Following my newsletter tip, today I want to focus on how important is to drink water in the morning right after waking up.
It not only helps to wake the body up but also to rehydrate it and aid in detoxification: at night our bodies get a rest from digestion, so they go to work in other areas including detoxifying our systems. A lot of these toxins are passed out through the air we breathe out but when we wake up we may still have toxins circulating in our bodies; drinking a good amount of water before eating or drinking anything else helps our bodies finish the job and push the toxins out via our urine.
Another great thing about drinking water in the morning is that it may even help aid in weight loss; by drinking water instead of eating right away, you won’t be mistaking thirst for hunger and your stomach will be more full, helping you to eat less.
It even gets everything moving (talking number 2 here) so you feel lighter in more ways than one! Not to mention, it’s a great way to ease constipation…
Finally, if you want to take it to the next stage, you may add lemon juice that helps flushing the kidneys and the liver and alkalizing the blood; just remember that morning water should be either warm or mildly hot, never cold.
