Simple Thing You Should Do First Thing Every Morning

What do you do first thing when you wake up in the morning? Well, before you do whatever that is, here’s what you should be doing: drinking 16oz. of water. Here’s why:

  • It will fire up your metabolism by about 24% for 90 minutes
  • Getting that fluid right into your body after you wake up helps to flush out toxins in your body first thing in the morning
  • It will help your brain function better. Since Brain tissue is 75% water, your brain doesn’t operate as well when you’re dehydrated. Drinking water first thing will help with this, and will also help you feel less drained and fatigued.
  • It will help you to eat less!

“One study showed that people who drink a glass of water before every meal lost 4.5 pounds over a three-month period, because “it fills up the stomach with a substance that has zero calories,” and people “feel full as a result.”
