Tip #1 : Drink a mug full of lime warm water, on empty stomach.
It kickstarts your gut, increases metabolism, aids in weight loss, gives your clearer-fresh looking skin, gives a boost of energy, relieves constipation, detoxifies your body, disrupts acid building in the body, gives you loads of nutrients such as vitamin C, calcium, magnesium etc- which help in promoting immunity and fighting infections.
Do yourself a favor, before taking in any caffeine drink plenty of water as coffee/tea are acidic in nature.

Vitamin D supports more than just bone strength. Lack of vitamin D, impacts not just bones density but affects your vital organs functioning; Vitamin D deficiency increases heart related complications and triggers hormone craziness (impacts thyroid too), unusual fatigue, body aches, muscle cramps and depression, dizziness, to name a few. A good balance of Vitamin D aids in nerves functioning, your immunity boosting, improved skin health, stronger bones, stronger immunity and overall health.
Make sure to sit/walk in the morning sun, with your skin soaking in the sunlight. Much needed especially, in times of the pandemic. Your healthy vitamin D levels could be fighting back major infections without your knowledge.
Tip # 3: Get Zen like- Gift yourself 10-15min of calm time.
You deserve it. Gift yourself calm time, before you scurry around planning for the day, doing the chores, caring for others, just let that calmness sink in..for yourself. No one else can give it to you, but yourself with your conscious permission. This strengthens your composure for the rest of the day, staying connected with your inner guidance, with all your internal systems working in better sync ‘for’ you, in your favor.
Tip #4: Mindful eating– pack your meals with at least 50% alkaline food.
Alkaline foods do wonders to the body.
