For many people, coffee is the drink of choice first thing in the morning.
The beverage made from what adults think of as magical wake up beans gives the boost of energy many need to get out of bed. However, coffee may not be the best choice for you.
Your mom was right. You do need to drink more water.
According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the best choice of beverage first thing in the morning is a glass of water.
The spokesperson for the Academy calls water, quote “the gold standard fluid for the body.”
Since the human body is about 60 percent water, after a night of sleep, our bodies need to be replenished with water to function properly. If your body is properly hydrated you will feel better, and therefore your energy will be improved as well.
Giving up coffee altogether would be tough. So maybe…start with water and just switch to coffee mid-morning.
