A few days ago, I wrapped up my first 5-day challenge and it was a week filled with learning, growing and hydrating 🙌. Each of the 26 Mompreneur's that joined in walked away with tangible tips on how to include more water in her day. In fact, many of the Mompreneur's learned that by starting their day with water they are setting themselves up for success even before getting out of bed! Wait...what?! How?!
Your body is the most dehydrated when you wake up in the morning. And if you read my last blog post, you learned that dehydration leads to fatigue, brain fog, confusion, and headaches just to name a few. This is not a good way to start your day. But what can you do to prevent those things from rolling in when you wake up in the morning?! Drink 8-12 ounces of water before you even get out of bed.
By drinking water first thing in the morning, you are:
· Giving your body the fuel it needs to wake up and start the day. Your body is made up
of 70% water and it’s essential to effectively perform the many thousands of
processes that occur each day.
· Shaking off the brain fog. Your brain is made up of 75% water and needs it to function
· Flushing out toxins and getting your bowels moving. Water is the major transport
system in the body carrying glucose and other nutrients as well as gases and other
· Knocking out 8+ ounces of water off our total daily water intake first thing in the
So instead of grabbing your coffee to wake up, try drinking water and see what a difference it makes in your morning 💗
