Are You Drinking Water at the Right Times of Day?

July 25th, 2018

Drinking 8 glasses of water a day in order to stay properly hydrated is (hopefully) not news for most of us. But, did you know that there are specific times throughout the day when drinking water can actually boost your overall health and cognitive functioning? If you’re like me, you’re probably saying to yourself, ‘water’s water, I need it no matter what time of day’, and while this is by all means still true, research shows that you can actually absorb more of water’s health benefits and improve your internal processes by drinking it at optimal times throughout the day. Science shows that drinking water at the correct times of day can help to prevent common problems such as stomach pain, IBS, bloating, fatigue, overeating, high blood pressure, constipation, and even heart attack and stroke.

On the flip side, there’s also certain times of day it’s advised to forego the H2O, since our bodies are busy doing other things—and need all internal roadways clear in order to do so. Here’s the best times of day to drink (and not to drink) water, in order to maximize its effectiveness and reap all the health benefits that nature’s long-standing MVP has to offer.

    I can’t drink too much water before bed because I wake up in the middle of the night. Or I overheat/have nightmares. It’s a weird thing. Had no idea you should drink water sitting down – oops! I don’t think I ever do that in the morning or before/after workouts!

    Woah! I had never thought about when I was drinking water. Baths always make me feel so dehydrated so I’ll make sure to have a glass before hand!
