Tips for feeling great in the morning:
Upon waking drink a glass of warm water with fresh lemon…..this helps to boost the immune system, aids digestion, cleanses the urinary tract by washing away overnight toxins, and improves overall health and well being.
Meditation or Light Yoga
Enjoy some meditation or light yoga for 10 – 15 minutes, time to reflect on the day to come
Have a Morning Green Smoothie
One of the main reasons you’d want to swap your dead, sugar-laden, complex breakfast with a “pre-chewed” morning greens smoothie is to gain access to bio-available nutrition while preserving your precious digestive fire. In this way, your body can focus its energy on other important tasks, like cellular repair, detoxification and the metabolism of that not-so-healthy late-night snack.
Mine usually consist of 1 small banana, handful of flat-leaf parsley, kale, spinach, blueberries and filter water (if I want to make creamy, I add ½ an avocado) – delicious!
