For the past two months, I have been enjoying water more than ever!! Drinking water on a daily basis was always a struggle for me and to be honest if not for my husbands daily reminder, it can easily go over my head to not drink water. Especially when the options of drinks are endless. For me, sipping on coffee throughout work can make it tricky and I forget to drink water since coffee is so accessible. But so far I want to share my recent desire for water in hopes that it will inspire and encourage you to drink more water as well, while still sipping on some lattes 😉
I am a sucker for fruit & vegetables. I have recently been adding some to my water. As of now my go to is infusing water with the following ingredients|
- 1L of water
- The juice from 1/2 of a lemon
- Sliced cucumbers
- Blueberries if desired
Amazing benefits come with drinking lemon/cucumber water. If you’re like me, sometimes it isn’t until after you actually “Know” the reason of why you are doing what you’re doing, that then you somehow magically own your actions and it clicks! Here are some of the facts I found & that I have experienced in my body throughout the months i’ve been drinking infused water|
- Drinking lemon/cucumber water as your normal morning routine is definitely a pick me up! I’ve actually experienced feeling more awake then if I were to drink coffee.
- Not only does it help you wake up but it is very refreshing and your body will absorb all the goodness of Vitamin A,B, and C.
- It will boost your immune system & will help you against flu’s or colds! Thank the Vitamin C!
Even though it is a small addition to my daily lifestyle, every time I prep it as well as while drinking, it reminds me that I am adding more health to my body overall. Regardless of how small or big your health steps are, never give up on adding more and more healthy choices!
