Hydrate your body first thing when you wake up.

What is the first thing that you do when you wake up every morning?

I keep a glass of water by my bed, and I drink it down first thing in the morning upon rising.

After that, I let my dogs outside (to go to the bathroom), and head straight for the kitchen to refill my water glass. Then I drink at least 2 more glasses of water.

Now, I’m ready to start my day because I just recharged my body with water after it detoxed during the night.

The Importance Of Water

Water is a critical component to all life on Earth; it’s water that makes the processes of life possible. There can be no life without water – pure, clean natural water.

Some of the Earth’s water supply is temporarily locked up within its many lifeforms. This is the water that makes up a majority of most organisms, and that means water is locked inside of YOU.

The average adult human is 50-65% water. The percentage of water in infants is much higher, typically around 75-78% water, dropping to 65% by one year of age.

So, make sure to drink plenty of pure and natural water daily because without it, there wouldn’t be a clean and healthy YOU.

Your Body’s Cleaning Crew

Drink water first thing in the morning.

Lots of body activity takes place while you are asleep. During a good night’s sleep, your body repairs damaged cells, heals broken bones, seals cuts, and lightens your bruises. And at night, your body detoxes.

Think of your body as having a personal, nighttime cleaning service similar to the cleaning crew that comes to clean your office at night when you’re home from work. Without YOU being in their way, the cleaning crew can empty trash, vacuum, and mop the floors in a few hours. By morning, all the waste is thrown in the dumpster.

This is what happens when you are asleep. You are “out of the way” while you sleep – when your body cleans your waste. When you awaken, you empty your trash down the toilet, first thing in the morning. 

And this process requires water. Pure, clean water.

If you snore or breath through your mouth when you sleep, you are losing water.

If you spend time outdoors during the day, your body needs to replace that lost water, especially during the night.

If you don’t drink enough water during the day, your body won’t have enough water to properly clean during your sleep, and you will wake up very dehydrated.

The more efficient your body detoxes during your sleep, the more water it will use, so first thing in the morning, replace your body’s water supply by drinking one, two, or maybe three glasses of water first thing out of bed.

The Health Benefits Of Water

I write many articles about water because staying hydrated is very important for good health. Drinking ample pure spring water throughout the day, and first thing upon rising in the morning, has a multitude of health benefits.

Water keeps you young by keeping your skin younger looking. Water flushes wastes and toxins out of your kidneys, and it can help you lose weight, and keep those extra pounds off by curbing your appetite for fats and simple carbs.

Staying hydrated keeps your body pH in balance, and it helps your hormone balance.

Water helps you maintain energy, and avoid blood sugar swings. Water is important as a staple for children, and for your pets.

Bottoms up. And remember to drink a glass or two, or three, of pure water first thing in the morning.
