Think, drink, and sink into your thoughts with RealChai

The wise Abraham lincoln once said “ A day without a cup of RealChai is a day wasted “

…Okay, so maybe he didn’t say that.

Product placement? I have no idea what you are talking about.

But one thing I can tell you, is that whilst I sit here, drinking my Steamy and soothing cup of RealChai tea, I do feel almost as humble as he.

On a similar occasion one morning, I began to think to myself: what exactly did make Abraham Lincoln so wise? Unsurprisingly, this is a question that I didn’t actually know the answer to. After typing key words in to google search, scamming through several biographies, and reading many of his inspirational quotes (all the while wishing I listened more in history) I decided; Abraham Lincoln was a thoughtful man. He quietly considered, and then loudly concluded.

I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but there are a lot of people rushing around us. They need to get to work, or pick up the kids, or study for an exam – I’m a self – confessed rusher too. It’s true that there is always something that needs to be done, but imagine if finding time to sit down with a cup of tea and lose yourself to your own mind was made a priority in every day life.

The beautiful thing about thinking is that it leads to more thinking. It’s an intricate and delicate chain reaction, with significant thoughts and those that are insignificant too - not one less important the next - blurred lines and bright ideas, remembered occasions and triggered feelings. Thinking can take you to so many places with out being there. It can bring peace and closure, or arouse fury and flame.

It’s not often enough that people treat themselves to the luxury of a cup of tea and a room of silence. The powerful combination of the two is most certainly something that is underestimated.

So I suppose what I am trying to say is that finding complete peace of mind may be hard, but making a tea and finding your way to the couch isn’t, and will, in turn, take you a step closer to being a new age Abraham Lincoln… only less hairy maybe.
