Hundred sips for a day
It takes us a few mouthfuls to finish up a glass of water. Any ideas why we need hundred sips for this easy job instead?
This has to do with our number of stomach movements. Reason is simple. The movement of water gushing down our system equals to the number of movement created by the stomach muscles. So if you drink a cup of water with hundred sips, it equals to hundred times of stomach movements. By increasing the stomach movements, our intestines and digesting system become stronger and healthier.
In fact, it will be ideal if you can stop the sipping till a burp. The burping expels the stale and foul gas deposited in our stomach and discharge through it. The good time to do the hundred sips are in the morning with a cup of warm water. It warms up your body and gives a perk up of the day.
With practice, you’ll be able to feel the water gushing down into your system layers by layers. And the water vibration into the stomach as if finding a way to seep through the root to every single organs. Just like roots absorbing the moisture from the soil.
Its no magic trick, it’s patience and practice that we need. What good things can do without these two elements of life!

You can try having continuously a few sips in a roll, after a few time of practice, this is the trick I conclude.
Have a great day! 🙂

I didn’t know this about out stomachs. I do, however eat and drink slowly. Hot water in the morning with fresh lemon is how I start the day. A coffee latte after. Gotta have some fun.

This is the same concept having eat and drink slowly will get your digestive and movement of the stomach better.
Hot water with lemon is a very refreshing idea! I will try too!
Let’s get healthier and happier by doing all these healthy life style! 🙂

My grandfather was a huge proponent of such ideas. He would also chew each mouthful of food 20 times before swallowing. Such a nice change from the “gulp and shove” method so many of us use, today.

I’m sure your grandfather know how to enjoy the taste of the food not by owning them, is by the process! 🙂

I am doing hte right thing then.I always have a cup of hot water before anything else. Sometimes I put lemon or ginger in it. It is a good way to start the day and makes you feel good.
