By now everyone knows that you need to drink more water than you think you need. It’s amazing what a cool glass of water will do for a fatigued mind; the pep-up is near instant, and everything suddenly feels better. I’ve taken to drinking a large glass with a squeezed lemon half upon waking, and there’s nothing like it to jumpstart the day.
But It’s even better with a shot of matcha. One two-ounce cup, chased by a tall glass of agua, is big hydration and big nutrition. I also like pouring water into my matcha cup when I’m finished with the matcha; it not only gets every last bit of matcha in the cup, it rinses out the mouth and leaves a tasty trail of goodness going down. This is a ritual I repeat several times a day.
I also keep a little “mindfulness bell” near the matcha tools. A light tap of the bell keeps it singing for a good 20 seconds. There’s nothing like morning quiet, a fading bell, matcha, and plenty of water. Simple, powerful, and immensely enjoyable.
