It has been a few weeks, Since I have consciously tried to drink more water. I have realized that by drinking more water I can accomplish more, and feel better. I had noticed more and more in the mornings I woke up with sore muscles, and headaches. I do suffer from migraines, but my headaches were happening more often.
I did some research and realized I don’t drink enough water during the day and dehydration can cause achy muscles, and headaches. Knowing what is causing my problem I had to start drinking more water, and for me that was a difficult adjustment to make. I have never enjoyed drinking water, and I have always depended on deluding fruit juice, drink coffee, or Iced tea when I was thirsty. So I started thinking of ways I could add flavor, naturally to plain water, and hoping, better flavor would encourage me to drink more water, as I exercise, swim, Work in the garden, and just do my daily chores.
I hope this video will be a nice easy guide to encourage you to drink more water, and enjoy a more productive day. I have already started feeling better, and that is a very good sign.☺️
I use a combination of herbs fruits or vegetables to add flavor to my water. Before I leave my house I take my Yeti travel mug add ice, water, and a combination of herbs and maybe a slice of lemon or another citrus fruit like tangerine, and I am ready to start my day💪🏻☺️
It is easy just to brew a dark cup of tea, and before drinking it plain, add more flavor to it. Not just flavor, but also ingredients that can calm your stomach, calm your nerves and help you have a better day. I usually have a few things in the pantry, and depending on how I feel, I add to my hot tea : ginger, lemon (dry lemon) mint, honey, and sometimes crushed cardamom seeds for more flavor. Crystallized ginger slowly melts in hot tea and adds more antioxidants, it is anti inflammatory , eases headaches & migraines, and lowers blood pressure. Adding lemon to your tea, can boost your immune system and increase your vitamin C intake. Honey is great for soothing a sore throat, and sweetening your tea naturally. Adding mint to hot tea reduces headaches, Improves immune system, and helps digestive system. And my favorite candied orange slices, add natural sweetness, wonderful flavor, and vitamin C. Today, take a few minutes, and treat yourself to a hot cup of tea, any way you like It ☺️
Not only tart cherries are beautiful, and great in a pie, they are also a great drink to have before a workout. Drinking the juice twice a day for at least seven days before a big race or event can help to ease the pain, and shortens the recovery time.
It also can help with diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, and insomnia. It can also increase urine production, and helps with digestion.
