28 Oct Morning Ritual with Tisanes
Mornings are a sacred time where we get to decide how we want to live in this moment and establish how we want to carry out the rest of our day. Your morning ritual is a new beginning to create, manifest, and nurture.
Many of us have our own established routines, however there may be simple morning rituals you can do to further optimize your day:
Upon rising—before you get out of bed and scroll through your phone—bring awareness to the breath and body. Notice how you feel in this moment, and breathe gently into the entire body cavity. While in this mindful state bring your hands to your heart and think of your intention for the day.
Move out of bed with ease, brush your teeth and scrape your tongue and use the restroom to release. Then, make a warm pot of nurturing herbal tisanes. Caffeine in coffee, black and green tea can be overpowering as your first drink of the day, so instead start with our Brain Herbal Tea or Adapt Herbal Tea. Adapt Herbal Tea will help bring you a natural state of calm, while Brain Herbal Tea will allow you to focus. Both tisanes will assist in hydrating you first thing and will flush out any toxins that were stagnant while you slept.
After making your cup of tisane, invite movement into your morning routine through a yoga, dance, taking a walk, or any movement that makes your body feel refreshed. Afterward, come into a comfortable seated position and witness a state of stillness as you meditate on the breath, mantra, or intention for 5-30 minutes.
Nourish your body with a wholesome breakfast or continue to fast. You can drink more tisanes or have your first cup of caffeine (coffee, black/green tea, or our Longevity Herbal Tea) and end your morning ritual by cultivating gratitude.
When we rise gently, are intentional, invite gentle movement, and meditate in the morning, we create a synergy within the body and mind. With the addition of hydrating and nourishing warm tisanes, you will be able to sustain your energy, focus and calmness throughout the day ahead.
