Avoid caffeine

It may be a habit that one of the first things we do when we get up is go straight for the caffeine hit, but this should be avoided if possible. Since your body has been several hours without fluid, what you actually need is a proper rehydrating drink. Opt for freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice. A cup of hot water with a touch of lemon and honey is also a good way to start the day. If you can, add some ginger as this acts as an extra boost to your circulatory system.
