Behind the Scenes - Early Morning

Behind the Scenes - Early Morning

It starts well. 

I'm up before everyone else. The house is quiet. Everyone still sleeping. 

I creep past my three-year-old in his bed and carefully turn the door handle. It clunks as I release it too quickly. My teeth grit. I look around. He doesn't stir. Phew.

Time is precious. There are priorities.

The kettle is switched on. 

My favourite teacup is still drying under a pile of clean dishes. I weigh up my desire for a pretty teacup with my desire not to wake anyone with the noise of moving dishes. I will use a mug this morning.

My Lady Betty tin is empty right now. The cold morning and ticking clock make the Tielka warehouse next door slightly too far away to get more. I'll have Earl Royale instead. It's a pretty good substitute. Like choosing a butter croissant when the almond croissants are out of stock.

I insert my earbuds, turn my Spotify playlist on, and take my mug to the couch. It's still a little too cold to spend this precious time on our back deck.

A glance at the clock reveals I have 35 minutes until the house stirs. It doesn't feel long enough. I will make the most of every minute.

My music, my tea, my thoughts, my prayers, fill the next half hour or so. 

My day is nothing without this.

It sets the scene for the rest of the day. Family, Tielka, life, faith. They are all recharged in these moments.

Accompanied by a beautiful cup of tea, it all comes together. Whatever happens next, the day can start with cohesion and beauty.

This is why Tielka exists.

Indulge in life.

You've probably noticed how your enjoyment of life takes a serious dive when you don't get enough sleep.

A couple of restless nights and your sunny self makes way for a mask of misery. 

The good news is it's not you. It's the sleep.

Or lack thereof.

Sleep is one of the most underrated contributors to good mental health and the world is only just starting to wake up to this truth (excuse the pun).

It's 8:47am. 

You're closing in on the start of your day and feel like you already need a break.

Conversations out loud with small people buzzing at your feet.

Conversations in your head with big people who are most certainly wrong.

You've sorted them all out. You don't feel any better for it.

Where did all the energy go?

You've probably noticed how your day flows better when you start with a cup of tea. 

Time for yourself. A moment of clarity.

Your morning cup sets you on a good path for the rest of the day.

Combine that with a mid morning cuppa, early, late afternoon sips and an evening herbal and your day is broken into approachable chunks of time.

It's no secret that habits form the basis of success, and a day built around habitual cups of tea creates a perfect framework to organise your day.
