Let your tension melt away



The best online relaxation video I have ever seen.
I am working it into my daily meditation routine
straight after the early morning warm lemon juice (see recipe below).




Squeeze a lemon into a mug.
Add warm, not hot, warm, filtered water.
Drink slowly.
Try not to wince,
it makes cruel wrinkles on your face
and you will not feel serene.

  1. You could go hardcore and have unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar in a little warm water. It has a very strong wince factor but apparently does wonders for inflammation. Try it.

    1. Yes now, about that, is apple cider vinegar the same as cider vinegar? It sounds more special and health giving.

    1. Somewhat like laughing yoga I thought, but without the embarrassment.

  3. That is brilliant medicine: I am helpless with laughter!

    1. I sent it to my son. He's doing his finals and I thought it was the best way I could help.

  4. I like the idea of meditating daily but rarely get peace and quiet. I suppose I could get up super-early (and the lemon juice water would help with the waking up!). Having an extra half-hour's sleep always wins out though.

  5. That sounds like my internal monologue used to! The warm lemon drink made me laugh too because I've done that...

  6. -grinnnnnn- That's a relaxation tape?????? LOL...

    I've not been able to get into regular meditation, although it has been "prescribed" for me. Oh well, perhaps some day.

    Mmmmm, not gonna' work on warm lemon water, first thing in the day either. -grinnnnn-

  9. Dear gods, I have always hated those Daleks and when one was in my local shopping centre - I left, sharpish.

    My favoured morning drink is half a lime, a teaspoon of honey and similar amout of grated fresh ginger. No wince factor there.

  10. Urgh. Tea, that's the thing. And not Daleks!

  11. Lucille, aren't you of the generation that was encouraged to drink PLJ every day? We suffered, but it really did reduce one's sweet tooth.
    Laughed tears at the Dalek tape, and sent it to my more yoga-minded friends, just to show them how it should be done....

    1. No that passed me by, everything was sweetened. But funnily enough I have been finding that the morning lemon juice has curbed my appetite a little. When I remember to make it.

  12. What tooth enamel I have left must be protected . According to my dentist it's about as frail as a cave painting ( and no ... not quite as old )
