Thin your blood in the morning. Omega 3-7-9 Krill Review According to a Mayo Clinic study, a person’s risk of heart attack in the winter months increases at least 30% in the first few hours after waking. After a long night’s sleep, especially in the winter, we tend to get dehydrated which makes our blood stickier and more susceptible to clotting. Therefore, you should try to drink a least 8 ounces of water within 15 minutes of walking up each morning.
