The Wonders of a cup of coffee

Have you ever at one time felt so bored with your daily activities so that you feel so tired and depressed, lethargic, moody, and lazy to do anything, the mind became clogged or stagnant. Anyway you feel tired physically and spiritually. Feeling like it is actually just a natural thing, almost everyone has experienced both men and women. Well, a cup of coffee at certain times can avoid or relieve you from the feeling depressed.
I demonstrated here, the housewives who also work, including me. They are some times also have a situation like that. Imagine, if a woman worker has been married for 30 years. That means that already 30 years she every day did her household tasks including the very consuming thoughts are thinking every single day about what the menu should be provided as her family dining so they do not get bored, and added as a career woman every day of course she had to do her office tasks and duties. Wooow ..... it seems so little time to be ourselves, so that sometimes there are times when we were hit by feeling bored and tired physically and mentally. But we must keep strong because the house should keep comfortable, the food should always be available, and office tasks should completed (well, it seems the women are indeed God's creatures that beautiful  .....and strong, of course)

Previously I have said that a cup of coffee can save you from the very uncomfortable situation, how can? You should take the time to perform the ritual cup of coffee with a stress reliever. Find your home a corner you like the most, can in your own room, can in front of the TV, or on the back porch, just anywhere, the  important is your favorite place/corner. Brewed coffee with an appropriate comparison, I would suggest not too sweet, and with a good and correct way. Bring your coffee to where you want to sit relax, put your body in a most comfortable position for you. Turn on relaxing music that you like (do not have to, because there are also people who like silence when relaxing). Now, open the cap of your coffee drink, inhaled first  the aroma before sipping it. For the first three sip, on each sip try to hold it once in your mouth before swallowing, leave all parts of your tongue feel the bitter and sweet of coffee and the aroma of coffee fulfill your oral cavity, then you can feel comfortable atmosphere infiltrate slowly into the body and mind.
Perform the ritual of coffee drinking in this way once a week, surely you will avoid the stress that accumulated from day to day which can cause the physical and mental burnout as I mentioned above. Of course, outside
that time you also can drink coffee every day, without doing the special ritual. Oh, there was one more suggestion, if you want to increase the sensation of relaxed atmosphere while feeling the effects of aromatherapy when you perform that relaxed ritual, you can try the cinnamon coffee drinks, will further add sense of relaxed. The recipe is on my last post. Well, do not waste time, just do it, eliminate stress in a simple and easy way.

a lot of warm greetings

Are you a coffee connoisseur ?

(Postingan kali ini saya ambil dari tulisan saya sendiri untuk sebuah blog komunitas di luar negeri, SDL Community, dimana saya ikut berpartisipasi didalamnya / I took this post from my own written for a community blog abroad, SDL Community, in which I participated)

A coffee addict different from a coffee connoisseur (coffee lover), although they are basically the same as coffee drinkers. A coffee addict usually want to drink coffee all the time, everyday, two to three times a day, even more than that. While a coffee connoisseuur will try to get good coffee in a pleasant atmosphere. If conditions do not support, such as health problems or because ofother reasons, never mind for them not to drink coffee. While the coffee addicts usually could not stand if do not drink coffee in a day. To a connoisseur of coffee is nice if able to enjoy coffee every day, while for a coffee addict is a necessity or a must for him to drink coffee every day. The question is, you are an addict of coffee or a coffee connoisseur (?).

For coffee lovers that I present a coffee beverage recipes are simple but tasty as below :
A cup of cinnamon coffee for you

One of the coffee drinks that I often make at home is "cinnamon coffee".
Very easy to make, very pleasant taste, and is perfect enjoyed on cool/cold air.
You can make as follows, enter 1 tsp full of coffee powder + 1 tsp full of sugar
(or up to your taste) into the cup and then pour 150 ml boiling water
(left 1 minute to reduce the temperature to be about 95 C) while stiring with
a cinnamon stick, close a moment (about 3 minute), open and stir again,
then your coffee is ready to be enjoyed. Hmmm.....very pleasant.
Just try it out.

Greetings to you all.
