Charles went over so many helpful tips for your health and fitness in this episode. One that really stood out is the importance of drinking water throughout the day, and particularly to drink water as soon as you wake up which will help your body flush out the pollutants that your liver created while you were sleeping. You’ll also find that drinking more water will give you much higher energy levels.  We created this awesome illustration to encourage you to drink a glass of water in the morning as soon as you get out of bed.
