🍎 Today’s Health Question ~ Is Drinking Warm Lemon Water A Good Idea?

According to Nutritionists, Drinking Warm Lemon Water Before Breakfast is a Great Idea

Have you tried hot water and lemon? Nutritionists and celebrities are raving about the benefits of drinking a single glass of hot lemon water 15-30 minutes before breakfast. . . . Drinking hot water and lemon: Gives your immune system a boost – Lemons are packed with nutrients including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. . . . Drinking lemon water regularly decreases acidity in your body and removes uric acid from joints. It enhances enzyme function, stimulating your liver and activating bile flow, which helps emulsify and flush out fat soluble toxins. Keeps your skin blemish-free — The antioxidants in lemon juice help decrease blemishes and wrinkles. Helps you lose weight — Lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings.

🌾 Today’s Poem ~ i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me

e. e. cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
                                  i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

🤗 A Better Life ~ A Good Day Getting Better

Pause for a moment, name five things that happened to you today for which you are grateful.

It’s 8:30 a.m. as I write this post. Here are my five things as of this moment:

  1. I took a long hot shower.
  2. My hot morning coffee as I read the news online (I had more than one cup).
  3. My health (I feel great).
  4. The music I listened to as I did my stretching exercises (Got to get the blood flowing).
  5. The bowl of blueberries I ate with my oatmeal (It’s a great combo). 

Wow, my day is only going to get better. It’s going to be a great ride. I’m holding on.
