Today, millions of people make the commute from the bedroom down the hall to the home office. The stress of traffic is gone, yet the stress of balancing work and home is real. There are no hard and fast rules about working from home. While this can be a good thing, it can also be a bad thing. If you are struggling, don't worry! You can take back time and the energy you need to find your inner "Zen".
1. Create Morning Rituals
It's tempting to sleep until the world needs you, yet rolling from your bed to your desk is not a habit that will make you feel happy!
On the other hand, morning rituals can create a sense of balance. It's choosing to do something VS having to do something. It's time for you!

My saving grace is to take tea breaks! Tea breaks are happy little bits of time carved out to enjoy a cup of tea. It is a slow and mindful approach to each day with time carved out for recharging with a happy cup of tea.
If you can heat water, you can have a tea break ANYWHERE. Our Tea Happy box comes with four different uplifting tea blends, 12 unbleached tea filters, and a gift for a future order. It is all in one cute little box that you can slide into your desk drawer and pull out for your daily dose of mindfulness.
We have created the perfect companion for a daily tea break. You can consider this a mini tea break kit. It contains everything you need in one box so you can quickly relax and recharge. Get a spoon, make your tea bag, and add water!
