Now this is a toughie, and we might have a tie for first place, but topping the charts is our favorite morning beverage of choice – hot water with lemon.
The recipe is simple. We start with a 32 oz. mason jar of warm filtered water and then squeeze in the juice of ½ lemon. This has become a meditative morning ritual for us and as we sip on our drink we recall 10 things in our life that we’re grateful for. While the health benefits of this drink are numerous, the mindfulness that comes with our ritual is invaluable to our overall health and wellbeing.
During this holiday season, it’s easy to get off track and feel as if you’ve fallen off the proverbial wagon (all of our cleansers know that we don’t believe in those old fashion wagons anyway☺), so we like to stay positive, focus on the healthy choices and follow simple daily practices that keep us glowing.
Add this to your morning routine to feel your best. It’s painless, easy and takes less than 1 minute to make. We’ve all got that kind of time!
