There are many routines that I have with the lifestyle that I live and am continuously creating for myself. This healthy lifestyle journey is one that I am truly passionate about so I am very mindful of the things that my body consumes, I am by no means a saint, I do have my moments but the good outweighs the bad with me.
There are 3 things I drink almost every single day and I will be sharing them with you today and why.
I will not tell you that I drink this first thing in the morning when I awake, but it is the first thing I drink in my day.
As most of you know I am a big Fiji water drinker, but I found that I do not enjoy the taste of it with lemon, so I use purified water in this instance. Any brand of purified water will do, just make sure you add lemon. Drinking lemon water in the morning, at least 30 minutes before eating, helps to aide with digestion. There is vitamin C in lemons and as we all know vitamin c is needed for a healthy immune system. Lemon water helps to flush out your system, and you will notice a boost in energy when lemon water is consumed.
Peppermint Tea & Ginger
First let me share that that the cup you see in this photo is the ONLY cup I drink my tea out of. It was my grandmothers coffee cup, she drank out of it every morning. When she passed I keep many things of hers and this was one of them, it’s like I have her with me constantly.
Peppermint tea has similar benefits as lemon water, as in, aiding in digestion…weight loss…and boosts the immune system. There are many other benefits such as peppermint being a stimulant for relaxation. Have a fever? Try peppermint tea, the mentol can cause external sweating while cooling the body inside at the same time. Nausea, bad breath, stress reducer, all the things peppermint tea can help you with.
I add ginger to my tea, and it tastes absolutely amazing. Ginger is a medicinal root and has anti inflammatory properties. There have been studies in many areas, with that, ginger may lower cholesterol levels and could possibly improve the function of the brain. There is an active ingredient in ginger that can assist in helping to fight infections, so if you’re sick then peppermint tea and ginger are the way to go.
I call this water “life in a bottle”, I love it!
Fiji is an alkaline water, with a PH of 7.7, when looking for an alkaline water you it should have a PH of 7 or higher. Fiji water just touches the surface of alkalinity, but taste so amazing. I drink this water all day long, and spend about $15 a week on this water, can we say loyal?
These are the things I make sure to drink every single day to help to have a healthier me. What are some things you drink every day and why? Leave me comments and thanks so much for reading 💋.
