Citrus Herb Refresher

Life is tough. There is little else to say about it than that. We all struggle, we all fight with schedules, and finding time for others, and finding time for ourselves.  A lot of the time I think we simply take self-care out of the equation because the idea of adding one more thing into the mix is just too stressful. So here I am, giving you permission, to take care of you. An easy way to start is with this simple Citrus Herb Refresher. It’s only a couple of ingredients and you have to trust me when I tell you that you’ll feel better after you drink it. So, if you can, take some time today and settle back. Drink a healthy drink and don’t do anything else. Just five minutes. Maybe tomorrow you can do ten. But please…take care of you.

  • five minutes of alone time

How To Make Citrus Herb Refresher:

Send kids and/or significant other to the store to pick up “forgotten” item (toilet paper usually works, or ice cream…who’s going to turn down ice cream?).

Layer thin slices of lemon, lime, and broken mint into a glass.

Add water.

Sit down for five minutes (or ten if you’re really brave) and do nothing but drink and breathe.

Ignore the phone.

Ignore the chores.

Ignore the dog.

Just take this time for you. Relax. Breathe. Be refreshed. You are amazing.

Pro Tip: Honestly this is basically just lemon/lime/herb water with no sugar added. If you’d prefer a drink with a little more sweetness, try adding in sliced watermelon or a few fresh berries. You’ll miss the added sugar at first, but if you drink this once a day, after a while you’ll start to crave it. It really is that good for you.
