Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog

Do you feel a bit tired without having put in much mental or physical effort? Are you perhaps a bit grumpy, even though there really is no reason for that? Then ask yourself whether you have drunk enough today! Hydration is the key to many physical discomforts, but unfortunately we don't always realize it. In general, people do not drink enough, with the result that the body starts to protest. We need that fluid to properly regulate all kinds of processes in our body. Those who drink enough perform better!

Make healthy choices

At least two and a half liters of water per day is needed for our digestion to function properly. With an insufficiently hydrated body, you can easily become moody. Moreover, it can also greatly affect your concentration. In principle, pure water is always a good choice, but you also want to drink something different, something with more flavor, for some much-needed variety. Tea is then an excellent alternative. A cup of black tea is much healthier than, for example, a glass of soft drink. Especially if you stick to tea without sugar or milk, you can continue to enjoy it without any worries. All kinds of substances are often added to soft drinks that, if consumed excessively, have a negative effect on our health. You don't have that problem with tea.

The many health benefits of black tea

While hydration is crucial for a well-functioning body and a clear mind, choosing the right drinks is just as important. As an alternative to water or less healthy sweet drinks, black tea offers a wealth of health benefits that can boost your mood and overall well-being. Drinking black tea contributes to better hydration and also provides important antioxidants that protect the body against cell damage. These antioxidants, such as catechins and theaflavins, are not only good for your skin, but also help regulate your blood sugar levels and improve heart health.

So, drinking black tea regularly can go a long way in maintaining glowing skin and a youthful appearance, while at the same time helping to reduce inflammation in the body. Additionally, black tea has been shown to improve mental alertness and concentration, thanks to its moderate caffeine content. This makes it an ideal drink for the morning or a boost in the afternoon, without the disadvantages of excessive caffeine that you find in coffee, for example. So the next time you're feeling a little tired or down, consider a cup of warm, comforting black tea to boost you both physically and mentally. Or... make a deliciously cooling ice tea when it's hot!

Plenty of variation options

There are also many different types of tea, so you can pour yourself exactly the variety that you fancy at that moment. People often have several types of loose tea at home, so they can make a different choice at any time of the day. There are types of tea that are known to give you extra energy, while other types of tea have a calming effect or promote sleep. Of course, it is also mainly a matter of taste. Do you prefer tea with herbs, fruit blends or do you prefer pure black or green tea? Most types of tea can be kept for months without deteriorating quality.

Last but not least: be careful with alcohol

When we talk about drinking enough, it is about the amount of water that ends up in your body. But what about alcohol? Doesn't an alcoholic drink also largely consist of water? That's right, but the alcohol it contains actually removes moisture from the body. It is much healthier to give up alcohol completely.
