Wanna know my secret for balancing work + wellness?
When you wake up in the morning your fascial system has been hard at work collecting all the waste produced by your cells and moving it towards your lymphatic collection points so that it can be removed from your body. This hydrating lemon water helps support this natural process and get this waste moved out of your body so you start your day refreshed and primed for absorption.
This recipe is 100% customizable and the important thing is to make it a ritual you’ll enjoy. So play around with proportions and ingredients and feel free to use any temperature of water you prefer. Warm water will help extract the lemon oils from the rind, but if you squeeze the juice this won’t matter. This video will show you how I make my Morning Lemon Water:

The pinch of sea salt and squeeze of lemon juice adds valuable minerals, vitamins, and electrolytes. The chia seeds add fiber and help you hold onto hydration longer. This is especially great if you need to head out the door to a job where you perhaps don’t get frequent bathroom breaks or struggle to drink water consistently, as the chia seeds act like a slow-release gel pill that hydrates you over time. If you want to add more flavor try adding fresh herbs such as fresh mint, basil, or rosemary. You can also switch up the citrus by using lime or grapefruit instead of lemon.
Hope this will inspire you to add Warm Lemon Water to your morning routine. If you need more reasons check out my blog post 10 Reasons to Drink Warm Lemon Water with Sea Salt. Happy Hydrating!
