It’s the start of a brand New Year! For me, the beginning of January is always a good time to decide what I want to improve on in the first quarter of the New Year. This includes both personal and professional things. I find that plugging into a shorter time frame is more effective and offers me a much better chance at success.
I’m sure you can all relate to the disappointment we feel when we fall short of those pesky “resolutions.” Even with the best of intentions, most things don’t survive past January, and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in this. So, I’ve found that making resolutions isn’t the best way for me to go about things.
My friend and mentor Christy Wright has a great solution. She says to look at “What’s Right,” “What’s Wrong,” “What’s Missing,” and “What’s Confusing?” We can do this in all areas of our lives and at any time, making it so powerful.
My “What’s Wrong” to be worked on in January and the first quarter is to get back into my exercise routine and drink more Green Tea. I severely lapsed with my physical fitness routines, which I love to do. I know many of you raised your eyebrows at that. But I always feel better mentally and physically after completing a workout. It helps with stress reduction too.
I also want to drink more Green Tea. I drink a lot of tea varieties (I know you’re thinking, duh, she owns a tea store), but I want to be intentional in this area.
One of my favorite green teas is the Organic Fit Body Green Tea. This metabolism-boosting tea combines organic green tea, organic yerba mate, organic rooibos, organic lemongrass, organic matcha, and lemon myrtle for a thirst-quenching drink. It’s a delicious, smooth, refreshing drink bursting with lemon flavor. As a bonus, it has zero calories. So for those who want to drop a few holiday pounds, this is a great choice to add to your new lifestyle. It’s also a great, healthy alternative to ready-to-drink bottled teas.
Organic Fit Body Green Tea is good hot first thing in the morning to get you moving, but also to sip on all day. I also enjoy making a cold brew of this tea and having it ready to go in my fridge whenever I want something cold to drink. I love the versatility that this tea tastes great, either hot or cold. One note: this tea does have a smidge more caffeine, so for those of you who’re sensitive to caffeine, you may want to enjoy this tea earlier in the day.
And on that note, I’m lacing up my tennis shoes, grabbing Phoebe, and we’re off for our morning 3-4 mile walk.
