Lemon water: is it a ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ or a ๐Ÿ‘Ž from you?

I have been drinking it for 6-7 years now daily and despite all the negative, or I would rather say controversial, views on the above ritual Iโ€™ve neither yellow or decayed teeth and also feel tons better after having a glass of lemon water in the morning.ย 

Doing something daily also creates a habit. It makes me feel good knowing that I can stick to at least one good habit without fail and thatโ€™s yet another benefit of having it in the morning. I have a routine of drinking lemon and ginger water, then I occasionally (that habit is still in the embryo stage ๐Ÿ˜œ) take a greens shot, then I take my vitamins for the day.

If I donโ€™t start my day with lemon water I will most likely forget to take the vitamins and will definitely miss out in the green shot.

Warm water on its own is great to consume before anything else when you get up. So even if you donโ€™t believe in adding lemon or ginger to it – have some warm water … or not.. it wonโ€™t make you into a bad person if you drink or donโ€™t drink it ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ’ฆย 

Ginger is also known for its mainly anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities amongst many other benefits. I personally love it, but again, if you donโ€™t – nobody is going to think less of you๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I just think that you should do whatever works for you and your body and ignore opinionated โ€˜expertsโ€™ out there on what SHOULD be good for you even if you donโ€™t agree with it. What is good for one person might not be great for another. There are more benefits to it than risks.

Iโ€™m reading many posts from people involved in Health and Fitness and I must say that sometimes I have to count till 10 and physically stop myself from responding… sometimes I do write a response, but then delete straight away ๐Ÿ˜œ Itโ€™s not worth the hassle.. I think we should advise people on what to do, express our opinion.. but never push it or be arrogant about what we think is the way to go. One statement, one picture, one quote coming from someone you respect and follow can result in you blindly taking that advice. None of us are experts and none of us are perfect. I used to be that person who would religiously do everything my fitness gurus did… and I got burnt a few times…Now I listen, respect.. but check if thatโ€™s something that is going to be good or bad for me.

Have a lovely day everyone and enjoy doing, eating and drinking (in moderation ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†) whatever makes you happy and your body and mind healthy! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ’•
