I always do this. I would drink a cup of water after I wake up. I just feel thirsty whenever I wake up. I don't know what's the reason. Maybe sometimes I open up my mouth during the sleep,lol. A cup of water hydrates my throat and makes me feel better. How about you? Do you have this habit? Please tell me,thanks.

For me it is a nice hot cup of tea when I wake up. I have not been in the habit of drinking water though a lot of people tell me it is good for health.

Hi yenwie84 Yes, I do drink a glass of plain water once i get up. It's a healthy habit. during sleep we don't drink water. SO if there is a deficiency of water in our body, it is immediately taken care of and you feel fresh. Also it helps to keep stomach healthy.

Hi yenwie. I think most of us wake up thirsty. I wake up all night long and take a drink. I always leave something to drink right next to the bed. Sometimes it's juice or water or even soda which I know is definitely the wrong thing to be drinking. I am thirsty all night long! But for me it has to do with the medications that I take. I think you are right about opening you mouth while you're sleeping. Most people do wake up with a dry mouth. I think that's perfectly normal.

I do the same thing. My mouth is so dry when I first wake up that I always have a cup or bottle of water next to my bed so I can grab it as soon as I wake up.

I also drink 4-5 glasses of water after I wake up.It is a very good habit and keeps you healthy after cleasing the system's toxins.My husband had high BP he started drinking for last 2-3 years now his BP has come down considerably.So keep up the good habit and tell others also about benefits of drinking water early in the morning.

I drink a cup of water when I wake up in the morning but it is always mixed with coffee I rarely ever drink water at any time of the day, it's just not my thing. But, I get lots of liquids since I drink a bunch of coffee from the time I get up until the time I go back to bed
