I want to start off the New Year with Health & Wellness tips for all to enjoy.
I have been regularly waking up and going straight for my water with fresh squeezed lemon juice before I start my day. Lemon juice is an acidic juice, but once it enters the body and is digested, it turns to an alkaline base. Viruses and bacteria thrive in an acidic environment and many of our diets consist of an acidic food base unless we are careful about what we eat. Drinking fresh squeezed lemon juice (not the “realemon” juice in a bottle) will give our bodies an environment where germs are not welcome. It will also boost your immune system.
When looking up the health benefits for drinking lemon juice with water, I came across this great website with the many benefits listed and learned a bit more about it….it also helps with weight loss!
A positive quote to start the New Year:
“If we are growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone.”
John C. Maxwell
So get out of your comfort zone and try something new and exciting! Maybe start off with baby steps and try some fresh squeezed lemon juice 😉
Cheers for a great New Year!
