The Best Teas to Drink in the Morning, Afternoon & Evening

Drink

There’s nothing like a warm cup of tea to start your morning—or maybe you’re all about an iced hibiscus on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Whether you’re just craving chamomile or are looking to ditch your coffee dependency, here’s our go-to guide on incorporating a few new teas into your daily routine! 


Morning Ritual // 9:00 AM

Want that extra morning energy without the caffeine jitters? Switch out your morning mug of coffee for a warm, energizing cup of earl grey. Serve as is or stir in some milk and honey for extra coziness. If you want to spice things up, try chai tea instead! The combination of cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger smells amazing and gives you that nice little flavor kick to start your day off right.

 

Mid-day Boost // 2:00 PM

If you’re feeling a little sluggish post-lunch, beat the afternoon slump with some lemon ginger green tea. Green tea can be a great alternative to coffee in the afternoon when you want that little boost of energy. An added benefit: lemon and ginger work together to aid digestion which is especially helpful after lunch. 

If you’re not into hot drinks, opt-in for a fruity iced green tea instead. Steep some honeydew or peach green tea in hot water for a few minutes and then pour over ice until it’s nice and cool. Enjoy with a slice of lemon, and you’ll feel refreshed and ready to tackle any task. 

 

Evening Calm // 8:00 PM

Slip on some fuzzy socks, light your favorite candles, and fire up the kettle—it’s time to wind down after a long day. Grab yourself a soothing cup of lavender chamomile tea and indulge in some well-deserved self-love. 

 

Bonus sip // Any time of day!

Two words: peppermint tea. Perfect for all hours, peppermint tea is not only good for your immune system, but it can also support healthy digestion so you’ll be feeling great, no matter where you go or what you do.

breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month—Here’s How You Can Make a Difference

Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.

This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.

Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.

Encourage your favorite studio to sign up for the event

If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help pagewhere they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.  

Other ways to help

Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.

This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
