It’s Tea Tuesday everybody!
I visited Healthy U looking for some Ginseng tea but instead found this… Dr Stuarts Valerian Tea.
When I was working at a restaurant, i found that my work hours were irregular, often getting home late in the night and waking up very early. It was hard for me to find that deep sleep that leaves you feeling refreshed in the morning. Sometimes, it was difficult even getting to sleep, so, my way around that was usually to have a glass of wine before sleeping.
Soon, it occurred to me that that was not the healthier alternative and in fact aggravated the sleeping problems, so I turned to lemon water and a bowl of muesli before bed. The only problem with that is that i found it even harder to get out of bed in the morning.
Even after I left the job, I found that that unhealthy routine had stuck and i was craving for an easy, healthy, natural way to achieve healthy sleeping patterns.
Here it is!
Prepared with a fresh pot of hot water, drinking a cup of valerian tea an hour before bed is sure to send you drifting off to dreamland. In addition to that, it’s great for headaches, anxiety and many other minor ailments [http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-870-valerian.aspx?activeIngredientId=870&activeIngredientName=valerian] .
I would also recommend it for people who are trying to quit drinking as well as those who regularly use alcohol for sleep.
NOTE: Please do not operate heavy machinery or drive after drinking this as it may cause drowsiness (thus the blurry picture ^_^)
Remember, drinking is always fun when it’s done responsibly.
