Do you wake up and crave coffee right away…If so you are not alone. So many times these morning cravings are formed out of habit and are more a psychological trigger than a need. Many people FEEL they need coffee to wake up in the morning, to feel refreshed or charged to face the day.
Well today on the last day of 2017 I am challenging you to replace that habit with a new one. Now don’t get crazy on me and think I am telling you to eliminate all caffeine from your life, all I am simply saying is don’t let coffee or tea be your first drink of the day. Instead start with a refreshing glass of warm water with lemon, mint and ginger in it. Trust me this drink will create the ZING you are looking for first thing in the morning.
Not only is this drink refreshing, it is healthy for you and a great way to start your day off.
- Lemon’s provide more Vitamin C than oranges and it helps to cleanse your body first thing in the morning.
- Mint adds a little bit of sweetness to the water without any added sugars. It also helps settle your stomach and helps with digestion.
- Ginger adds the zip to this drink. I finely chop 1″ of a fresh ginger root to add to my water, as a little goes a long way with this root. Ginger also helps to settle stomachs and aids in digestion.
So today on the last day of 2017 let’s start our day out by replenishing water we lost overnight while we slept and add in the extra benefits of fresh vitamins and minerals. Trust me if you make this small sustainable change for 7 days, I know you will feel a difference in the morning. Tomorrow is a new day and a new year, this can be the start of a new morning routine that will battle off the sluggish morning feeling and provide the zip you need.
