Since water makes up almost half of the body, it’s quite essential that we drink water frequently and daily. Most people do not know this, but drinking water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning is a great way to start off your day and improve your health and lifestyle. Drinking at least a glass of water first thing in the morning before coffee or any other liquid goes a long way. Keep reading to find out why you should include this in your daily routine…
#1. It Can Keep You from Getting Sick.
To dodge a cold or a flu, you need to keep your lymphatic system, a vital part of your immune system hydrated. A glass of water in the morning will help ward off congestion and ensure proper (and efficient) drainage.
#2. May Prevent Headaches or Migraines.
Dehydration is one of the leading causes of that throbbing pain in your skull. Think of a glass of water first thing in the morning as a measure that helps prevent a headache from developing. (Just be sure you keep sipping throughout the day.)
#3. Clears Out and Improves your Complexion.
Dehydration is one of the primary causes of the development of wrinkles on your skin and dark patches that often show up due to the accumulation of toxins in your system. Keeping your body hydrated from the start of the day helps promote a sustained flow of blood to your skin and releases toxins from your system.
#4. Increases your energy levels in the morning.
If your think coffee or tea is the only way to kick start your day, give water a shot. Water can stimulate faster growth of red blood cells in your system and generates more oxygen in your blood. The combination of these two factors will give you a good burst of energy
#5. Ease Menstrual Pain.
Every month, women suffer from menstrual cramps which can sometimes be unbearable. Drinking water helps to reduce the water retention in the vagina which causes the cramps thus easing the pain.
So ladies and gents, make drinking water first thing in the morning a habit and you won’t regret! Keep drinking through out the day too.
