To optimize your day, chug down 16 ounces of water first thing in the morning. Your body is already dehydrated after a full night's sleep, and studies have shown that drinking water immediately after you wake up increases your metabolism by a significant amount for the first 90 minutes of the day.
While most of us know that drinking eight glasses of water a day is optimal for proper hydration, you can also get your daily water source from coffee, tea, and fruits and vegetables high in water content.
If you don't particularly enjoy the taste of water, you can mix it up by adding lemon juice, cucumber slices, or raspberries to your glass, or drink the water in different temperatures in the form of hot tea, ice chips, or sparkling water.
