The Magical 20 Minutes and Skincare Routine for the Perfect Morning
Morning routines in households with children can often resemble a well-choreographed chaos dance – waking kids, finding shoes, avoiding food crises, and getting out the door within a somewhat reasonable timeframe. Amidst this whirlwind, we frequently forget to take ourselves along for the journey. But what if we told you there's a secret key to a more balanced start to your day? The Magical 20 Minutes.
Carve Out Time for Yourself: A Pause in Time
We know that when your alarm goes off, hitting the snooze button for another fifteen minutes can be tempting. But what if, instead, you got up and gifted yourself 20 minutes – almost half an hour before the rest of the household wakes up? These moments are sacred, entirely reserved for you. Even though it's challenging, these 20 minutes are a huge gift to yourself. Rise out of bed, shake off the sleepiness, and step out of the bedroom.
Head straight to the window in your kitchen or living room and open it. Take three deep breaths, allowing a sense of well-being to permeate your body. Leave the window open for at least 5-10 minutes to infuse your home with fresh air.
Citrus Tea to Kickstart the System
Starting your morning by boiling a cup of water and adding the juice from half to one lemon – actually 20 minutes before you have breakfast – is a great idea. With just half a deciliter of lemon juice, you'll provide your body with the essential vitamin C that strengthens your immune system, protecting you from bacteria and viruses.
Lemon juice can alleviate digestive issues such as heartburn, bloating, and gas – a welcome aid after meals, especially when they've been a bit heavy. The antioxidants in lemons help detoxify your body and enhance kidney and liver function.
Furthermore, the acid and pectin in lemons assist in stabilizing blood sugar and regulating your body's acid-base balance. A glass of water with lemon juice in the morning not only ensures fresh breath but also improves oral hygiene.
Incorporate lemon juice into your daily routine and reap the benefits of its healing properties – a small, powerful elixir to boost your well-being. 🍋💚
Skincare: Care with Practicality
While your lemon tea steams and fresh air flows through your home, you can take the next steps in your morning ritual.
