Boost Productivity With Tea
“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”
-By William Gladstone
Do you want to boost employee productivity? I'm always impressed by how dedicated and "on it" everyone is at The Tea Shelf. Yes, they are all extraordinary people – talented, intelligent, team-oriented, and passionate – but they also drink tea all day! I've begun to wonder if this has anything to do with their level of health and fitness, as well as their productivity.
It's amazing how much a small cup of tea can help you in the morning! I frequently drink a cup of Darjeelings in the morning and it makes a significant difference in my productivity. Though caffeine is the main factor that wakes me up and helps me focus, tea has other benefits that can help you be more productive.
Tea's antioxidants benefit you in a variety of ways. To begin, antioxidants can aid in the maintenance of a healthy immune system. This means you're less likely to get sick in the morning. I don't know about you, but when I'm sick, I get absolutely nothing done. Drinking a large cup of tea in the morning can help you avoid catching a cold or flu. Antioxidants are also thought to help prevent memory loss and promote healthy brain cells. Healthy brain cells and a better memory will assist you in focusing and thinking clearly in the morning, which is critical when you have a lot of work to do.
Darjeeling tea contains enough caffeine to boost your metabolism and wake you up in the morning. Green and Darjeeling teas contain less caffeine than coffee, so you will be awake but not jittery. It can be difficult to concentrate when you're shaky, so if coffee makes you shaky, try a cup of tea instead.
Darjeeling tea, believe it or not, is said to have antidepressant properties. I'm not sure if it's scientifically proven, but studies appear to indicate that tea can help with depression. Green tea consumption was linked to a lower prevalence of depressive symptoms, according to Japanese researchers.” Symptoms of depression can seriously impair your productivity during the day. You might feel sluggish and tired, with no desire to do anything. Tea may be a healthy way to boost your energy and improve your mood in the morning.
Dehydration can cause headaches, dizziness, and sleepiness, all of which can seriously impair your productivity. Nobody wants to go to work when they have a headache. Drinking a few cups of tea per day can help you stay hydrated and energetic throughout the day.
Aches and pains in the stomach throughout the day can also impair productivity. When one's stomach is upset, no one wants to sit down and work. Certain teas can help soothe and calm your stomach, allowing you to return to work! Some of the best calming teas are:
-Peppermint Tea: can help to relax stomach muscles.
-Chamomile Tea: can help to reduce stomach contractions.
-Ginger Tea: This tea contains volatile oils and phenol compounds that can help with digestion.
So, what are you waiting for? Make a healthy cup of tea at work today, invite a few colleagues to share a cup, and find the perfect way to relax and unwind for a few minutes so you can return to your desk revitalized enough to rediscover your passion for work!
