Water is very important for our bodies. We all know that we should drink at least 6-8 glasses of water everyday. Keeping the body well-hydrated ensures that the digestive system is in good working condition and that the skin is healthy, supple and glowing.

Today, rather than telling you why you should drink water, we will tell you when you should drink water.

 

1) After Waking Up

Make it a point to drink 1 glass of water after you wake up. Drinking water at this time, helps the body cleanse its organs.

 

2) Before Having a Meal

Drink a glass of water before having your breakfast, lunch and dinner. The water will help to dilute the digestive juices present in the stomach, which will ensure better digestion of the food.

 

3) Before a Shower

Before going in for a shower, have 1 glass of water. Drinking a glass of water before you shower, helps to lower the blood pressure and keeps the skin hydrated. Irrespective of whether you are having a hot water shower or a cold water shower, always drink a glass of water before you go in for a bath.

 

4) Before Going to Bed

It is very important to have a glass of water before going to bed at night. When you sleep, your body is fasting for 7-8 hours straight. In addition to this, your body naturally rejuvenates and repairs itself while you are sleeping. A good sleep also has an anti-ageing effect on your body. Drinking a glass of water before going to bed helps to keep you well-hydrated throughout the night.

Following this system will ensure that your body is well-hydrated throughout the day. In fact, drinking water at the times mentioned above, pretty much covers up the recommended 6-8 glasses of water everyday!
