We all know that water is one of the most important factors in staying healthy. Hydrating is key to both bodily health and mental health! When you are dehydrated it’s impossible for your organs to work optimally, and thus your body feels weak, lethargic and quite literally, stuck!
There are things you can do to ensure that your body is running smoothly and efficiently! One of these things is super easy… have a glass of water every morning right when you wake up!
Reasons Why You Should Have Water In the Morning
1. Minimizes Appetite
When you wake up in the morning you’re often famished, and craving a satisfying, carb filled breakfast! Drinking a glass of water in the morning will decrease your appetite and allow you to eat a more reasonable, healthy breakfast… and you’ll still fee satisfied! (1)
2. Boosts Metabolism
Drinking a glass of water when you wake up has been proven to boost your metabolism by 24% for the next 90 minutes. Like the above point stated, having a glass of water will not only help you eat smaller meals, it will also aid in digestion! (2, 3)
When you’re asleep for 7-8 hours a night, it’s only reasonable that you’ll become dehydrated; especially if you had something salty for dinner! Having a large glass of water in the morning helps create muscle and blood cells and it also increases the flow of oxygen throughout your body. (4)
4. Cleanses the Body
Your kidneys can only work properly if they are given enough water. When you have a glass of water in the morning your body can flush out toxins and impurities for your body, with the help of your kidneys.
Add lemon if you want to boost water’s cleansing ability! Lemon is a natural diuretic and it will make you urinate, allowing for enzyme function and optimal cleansing.

Your brain consists of 75% water! When you dehydrate your brain suffers due to lack of fuel! When you feel tired due to dehydrated it’s generally because your brain is telling you it needs more water! Boosting your brain function in the morning is essential for optimal brain function throughout the day.
