10 Facts about Warm Lemon Water to Motivate You to Drink It Every Morning ...


The way you begin your morning sets the tone for the remainder of your day. Since you and I are not Cinderella, waking up singing and getting dressed with the help of some rather noisy birds, my advice is to create a sunny disposition with the next best thing - warm lemon water. Doesn't exactly seem thrilling now does it? But trust me, for a fruit that's so sour, lemons provide some sweet benefits. After reading these facts, I think you'll agree!

1. Hydration

You should aim to drink 3 litres of water a day. It's easier to reach that goal if you start your day off right, with a healthy and hydrated foundation. When sleeping, you spend hours without consuming anything. When your body is dehydrated, or deeply dehydrated (adrenal fatigue), it canโ€™t perform all of its proper functions. This leads to toxic buildup, stress, constipation and more. The word "breakfast" actually stems from "break fast" meaning, you guessed it, breaking the fast. The "fast" was the interval of time you spent sleeping without eating or drinking. Rather than breaking the fast by eating something right away, (or not having breakfast at all which is just as bad), gently prep your body for food by having lemon water first. Use the juice from half a lemon in a large glass of water. Use warm water as cold water shocks your system - picture leaping into an ice cold shower as soon as you open your eyes in the morning ... Not fun! Be gentle.
