One way to start your day...
I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite morning rituals that kickstarts my day: lemon water!
So, why do I love this? Well, let me spill the citrus-infused beans on the benefits of lemon water in the morning:
Hydration Celebration: Hydrating our bodies is vital, especially after a night's rest. Lemon water makes this incredibly easy! The infusion of lemon adds a dash of flavor, making it more enjoyable and encouraging you to drink up.
Vitamin C Power: Lemons are loaded with vitamin C, which is fantastic for boosting your immune system. It's like giving your body an additional tool to ward off those colds and infections.
Digestive Delight: Lemon water can be like a gentle wake-up call for your digestive system. It helps stimulate the production of stomach acids, aiding in better digestion and smoother bowel movements.
Glowing Skin: Who doesn't want radiant skin? Lemon water's vitamin C promotes collagen production, helping your skin stay plump and gorgeous. It can even help with reducing blemishes and giving your skin a beautiful glow.
Alkalizing Magic: Despite being acidic, lemons have an alkalizing effect on our bodies when metabolized. This can help balance pH levels, supporting overall well-being.
Reduce inflammation: keeps your body feeling great with its anti-inflammatory properties.
Curb cravings: lemon water helps to curb hunger because it helps your body to feel fuller.
Increased energy: get more natural energy without the caffeine from the vitamin C in the lemon water. Especially helpful if you exercise in the mornings!
Now, here's how you can add this ritual into your mornings:
When you wake up (before your coffee) heat up some water (not boiling, just warm) and squeeze the juice of half of a fresh lemon into it. You can also add a slice or two of the lemon for extra visual appeal! Sip it slowly, savoring the taste and the good vibes it brings.
Of course, listen to your body, and if you have any digestive issues or sensitive teeth, you might want to dilute the lemon juice or talk to your doctor beforehand.
Drinking a glass of warm lemon water is just one of the healthy habits we implement during our 5 Day Reset that kicks off next Monday, 7/24! If you're interested in learning more about what this reset is all about, click the button below or reply back to this email. Doors close THIS Friday!
