"In winter when the cold winds clawed through our thin clothing and made the ground hard and unworkable, I would let my hair hang free and shield my face from at least a little of the wind." <---not mine, but amazing!
It's called tea to start the day. Just relax with a cup of hot tea in the morning for 10 minutes, even it I woke up late and my day is rushed. Then tea in the afternoon, and early evening. It's my tea time ritual, a mini meditation, you could say.
