Day-to-day life and work pressures all lead to increased stress levels. And sometimes you feel as if it’s all too much to handle. Well don’t give up just yet. The person who said, “When life hands you lemons, you should make lemonade”, may have been aware of the holistic properties of lemons.

Take action:
Starting your morning with a glass of water, with fresh lemon juice squeezed into it, helps promote healthy alkalinity in your body.  This will almost instantly help you feel calmer and better able to handle stress.  Lemon juice also helps you to absorb minerals, which can be good when you take any nutritional supplements.
