  • Stems that are ground or busted up (¼ to ½ cup will do
  • 3 cups of water
  • Flavourings that you like
  • Filters (a coffee filter should work in this case, but cheesecloths or paper towels will work as well)
  • Binding agent (2 or 3 tablespoons of your favourite alcohol will work, or you can use ½ cup of whole fat creamer/milk/coconut milk or ½ tbsp of butter/oil)

1. The first step will involve you having to decide if you want to grind up your stems or not. Many people choose to do so, while others will see no difference in that initial step. It is up to your own personal preference if you choose to grind them or not. No conclusive research exists around which method is better, so do it if you want, and don’t do it if you don’t want to, it’s as simple as that.

Fill up your kettle with around 3 cups of purified water. If you decide you need more afterwards, you can always add it in. If you choose to go with milk or creamer instead, you should be putting this in before you start to boil the water. If you choose to go with alcohol, then you would introduce it when the water has been boiled. This is done so the alcohol won’t evaporate and cause the whole process to be disrupted.

4. Strain and pour your cup of tea.

After you are done stirring for the recommended amount of time, your tea will be ready to be poured and drank. Take the THC-infused water off of the stove. If you want to use liquor with the tea, this is where you would put it in. Find your coffee filter and then dump out the liquid through it into a second pot.

Wisdom and Youthful Energy Combined: Tax Attorney Lance R. Drury

Published

Research done by The American Psychological Association indicates that the average person starts feeling old at the age of 47. This was the most cited age in a survey of 2,000 Americans over 40, with respondents also noting that they begin to worry about age-related bodily changes around the age of 50. Concerns about mental decline and memory loss are prevalent, with a significant percentage of participants expressing fears about their cognitive health deteriorating as they age. Interestingly, fewer people are concerned about losing their youthful looks compared to worries about mental sharpness and staying socially connected.

But at the young age of 70, Tax Attorney at Law Lance R. Drury embodies the belief that age is just a number — not a measure of one’s capabilities. With a career spanning several decades, the spunky lawyer continues to defy societal expectations, showcasing that one can maintain both wisdom and youthful energy well into their later years. Drury’s happy-go-lucky, quick-witted personality offers a refreshing perspective in a world where age often dictates one’s pursuits and achievements.

We sat down with Drury to discuss his perspective on age and how it influences his dynamic approach to life and work.

All In Your Head

Drury’s response to the question of retirement was profound.

“People often suggest I should retire,” he shared. “But staying active keeps my mind sharp and my spirit youthful.”

His days are filled with interactions that span generations, which he believes keep his mind young and engaged.

“Age is just a sequence of numbers that has no bearing on what you can achieve. The only limits are the ones you set for yourself,” Drury emphasized.

Maintaining Purpose and Connection

Drury highlighted the importance of maintaining a sense of purpose. While retirement for some means relaxation and leisure, for Drury, it’s about continual engagement and growth.

“You don’t retire from life; you move towards new opportunities,” Drury pointed out. “It’s essential to keep forging connections and pursuing goals that keep you connected to the world around you.”

He actively engages with people daily, from colleagues to younger individuals, enriching his social life and broadening his perspectives. This engagement, he noted, is key to feeling connected and vibrant.

The Psychological and Social Benefits of Staying Active

Staying engaged in work and social activities has profound effects on mental health. Drury observed that his professional engagements keep his mind sharp and give him a sense of purpose every day. This routine, he suggested, can benefit everyone, regardless of age. The social interactions that come with staying active help prevent the loneliness and isolation often associated with aging.

“Staying active is crucial for keeping your mind sharp and your spirit engaged,” Drury noted.

A Rebellious Stance on Aging

Drury’s approach is rebellious. Especially in the field of law, defying societal expectations that dictate slowing down with age is unexpected. He finds liberation in continuing his work and enjoying life on his terms. This rebellious stance is about acknowledging the aging process while embracing it with vigor and a clear sense of purpose.

“Rejecting the typical narrative of aging doesn’t mean denying the process of growing older. It means embracing it with enthusiasm and a resolve to live fully every day,” Drury passionately shared. “I encourage others to live joyfully and defiantly, irrespective of age.”

Drury’s narrative is a powerful reminder that age should not limit our dreams or capabilities. Whether it’s continuing a career, engaging with diverse social groups, or simply finding new reasons to enjoy each day, his life exemplifies the power of living without age boundaries. Drury’s advice encourages us to look beyond societal expectations and craft a life filled with engagement, purpose, and connection, no matter how many years we have lived.
