In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Imitation/Flattery.”
Leo Babauta is my favorite blogger. His blog, zenhabits.net is my source of wisdom, ideas and inspiration. Leo is very relatable.. He seems very real.. With the same strength and weaknesses, that you and me have.
I have been following his guidelines on mindfulness and it has helped me a lot. Following his another advice, I have quit smoking.. Joined a forum of fellow quitters and so far it has worked wonders for me.
If I were to write a post about something.. Say how to make tea in Leo’s style, it would be in this format..
A quote.. Some wisdom about the topic:
“This morning’s tea, makes yesterday’s distant” – Author Unknown..
Followed by bullet points about the steps:
- Take a clean kettle.
- Fill it with water
- Heat the water to the boil.
- Pour water over tea.
- Let it steep for 3-5 minutes.
Then a couple of pointers about benefits of drinking tea.
Drinking tea is good for you because you don’t have to drink coffee.
Followed by personal experience..
Earl Grey with honey works better for me.
Finally a note for you.. Make drinking tea a habit by treating it as a sacred ritual.
