2. Stretch those lazy muscles
Even if you believe it or not, stretching can really make you healthier. Not just humans, but also animals stretch right after waking up.

3. Drink the elixir
Right after we jump out of the bed, we jump to our normal morning routine to get ready for work on time. But we miss out on the fact that our body stayed without hydration while we slept. So it is very important to have at least 500ml of water right after we get up. It boosts our energy and also helps the digestive system.
