Starting from this year onward, I have a new routine I have been slotting in my morning routine which is drinking lemon water every morning. It's the first thing I do in the morning every day, and I quite enjoying it so far. I take a whole lemon, cut in half, and squeeze the lemon in the warm water and just plong the skin it just to let it steep for more flavor. Sometimes if I'm feeling fancy, I might add some berries, coconut water and stuff. I personally feel like it refreshes me everyday and wake me up in the morning. It's like my caffeine in the morning but without the caffeine?! You know what I mean! :)

There are so many other benefits of drinking water:
