Why You Should Start Drinking Lemon Water

I was at the dentist recently and the hygienist was informing me she could tell that my mouth was a tad bit acidic. This got me thinking — if my mouth is acidic, my body must be as well. I know that too much acid in the body can lead to a number of health issues, so I did what most would and started searching the web for a natural way to restore some alkalinity in my body.

Upon my research, I found that lemon water both restores alkalinity AND has a ridiculous amount of health benefits. I like to think of myself as pretty smart when it comes to putting good things into (and on) my body, but I honestly had no idea that something as simple as this could provide so many benefits. The benefits come from drinking the lemon water at room temp. Lately, I have been bringing a whole lemon with me to work. I’ll cut it up and add fresh slices throughout the day.

What are your thoughts? Love lemon water? Hate it?

Not a fan of lemon water? Greens from It Works! also aids in alkalinity restoration… not to mention, it provides your daily serving of fruits and veggies.


Tips to Balance Your Work and Personal Life

How are you prioritizing the important pieces of your life?

Schedule time for yourself, your family, and your friends with the same priority that you schedule your work. Date nights work well for young married couples. If you are single or your kids are grown, sign up for a class that will help you learn a new hobby or skill. Take a weekly yoga or exercise class that requires you to be somewhere at a given time. Find a TV program that will be a weekly commitment for you to watch with your children. It is not what you do that is important, but that you create a routine that teaches you to turn off your “work brain” and think about yourself.
