There are no ways about it, we all need to drink more water. Very few people are actually drinking the minimum amount required to keep the body hydrated. Depending on the type of activity we partake and type of weather we live in, we need to drink anywhere from six to eight glasses of water daily.
Drinking enough water is essential in making sure the body is doing it’s job like flushing out waste, replace loss of fluids, and keep muscles working. The benefits to drinking the clear liquid are endless.
It’s also important to begin gulping down your first glass of water as soon as you wake up. Yes, most people have a hard enough time getting themselves out of bed to start their day, adding one more thing in the morning schedule makes you want to quit before you start. Nonetheless, you will want to start this routine as soon as possible. Specially when you read all the gains from drinking water first thing in the morning.
#1. Coffee or tea may be your drink of choice to start your day. We are not suggesting you give these hot drinks up, they just need to take a backseat.
Think about it, when was the last time you had a cup of water? Was it late in the evening or worse, in the afternoon? Afterwards, you go to bed and sleep for about six to seven hours.
#2. For decades people in Japan have been following the Japanese water therapy.
The main goal is to drink 650ml of water or four cups of water as soon as you wake up. There is even an ideal time to do this; 6:00 A.M.
#3. You don’t have to start drinking four glasses all at once, pace yourself.
Try starting with one glass and work your way up to four glasses. If you are drinking from the tap make sure it’s distilled water. The easiest way to get rid of the impurities is to boil the water the night before and leave it out.
