3. Warm Milk or Warm Turmeric Milk
Many Indian families follow the tradition of drinking a glass of warm milk or turmeric milk every night before going to bed. Milk contains an amino acid called tryptophan, which gets converted into serotonin – a feel-good hormone. This not only improves your mood, but also calms you down. Turmeric milk is one of the best natural healthy drinks out there. It also has healing and anti-inflammatory benefits.
To make turmeric milk, boil one glass of milk and while the milk is warming up, add a half teaspoon of turmeric, 2-3 pods of cardamom, sugar or jaggery for sweetness, and 2-3 strands of saffron.
Kahwa is a Kashmiri Tea, which is great for your health and is also an energy-boosting drink. It not only helps improve your mood and relax you, but also detoxifies your body, improves your heart health, and gives you a natural glow. To make Kahwa, boil a glass of water. To it, add cinnamon, cardamom pods, sweetener, saffron, and a few chopped almonds. Once it is boiled, drink it warm.
Next time you are stressed, you know what to do. Make any of these drinks to calm yourself and feel energized instead. Give yourself a deep relaxation with a healthy beverage and combat any anxiety you may be feeling.
