A simple tip for Winter.


Even though it’s becoming colder outside doesn’t mean you can’t be warm and fuzzy inside. I have a very simple morning routine which a couple of the practices repeat throughout the day. And sure enough, it’s the simplest of them all that for me have been the most life changing! It helps warm up your body and keep the energy flowing.

Drink warm water first thing in the morning in place of cold or room temp water. It’s best not to overthink it because it is this simple. Ideally the water should not be too hot to drink in a quick manner. You are not making tea so long before it becomes “tea hot”, it is ready. Do Not burn yourself! It’s not worth it and it’s not pleasant first thing in the morning to scorch your taste buds and or esophagus.

There is an internally warming sensation throughout your entire body that’s very comforting. This practice is very underestimated with the power of flushing out stagnation in your systems. It hydrates you faster and stimulates the elimination process from yesterday’s digested food hanging out inside you.

Simplicity at its best, choose warming liquids and foods to consume during these chilling months. I invite you to try it out. Begin to notice the most basic functions in your body improve and becoming more consistent. Remember the warmth you can create from the inside out is this easy when taking the proper steps to support your body.
