Detox Spa Water: recipes and benefits

If you are like me, and you like tasty juices, fruits and berries, but you try to limit the amount of sugar you consume, then you will definitely like my recipe for fruit-infused water. We often hear that we need to drink at least two liters of water per day. To tell you truth, I do not really enjoy drinking plain, tasteless water all day long, so fruit-infused water is a very good alternative. Lemon water is the best. There are a lot of benefits to lemon detox spa water consumption. For instance, lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings. Drinking lemon water can also help boost your immune system. The antioxidants in lemon juice are known to reduce blemishes, wrinkles, and other skin issues. Lemon water will also boost your metabolism if you will drink a glass of it every morning about thirty minutes before breakfast! Just a few of the must-have ingredients for detox spa water recipes are: strawberries, cucumbers, lemons, oranges, mint, kiwi, blueberries, raspberries, and watermelon. Simply combine …

Stockhomssimmet: excitement and cold!

“You can do this. You can do this. Fuck, it’s cold. I can’t really feel my feet. You can do this. You can do this. Ok. we are going to turn around now and then it’s going to be easier with the current. Jeese…Why does not it get better? Ok. I am just gonna slow down and swim on my back. Just breathe.” That is approximately what was going in my mind during today’s swim. The weather was beautiful: one of this rare in Stockholm warm days with sunshine and cloudless sky. A perfect day for a long swim in Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen.
