Day 1: Drink a glass of water immediately after you wake up
Yes, before your morning cup of coffee. According to a study made by University of North Carolina, a glass of water (especially warm) will help stimulate your digestive system, so your body can better absorb the nutrients, and help food to better move in your system.
Day 2: Than keep drinking it during the day
This is the best thing you can do for your health. Water helps for maintaining clear and healthy skin and raises your energy levels. Also, the water will speed up your metabolism.
Day 3: You get bonus points if you add fresh lemon juice
Squeeze some lemon juice in your water and you get a potion that will protect your immune system but also help you lose a few pounds. Double victory for you!
Day 4: Choose products that have high percentage of water
Watermelon, cucumber and pineapple contain high percentage of water, so they have the same effect as drinking water, but it’s tastier. They will also keep you full and satisfied longer than a bag of potato chips.
Day 5: Don’t skip breakfast
We understand that sometimes you have to rush through the door, but according to a research of the University of Columbia, skipping your most important meal of the day can increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity. So get up earlier and have breakfast.
Day 6: Go outside for lunch
Yes, going outside for at least 20 minutes or less is enough to improve your mood and reduce stress. That is proved by a research made by Stanford University.
Day 7: Or even better, eat outside with a friend or colleague
Meeting with friends or colleagues that have the same lunch break as you can raise the level of Oxycontin, known as the hormone of happiness. Stress is blocking the Oxycontin, whereas happiness and good conversations release it.
