It is not uncommon for people to reach for the coffee cup first thing in the morning to start their day. It has been a part of life for so many years and they probably couldn’t imagine doing anything else after waking up.
However, in Japan the common practise is to drink 2 glasses of water as soon as you wake up. They believe that by doing so, you can help your body prevent diseases as well as hydrating your body.
We all know the importance of drinking water and for good reason. Drinking water has a number of health benefits and drinking it as soon as you wake up does wonders for you. The next time you wake from your slumber, drink a glass of water instead of coffee and you’ll be amazed at how you feel.
So what are some of the benefits of drinking water in the morning?
It Fires Up Your Metabolism
Water has no calories and if you are on a weight management plan this is good news. Drinking water after waking up has shown to increase your metabolism and help you burn more calories throughout the day. Not only that, water fills you up, curbing your appetite so that you eat less calories to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
You Become Rehydrated
When you wake up, your body has gone at least 8 hours without water. Although you probably won’t dehydrate as you sleep, you still lose water through breathing, as you breathe out moisture. Drinking water as soon as you wake up replenishes your body with lost minerals allowing you a fresh start to the day. As our body is made up of 70% water, we need to hydrate as soon as possible upon waking.
As you know our brain is made up of around 75% water and even the slightest drop in our water consumption can leave us feeling tired and unfocused. Drinking a glass of water will not only hydrate your brain, you will feel more alert and be able to concentrate for longer periods of time.
Helps Prevent Disease
As mentioned earlier, the Japanese drink two glasses of water each morning after they wake up. They believe that drinking water first thing in the morning helps your body prevent disease and sickness. Japan’s overall longevity amongst its population is the highest in the world, and has a number of residents over 100 years old. If this can be attributed to drinking water, then it can only be a good thing.
