Shift into Spring #1 – Hydrate
Hello, hello! Here we are, just like I promised, in our Shift into Spring series. Each day for 5 days, I’ll send a simple strategy that paves the way for more lightness, space and clarity to enter your life as we transition into the Spring season together.
For me, these are my five Go-To Shifts as I get ready for a healthy jumpstart in my life. They are like the warm-up stretches before the game. Are you ready to play with me?
Today we begin with Shift #1 — Hydration.
Spring foods promote hydration and counter the tendency for our bodies to produce phlegm and mucus.
Lemon and cayenne, in particular, are excellent at cutting through excess mucus and keeping membranes healthy.
Idea 1: Hot Lemon and Honey Water
Here’s an idea for upping the ante: to a mug of warm water, add a squeeze of lemon, a pinch of cayenne, and a bit of raw honey.
Idea 2: Matcha Tea
Or if you need to replace a morning caffeine drink with something that is packed with antioxidants and revs up your metabolism, supports detoxification and gives you sustained, calm, energy– try Matcha Tea!
I walk you through making that simple drink in the video below:
p.s. A great “starter” matcha tea kit from Teavana can be found here.
Thank you Lisa for your simple hydrating suggestions! These small changes have made a big difference in how I feel? from a 68 year old still growing wife and mom
Great video. Thank you! Just FYI. The link you posted for the starter kit just takes me to the Starbucks website? Is that what it’s supposed to do? I couldn’t find a search bar on it to search for the starter kit.
Thanks again! Love all of your wonderful emails and videos!
Thank you! Do you also add raw apple cider vinegar to your lemon water? I have heard this but not sure why!
Love this post. Lisa you are a bright spot in my day. So much good information and encouragement.
