Do This Every Morning To Feel Great!

Updated on January 5, 2014

Do This Every Morning to Feel Better!

Do you ever wake up in the morning feeling thirsty and can’t wait for that first cup of coffee? Before you have that first cup, have a large glass of water. Your body will appreciate it.

Rehydrate Your Body’s Cells

After a good night sleep, it is common to wake up dehydrated. Rehydrating yourself first thing in the morning is important because it stimulates cellular growth, which in turn helps the transference of oxygen to all of your muscles and vital organs. With your brain cells freshly rehydrated, you will find it easier to stay alert and focused on your tasks.

Drinking Water Helps You to Lose Weight

Drinking water in the morning before breakfast will give your metabolism a boost that will carry you through the day. Research has shown that drinking more water can increase your calorie burning ability rather than storing your calories as fat cells. Proper hydration can also decrease your hunger pangs by making you feel full.

It Will Purify Your Body

Water naturally purifies your body, especially if you add lemon juice to it. Proper hydration flushes out the toxins and impurities that have built up in your organs over time. Drinking plenty of water will cleanse your digestive tract and will cleanse and purify your colon, giving it a greater ability to absorb nutrients. Adding lemon juice to your water increases the stimulation of the kidneys, which in turn increases urination and maximizing enzyme function. Your liver will also be stimulated and purified.

Oxygenate Your Brain

Drinking plenty of water, as stated before, helps hydrate your body’s cells allowing them to carry oxygen to all of the organs of your body. This includes the brain. If your brain is properly oxygenated, you will be able to think clearer, stay focused on your work and have increased memory. Dehydration is one of the main causes of headaches and migraines. Drinking plenty of water every day will help you to stay hydrated and may help keep away headaches and migraines.

Drinking Plenty of Water Keeps You Well

If you are prone to getting sick more often than others, it could be that you're not drinking enough water. Water consumption is a critical part of maintaining proper lymphatic health. When your lymphatic system is on track, you have a better ability to fight off infection. Drinking water helps flush out harmful toxins from our vital organs, keeping us in optimal health. Keeping toxins out of the body can possibly reduce the risk of serious diseases including cancer.

Heart health:

Water is also good for the heart. Studies have shown that those that drank 5 or more glasses of water a day had a significantly lower risk of dying from a heart related illness.

Skin health:

Beauty is more than skin deep! The skin is our largest organ, and drinking plenty of water will keep our skin properly hydrated, giving it a healthy and wrinkle free glow.

There you have it! Water is the key ingredient in our body’s make up. 2 glasses first thing in the morning and 5 glasses or more a day will change your body’s outlook in ways you could never imagine, so drink up!

      Very, very good article. Although I am a staunch proponent of drinking lots of water, you've given me a few new things to add to my list of reasons for my strong stance on drinking lots of water. For instance the reason for adding lemon to water, that one I must implement ASAP. Thanks again for the very good advice. Rated up, useful, interesting. Facebooked and Pinned, also shared with my followers.

      Thanks for the reminder. I never drink as much water as I should. I think one reason is because I spent years in the classroom -- the only job where you cannot go the the bathroom anytime you want to.
