I am someone thats constantly on the go, in fact I usually exhaust myself, and thats when the nap/sleep comes in. It’s all in my nature, to be in constant thought and creation. However balance in necessary to recharge and replenish yourself. Be it through detaching/unplugging to take some time out of the day to read a book, journal, or any activity that helps you to unwind. Personally I like accompanying my downtime with something to imbibe, preferably handmade.
The solution? Scooping some adaptogens in my mug. Moon Deli Meditation Tonic has been a newfound go-to when I want to step into a calmer atmosphere.
Moon Deli is a California-based (Santa Cruz to be exact) shop that features a selection of tonics + powders + wildcrafted goods with the goal of self-care. Whether you want a boost of energy or need to unwind, they believe its your vibe that sets the mood. Moon Deli only works with suppliers who are USDA Organic Certified, Fair Trade Certified, Non-GMO Project Certified and Rain Forest Alliance Certified, promoting quality ingredients and a sustainable approach to wellness.
However I will always love a warm cup of coffee. When topped with creamy coconut milk and sprinkles of cinnamon. While it is a stimulant and while I may want to slow down, I still want the rich aroma of coffee and spices wafting through the air. A small scoop of Moon Deli’s Meditation Tonic doesn’t affect the flavor + reminds me to consider what I am drinking:
Gotu Kola: a beautiful verdant leaf + root that is relative to parsley family has shown in scientific studies to have. positive effects on cognitive processes / source (4)
Red Reishi Mushroom: Fungi have been touted as nutritious additions to meal, especially if you are eating plant based, now the “medicinal mushrooms” have made their way in powder or whole/dried form. Here are some links to articles with the benefits of medicinal mushrooms
Schisandra Berry: Mountain Rose Herbs, Schisandra Berry has a usually sour, sweet, bitter, warm, and salty taste, hence the name “five taste” and certain compounds in Schisandra have been tested for mental acuity and potential cognitive improvement in various studies (source, scroll to the bottom for references)
Meditation Tonic is meant to relax and help center you through the potential of these botanical gems. A glass jar comes with 50 servings of but you can make it last longer! Sometimes I stick to adding a little less that the recommended serving of one teaspoon if I am having a smaller cup.
SO! While I sip my meditation tonic coffee I have been playing Jessie James Decker’s new album Southern Girl City Lights and Netflixing some favorite shows + starting some new books I got! I love October and still have so much I want to do but it’s a reminder to slow down and enjoy moments of clarity + peace with yourself!!!
