Wake Up

Wake Up!

So how do we effectively rehydrate after waking up?

The answer is to drink water! Not coffee :).

When you drink coffee on an empty stomach, your bloodstream gets an incredibly fast hit of caffeine. This releases stress hormones that propel you into fight or flight mode. To put it simply, waking up with caffeine tricks your body into feeling as though it is being chased by a lion! Sound stressful? 

By drinking a glass of fresh lemon water with a tiny pinch of salt, you will not only rehydrate but you will also take in essential nutrients and minerals such as potassium, calcium and zinc. A much more relaxing and beneficial way to start your morning.  And feel free to enjoy a coffee shortly after!

I was able to lose excess weight whilst putting on lean muscle and increasing my energy levels. My productivity at work increased dramatically too. I also noticed that my sleep had never been better.
