Nighttime Ginger Tea

Do you guys have a bedtime routine? I remember a time not too long ago when I didn't.

My sleep was terrible. I was exhausted all the time but no matter how hard I tried or didn't try, I couldn't sleep. Some nights I went to bed too hungry and some too full. I worked on homework right up until bed, using my phone or laptop and exposing myself to blue light.

After many nights of waking up just as tired as I was when I went to sleep, I knew something needed to change. So, I started doing some research.

I found out that stress and anxiety could be the cause of my sleeplessness. So I started meditating. I experimented with how much or little I ate and how many hours before bed I should stop eating to feel comfortable at bedtime. I installed a blue light filter on my laptop. (<-- Definitely do this if you haven't already.) I got into the habit reading before bed instead of staring at my phone. And I started drinking Nighttime Ginger Tea.

When I first made Nighttime Ginger Tea, I didn't know what a difference it would make it my routine. One night, I wanted a warm beverage, so I heated up some water and decided I'd sprinkle in some ginger.

I knew that ginger has some incredible benefits. Ginger can help relieve muscle pain (which I was experiencing at the time). It also aids in digestion, which is always nice at the end of the day. Further, it relieves nausea and indigestion. I love me some fiber, but sometimes all that extra bulk doesn't agree with me, so ginger is a great spice to help out my belly.

Despite knowing all these things about ginger, I wasn't expecting anything miraculous. But after drinking this tea, I realized how much better I felt. My stomach was calm. I felt the muscles relax. And then my stomach didn't bother me one bit when I went to sleep!

So I tried Nighttime Ginger Tea again the next day. And it worked again! I was changed. Now I drink a warm mug of ginger tea every night and I feel great. Try it once and you'll be hooked.

The simplicity of Nighttime Ginger Tea is the best part. Nothing fancy. Just pour boiling water over some ground ginger and enjoy sipping on some warm tea before bed.

Happy sleeping!

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
