Why Water Should Be The First Thing You Put Into Your Body Each Day

We’ve all heard that drinking eight 8-oz glasses of water a day is optimal, but do you know why water should be the first thing you put into your body in the morning? The 6-8 hours of recommended nightly sleep is a long period to go without any water consumption. Drinking a glass or two of water right when you wake up helps to quickly rehydrate your body. While most people have a cup of coffee first thing in the morning, it's actually dehydrating. A glass of water first thing in the morning also increases your level of alertness, helps fuel your brain, jump-starts your metabolism, and can help you rid your body of toxins. So, when the alarm goes off tomorrow morning, make sure you grab a glass of water before you throw the switch on the coffee maker.
