“With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea. No matter where on earth you live.”-Sylvia EarleYour daily hydration ritual should start with a large glass of water upon waking in order to immediately hydrate your body and allow for better digestion throughout the day!
Benefits of Morning Hydration and Simple Tips:
•After spending a few minutes in the sun, drinking 16-20 ounces of water can really help to kickstart your metabolism!
•Studies have shown that drinking 17 ounces (0.5 liters) of water increases resting metabolism by 10–30% for about an hour (3)
•Drinking water also induces thermogenesis which augments your daily energy expenditure.•Squeeze some lemon, add a pinch of Celtic sea salt, and a teaspoon of chlorophyll for added health benefits!
•Be sure to drink filtered water. We use and love the Berkey water filter as this filtration system removes harmful bacteria and viruses that conventional filters don’t.
•If you struggle to drink enough water in the morning and throughout the day, consider downloading an app to help you keep track of how much you’re drinking.
