Benefits of yoga

Benefits of yoga

 

For me, yoga is a great way to stay healthy in both body and mind and therefore I aspire to do at least a little of this every day.

There is one trillion yoga poses (that is maybe a little exaggeration) and they all help with a lot of different things.

Some helps a lot with digestion, some with losing weight, others with balance and focus. There are even yoga poses to calm down and fall asleep, or to get energized and moving.
I usually do a little of each when I do yoga (I don’t always take the ones to both sleep and getting energized since that seems a little unnecessary, but tailor them more for if I actually need to calm down or if I need to get going for something I need to be pumped for)

 

Today I will tell you a little about the benefits of doing yoga, so that you hopefully will start doing a little bit of yoga occasionally too

Today we will look a little at what foods you can eat/or drink, to improve your mood in a healthier way!

Why I drink lemon water  

Why I drink lemon water  

 

Hellooooo you beautiful creatures!

Today we will look a little at a thing I have a hard time doing. Drinking lemon water.

I usually do this when I feel like I have some time for it, if not, I’ll forget about it because it is a lot of work (well compared to just drinking regular tap water).
Making the lemon infused water isn’t really hard, you just have to cut your lemon and put some of the slices in either a glass, water bottle or a can (I usually use half a lemon)
The hard part though, is having to clean it. You don’t want old lemon slices to stay and make the water go bad. I know, I know. This isn’t THAT hard, I’m just really lazy 😀
Another way to do it, is to just squeeze the lemon juice into the water (which is muuuuuch easier)
