Challenge #2: Drink a glass of hot water in the morning
It is a healthy habit to drink either hot or luke warm water first thing in the morning, which is known in Ayurveda as Ushapan. It cleanses and awakens the digestive tract, flushes toxins, hydrates the tissues and encourages a bowel movement. Ayurvedic philosophy believes the first item you ingest sets the mood for the remainder of the day.
Keeping to a scheduled wake up time is a good idea as it gets your body and mind set in a rhythm to gracefully begin your daily activities. Also, try to avoid checking your email, turning on the TV or checking Facebook first thing.
Enjoy your water and enjoy a moment of gratitude for the beautiful day ahead. <3
