18 things to do while the tea is brewing

I love a good cup of tea or coffee. In fact, I make sure to have several coffee or tea breaks during the day. And while I wait for the coffee or tea to brew, I try to use the time to either do some smaller, daily chores or some pleasant activities that could brighten my day.

Here are 18 things you could do in the 3-5 minutes it takes to brew a cup of tea:

  1. Cut some fresh flowers from the garden and put them in a vase in your bedroom so that you can wake up to the smell of flowers tomorrow morning.
  2. Do a set of squats, push ups or sit ups.
  3. Wipe down tables and counter tops.
  4. Water the plants.
  5. Put on some music and dance.
  6. Send a loved one a lovely message.
  7. Clear away toys, papers, magazines or whatever it is that tends to multiply around your house.
  8. Empty the dishwasher.
  9. Fluff up the pillows.
  10. Take out the rubbish.
  11. Pick up the mail.
  12. Do some breathing exercises.
  13. Delete unwanted pictures from your phone.
  14. Read a poem.
  15. Call someone.
  16. Clean a hotspot in your home.
  17. Jot down ideas for future writings or blog posts.
  18. Write a listicle – like this one. 😉

Now go and enjoy your tea.
