FoodBlog Bytes: Start your Day with a Glass of Water. Your 2022 Goal! ๐ŸŒŠ

You donโ€™t need to make drastic changes to your life to be a healthy person. Making small changes to your daily routine will ease you into following an improved lifestyle that strengthens your health. ๐Ÿ’ช

One step you can take to become a healthier version of you and nourish your body is to start the day by drinking a glass of water. This is beneficial for many reasons, and in this blog, weโ€™ll be explaining why you should start doing so as soon as possible.๐Ÿšฐ

Itโ€™s Important to Avoid Dehydration

When you think about it, being asleep means that youโ€™ve been fasting for many hours, sometimes up to 8 or 10 hours. Drinking water as soon as you wake up helps you stay hydrated - which is extremely important because dehydration is something you really want to avoid. Not having enough water in your system makes you feel lightheaded, dizzy, quickens your heart rate and makes you feel very sleepy among other things. ๐Ÿ˜ด

It Improves your Metabolism 

As it turns out, drinking water on an empty stomach can greatly improve your metabolism. Once your metabolism rate increases you also tend to digest your food faster, which in turn aids with weight loss. Your gut health has a lot to do with maintaining or losing weight. When you drink water first thing in the morning, youโ€™re also decreasing your cravings by getting full. Win-win, right! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

It Helps you Stay Alert 

Itโ€™s safe to say that being alert on a Monday morning makes getting through work that much easier. Just like dehydration tends to make us feel tired, dizzy and lightheaded, drinking plenty of water helps you stay focused, alert and ready to take on whatever you need to do during the day. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Finer Looking Skin and Hair

Say no more. Yes, drinking a glass of water as soon as you wake up can even make your hair look extra shiny while also giving your skin a bit of a glow. As it turns out, one strand of hair is made up of a whopping 25% of water. By drinking more water and staying hydrated in the morning when youโ€™re most likely to be dehydrated, youโ€™ll actually be strengthening your curls significantly. And as you can imagine, one of the main causes of dry skin happens to be dehydration, so drink up! ๐Ÿ˜จ

How many litres of water do you drink?

It Boosts your Productivity Levels

Drinking water helps to nourish your brain and increases its activity level. With our brain being made up of around 70% of water, staying hydrated is good for our brain which, in turn, keeps us productive and sharp throughout the day. ๐Ÿง
