Here's The Tea: 5 Reasons To Say Goodbye To Coffee

For me personally, drinking coffee was always a chore unless it was a concoction of different sugars. From chocolate syrup to hot chocolate mix, I have tried it all to sweeten up the black bitterness, until I discovered the much simpler, but sophisticated drink, tea.

Here are a few of the biggest reasons why you need to start sippin’ tea.

1. No sugar

Sugar has been scientifically proven to be as addictive as cocaine and has even been linked to causing cancer. Of course, there is the option to drink coffee black, but if you’re anything like me, you like a little coffee with your syrups and whip cream. My typical large sized coffee probably has the sugar equivalency to a couple Snickers bars.

In contrast, tea is often sweet naturally, unless of course, you go for a cup with added flavors and other chemicals — no thanks. Tea has even shown to aid in the prevention of cancer!

2. It’s “hip”

Thanks to Starbucks and white girls wearing Uggs, coffee is so strongly correlated to being basic. Don’t be ordinary when you can sip on something extraordinary.

3. Caffeeeeine!

Most of us can’t go a day without the fixing of this drug, and it’s understandable why. Tea, particularly Herba Mate tea, offers a smooth energy surge compared to the anxious feeling brought about by drinking energy drinks or coffee.

4. Cheap and easy

Tea bag and a cup of water and you're good to go. At most cafe’s, tea sells for under two dollars. Can you say the same about a good (non-black) coffee? The simplicity of ingredients also makes tea much easier to make, and if you’re lazy like me (especially in the mornings) that’s a big deal.

5. Heaps of health benefits

From reducing stress to strengthening your bones and immune system, tea is extremely beneficial to your health. What does coffee do besides yellow your teeth and give you the occasional shits?

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
