Cuppa Care

In my personal life, I have a pretty simple solution for just about every problem in life.  TEA!  When faced with just about any ailment or annoyance, a quick cuppa can help me feel better.  If only I could apply this to social work.

Depressed?  How about a colourful flowering tea to brighten your day?
Feeling anxious? A warm cup of ginger with honey to sooth and take the edge off.
Feeling lonely?  Why not spend some time with your friend Lady Grey?
Can't get to sleep?  Drift off with some chamomile.
Lacking energy and motivation? Some zesty lemon green tea should get you going.
Trouble getting along with the people in your life?  Bond over a boiling pot of chai.
Feeling broke and cold?  Hold that mug in both hands and feel it's warmth.

I mean, the list could go on all day.  If only our work were so simple and delicious.  I'm going to go brew some now!


  1. I'm a tea-holic too... my new office was set up with a kettle and a half dozen varieties before I even had my reference books in the door!

  2. I know that there are teas that are supposed to help with relaxation. Do they really work?

    1. I certainly can't answer that from any scientific point of view, but I think it could work. For me, it's more the effect of taking out some time to sit and drink it in.

  3. Reading this makes me want to have a nice cup of ginger tea!
