Fitness Tip of the Day: Skip the Coffee, Jumpstart Your Body With This

Start your day with a glass of water.

Most of us tend to think of coffee first thing in the morning, but one of the best ways to jumpstart your day is to drink a glass of water.

After a good night’s sleep, the body is ready for rehydration, and drinking water first thing will help get the systems going. From cognitive function to digestion, all the body’s processes rely on water.

Not only will early rehydration make you feel better, but you’ll function better as well.

To help create a habit, put your favorite refillable bottle next to your bed for easy access when you wake up.
