6 Drinks That Instantly Change Your Mood!

August 14, 2015 2 min read 1 Comment

These real, natural and healthy mood refreshers work wonders for turning your frown upside down. Whether you're looking to clear your mind, soothe your anxiety or focus on a big project, turn to one of these 6 delicious drinks for help!

1) Feeling distracted? Try warm water with lemon!

Water re-hydrates your brain to keep you quenched and focused, and the scent of lemon has been clinically proven to boost your concentration level. Not to mention that warm water and lemon are a great detox duo for cleansing out your system and ridding you of impurities. So drink up and get down to business!

2) Tired out? Try green tea!

Green tea can stimulate your brain waves just as well as meditation. This makes you alert enough to get through your day without giving you a crazy dose of caffeine. Green tea is rich in amino acids, antioxidants and metabolism-igniting properties. It can keep you awake and help you lose weight at the same time.

3) Anxiety problems? Try a chamomile latte!

Chamomile? Try calm-momile. This delicious tea has been known for centuries to reduce anxiety, irritability and stress. Milk from grass-fed cows contains a property called conjugated linoleum acid which counteracts the overproduction of cortisol (the stress hormone) within your system. These two powerful anxiety-busters combined make a wonderfully soothing drink.

4) Case of the blues? Try Greek yogurt or kefir! 

The protein found in Greek yogurt can actually amp up your neurotransmitters to balance out the blues. The probiotics that make up Greek yogurt and kefir are incredible for mood improvements as well. In fact, research suggests that probiotics may be a treatment for depression. So blend up a smoothie with one of these amazing ingredients.

5) Restless and can't sleep? Try tart cherry juice! 

Tart cherry juice has been proven in studies to increase the length of sleep in patients by 90 minutes. That's over an hour of extra snoozing! This is because cherry juice contains high levels of melatonin (the sleep hormone) and amino acids which balance your sleep-wake cycle. Try drinking two glasses of this amazing drink each day for best results.

6) A little annoyed? Try cinnamon chai!

Chai tea is so yummy as it comes in a variety of comforting spices. Cinnamon chai is the best choice for alleviating frustration. It has been clinically proven that the aroma of cinnamon decreases irritability, while chai stabilizes blood sugar levels to induce a calmer, more relaxed state.

Try these drinks and share your results with us! What are some tricks you have learned to improve your mood?

Thanks for the information, I’ve heard that eating pineapple helps you sleep, zinc does relax the mind also. Keep up the good work, Phill.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
