As a stress management coach, I do deal with stress from time to time. It is just one of those things that everyone deals with. However, I have found several methods of relieving the stress from running to journaling to drinking something hot to be quite effective. Drinking something hot, more particularly hot tea has been my major recommendation to many of those that I work with. Especially since it lets a person just sit and relax as the fluid smoothly goes down the throat and fill the entire body was comfort.
Hot tea is something that I personally enjoy drinking, especially first thing in the morning, even more so now since it is getting cooler. And one of the teas that I love to drink is the Siberian Root tea that I’ve concocted. The Siberian Root tea is a tea that will relax you and make the stress that you are harboring fade away. It is best to drink this tea in the morning, however you can drink it throughout the day. Please keep in mind to only drink up to 5 cups of this tea per day.
Siberian Root Tea
1 tablespoon Siberian ginseng root
2 teaspoons linden flowers
2 teaspoons oatstraw
1 teaspoon kava-kava root
1 teaspoon orange peel
1 teaspoon strawberry juice
1/4 teaspoon stevia herb or to taste
3 cups water
Simmer all ingredients in a covered pot for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and steep it for an additional 15 minutes. Strain and drink as needed. Just like I mentioned above, drink only up to 5 cups per day. The tea combines an adaptogen with all of the herbs and fruits, creating a calming effect. It is sweetened by the orange peel, strawberry juice, and stevia, so you will not need to add any sugar or sweetner of any kind from the store.
