When I quit my corporate job to help my parents run the family vineyard, I thought it would be easier than working for the man behind a desk from 9 to 5. I definitely didn’t anticipate how much work was behind running your own business. It’s not like you can shut the door and worry about it the next day when you go back to the office the next morning. The problems are always there and there is no one to solve them but you.
An excess of caffeine and cigarettes made me have my first mild heart attack before my forties. If that isn’t a sign you have to take it down a notch, I don’t know what is. I had to readjust my diet and try to reduce my levels of stress to a minimum. This was a life lesson that also taught me how to delegate work to others.
Changing my lifestyle also meant I had to quit coffee but I still needed that energy boost in the morning. So what was my alternative? Tea. Organic Chaga tea. It came highly recommended by a close friend and, considering I didn’t have much choice, I decided to try it at least for a month.
Three months later, and I still drink wild Chaga mushroom tea every day and I have no intention of stopping. I feel balanced, which is something I hadn’t felt in a long time. I was finally able to rest when I slept, I felt stronger, it definitely boosted my immune system because I don’t get sick as often as I used to. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I was ill.
Running the family business is still more stressful than my old corporate job, but Chaga Earth’s organic Chaga tea helps me have a clear mind and to put things in perspective.
