AGE 30 — Consultant

6:00 am

Greet the Morning

I brew a cup Matcha first thing in the morning, before one of my mindfulness practices: yoga, meditation or journaling.

8:30 am

Revel in Reflection

While drinking, I write in my gratitude journal. This practice helps me be mindful and present in each moment.

5:30 pm

Sip Away Stress

If it’s a busy day, I’ll take Japanese green tea on-the-go for a natural energy boost.

9:00 am

Engage Your Senses

I set my water to boil right after waking up. While the Japanese green tea brews, I breathe in the smell: my first step to feeling fully awake.

11:00 am

Embrace the Day

Drinking Sencha awakens my mind gradually so I can start the morning clear-headed.

10:00 pm

Bliss Out at Bedtime

I drink another cup at night, which helps me slow down and find calm before bed.

Create Your Zen

I prepare Gyokuro before meditation, which I practice to more clearly observe and internalize the world around me.

11:00 am

Infuse Mindfulness

I prefer my tea strong, so I let it continue to steep while I drink it.

10:00 pm

Breathe into This Moment

Japanese green tea warms me as I perform the initial breathing techniques of my meditation practice, making me feel settled and grounded.
