Welcome back to another wonderful Monday, yolks! Happy to have you back! We’re going to keep discussing tips on how to improve your morning routine from the article, “7 Morning Habits That Can Affect Your Entire Day” by Danielle Braff.
Think, when you wake up in the morning, when is the last time you had a sip of water?
Probably not for at least 7 or 8 hours (hopefully).
Well, what many people don’t do is drink a glass of water. Your body is dehydrated from not getting any water for the whole night. What it really needs is hydration…not coffee.
Benefits of drinking water first thing in the morning:
Helps to hydrate our dehydrated bodies after sleeping
Promotes the healthy routine of hydrating throughout the day
Aids digestion and gets rid of toxins in the body
Makes you feel fuller and prevents your body from mistaking thirst as hunger
Dr. Maria Peña who specializes in obesity medicine at Mount Sinai in New York states, “Proper hydration aids our bodies. It keeps skin plump and joints lubricated. Additionally, drinking water can help with fatigue, often felt in the morning.”
So, make sure water is the first thing you drink in the morning.

Stay happy, healthy, and hydrated!
