While you are sweating when you walk outside, the air conditioner is working inside trains and buildings. The artificially created difference in temperature may cause autonomic nervous system disorders, lethargy, loss of appetite, and other summer-specific problems for many people.
In this issue of the Journal, we pick up on the topic of "summer chill" under the title of "Summer Worries.
We will introduce an approach using herbal teas.

"When you want to take a deep breath and get back to your own pace after a busy time axis, you can choose a blend such as Cool down blend, Calm down blend, or Turn off blend. When you want to take a deep breath and get out of your busy schedule, we recommend blends with the key words "calm down" and "relax" in them. Remember to inhale the aroma through your nose before drinking. Deep breathing helps the parasympathetic nervous system to become more active, which leads to relaxation.

■Rose・・・・It has a calming effect, and its graceful fragrance calms the mind and relaxes the body and mind.

Two points to enjoy herbal tea more
Two points to enjoy herbal tea more
In order to enjoy herbal tea more, please pay attention to the following two points.
Point 1: Before drinking, take a deep breath.
When you brew a cup of herbal tea, be sure to enjoy the aroma before you drink it. It is said that the sense of smell is the only one of the five senses that directly reaches the limbic system, which controls instinct and emotion. The speed of this process is an astonishing 0.2 seconds or less. To enhance the effects and benefits of herbal teas, we recommend that you take a deep breath and take in the aroma.
Point (2): Also value your intuition and preferences.
We have recommended herbs and blends according to the theme, but you don't necessarily need to focus on their effects and benefits to choose the right one. Simply choose teas according to your mood, intuition, and taste preferences. At that time, we would like you to add one action to inspect your condition. I would be happy if the habit of tuning in to your body and mind will help you to live each day in good health.
