Tea Therapy: Samcheongdong's Healing Restaurant

These days, I'm trying hard to alter my lifestyle to be a healthier, happier me. This entails everything from establishing a morning routine of drinking lemon water, stretching and dry brushing to cooking with fresh ingredients, limiting sugar intake and snacking on green smoothies. I'm learning that what we put into our bodies greatly affects how we look, feel and even think. It's a slow process, but I'm getting there.

Hanok Hideaways


The creak of old wooden floors.  The sliding of beautifully crafted doors.  The upward curves of tiled roofs and the enchanting calm of courtyards.  Hanoks, or traditional Korean houses, are delightful dwellings where those who enter them can't help but be hypnotized by their charm.  Constructed in accordance with nature and geographical location, hanoks were the preferred type of home by Koreans until last century.  Due to population growth and lack of space, Koreans in bigger cities have since been forced to build upward and live in unattractive cement structures.  This is especially true in Seoul, where residents prefer more modern homes with larger living spaces.  Still, there are a few places in the Korean capital where visitors can bask in the beauty of the hanok.
