    In recent years I have been taking care of myself and I have started to pay more attention to my health to make my life healthier and more complete.
    I sleep more and better, I have breakfast (years ago I skipped it), I drink at least 2 liters a day and I try to do some exercise.
    Among other things I always look for interesting information such as the tips you give because they stimulate me to take better and better care of me.
    Among other things, supporting a friend who suffers from PTSD I started to accompany her to an art laboratory that follows and I admit that she also helps me, although mentally I do not suffer from her own disorder.

    I always use lemonwater in the beginning of colds, mixed with ginger – its the best! And at a time in my life I had a lot of urinary infections, so I always did my homecures with lemonwater 🙂

      I’ve heard of adding ginger to lemon water, which is what I plan on incorporating on some days starting next week. This week I added a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar.

    I know all of this and yet I don’t do it. I am inspired to go get some lemons and other ingredients to make some great waters. And I will be starting with my warm lemon water in the morning!

    Wow! I had no clue that there were so many benefits! My mom made us drink lemon water in the morning because it promotes bowel movements. But this post is a treasure!

    You are very right. I stopped taking lemon water a while back because I misused it and ended up frying my intestines!

      Oh wow! I don’t think I’ve ever heard of that before. I only drink 16 oz in the morning only and not throughout the day.

    I love making my own lemon water. It’s so yummy! It’s so healthy too. It helps me digest and also clarifies my skin.

    Does it matter if it is lemon juice that you buy at the store or is it better to come straight from the lemon? Also, I love all the reasons you give, it makes me want to do it! Would it damage my teeth in any way?
