greenteaHappy Monday Everyone!  The winter rain has officially hit the Portland Metro area and Emerald is ready with a de-stressing tip to get you trough the stormy weather.

De-Stressing Tip of the Week: Drink Green Tea
Green tea is very soothing—it contains Theanine, an amino acid that gives flavor to green tea and also promotes relaxation. It is also thought that Theanine is a caffeine antagonist, meaning it counters the stimulating effects of caffeine. So, drink green tea, and avoid caffeinated beverages, since caffeine can worsen the stress response.
