Staying hydrated throughout the day is essential for your overall health and wellbeing, but it seems there may well be additional benefits to making sure that you enjoy a nice glass or two of the cold stuff in the mornings in particular.
As Medical News Today suggests, replacing your usual morning drink with water, you could take advantage of various associated health benefits, as a result.
For example, it could help with weight loss if that’s a key concern of yours, with a study from 2019 finding that higher fluid intake was linked to improved body composition among young adults. And a previous study from 2010 found that people lost more weight if they drank water before every meal, including breakfast.
It could even give you something of a mood boost if you do make sure you drink water first thing in the morning. Another piece of research from 2019 found that dehydration had a negative impact on mood, while rehydration saw improvements in both mood and fatigue symptoms. So having a glass in the morning could really set you up for the day!
Keeping a bottle or two in the fridge is a great way to ensure that you prioritise hydration, as it’s ready to be enjoyed then and there. You can use the colour of your urine as an indicator of whether or not you’re drinking enough. It should be pale yellow in colour and if you notice that it’s darker, it’s a signal that you should increase your water intake.
