A week has passed since I last wrote You've Got This (thank you for all your beautiful messages in response!). Isolation has now become real for many of us and the craziness and uncertainty continue to grow. If you're like me, you're wondering how much longer this will last.
The last couple of days I started thinking about what we can do, what we have on hand, and we came up with this crazy idea.
In our Tielka warehouse, we have thousands of blank postcards, sitting in a box. Until a week or two ago, we were printing the Tielka story on them and sending them to cafes with their tea orders. (We send some to you too!)
Here's where the idea grows. I'm not sure about you, but I have this precious pile of little notes in my drawer - those special messages of love on paper from friends and family. They mean the world to me. This pile stopped growing a few years ago, I guess comments and likes on social media replaced them.
Interestingly, the likes and comments fade pretty quickly, but those notes - I re-read them every now and then and it's often the encouragement I need to keep going, I don't feel alone.
This idea we've created is called Post Hope and I would love you to be part of this. I'm inviting you to create a message to send to someone you love. We know it's tricky for you at the moment being in isolation, but we can put your message on one of our blank postcards and post it for you to almost anywhere in the world.
I think this could really do something special - something tangible that's not just on a screen. It's a message they can touch and remember for years. It can put a smile on someone's face, give them the hope they need to keep going. With all the isolation we're being faced with, this could make all the difference.
If you want to do this, type your message in at Post Hope. Type the recipient's address at the checkout and pay $5 to cover the cost. We'll print your message out and post it for you. We'll also include one of our award-winning pyramid teabags for your loved one to enjoy.
Writing your message will take just five minutes of your time and could be just what someone needs right now.
P.S If you want to add a box, pouch or tin of tea to your Post Hope message, just enter the code POSTHOPE when checking out and there will be no charge for your message.

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).

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.
