No Caffeine Energy Boost

No Caffeine Energy Boost

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a huge cup of coffee in the morning. Realizing I have become addicted and now just need to drink it to avoid the Huge Headache-by-2pm, I know I need to cut back {hesitation – grimace}.

But, there is hope to cutting back! Yay!

I have found the following to help me re-energize my morning without the caffeine!

Here’s how to Re-Energize Your Morning:

It’s quite simple really. Right when you wake up, boil a cup of water, squeeze in a 1/4 lemon into a mug, sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of Pink Himilayan Salt, pour in your warm water, stir and drink away!

Why?

Warm water absorbs in your body much faster than cold water. See, when you consume cold water, your body works to warm it up, then absorb it. So, we’re just speeding up the process and getting our bodies re-hydrated from not drinking water all night.

Lemon has antiseptic and antibacterial properties. So, it rids your body of toxins and the crap we accumulate the day before comes out in our sweat and pee. Yipee!

Pink Himalayan Salt is great to add to your water because first thing in the morning your body is fighting to reduce your potassium levels and increase your sodium levels. This gives it a boost in the process.

Combining these 3 ingredients gets your body movin’ and shakin’. It energizes you to get your busy day started and boosts your metabolism.

Lulu Lively Tip #1:
Make certain to drink plenty of water throughout the day (you need to drink your weight divided by 2 and change that number to ounces – that’s alot of water, but you need it). Sometimes your body confuses thirst for hunger. So, instead of popping a not-so-healthy snack into your mouth, try drinking water first. Wait 20-30 minutes and see if the hunger subsides. A well-hydrated body, functions much better than a dehydrated one.

Lulu Lively Tip #2:
If a mid-day energy crash is coming on, try eating a tablespoon of coconut oil and a tablespoon of chia seeds mixed together. This will give you a boost of energy.
