Sometimes we just feel blah! We think “What’s wrong?” Have you ever felt that way? Do your ask yourself “How do I increase my energy levels so I can keep going through the day?”
Well, you have to start somewhere!
There’s something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember which is having a lemon drink upon rising. Never once have I yearned for a plain cup of tea, and definitely not a cup of coffee. Unlike most people in this world we live in, I can’t stand coffee!
No, I find it’s not a chore but something my body seems to desire, so it’s easy for me to do.
Now you can simply squeeze half a lemon
into some room temperature filtered water
and drink it at least 10 minutes before you eat any food…
or you can do what I do and
make it into something really special!
Over the years I’ve developed it into something rather special and now both my husband and myself really look forward to it. I add lemon, ginger and honey to a high antioxidant tea… and it’s so yum. I can show you how I make it here… Lemon Ginger Honey Tea Recipe
But although it’s nice to have, what really are the benefits of doing it first thing in the morning? If you are looking for something that will help you to detoxify, improve your digestion, boost your metabolism AND your energy levels you cannot go wrong with an early morning lemon drink.
And do you know what? Who-hoo, this is the best part…
It helps fight the aging process… to slow it down!
Oh well, I guess it’s a matter of how old you are as to how exciting you find that statement!
There are a number of other great benefits from drinking lemon juice early in the morning, but to really top it all off, it helps us to lose fat… naturally. It’s just part of the package. So that’s gotta be good!

How’s all that from a humble lemon drink?
It’s best if you can use organic lemons because we need to side-step as many sprays and pesticides as we possibly can. If the lemon is only small, use the entire one. Not all lemons are the same… we have small and big, thick skinned and thin skinned. It’s according to what you find still tastes good.
So if you’re asking yourself “How do I increase my energy levels?” try lemon juice first thing in the morning. It’s a wonderful start to the day and a wonderful habit to get in to. If you have already been doing this, have you found it’s helping you? Leave your comments and I’ll get back to you soon.
