Despite being practiced for millennia, mindfulness has been growing in popularity in mainstream culture. Modern-day stressors leave us in need of grounding; focusing on what is happening in our present moment.
Mindfulness teaches us to be present with what is — to sit with it as outside observers. It allows us to observe our thoughts, feelings, and perception without judgment, focusing on the past, or worrying about the future.
How to introduce tea into your mindfulness practice
Many believe mindfulness can only be practiced through meditation, though much of what we do every day can be done in a mindful state. For example, you can try mindful walking, breathing, and eating. You can start your mindfulness practice with a simple cup of tea. By bringing your awareness to every stage of the preparation and the drinking of tea, you can transform a daily mindless act into a conscious act of meditation.
By using all your senses consciously and with intention, you can focus on the sound of the water being poured into the cup, see the steam rising from the pot, smell the aroma of the tea blend. As you add the tea bag to the water, focus on your surroundings as your tea steeps. Feel the heat of the cup and take in the smell of every ingredient you are using. Take a moment to reflect on the taste and how it warms your body with every sip. Take a few deep breaths, and enjoy.
Regularly practicing such mindfulness rituals can improve your overall well-being. Mindfulness has many mental and physical benefits including:
- Reduced levels of stress, anxiety, depression, and PTSD
- Relieved pain and inflammation
- Better sleep
- Improved memory, emotional regulation, and cognitive abilities
- Increased productivity and focus
- Improved outlook on life and increased satisfaction
“Healing has to be consistent with life itself. If it isn’t, then it’s not healing. The components have to be from life.” - Dr. Sebi.
