The Best Times of Day to Rehydrate

Water is my main drink and I try to follow the “rule” of drinking half your body weight in ounces each day.

I also try to chug a bit more down because I often work out and I’m also nursing my daughter.

Drinking when you can and as much as you can is important. But if you are not a person who loves water, try to at least drink at these times of days. It really does count.

  • Two glasses of water when you wake up. This is thought to help activate internal organs.
  • One glass of water 30 minutes before each meal. This is thought to help with digestion.
  • One glass of water before taking a bath. This is thought to help lower blood pressure.
  • One glass of water before going to bed. This is thought to help you to avoid strokes or heart attacks. Water before bed will also help prevent leg cramps (you know those awful charlie horses).

There are so many benefits to drinking water; our body needs it, so make it count!

 

This information was provided to me by my Chiropractor Dr. Dan Talley.  I was also promoted to look at the following website that goes over all of the important points.

  1. Great tips, thanks!

  2. I know I feel sluggish in the morning when I don’t drink water right away. Now I know why!

  3. Since pregnancy, I’ve kept a Nalgene bottle with me at all times, and drink one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I tell myself, “no coffee till you’ve finished one bottle”. At 32oz/bottle, I am able to get a full days worth of water with just two fill-ups!
