This will quickly become your new favorite way to ~unwind~


Meditation isn't the only way to reduce stress and become more mindful in your daily life. Julie Montagu, The Flexi Foodie, shares one of her favorite ways to unwind and be more present: a mindful tea-drinking ritual. Immersing yourself in a cup of flavorful tea is a pleasant and practical way to remind yourself to be conscious in the now-without having to sit still with your eyes closed for 30 minutes. It will remind you to stop worrying about the past or feeling anxious about the future. In the video below, Julie explains how she practices mindful tea drinking and shares her fave happy tea tonic recipe.

Happy Tea Tonic Recipe

Makes: 2 servings

Total time: 10 minutes


  • 1 ginger tea bag
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick or a pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 orange slice

  • Optional dash of cayenne pepper


  1. Using either a small teapot or an extra-large mug, place the ginger tea bag or fresh ginger inside.
  2. Pour boiling water into the mug or teapot and let it steep for 5 minutes. Give the tea bag a good squeeze and then remove it.
