Why You Should Drink Warm Water & Lemon.


I am always looking for new tips/advise to live a healthier lifestyle. I have my fair share of health issues and if I know its important to start taking better care of myself.

My boyfriends mom recently introduced me to MindBodyGreen.com -- I don't know how I haven't heard of this website before because its absolutely amazing. There are so many great articles to read. 

I always have enjoyed drinking lemon water, but never gave too much thought about drinking warm water and lemon. I recently stumbled upon the following article: Why You Should Drink Warm Water & Lemon. As the article suggests, if you can only make time for one ritual that will improve your health, let it be this..... start the day out with a mug of warm water and the juice of half a lemon

Warm water and fresh lemon juice -- it sounds too simple and the health benefits are too good to ignore. 
  1. Boosts you're immune system.
  2. Balances pH.
  3. Helps with weight loss.
  4. Aids digestion.
  5. Acts as a gentle, natural diuretic. 
  6. Clears skin.
  7. Hydrates the lymph system. 
To read more about the health benefits, head over to the full article here.  

Do you have any daily healthy rituals? I recently found out that I have this nodule (??) on my thyroid, so this past week or so, I haven't been feeling very energetic. I'm now determined to find some natural remedies to help me feel less tired, etc.

  4. I need to start drinking this! I am trying to lose a little bit of weight and due to that, I had to stop drinking my Starbucks in the morning. This seems like it would be so much better (and I'm sure it's much healthier than a 3-drink a day caffeine addiction)!

    1. I need to start drinking this regularly as well, even just plain cold water with some lemon. I have a bad coca cola addiction which I would love to kick.
