I'm going to go out on a limb here and say if you're reading this, you're probably spending Christmas with family or friends today.
If you aren't, I'm hoping there's someone in your life who's also reading this message, or hearing the same message elsewhere.
So much about Christmas is centred on being where we belong; being with people we love.
When we feel we belong, we have a sense of wellbeing, a sense that things are right in this world.
Christmas is also about giving.
We don't just give gifts. We give our time, we give delicious food that we prepare, we give the best part of ourselves so that others can enjoy our company (yes, the grumps do get in the way occasionally!).
After another big year, where many of us have been isolated, there's a good chance we're feeling a heightened sense for the need of belonging.
And I'd like to suggest there's someone in your world feeling this right now.
As you are reading this, can you take a moment and reflect.
Who is this person for you?
Is there a name popping into your head right now?
An old friend? A family member? A work colleague?
This Christmas, I'd like to give you a little nudge.
You being you is what someone in your world needs right now.
And if something inside you is connecting to this message, even a little bit, don't ignore it.
Take your phone. Find a quiet place. Give that someone a call.
Your simple act of giving them a call will remind them they are significant in this world.
Indulge in life.

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.

If you're just as excited as we were that this could even be a thing, hold on to your knickers, this white tea party is just getting started.
Remember how white tea is jam-packed with antioxidants and supports skin elasticity?
And how can we forget about theanine, that magical amino acid in white tea that gives you a massive mood boost?
Well, what if we added some lemon, a little honey, and GIN?
