The British really have it right when it comes to this concept. Sit down during the day, drink something warm, regroup, breath. Growing up in the cold midwest, we drank a lot of tea (the caffeine free, herbal kind). Celestial Seasonings have a lot of wonderful flavors, but my favorite was "Sleepytime" with lots of honey. Now that I live in a desert, a cup of hot tea isn't as appealing. However, when December rolls around each year, I break out my Michael Graves teapot. I also have a collection of mugs that I've painted through the years. December is always crazy, but how much I love those ten minutes here and there when I make myself sit down for tea (sounds so civilized doesn't it?). Remember moms...your air mask first, then your child's.....take time for tea (or a pedi or a book) and reflect for a minute on what's important. Really, you've earned it, and you'll be a better mom for it.
