The way you choose to start your morning is crucial to setting the tone for the rest of your day. Eating a healthy and balanced breakfast, especially within the first hour of your day is extremely important, but what about what you put into your body before breakfast?
There is a so much information on the internet these days, especially in regards to the holistic phenomenon that has become so popular. More and more people are choosing at-home, organic remedies over modern-day medication. Many of us are going back to the traditional ways of taking care of our bodies and minds. Mother Nature has always provided us with everything we need to live a healthy and balanced life, and although we agree that modern medicine plays a crucial role in our society, there are many ways that adopting a healthy and holistic lifestyle can change your life.
We know it can be daunting to change your habits and routine, but we promise that if you add this drink to your morning ritual, you will love the results. Drink this first thing in the morning, Lynne swears by it:
- Hot water
- 1 full *organic lemon
- Dash of *organic cinnamon
- 1 tsp of *organic raw honey
- 1 small piece of fresh ginger
*Choose organic ingredients from your local farmers market if possible, but if you don’t have access to these, non-organic is ok too. If you are finding the taste to be strong, after you take a sip, add some more hot water and continue doing so after each sip to taste. One of the largest benefits of this drink comes from the mixing of the ingredients with the hot water so be sure to keep your glass nice and toasty!
Lynne was introduced to this concoction by her mother, and since the age of 16, has been drinking it every morning. The benefits of drinking hot water and lemon is all over the internet, in part because it is raved about by experts such as Dr. Oz and also because people are more and more interested in adopting an all-natural lifestyle. So in a way, Lynne was ahead of her time and has been reaping its benefits for many years.
