As soon as you get up in the morning, drink the first glass of luke warm water sip by sip relishing it, just like your favourite coffee or juice. Do not brush your teeth before drinking water. This act will take in all the saliva to your stomach helping in metabolism. This saliva which is generated during the night is a good medicine for the body and when it enters the stomach with water, it helps in excretion of waste from your body, quickly making you fresh for the new day. Drink coffee or tea after half-an-hour only. Do not drink water in between the breakfast. Eat only a light breakfast in the morning to keep you lively. Drink the second glass of luke warm water 30 minutes after break fast. Take another round after every half an hour according to your schedule before lunch time, hence fourth glass of water will be considered during this interval, also spare time to move around atleast for fifteen minutes.


Drink the fifth glass of luke warm water before 30 minutes of your lunch break. Do not drink water in the middle of eating food unless otherwise there is a food choke in throat. After your lunch, just consume a sip or two to gargle your mouth. Drink the sixth glass of water a bit hotter than the luke warm water. This will help in digestion of food. Take a stroll in between your lunch and snacks time. Do not use the old plastic water bottles which you purchased from shops. It is better to have a steel water bottle.


Now consume the seventh glass as soon as you are back home, Note that you have drink luke warm water and sip by sip before coffee or tea with light snacks. Relax for 10 minutes and move around your house enabling you to sum up your day.


It's just like morning schedules, drink the eighth glass of water half-an-hour before dinner. Always chew and relish your food properly. Keep it in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. Take two sips to gargle your mouth. Drink the ninth glass of water 30 minutes before going to bed. Sleep well alteast for 6-7 hours to start a refreshing day. Do not drink water in between your sleep time unless otherwise you are thirsty else may disturb the sleep completely.

Be it COVID times or normal days, there is a huge importance of getting enough water for our body. The body contains the majority part as water and it needs water for very important biological tasks. The first thing in the morning what I do is just take one glass of water and then rest of the daily chores. I carry a 1.5-liter water bottle at the office and I completely drink all of the water. When the bottle gets empty, I again fill half the bottle and drink it till I reach home. Thus, in this way,I almost drink 2 to 2.5 liters of water every day. This fulfills my daily water needs.
