Drink 500ml of water when you wake up.
According to a number of sources, Health Experts and Nutritionists, one of the most productive things you can do after you wake up is to drink at least 500ml of water. That's a big glass of water, or a fully filled Stay Sixty® reusable water bottle. There are a number of reasons for this, for example water starts up your metabolism, quickly hydrates you, helps your body flush out toxins and helps give your brain fuel to start the day.
Here are the four key reasons for starting the day with a fully filled water bottle:
- You are dehydrated when you wake up. Your body went 7-8 hours without drinking any water whatsoever. If your body isn’t telling you that it’s thirsty, it probably still is.
- It helps starts up your metabolism. Drinking a cool glass or bottle of water after you wake up has been shown to fire up your metabolism by 24% for 90 minutes.
- Water helps your body flush out toxins. Your kidneys are designed to cleanse and rid your body of toxins. That is as long as your intake of fluids is adequate. Getting fluids into your body right after your wake up will help your body flush out toxins first thing in the morning.
- Your brain needs water to perform. When you’re not sufficiently hydrated, your brain operates on less fuel, and you can feel drained, or experience fatigue or mood fluctuations.
Think of water as a nutrient your body needs that is present in liquids, plain water, and foods. All of these are essential daily to replace the large amounts of water lost through the night and day.
