That first sip of coffee might help you wake up in the morning, but it may be time to replace that first cup of joe with a nice, refreshing glass of water. Drinking water first thing in the morning has been linked to multiple health benefits. Coffee might help you start your day, but consuming water before your caffeine can be more beneficial to you in the long run.
The average person sleeps about 8 hours, and your body isn’t able to gain any water from that time. Ultimately you become dehydrated. This is why when you first get up, your body is telling you to get a drink. Usually that first drink is something other than water, like coffee or orange juice. But, coffee and juice aren’t doing your body any favors — your body will still be dehydrated. Replace that first glass of juice or cup of joe with a glass of water so your body can start on the right track.
Do it for your skin
Not quenching your body’s thirst the right way, by drinking water, means your skin can pay a price. Drinking water first thing in the morning can help increase blood flow, which gives your skin the chance to actually glow instead of looking dry and irritated.
Gets your metabolism moving
Drinking water first thing in the morning can help get your metabolism moving and can increase the metabolic rate by at least 24%. Improving your metabolism can improve your digestive system, also, helping to get rid of any toxins still in your body.
Water is incredibly beneficial to your health. While you might think you drink enough of it throughout the day, not drinking it first thing in the morning doesn’t allow your body to have a proper start to the day.
