Tea: A Simple Solution to Modern Life’s Modern Ills

Tea

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant;
if we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
– Anne Bradstreet.

 

The past few decades have shown how the health of the working professionals has continually been deteriorating because of a fast lifestyle. For temporary relief or pleasure, they cling to coffee, beer, alcohol, cigarettes, meat, and fast food. All this works fine in the life cycle of human being, as long as it doesn’t go overboard. Now, the problem arises when you cling only to the pillars mentioned above of the fast, modern lifestyle. These habits are the primary reasons for lifestyle discomforts, such as stress, hypertension, heart disease, insomnia, addictions, and obesity. The wrong chords of working professionals ring when they massively indulge in work, bad lifestyle habits, and escapes using temporary means. If you are in these circumstances, your equation needs a hand. The answer is tea.

 

The first look

If we give the tea a significant throwback, you will be bewildered how royal it was. It brought about a sense of royalty and luxury to people. Before the 1700s, this beverage was precious. It was considered such a great luxury item that it had to be smuggled between countries and parties in various parts of the world. Even colonized countries faced a significant amount of pain in tea plantations as the countrymen and women were enslaved to work.

And look at us today boasting about pizza and other junk. When you look at this drink with the prism of benefits, it is no longer just a high commodity. You won’t be wrong if you call it the elixir of life, as it proffers you immense health benefits. Tea throws a rescue rope even before you fall into the well.

 

More about tea

TeaThis beverage will be your great friend, if not, a spiritual friend when you scream through the roller coaster of life. Every tea type has benefits that can totally help you avoid lifestyle discomforts and soothe you during your moments of stress, dismay, and confusion. Tea has these extraordinary benefits because it is pumped with antioxidants, flavonoids, polyphenols. These components help you maintain your health and keep yourself mentally alert.

Bearing in mind all the benefits this beverage gives you, and the royalty it carries, one should directly storm to the doors of Ono Teas. With different product categories, Ono Teas provides you moments of relief and pleasure amidst your whirlpool of a hectic life and other lifestyle disorders. As a working professional, office, and pollution might prove to be your greatest enemies. And taming your enemies has never been easier.

 

Tea works wonders, one sip at a time

TeaNow let’s get into the macro and micro of factors affecting your stress. Let’s understand how tea can be the pedestal of relief for you.

Herbal teas are full of medicinal properties. They help soothe your digestive system and hydrate your skin while the antioxidants repair you from within. The world acclaims green teas for their therapeutic benefits. They are least processed and have polyphenol and catechin in high amounts. When you are baked in your work life, and office-related stress, a cup of green tea or chamomile tea can soothe you magically. They work like a magical potion.

On the health side, if you want to shed some weight, and soothe your bones internally, you can always have the turmeric herbal tea. It not only arouses you into the taste and moment of it but also can be your friend for better health too.

Ginger and Tulsi, as we know it, have always been our important herb for immunity and antibacterial properties. You can now enjoy our Tulsi Sweet Lemon and Tulsi Lemongrass, and prevent yourself from significant inflammatory and infectious diseases. Ginger tea also helps to calm nausea, and it soothes any individual quickly.

 

Tea gives you a moment to yourself, the right way

TeaBe it a lifestyle, friendship, solitude, conversations, or luxury; tea will provide you with the right steer to get past your work stress. For today’s working professionals, it is quite hard to find a moment to themselves. They constantly struggle to share time with their loved ones. And when they do, it is often unhealthy. Beer, pizza, and coffee have become the new fast, but it can never be royal. The question is not how high your life is instead how royal you treat yourself.

You can celebrate moments with your loved ones by sharing a cup of Hojicha tea after work. Or you can find peaceful sleep after long hours of office stress by enjoying gentle sips of Pure Chamomile tea.

If you want to add a punch of taste and aroma to your lifestyle, then take a moment to appreciate the Tulsi Lemongrass tea. Our Classic Green tea is remarkable in helping one to avoid fast-food-lifestyle consequences. It has compounds that aid in preventing oral bacteria. It is also a great shield against cholesterol.

You can also enjoy the company of other members in the family of tea. These include Chinese teaDarjeeling tea, Assam tea, Nilgiri tea, and Black tea. All of these types promise you a significant shift in life. They help you fight health problems and provide inner contentment.

 

To summarise

It is in the face of the young working generation to cope up with extreme lifestyle discomforts, such as stress, insomnia, anxiety, and depressions. But you have a choice. You can sit in your yoga pants by listening to heavenly binaural beats and streak through the day smoothly by getting your work done. Or you can walk to and fro across the corridor of your office by smoking a cigarette having a stressful discussion with your inner self.

In a world where fast food is glorified, let’s embrace what nature gives us. We enable you to battle all discomforts and concerns emanating from the modern lifestyle. With the daily hustle and work life and a backyard full of different moods and moments, what could be better than cherishing life’s presents with a cup of tea on the table? Live life tea size!

Want to Win the Battle Against the Effects of Fast Food?

Fast-food effects

When you have a tsunami of food brands that only aims to entice you into shelling loads of money buying fast food, you don’t have much of a fight. Fast food does taste awesome! Plus, in a world where you have to streak through the day with loads of work and an enormous amount of stress, finding relief and pleasure in fast foods is not uncommon. But take a moment and GET REAL. Apart from blessing you with ungodly amounts of harmful chemicals and junk, fast food could play a sinister role in killing you with bad cholesterol and saturated fat. It has incredible abilities to turn your stomach into a junkyard.

 

We have these weapons of mass destruction on every street corner, and they’re called donuts, cheeseburgers, French fries, potato chips, junk food. Our kids are living on a junk food diet.
– Joel Fuhrman

 

On the pretext of seeking instant gratification in the present, you risk your future. You may be aware of this fact. But you behave as if engulfed in a prison of pleasure. Think again! It’s time to keep your fast-food pangs under control. It’s time to bid farewell to your fast-food addiction and the resulting wave of risks it brings to your health. And, tea can help you in a big way. Know how.

 

Tip 1: Detox your system. With tea.

Fast-food effectsIt is imperative to detox your system regularly. You have raced and danced in the world of fast-food dirt tracks, and you expect the body to clean all of it by itself? You need to give your body a hand.

Detox tea could be the answer to your woes. Celebrities from all domains swear by the benefits of detox tea, making it look like the new super food! Hold your horses! Don’t succumb to the marketing gimmicks. Detox teas work best when accompanied with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Yes, eat right, you must! Exercise regularly, you must! Wondering what these teas are? Detox teas are simply herbal teas, also called tisanes. Ono Teas offers a range of such teas, including Peppermint tea, Skin Glow Herbal tea and Hibiscus tea.

 

Peppermint tea

This tea is a beautiful combination of spearmint, peppermint and regular mint, offering you an ideal herbal minty experience. This tea cleanses your body, improves long-term memory, promotes oral health, boosts energy and reduces allergy.

 

Skin Glow Herbal tea

This tea is a herbal tisane that has been carefully crafted to keep the body in perfect balance. With a combination of the medicinal properties of turmeric, ginger root and lemongrass, this caffeine-free tea is great for slimming down, and healthy skin and hair.

 

Hibiscus tea

We process this ‘all red’ herbal tisane with handpicked Hibiscus petals in small batches to offer you a delicious citrus treat. This exotic, soothing caffeine-free herbal tea is recommended for detox in addition to decreasing blood pressure, reducing cholesterol and lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

 

The above teas are excellent in flushing out toxins and bad cholesterol from your system. Regular consumption of these teas will offer you the elixir of rejuvenation.

 

Tip 2: Invest in nutrition.

Fast-food effectsIt is the first step to beat any further damage to your health caused by junk food. It is paramount that you need to stop excess intake of alcohol, coffee, smoking, meat, and fast food addictions in the next few hours. It’s necessary! Let this piece of news be your truth of the day.

You must start scheduling what you eat, why you eat and how much you eat. Introduce a whole food, nutritious diet to your lifestyle instead of pumping your body with foods that it doesn’t need. Do not dwell in YOLO. As you quit your addictions and slowly move towards the right kind of foods, you will experience the radical change – longevity and delayed aging. Remember, you are what you eat!

 

Tip 3: Sip tea. Simple!

Bring a change

Fast-food effectsLet’s be honest here. You cannot always maintain a schedule of ginger juices and green veggies to stay healthy. Sometimes you need a break from the not-so-boring-yet-boring diet food hassle. There’s where tea steps. Tea can serve as an excellent stimulant to help you stick to the lifestyle practices mentioned above. Moreover, tea is incredibly healthy, tasty and refreshing. You could begin your day with Turmeric Herbal tea. Turmeric is not only a great anti-inflammatory agent, but it also repairs your system within by providing antioxidants to your body.

Familiar with the over sensationalized protein, right? Protein fills your system with a lot of nutrients, making you feel full. Did you know that a fantastic green tea protein shake not only gives you protein but also kills cholesterol and saturated fats? You can blend tea with your protein shakes, thus supplying your system with ultra-rich bioactive compounds to build strength and cleanse your body at the same time. Moreover, you need a robust system to digest your protein intakes efficiently. So, tea and your protein foods work hand in hand.

 

De-stress with tea

Fast-food effectsThe effects of fast foods also steer their way towards impairing health when you don’t give yourself the breathing space or moments of solitude that your mind and body always need. Worry not, you have Hojicha or Tulsi Lemongrass tea to your aid. These teas not only have excellent compounds to help you repair and restore your health but also prove to be your best me-time drink.

Answering the concern of addressing daily stress – you can drink tea to bust your stress. When you meddle all your day in stressful work, your mind will run towards the hallways of junk food. To shoot two cans with one bullet, start having herbal tea. Teas, such as Pure Chamomile tea, Chamomile Lemongrass tea, Oolong tea, Darjeeling tea, Hojicha tea, and Earl Grey tea are the ultimate stress busters. You can manage your stress levels efficiently by avoiding fast-food, introducing a healthy diet, and sipping herbal tea every day.

 

Teas to calm you

Your sleep patterns are significantly affected by the fast-foods you gobble. Fast foods introduce parasites into your bowels which affect your digestion ultimately catapulting your sleep pattern into a dark abyss. You can blindly trust Pure Chamomile tea to relieve you from stress and give you a good night’s sleep. Chamomile is considered as a mild tranquilizer and aids your sleep greatly. A study published in PubMed Central, part of National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), has hinted that the compound, apigenin in chamomile might be responsible for the sedative effect of the tea.

Fast-food effectsHerbal tea is an excellent de-stressing and health-giving beverage, unlike coffee and beer. It does not only bring a promise of health, but also a sense of contentment in whatever you do. Be it watching a movie, reading a book, or attending a meditation session; tea is an excellent drink to offer you tranquility. Thus, replacing your coffee and beer with tea is a positive step for you to counter fast food effects and also the craving. Turmeric Herbal tea and Tulsi Lemongrass tea are known to rid your body of the toxins slowly. Green tea helps to lose weight, prevent the formation of cancerous cells, restores oral health and helps your body cleanse itself.

 

To conclude

Your decision to quit and combat the effects of fast food may be hard to come by. But once you decide on it, accept it wholeheartedly with a calm state of mind and with some tea. Your cognitive clarity is linked to how healthy your system is. If you keep treating your tummy as a junkyard, it will be tougher for you to cleanse your body efficiently. Introducing tea into your daily routine acts as a blessing. No hectic workouts, no time-consuming meal plans. Keep a regular schedule of exercise and yoga and enhance its effects with tea. At a time where even your conscious decision tells you to binge on fast food, avoid the impulse. Starve your body of fast food and slowly and steadily make tea a great friend in everything you do.
