As I sit at my dining room table watching the sunlight dance on the snow, I am looking forward to warming up my body. My first simple and refreshing way is to drink a cup of warm water with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Another favorite flavored water is cinnamon, which is very easy to do by putting an inch of cinnamon stick into boiling water. Turn off the stove and let steep for 10 minutes. Sometimes I replace cinnamon with 1 teaspoon of sliced ginger or turmeric. I enjoy these flavored waters when I wake or after a walk in nature which is the second way I like to warm up. My third way is be giving, whether it is a smile or a donation to a cause. Have you heard that when you give it helps your immune system? Which creates a win/win approach.
Are you ready to warm up from the inside by giving to a worthy cause? The Natural Health Center Of Kalamazoo is providing you an opportunity to help others and yourself. On Saturday, 40% of each $5 fee for the March 21 gluten free , dairy free and egg free cookie class will be donated to the Kalamazoo gospel mission. That is right.
