I wanted to share with you a few things that I do everyday. They make my mornings better and my days happier. Here are three of my favorite tips!
1. Drink Warm Lemon Water With Turmeric
This is a MUST for me. Before I hop into the shower I turn on my water pot, this way the water is ready for me to drink when I’m done.
I just take my favorite CNBC mug, fill it up, and squeeze about two teaspoons of lemon juice from an actual lemon (not the bottled kind) into it, and then I add a dash of turmeric.
When drinking this I use a straw because I don’t want the acid from the lemon to affect my teeth.
There are so many benefits to doing this: It’s great for digestion, aids in weight loss, it’s great for your skin, and it helps you to maintain a healthy liver. According to Dr. Alexander F. Beddoe’s Biological Ionization in Human Nutrition, the liver can make more enzymes out of lemon juice than any other food.
2. Use A Tongue Scraper Before You Brush Your Teeth
Scraping your tongue can also help to improve your digestion and enhance the flavors of the foods you eat. By removing the guck from your tongue, you’re also helping to unblock your taste buds.
My dad actually made my tongue scraper for me. It’s basically a little piece of metal with a dip in it, but you can find them at any drug store.
3. Dry Brush Your Skin
I would suggest doing this every other day to see how your skin react at first. It might seem like another annoying step, but the results are wonderful! Start from your ankles and scrub in a circular direction up your legs, abdomen, back and arms.
Not only will this help to flake off the dead skin cells but you’ll also improve circulation.Then step into the shower and use your favorite soap or body wash. When you’re done, slater on some lotion or oil and you’re ready to go.
