My Gift To Myself This Women’s Day
My typical day begins at 6.30 a.m or that is when my alarm goes off. But, in recent times, there is no distinct demarcation between one day and the next. I wake up several times each night and sometimes nap during the day. No, I am not your average insomniac, I am just a mother. The baby at my breast never wants to be put down and needs continual attention (which I am more than happy to shower him with, even if it means I don’t get to shower sometimes!). Added to that I have a curious, ever-exploring 4-year-old who needs both love and direction in equal measure.
No wonder they say ‘Motherhood is the toughest job in the world’. I am trying to savor and immerse myself in this journey, I know they are growing too quickly. But being the primary caregiver, I sometimes sorely miss being taken care of. A hot steaming cuppa of tea would brighten my day! A fruity drink would refresh me, give me the healthy boost I require. I also have realized, keeping myself fit and healthy, both physically and mentally, is important to be a successful parent in the long term.
That’s why this Women’s Day, I decided to gift myself ‘self-care’ and ‘good health’ with InstaCuppa Green Tea Detox Bottle – Double Walled Glass EditionThis Women's Day, I am gifting myself 'self-care' and 'good health' with InstaCuppa. Click To Tweet
Why InstaCuppa Green Tea Detox Bottle?
My intention with this gift to myself is manifold: to increase my intake of anti-oxidant rich green tea as well as detox or infused water. This unique product from Instacuppa can be used to prepare teas(from loose leaf as well as tea bags), or to make fruit or vegetable infused water. I can brew it hot or cold! I plan to take just 2 mins every day to prepare my drink and keep it within reach. Its double-walled design will keep my beverage ‘as is’ (hot or cold). That way, as my baby drinks his fill, I can drink myself to health too.
- 4-in-1 product: Can be used as a glass bottle, tea infuser, fruit infuser or coffee infuser.
- Free Fruit Infusion Recipe ebook with every purchase.
- Complimentary Custom Anti-sweat & Thermos Sleeve.
- Eco-friendly products like Bamboo and Glass.
Is Infused Water Really Healthy?
To be truthful, I was really doubtful when I heard out about fruit infused water and its claims to good health. Was it the solution to clear skin? Did it really provide you with essential vitamins? So, I did what I usually do when I have questions: I googled. And this what I found out.
Yes, fruit-infused water did have some amount of vitamins and minerals infused into the water depending upon the type of fruit or vegetable or herb you use. But the main benefit is that
“It helps you drink more water and keeps you hydrated. It is a replacement for all the unhealthy soft drinks while providing you with taste and refreshment. Being hydrated keeps you healthy.”
DID YOU KNOW?
Breastfeeding mothers need to drink an average of 12-13 cups of water compared to other people who need only 8 glasses of water.
Being hydrated is of the essence to me right now since I breastfeed my baby and my milk is still his primary source of nutrition.
5 Concoctions I’d Really Like To Try With My InstaCuppa
This is the part I am really looking forward to; experimenting with my InstaCuppa Green Tea/Detox Infuser Bottle to concoct many a cocktail(without alcohol, of course!) and serve it to my unsuspecting subjects! We do need to infuse a bit of fun along with health into our lives, isn’t it? This is such a versatile product, but to start off, I shall try these recipes.
- Green tea: This one is obvious! The wonderful overall health benefits of green tea are known to all, specifically its antioxidant properties.
- Tulsi tea: for relaxing me and my family as well as giving us an immune boost.
- Lemon Cucumber Infused Water: With summer around the corner, this is going to be my go-to drink to cool me down and pick me up!
- Coconut and Pineapple Water: Why not a healthy Pina Colada?
- Strawberry Fennel Infused Water Detox Drink: I am partial to strawberries and this recipe is immersed in vitamins C and A and minerals, calcium, magnesium!. Watch this video from InstaCuppa to find out how to make it.
Happy Woman’s Day, Every day
My mother-in-law used to tell me how she hardly had time to eat when her kids were really small. She usually just drank some coffee from a flask to quench her thirst. Wouldn’t she have liked one of these or an InstaCuppa Fruit Infuser Water Bottle-Thermos Steel Edition? I would love to send one back to her through a time machine or maybe I will just get her one now!
I urge you all to gift yourselves and your loved ones the “Gift of good health“. Time to show ourselves some self-love.
