OK . . . this sounds SO weird. But I was visiting my Aunt (who lives in Canada) and she drinks hot water in a tea cup or coffee mug after she's had her morning coffee or her evening tea. She simply switches to hot water. She makes it right in her kettle . . . but doesn't use a tea bag.

So . . . I tried it. At first I was just warming my hands on the cup. I love to hold a nice hot cup of coffee, tea or whatever . . . it just feels good . . . even if I don't drink the beverage. Well . . . to my surprise, the hot water was very nice. AND I had the added bonus of getting in some extra water (tea and coffee don't count if they caffeinated).

So, when I came home I began this odd habit of drinking hot water.

Just thought I'd share that tidbit . . . especially with those of you who also have sjogren's . . .

Blessings!

I love this also, but I add lemon to mine. also if you have a sick tummy, a little ginger in the water will soothe the tummy.

My grandmother never drank tea or coffee -- but always had a cup of hot water in the morning. She lived to be 96, so guess it's not a bad habit!

Hehe, Rosie, I saw the title to your thread and HAD to find out what you were talking about!
 
It's quite common up here in Canada to drink hot water.  It's from the generation of ancestors from the UK that brought the tradition over here.  Apparently, according to my grandmother, her father would stand in the shower and drink as much hot water as he could handle first thing every morning. YUM.  How and why she knew that, I don't want to know.... But that's the story! Hehe...All my ancestors on that side of the family lived to be in their late 90's too Lynnwood!  Hmmmmm, maybe they were on to something.
 
Personally, I am going to end that tradition with my generation by always adding a tea bag to my hot water.  Much more enjoyable!
 
Thanks for the cute thread Rosie! I'm glad you are enjoying your hot cup O water! (cheers and clinking tea cups together),

Hahaha, but I have tried it! It's so blah!!!  However, I do agree that it feels mighty good going down the old gullet. 

Clink clink!!

Sooooo interesting.  I just got an e mail about the health benefits of drinking a cup of hot water after every meal.  It supposed to be major beneficial to the heart and vascular system, preventing plaque build up in the arteries and preventing clots!  I'm can't vouch for the legitmacy of the artical, but interesting all the same.  I'm going to have to side with Ginny!  I can't do warm water....no, no!  In fact I don't drink anything hot.  I live in the deep south, we like alot of sugar and ice in very strong tea!!!!  Judy

Ohhhhh Judy, yes, even in the middle of a dreadful Canadian winter, I love to enjoy a cold glass of sweet tea!  MMMMMMMM! One of my favourites!  We Canucks drink sweet tea instead of the "California style" unsweetened variety! Interesting eh!
 
Well, I would have to believe you Judy about the benefits of warm liquids improving the vascular system, etc.  It sort of makes sense doesn't it?  Hot expands, cold constricts. That's interesting Judy.  I'll be drinking more tea and coffee!
