I am the embodiment of “I CAN keep calm without keeping calm”. Yes I always feel like I should be doing something at any given moment, otherwise, I am “wasting my life away”. I could never take a nap during the day. I’m only sleepy when it’s dark outside. The minute sun rises, my eyes lit up. I have to admit, my Circadian rhythm annoys me to the core sometimes especially on the weekends when I have absolutely no reason to be up early. Nonetheless, I wake up most mornings feeling well-rested and can go through the most hectic days calmly. I have actually been recognized for my ability to stay calm in the midst of fire drills. Doesn’t mean that I don’t care about what’s going around me, it just means I realize that freaking out won’t make my situation better. I know some people work better under pressure, but that’s not me.
So how do I get my daily does of calm?
Easy – by starting my day with a simple cuppa (usually black or purple tea). Every sip bring me a sense of calm while concurrently bringing my mind to focus on what lies ahead. Is that even possible? Absolutely – with tea, it is. Real rea from the camellia sinensis tea plant naturally contains L-theanine – amino acid which studies have shown to provide a range of health benefits, which may include improved mental focus and better sleep
L-theanine amplifies alpha brain waves, allowing for a type of calm alertness and even heightened creativity. Want your daily does of C-Alert? Chixotic Black MajesTea contains about 24 mg/200 ml of l-theanine which is three times the level found in green tea
