I love lemon water....
I drink a hot mug (or few) of it every morning as soon as I wake up, then I tend to continue to drink it throughout the first few hours of the morning if I'm at home, before I then switch to regular filtered water and then onto mint tea during the latter part of the day into the evening.
I'm a sucker for a routine!! Can you tell :-)
There are three things I also know to be true:
- hydrating and cleansing the body are two of the most important things you can do
- small habits are often the hardest to create and actually stick to since they often fool the brain as being insignificant compared to bigger habits.
- everyone (clients, friends, family) who I have introduce to 'lemon water' have reported great results.
So.... it seemed only right to notch things up a gear and get the whole world involved, ok well let's not go too crazy but hey i'd love you guys to come along for the ride.
Starting on Monday August 11th I'll be hosting this challenge:
The 'rules' will be pretty simple... drink 1ltr of warm lemon water first thing in the morning before eating anything else.
One litre I hear you say!?
Yes I know that sounds like a lot- and yes you might find yourself going to the loo a little more than normal to start with BUT it does work wonders, more so than 1 small mug of lemon water. Tried and tested you see. Hydrating the body is so crucial... not just for these hot summer days. I want to make sure you maximise the benefits.
All it really means is drinking two very large mugs full each morning (go and buy a special big mug if you only own small ones!) It is also best to drink it before you eat anything else in the morning, this will create maximum benefit in cleansing and detoxing the body and creating the optimal internal environment to take whatever your days throws at it. Also try and avoid drinking very cold or boiling water- anywhere from lukewarm to hot is fine. Simple use one small organic lemon (or a half a large one) per litre of water.
Put lemons on your weekly shopping list now!!
That's really all there is to it... you can eat whatever you want or would normally for the rest of the day. You may find that this little habit brings about other positive changes in your mindset and eating habits...embrace the change and see what happens! I'll be here for you along the way.
The 'challenge' is totally free, i'll be throwing in some extra freebies for all those than join me, and i'll create a Facebook event in the next few days so we can all be in this together and share experiences...
But you know what...
The main thing about all of this is simply to try something new, create a new habit, break bad habits, change up your morning routine, kick your day off to a good start, create mindfulness. If you only manage 500ml at first that's cool, there is no pressure. The point is that you give it a go and give it your best...
So, who's up for the challenge??
More details to come shortly!
