Why I love matcha tea!

October 7, 2017 in Blog - No Comments - 2 min read

Matcha tea is very marmite, You either love it or you hate it. I personally am OBSESSED with it. It makes me feel so good and incredibly energetic when I need it most. I usually wouldn’t be so bothered in letting people know I love a certain drink but, this is slightly different.

Ever since I was 13, I’ve been suffering from horrible migraines, that literally take a whole day out of my life. If I wake up with one, then that’s it, my whole day is confined to my bed and the only sort of remedy I’ve found is to just be unconscious. I can eat anything or drink anything, as my migraine will just not allow it to stay down there. I’m sure some of you can relate and trust me and I am with you and feel your pain.

Myself nor a doctor has never been able to pinpoint what’s causing it? is it too much dairy, not enough water? We just don’t know.

So I started drinking matcha tea. I’m a big fan of herbal tea, in all kinds of flavors anyway. So I decided to do the occasional shot of matcha when I felt slightly peaky wouldn’t be too much of a problem. The first few times, around 20 minutes of drinking it, I had this really positive high, physically and mentally. I really don’t know how to describe it, I just felt really good and loved it. My energy levels went up, and I felt incredibly proactive, whether I was working or hitting the gym. I didn’t feel tired.

And combining my matcha tea with water, my headaches were not so frequent. Now it could be a coincidence but I choose to believe, these two factors were helping me.

So this is watch Matcha tea does:

  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies effectively and naturally
  • Calms the mind and relaxes the body
  • Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium  (Source)

And I think these factors, may have been what my body was screaming out for. Matcha brings this high sense of relaxation and it should not be overlooked. Matcha is just a really pure form of green tea and I think it tastes the same or sometimes, the taste is really minimal (depending on which brand you go for)

So if you get migraines and are looking for some form of relief, try matcha! Its only healthy for you and I really think it improves your wellbeing.

I’m also working on creating a monthly newsletter (Starting in January) with social media and self-care tips and tricks I’ve found that works for me. These are two of my favourite topics to talk about so I think combining them together, will be a lovely little dose of news.

  • 💫 Well, it’s my second day of working from home for the foreseeable future. I’ve worked from home quite a bit anyway with my job but doing it long term is going to be quite a shift. 🎉However, it is something we can & must do if able. So how am I setting myself up? 🥰I’m trying to keep as much of a schedule going as possible when it comes to work. I’m also working on creating a barrier between my home environment & work environment, it’s important to not let it all merge into one. 🙏🏻 I’ll be sharing everything through my stories and blog soon. Remember, we are all in this together! My DM’s are always open if anyone needs a chat. 👌🏼💖
  • ✨ A little throwback snap from one of my new favourite hotspots in Cambridge, wishing this had been my breakfast this morning. 🍳 I obviously won’t be cooking anything as fabulous while I’m working from home, but one can dream right?! 💖💫
  • 💫 LIVING LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE. ✨ We’ve not really ventured out the house much this weekend except for the one Tesco shop. (Not a fun experience) Although the UK isn’t on a lockdown yet, we are prepping for it and limiting where we go. Ive really been enjoying the #staythefuckhome & defo recommend you give it a scroll. Stay safe, stay well & stay home (if you can) 🥰♥️
  • ✨ With all the noise from the news & a heavy work load, I’ve been finding it difficult to get a proper good sleep 💤 this week. I’m sure some of you are just the same. It’s a crazy, unknown time and difficult to just switch off from that anxious feeling. Luckily I’ve found a little  bedtime spray, a good book 📚 and night time moisturiser can help calm me down a little. While it obviously doesn’t magically solve everything, it does help me. 💫 So, I encourage you all to do the little things that make you feel just that little bit better during this time.♥️
  • Happy Sunday! 💫 oh my goodness, it’s been a hella of a busy time of late. Over the last few weeks, works been full on & I somehow managed to squeeze in a driving test along the way (which I passed 🎉) AND as a result, I’ve had a very exciting weekend shopping for my first car, feeling very happy & lucky. 😌Today I think I’m just gonna nest at home and enjoy the art of doing nothing ✨
  • 💫 Going into today with this as my mantra.👌🏼 Its no secret that I’m currently finding myself swamped at work! 😩So wishing you a peaceful & smooth working week ✨💖
