    Hey Debshikha

    Awesome Post I Must Say. As We don’t value the importance of drinking hot water. As a human being, we have a bad habit of drinking cold water after coming from playing or even after doing some physical work.

    You have pointed out awesome points related to benefits of hot water.

    Thank you So Much for the post.

      Hello Yash

      Firstly, Welcome to HNBT. 🙂

      Yes drinking water is very important. And I have given you the best times to drink the water. I’m glad this post of mine has been helpful to you 🙂
      Yes, cold water after a play was like ‘Somras’ for us, but mow that I know the disadvantages, I just don’t do it. Hope you dont do it too 🙂

    Hi Debshikha,

    That was a well researched post 🙂

    Yes indeed, there are lots of advantages of drinking hot water, just as you mentioned, and I am SO glad I have my portion right in the morning, on an empty stomach too!

    Mine usually consists of lemon, honey, warm water, with a little bit of Amla juice and Apple Cider Vinegar – thanks to my Dad’s additions of the other two, it’s now called the ‘power-drink’ for us. I have it daily once I am back from my morning walks, and nothing could be better.

    It does take care of your health and well being, making you feel good overall.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

      Hello Harleena Ma’am,

      I’m so glad you visited my blog again. 🙂

      Whenever I have visited a doctor she/he has always suggested drinking atleast 9 glasses of water. So I was pretty curious about it. When I did my research I though it would do total justice to my research if I shared the knowledge with more people. So I wrote this post 🙂

      Infact, drinking water empty stomach has another WIDE range of advantages altogether!!!

      This drink surely gives a wonderful kickstart to my mornings just as morning walk does! Perfect match 🙂
      Amla Juice I had tried but it tasted so bad(though I didn’t add honey/lemon or both to it). That’s why I prefer eating amla raw. And with apple cider vinegar I haven’t experimented yet. Looks like you just gave me a new topic to experiment 😉

      Thank You.
      Do visit HNBT again 🙂

    Hi Debshikha!

    I read your post about the benefits of drinking hot water. You mentioned at least 3 benefits I was not aware of. I know that hot water helps with bowel movement. Also, from my own experience, hot water takes away the congestion in my nose. Like Harleena, I put honey and lemon, too.

    Great info. Keep it up.

    PS: One of the reasons I like your blog is because you add many pictures.
