So much to do, so little time.
Does that phrase describe how you often feel as a busy entrepreneur?
Your focus is haphazard as you try to pinpoint what you should really be paying attention to on any given day.
Create more social media content?
Start searching for expos to attend?
Have that tough conversation with one of your employees?
Try not to panic about lost sales during the coronavirus?
Figure out why your energy is waning?
There’s so much to think about.
The Success Lifestyle Magazine team strongly believes that it’s important for entrepreneurs to take care of their health. After all you haven’t invested so much time and money into starting a business in Jamaica only to spend your later years in a hospital!
We know that sometimes it’s hard to focus. One part of the issue is the state of your mental health and the fact that you’re trying to do too many things at once. However, there’s also a lot going on with your physical health that’s preventing you from having the focus you need.
We have a solution.
Monique Farquharson, owner of Petit Squares, introduced us to this unique green tea powder in the first issue of our magazine. You can read more about her story here. Her business has been growing and she has taught us a lot about the health benefits of matcha on her YouTube channel.
Here’s some useful information about matcha and a few fun recipes that you can try to get your matcha focus!
What is Matcha?
Matcha is a kind of finely-grinded nutrient powder made from delicately enriched green leaves that have significant benefits to the body. It’s very popular in Japanese tea ceremonies. Although it may be new to Jamaicans, matcha is quite popular worldwide for making teas, beverages and even ice cream!
How Does Matcha Help With Brain Focus?
Matcha’s impact on brain health is ten times that of green tea. L-Theanine is the active ingredient in this unique green leaf powder and is known to reduce stress-related symptoms and improve cognitive function.
What’s Better Matcha or Regular Green Tea?
You probably realise by now that matcha is basically a highly concentrated form of green tea. However, that’s not the only difference.
Green tea is normally prepared as an infusion. This is merely pouring hot water onto green leaves. However, matcha is made by grinding the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis tea plant from which it is made. This allows you to get the true benefits what these green tea leaves have to offer.
How Can You Access Matcha in Jamaica?
From Petit Squares of course. Monique decided to name her company Petit Squares because she wants her business to represent balanced portioning and a healthier approach to sweet treats. Petit Squares mainly sells Petit Poppers that are packed sachets of matcha powder. You can purchase your box of poppers by visiting the Petit Squares website.
What Recipes Help With the Taste of Matcha?
To be honest, matcha is an acquired taste. It has a rich, earthy flavor that can take some getting used to. However, Monique has created a few fun recipes to help you enjoy matcha without losing the health benefits it provides. Her recipes are easy to prepare and perfect for a busy entrepreneur who is always on the go.
