With a season change upon us, it’s important to take extra good care of ourselves. Therefore, I’ve designed this little 20-step plan, full of tips on how to re-vamp without feeling hungry or doing anything too extreme.
Be prepared to take it easy and wake up the next day feeling better than ever.
1. Start your day with a warm cup of water and lemon.
Ditch the caffeine and instead enjoy a cup of warm water, with the juice of half a lemon and 1 teaspoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. This sets you up for good digestion, boosts your metabolism, and will make your liver very thankful. It’s also extremely hydrating and alkalizing, unlike caffeine, which is very acidic and sure to dehydrate you. Caffeine also exhausts our liver and increases our levels of cortisol, which can lead to an inability to eliminate toxins or efficiently burn fat. Yikes!
2. Drink clean, filtered water all day.
Your water should be either warm or at room temperature or warm so your body doesn’t have to waste any of your energy warming it up before it can be beneficial and hydrating. It will also purge you of toxins and increase elimination. And don’t forget, hydration is the key to vitality and health. After all, we’re made of 75% water.
Bored of regular water? Try infused water! Some of my favorite combinations are: strawberry and mint, peach and sage, cucumber and basil.
3. Start your day with greens.
Have a green juice or a green smoothie for breakfast. (Or both!)
Or simply sit and focus on the breath for at least 1 to 5 minutes or preferably 15 to 20 min.
