Staying hydrated is something I’ve struggled with during the winter months. I’d frequently glance at the clock in the mid-afternoon, usually about the time that I start to feel a dull headache coming on, only to realize I’ve had no fluids since my morning cup of coffee. It’s no wonder I need to slather on way more expensive facial moisturizer in the winter – my poor cells probably look like raisins!
Let’s be honest though. Cold weather makes drinking cold water rather unappealing. Carrying around a cold water bottle all day, even less so. What is appealing to me in the wintertime though is a big mug of piping hot tea. When I say big, I mean big.
Given my aversion to cold water in the winter months, tea has been my saving grace when it comes to staying hydrated these days. Pairing a mug with a piece of fruit makes for a great little mid-morning and mid-afternoon “me” time.
My friends over at Celestial Seasonings recently sent me some of their new wellness teas to try as part of their 31 Days of TeaLC Challenge this month. I’m challenging myself to have at least two giant mugs a day this entire month to stay better hydrated.
Three if I’m feeling ambitious.
My favorites at the moment are the Natural Detox Wellness Tea which is naturally decaffeinated making it great bedtime tea. It’s also flavored with vanilla – possibly my favorite thing about it. I shared a mug with Kim in Seattle this week and she described it as tasty, aromatic and relaxing. I’d have to agree.
In the spirit of spreading good hydration habits this winter, I get to give away a month’s supply of Celestial Seasonings teas to two of you! We’re talking boxes and boxes of yummy wellness teas – way more than a month’s supply in my opinion.
