A nutritionist told you the “magic drink” you should drink in the morning.
The healthy drink is much easier to consume on an empty stomach than caffeinated drinks like coffee and tea.
Certain foods and drinks can help lift your mood, improve your sleep, and increase your energy levels.
This is important every month of the year, but even more so in January when people have seasonal affective disorder.
Nutrition therapist and Pure Results ‘Minister 4 Happiness’ Aislinn Cambridge gives her top tips for starting and ending the day. RSVP live reports.
The best way to start the day
There is one thing absolutely everyone should do as soon as they wake up in the morning: drink water, it hydrates your body and lowers blood pressure. When you have energy and want to feel good, squeeze a warm cup of water with half a lemon into it. It’s like magic.
At the end of your day, you should make the same thought about what your body needs to do to digest food before switching to rest and recovery mode with sleep. If you have a meal and try to sleep an hour or two later, it will be devastating as your body cannot digest, rest and recover, the two cancel each other out.
Both your sleep and digestion are affected, and when combined, it has a profound effect on your mood. I recommend walking for at least three to four hours after a large meal.
Do not resort to artificial sweeteners to satisfy your cravings
It is known that there is only one molecule of difference in how your body reacts to sugar and cocaine. However, some believe that reaching for “sugar-free” options is better when trying to eat healthy, but they are actually worse. So-called diet drinks contain an ingredient called aspartame, which our body does not know how to process and which has a negative effect on our intestines and is far more harmful, inflammatory and corrosive than real sugar.
