It’s only the second week of 2022 and you already broke the “get back on healthy track” resolution? Well, you are not alone. The post-holiday depression is taking its toll on all of us. And while there is no shortcut to a wholesome healthy lifestyle, there are some hacks that can help you get out of the rut faster, and commit to healthy habits easier.
1. Start the day with ginger & lemon water
According to Healthline, starting your day with a shot of ginger & lemon can help reduce inflammation, soothe digestive issues, and enhance immune function. To awaken your senses in the morning, spice things up even more, by adding a dash of cinnamon or cayenne pepper to the mixture. Research shows that cinnamon may help reduce your blood sugar levels and insulin resistance, while cayenne pepper is an excellent source of provitamin A and vitamin C.
2. Shake up your morning routine with a cold shower
While implementing this habit definitely puts your willpower to the test, research shows that it might be well worth it, as cold showers can be highly beneficial for both the mind and the body. Taking icy showers may boost your immune system and make you more resistant to illness, improve blood circulation, and increase the level of alertness, setting you up for a refreshed and energized start to the day.

3. Switch coffee with matcha
Matcha makes the perfect source of stable energy. The main difference with coffee lies in the way Matcha delivers caffeine to your brain. The caffeine in Matcha is absorbed and released slowly over a period of 6-8 hours, which means it provides a sustainable energy boost, rather than a rapid spike and “jitters” associated with coffee. This new ritual could add just the perfect spice and health boost to your usual daily routine.
