Springtime Pick-Me-Ups

1 2 3

Winter has been a gloomy time for many of us. It’s been darker and colder, and seemed to last longer! However, it’s not all doom and gloom - the fresh signs of spring are starting to become apparent- and it is a welcome relief! 



With the right mind-set, passion for change, and a touch of inspiration we can move forward confidently into spring and happier times ahead. 

Spring signifies the beginning of all things new, it is when nature naturally seems to spring back to life after winter. This is at least one reason why it is a great month to set some new goals and make fresh changes for the months to follow. 

After being cocooned for much of winter (where you may have eaten or drunk too much!) your body may be calling out for some much-needed TLC! If you have been feeling low on energy, sluggish, or just off balance- you can ring in some changes to help you move forward and feel better, both on the inside and outside. 

Whether you are looking to shift a few excess pounds or just give your body an overhaul from unhealthy behaviors, Spring season is as good a place to start as any! 


Mood Lifters! 

Here are some tips to inspire you for the arrival of spring: little pick-me-ups with potentially big results down the line! 

  • Prioritize some self-care time! Set aside a time each day that you can devote to yourself. You could take a little nap, sit down with your favorite beverage and read a few pages of a book, or watch a much-loved TV program or movie. It’s great to choose something healthy for your “me” time but the main objective is to prioritize yourself! 

  • Connect with others. As much as we need our down-time, we are also social creatures that require interaction and contact with others. OK, it’s not an easy thing to do presently due to the continued focus on social distancing, but you can make use of several applications and social media that allows you to communicate with your friends and family, or other social groups. 

  • Online fitness. The fitness world has had to adapt quite sharply to the pandemic and transfer its exercise instruction to online platforms. Make use of it! OK, you may not be able to hit the gym but you can still get a great little workout going home. Exercise is one of the best pick-me-ups and mood lifters, it can also help you to destress and get your body back into shape after holiday indulgences! Listening to music while you exercise can help you stay motivated and work-out for longer…so choose your playlist and go! 

  • Take a walk! Numerous studies have linked walking to many health benefits, and the benefits aren’t just physical! Walking can provide a boost to your mental state and self-esteem, help to ease anxiety and stress, heighten your focus, elevate your mood and inspire your creative side. A busy, hectic mind can become overwhelmed with problems, a calm one has the freedom to search for solutions through new perspectives. 

Hopefully, these little tips can prove helpful for you! The main takeaway is that time for you is the best pick-me-up and when you choose healthy things to do with your self-care time, the benefits are even more substantial to your health and well-being. 


RedEspresso pride itself on helping people to relax, unwind and feel better with their energy-boosting beverage creations!

The Original red espresso® became such a huge success that they continued to innovate, creating a full range of healthy alternatives to coffee. Today, they provide healthy beverage solutions that taste great and are good for your body and mind!

Here are three of red espresso®’s healthy and energy-boosting pick-me-ups! 


A “Superfood” Latte made from Beetroot, ginger, and a hint of organic coconut blossom sugar

red espresso® has a full range of Superfood Lattes that include Turmeric, Green Matcha, Red Matcha, and their best-selling flavor - Beetroot!

Beetroots are notable for their high content of Vitamin C and numerous vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, Potassium, and Iron. They are also a great source of fiber and great for improving your circulation. Beetroot contains nitric oxide compounds which help to dilate blood vessels, thus naturally lowering blood pressure, improving erectile function in men, and improving athletic performance.

Detoxing Rooibos Smoothie Powder: 100g

Rooibos tea is naturally caffeine-free and is a wonderful source of antioxidants that can help to reduce the risk of diseases such as heart disease and cancer. The most nutritious, antioxidant-rich component of rooibos tea, however, is the actual leaves. Drinking rooibos tea in the traditional way filters out the leaves and therefore only small amounts of antioxidants actually enter the hot water. The red espresso® Smoothie Powder is made from 100% rooibos tea leaves which allows you to add the delicious flavors of rooibos to your smoothie and to really get all of the health benefits of this amazing tea by consuming the whole leaves in powdered form.

This smoothie is immune boosting, detoxing, and age-defying. The red espresso® Rooibos smoothie powder is a potent antioxidant booster because just one teaspoon has the same amount of antioxidants as 5 cups of green tea, 6 cups of beetroot juice, 10 cups of regular Rooibos tea, and 20 cups of carrot juice!


The Smoothie Powder is: 

•       ✓  100% natural

      ✓  Non-GMO

•       ✓  No additives or preservatives

•       ✓  Vegan

•       ✓  Sugar-free

•       ✓  Detoxing

•       ✓  Age-defying

•       ✓  Immune boosting

•       ✓  Healthy heart

•       ✓  Great post work out recovery

•       ✓  CANSA Smart Choice

•       ✓  Halaal and Kosher certified

RedEspresso’s Rooibos smoothie powder has an extra-strong Rooibos taste and flavor making it ideal for milkshakes, baking, and gelato too.

Simply add one teaspoon (5g) of this unique Rooibos smoothie powder to your morning smoothie for all the immune-boosting, detoxing, and age-defying benefits you need!
