I am hoping by now, you are loving the first steps of your Ayurvedic Morning Routine and that it is beginning to take roots in your day to day living.
So here is the next little ritual to add – a simple, warm and cleansing glass of warm water and lemon. From an Ayurvedic understanding, warm pre-boiled water is always nourishing and hydrating for the body. Adding lemon to warm water in the morning particularly is a powerful cleansing tool. It kick starts the peristalsis action of the bowel and also awakens the functions of the entire visceral body. It strengthens the digestive fire which becomes slow overnight, allowing you to metabolise food in a stronger capacity throughout the day. To top it all off, it is also extremely beneficial for cleansing the skin which is always a bonus. For more of a read on warm water and lemon benefits, please check it out here.
So to add it to your daily routine, simply place a slice or two of fresh lemon (preferably organic and non-waxed) to some warm pre-boiled water after you’ve scrapped your tongue and done your oil pulling. Sip slowly and sitting down if possible.
As always, never hesitate to be in contact if you have any questions or queries. It’s been so lovely to hear from all of you and share your journey so far!
With love and light,
