How many times have you made a conscious decision to drink MORE water, and then not followed through. Been there, done that kinda situation, isn’t it? So here’s a little something to urge you to start drinking up to one litre of water on an empty stomach, as soon as you wake up.

Start your morning right, and the day will be a good one. Haven’t we all heard this? So ladies, guzzle a litre of water as soon as you wake up, before you eat anything else, and you will be energetic and super active instantly.
