Metabolism is a word often heard, but most people are unaware of its importance. Metabolism refers to the chemical processes in the body needed to sustain life and is commonly understood as the breakdown of food, transforming it into energy and the body’s absorption of nutrients. Poor metabolism can lead to health problems like diabetes and obesity.

Here are 9 morning rituals that will surely improve your metabolism. You can choose to do one or more and make it part of your morning habit.

Drink a glass of warm lemon water right after waking up.

This combination stimulates your metabolism and cleanses your digestive system. The water should be warm, so it doesn’t shock your system, but you can switch to cold water afterward for the rest of your water intake. Cold water has been proven to increase your steady metabolic rate. You can also add a tablespoon of organic, unprocessed honey to sweeten up the sour taste. Honey is a great antioxidant which makes it a healthier combination.

To make it work, make sure you have lemons in stock. If you want to make a habit out of it, lemons must come in handy. They don’t perish easily so you can keep them in the refrigerator.
