These days it seems like there’s a pill or vitamin for everything. Aching pinky toe? There’s probably a pill for that. Why not stock your medicine cabinet with superb herbal tea instead? These herbal remedies can get you feeling back to your spectacular self, naturally.

Chamomile
Can’t count any more sheep? Chamomile tea is known to help you unwind. When stomach aches or muscle pains keep you up, chamomile’s natural anti-inflammatory powers will help your muscles relax – even the ones knotted up in your stomach.

Cinnamon
Cinnamon helps the body calm down and aids digestion. Its warming effects help relax muscles while anti-bacterial properties fight against vicious stomach ache bacteria that cause indigestion and stomach aches.

Ginger
Ginger is an age old remedy that treats everything from nausea to the common cold and migraines. Feeling every turn and bump in the backseat? Take some ginger tea for your cup holder.

Hibiscus
Don’t just stop and smell this flower! Hibiscus helps lower high blood pressure. Its anti-inflammatory powers are also no match for colds and chest congestion. Hibiscus for the win.

Lemongrass
Lemon grass. No, it is not the same grass in your front yard. That grass won’t help your stress level. Lemon grass on the other hand? A stress reliever and no lawnmower required.

Peppermint
Mint tea will refresh you inside and out by aiding relaxation and relieving stomach issues. Your muscles, stomach and mind will all feel minty fresh!


Brainstorming can be an exhausting process and remembering your ideas can be even harder. Here are five tips to help you hold on to your bright ideas.

Write It Down!
Even though ideas seem to appear at the most inconvenient times, its crucial to record a fresh idea. This means, no matter what you are doing, stop and write down your great idea.

Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself
It’s good to be sceptical, but you should never let you scepticism keep you from pursuing a bright idea. Just try, and don’t be afraid to fail… If you do, than you’ll know what not to do the next time.

Be Careful Who You Share Your Idea With
Make sure to share your idea only with people who’s opinions you can trust. I’m not saying only share with family and friends, but don’t just ask some Joe Shmo on the corner so he can give you his two cents, and possibly discourage you from pursuing your idea- or worse: steal it.

Silly is Ok!
Not every idea will be a great one, but don’t immediately discard those ideas that seem silly at first. Remember, everything great started off small. Who knows, with a little work, that silly idea could become the next big thing!

Don’t Look Back!
Once you’ve got your bright idea, start running with it! Too many times have over analyzing and procrastination killed great ideas. Get started on your idea and always be looking to the future. While developing an idea, it’s always best to have the end in mind, so that you are able to make decisions on how important a certain element is to the big picture of your idea.


Looking for a fresh start this New Year? Tired of giving up your New Year’s resolution in February? Old habits die hard. Instead of clearing off that treadmill, try focusing on drinking just 2 extra cups of tea a day.

Trying to lose weight?
Gulp down a few extra glasses of green tea for a fiber filled diet that will have you shedding pounds without even realizing it.

Want to be healthier?
Just like every other addiction, the key is to stay positive and let the frustrating times pass. Try replacing your cigarette breaks with tea time. Not only does tea help reduce stress, but black teas help aid your lungs in fighting against the harmful carcinogens found in cigarette smoke. Your new habit can be shared with your friends and family, too!

Looking to save some money?
Used tea leaves can serve a million different purposes. You can make your own shampoo, essential oils or just add it too your garden for a compost. Also, drinking loose leaf tea is way cheaper than beverages like coffee or alcohol.


Let’s face it, not all of us are cut out for spending our valuable free time torturing our bodies in some smelly gym. If you are a person who has the urge to get in a two-hour workout everyday, my hat is off to you. But for those of you like me, who couldn’t think of a more daunting way to spend their free time, here are a few ways to avoid the gym, but also keep a healthy body.

Take Your Best Friend To The Park
Dust off that leash and spend the day with your four legged friend. Run, skip, or walk to the park. Playing with your furry friend can burn about 90 calories in 30 minutes.

Be A Kid Again
The things we did as children are often great ways to burn calories. Grab a kite. Go on a bike ride. Whatever you do, just have fun with it, and you’ll never realize how many calories you’re burning.

Get A Green Thumb
Plant a few seeds, and dive into the world of gardening. Tilling soil and digging out weeds is not only a great way to burn calories, but caring for a growing living.

Drink Green Tea
A few cups of green tea will get your metabolism going, and because it has virtually no calories, you can drink it until the cows come home. It will also provide you with a natural energy boost, leaving you feeling fresh and focused.
