Tea, anyone?

I drink a couple of cups of tea during the day at work, when sitting at my desk and simultaneously doing whatever I'm doing (work, mostly). But the cup I need the most is the afternoon cuppa. The one I drink when there's still couple of hours of the day left, but I'd be ready to go home already. Then I need to take a break to shake off that worn out feeling ang to get a little more energy to spurt the rest of the day.

In order to give myself a proper break and take full advantage of that crazy 12-minute break I have, I've started to get out of the library. I go downstairs, to the entrance hall, and sit in the farthermost corner behind the plants. It's very peaceful in the hall in the afternoons and I'm not easily spotted behind the greenery even if a colleague walks by. The air conditioning blows a bit and it feels like I were sitting in a tiny jungle. Only ten minutes of sitting there makes me feel more energetic and helps me through the rest of the day.

Taking breaks is important. So is drinking enough tea.

Kuulostaapa mukavalta teehetkeltä. Mäkin ehkä tarvitsisin oman viidakon virkistämään opinnäytepainiskeluiden sun muiden keskellä.
