How Sharing a Simple Cup of Green Tea Every Day Can Improve Your Relationships

Many people know that green tea has a multitude of health benefits. Not only is it delicious and a great way to boost your energy with little to no crash afterward, but it can also improve brain function and ward off diseases due to its powerful antioxidants.

These health benefits can have positive effects on one’s physical health, but did you know they can also improve mental health and relationships? Here’s how.

First, if you are experiencing mental health difficulties, including relationship difficulties, it is a good idea to reach out to a trusted support network or talk to a mental health professional. BetterHelp offers accessible online counseling and plenty of information on navigating and improving relationships.

Improves focus and energy

The caffeine found in green tea releases slowly, as opposed to coffee, allowing you to stay alert and focused for a longer period of time with little to no caffeine crash. 

Not only this, but the antioxidants found in green tea can improve memory and ward off dementia. 

With a higher energy level, you may find yourself more engaged in your relationships. On top of this, increased focus and memory will allow you to become more present for your loved ones.

Mood booster

Some research has shown that there may be a connection between increased green tea consumption and lower levels of depression

The polyphenols found in green tea have shown similar effects as antidepressants on mice and may do the same for humans. Depression and other mental health difficulties can often keep us from having or maintaining successful relationships, so green tea could help to alleviate this barrier.

Creates a ritual

The ritual of brewing a cup of green tea can be a wonderful way to get in touch with yourself and perform some self-care, but it can also be a great way to bond with the people you hold dear. 

Making someone a cup of tea or having a cup of tea brewed for you is relaxing and allows you to demonstrate your love as an act of service.

Contributes to anxiety reduction

A study has shown that the caffeine and amino acids found in green tea may contribute to anxiety reduction, another key barrier to the maintenance of some relationships. 

While it is possible to have healthy relationships while experiencing anxiety, the alleviation of chronic fear and worry can improve the quality of your relationships with your loved ones.

Keeps you healthier for longer

Consuming antioxidants, such as those found in green tea, has been shown to reduce oxidative stress on your body, thus keeping your body healthy for longer. 

Not only does this contribute to improved memory as you age, but it also may decrease the risk of developing cancer or disease. 
Staying healthy for longer allows you to maintain lifelong relationships.

Final thoughts

While the benefits of green tea are abundant, it is often not thought of as a cure for relationship blues. 

However, the multitude of health benefits that green tea offers can contribute to an increase in positive emotions and overall physical health that can allow you the emotional and physical energy to improve your relationships.

Not only this but brewing a cup of tea for the one you love is a caring gesture you can perform that proves you want to spend time with someone special.

Japan loves its vending machines (known as jidōhanbaiki 自動販売機, or jihanki for short 自販機) and its green tea, so it's no wonder the combination of both is a hot trend across the country. The Japan Vending Machine Manufacturers Association notes that there is roughly one vending machine for every 23 people; this means there are more vending machines per capita in Japan than in any other country.
