One way to build a healthier life is to emulate the habits of those who are blessed with good health and longevity. Here’s one you can easily incorporate into your daily life: sit back and enjoy a cup of Jiaogulan tea.
Where Jiaogulan tea is grown in Southeast Asia, Jiaogulan is known as the tea of life because those who drink it are known for their longevity and good health. It has traditional uses treating ulcers, supporting digestion, and more. Modern research suggests it may benefit cardiovascular health.
When building healthy habits, adding is often an easier strategy than changing or stopping. Jiaogulan is great for this strategy, but can also be used if you are trying to change what you drink (quitting caffeine or drinks high in sugar). Building a healthy habit can be as simple as sitting down in the afternoon for a 10 minute break and a cup of tea.
More than the herbal benefits, you get the benefits of a mindful ritual. Humans are deeply ingrained to have rituals around food—whether it’s following a family recipe, a yearly canning event, or a daily habit like an afternoon cup of tea. Having a healthy daily routine can be meditative, which offers its own benefits.
So start your own new healthy habits, like pouring a cup of healthy herbal tea and clearing your mental state each afternoon. Pick up some Jiaogulan tea today to get started.
And don’t be afraid to share your moment with a friend. We can all use a little mental break!
