Water is an essential element in the human body and keeping hydrated is crucial towards ensuring all of the systems in our body are functioning properly. While it’s importance is commonly known among the general population, drinking water early in the morning can significantly improve the quality of your day. If you’re looking for a particular benefit from drinking water or you simply wish to stay healthy, there are many benefits to drinking water first thing in the morning.

Once you wake up from a long night’s rest, it’s common for the body to be dehydrated. Drinking water early in the morning can help hydrate the cells. By hydrating the body, and in turn hydrating the cells, first thing in the morning, the rate in which new muscle and blood cells are produced increases. Also, maintaining the appropriate hydration at the start of the day will allow for a healthy flow of oxygen throughout the body as well as allowing an individual to stay alert and energized.

Drinking plenty of water in general can help flush out those harmful toxins and impurities that are stored within the body. Water helps keep you regular by preventing constipation, additionally, drinking water early in the morning helps stimulate bowel movements. In doing so, water helps purify the colon, allowing for a proper absorption of nutrients. Water is actually a natural detox and adding lemon can also help increase the rate of urination in the body to augment enzyme function and encourage detoxification to occur within the liver. Drinking water on an empty stomach in the morning can also help boost your metabolism. Removing the unnecessary material from the body ultimately helps maintain a healthy system as well as maintaining regular functions, which can be especially reflected by clearing out your skin.

While drinking water early in the morning and continuing to drink water throughout the day can ensure the body remains hydrated, it’s often difficult for individuals to know what the proper amounts of water to take in are. The body loses approximately 2 liters or 66 ounces of water a day through sweat, urine, and bowel movements. The most basic water requirements suggest drinking enough water to replace the amount of water lost through our day. This is where the eight glasses of water per day rule can be used because this amount of water essentially translates into almost 2 liters of water. Although these are the general drinking water requirements for the majority of individuals, the necessary amount of water to maintain hydration can also differ for each person. A good way of determining how much water each person must drink individually to remain hydrated throughout their day is by measuring your bodyweight, dividing it by two, and the end result actually equals the amount of ounces each person must drink. For example, if a person weighs 200 pounds, the halved result of 100 converts to 100 ounces of water that individual must drink to maintain their body hydrated.

Drinking water early in the morning and keeping hydrated throughout the day is crucial for each individual’s body systems to function properly. While often a difficult habit to follow, making the effort to drink your recommended dose of water each day can fundamentally offer you a healthy lifestyle and your body with benefit greatly from it.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …
