Hola, Moduvated community!
How is the summer going for you? This month of September I would like to talk with you about one of the daily habits that the majority of us have: I’m talking about drinking the deliciously refreshing cold water, or water with ice.
Drinking cold water, especially in summer, feels heavenly, doesn’t it? It helps you cool down in a matter of seconds, and the heat feels immediately more bearable. But the cooling-down effect is just a quick-fix solution for the hot weather, and not a healthy one.
Drinking cold water is harming our bodies. It shrinks our blood vessels, weakens the immune system, and causes indigestion. My recommendation to avoid this: drink warm or room temperature water to keep health issues away and improve the general wellbeing.
According to Ayurvedic medicine drinking warm water, especially in the morning, can heal our bodies, providing digestive power and reducing metabolic waste that could have built up in our immune system.
My tip: Drink a glass of warm water early in the morning, preferably on an empty stomach. Warm water breaks down food particles and passes them out through intestines. Add some freshly squeezed lemon juice for a vitamin C boost, improve bowel movements, and cure constipation.
Follow this healthy daily habit and share with us what how you felt! If you have any wellness-related questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be happy to reply or include the most commonly asked topic in the next Moduvated newsletter.
