the day once you’ve checked off the to-do list. I may start a new routine of drinking it in the morning to get the day going as well. Worth a try!
I’d love to hear in the comments what routines you enjoy or you’re planning to add to your daily grind! You deserve to make time for your moment!
