20 Immediate Changes That Will Improve Your Health

Chug a glass of water the minute you wake up

Given that the human body is 60% water, the importance of hydration cannot be overstated. Adults are recommended to consume about eight cups of water each day, but the time at which you drink your fluids can also have an impact on your health. While the emphasis should be on getting those 64 ounces a day, drinking two of those eight glasses in the morning right after you wake up offers major benefits.

To begin with, it naturally rehydrates your body, which has gone several hours without a sip during sleep. Even a single cup of water provides your cell’s some much-needed hydration, and thus make you feel refreshed and energized. Adding another glass can jumpstart your metabolism, help the body flush out toxins, and stave off hunger as well because the liquid fills your empty stomach, making you feel full without adding any extra calories. Who would’ve thought a couple glasses of water before breakfast could be so powerful?
