Today’s mood is winter days & chai lattes… it is grey and drizzling with rain here in the U.K. it perfectly represents what recovery can feel like, grey and bleak… if you let it!
Instead I choose Chai Lattes! When it is cold and grey outside there is something very comforting about being snuggled up inside with a warming chai latte.
Recovery can be a challenging time, you have a lot of time on your hands and you can’t always turn to your ‘go to ways’ of relaxing such as a steamy bath or the gym so you have to find alternative ways to relax and look after yourself, for me this is meditation and chai lattes!
For me it is essential that during recovery I take time out to look after myself both mentally and physically. When your body is going through something physical taking time out for self love and care can really increase your sense of wellbeing and to me nothing screams out self love and care more than a peaceful morning meditation followed by a warming chai latte…
My go to chai latte recipe is the Chai coconut latte by deliciously Ella :
480ml coconut milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons chai spices
For the chai spices:
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground all spice
Simply heat the milk over a medium heat for 5mins, then mix the spices together and add them to the pan with the maple syrup- serve when warm!
